Turning your Clutter Into Cash!
By Tara Roark
If you have more possession than you need or need a little more money than you have, maybe recycling those items through consignment or resale is the perfect plan for you! Below you will find not only a comprehensive list of the 5 county area consignment and resale shops but also some tips on how to get the most money for your items.
-Gather your discards and separate them by season and style. Consider only consigning items that are in good shape, stain-free and not too worn or more, and that you believe would be appealing to someone else.
-Visit a few shops as a consumer, paying close attention to the types, brand and prices.
-Check with each shop to get a clear idea about what type of clothes or items they buy: in-season only, antique, designer, etc.
-Inquire about each store's policy. At what percentage do they consign or purchase? When and how are payments made? How many days are consigned items kept? What will be done with nonselling items? Will they be returned to you or simply discarded or donated?
-Keep a record of what you consign, and if you don't hear from the store first, make a note to call a few days before your selling period ends.
Resell! Replace! Rejoice!
