Resolve to try consignment in 2014

Resolve to try buying and selling on consignment in 2014. It you’ve never done it before, it’s a wonderful way to save on the newest trends in fashion and also a means to earn a little extra money. Tough economic times have made many of us trim out budgets and tighten our belts. But, whether your taste is cutting-edge, sophisticated or simple, consignment shops help you stretch your dollars and make high-quality name brand clothing very affordable.

At consignment shops, you will usually find a large selection of gently used (and sometimes brand new) clothing in juniors, misses, and plus sizes. To complete your outfit, they also carry a nice assortment of handbags, shoes, jewelry and accessories.

Most consignment shops carry excellent brand names, such as Ralph Lauren, Gucci, Pendleton, Donna Karan, and L.L. Bean. There are racks and racks of dresses, slacks, skirts, blouses, and much, much more to choose from. Their clothing selections are always current, seasonal and comprehensive. All of these items can be purchased at a fraction of their original retail price, making it possible for even the most budget-conscious to buy them. The black satin evening purse and onyx drop earrings pictured are among my favorite consignment shop finds.

Another advantage to shopping at consignment shops is that you can take in your own gently used clothing, and other items in excellent condition, and receive a percentage of the resale value. Ladies, please don’t pass up this tremendous opportunity to find the smartest fashions and chic classic looks at penny-pincher prices. And, don’t forget to accessorize with items that can be used over and over again to complete several different outfits.

Resolve to try consignment for the New Year. You only need to visit a consignment shop once to see the amazing savings. You’ll be glad you did!
