There are two good reasons to consign: it's good for you and it's good for the environment. Consigning is good for you because it keeps your closets and dressers filled with only the things you actually love and use. It simplifies your life and saves you time otherwise spent maintaining under-appreciated possessions. Best of all, it turns your cluttered closets into cash.
Recycling is good for you, your family, and your wallet.
Consigning your items to help a local charity is another way to help others. For example, Savvy Chic Consignment Boutique is a supporter of Warwick's Backpack Snack Attack. (visit www.backpacksnackattack.com for information about the program) Items for consignment (perhaps only a piece or two) may be consigned under a charity's account. Once the items sell, the charity will receive a check.
It is also a great way to fundraise for ANY organization!
ARE YOU WILLING TO SHARE IN THE REWARDS AND RISKS OF CONSIGNING?
Since a consignment shop doesn't make money until you do, participating in the process by placing your items on consignment is, in effect, profit-sharing. You do your best to offer stylish, clean, appealing merchandise, and the shop does its best to showcase them in a proper manner, draw potential buyers to the shop to buy, and operate in a professional manner so your goods return the maximum reasonable price to you and to the business.
