Frugalicious Week…..Day 4 @ Carly’z Corner

Today on Carly’z Corner we are going to continue to explore where to find great deals at low-cost when shopping for clothes, shoes and accessories…etc.  We are going to explore consignment shops!

So that gorgeous dress that you had to have and were going to lose weight to fit into….yeah that one, that is hanging in the back of your closet with the tags still on it!  Or what about your favorite fluorescent leggings with the matching headband and earrings…..that you wore to the Def Leopard concert, that you just can’t bare to part with because of the memories that it brings back…..

Well there is a place for your wonderful treasures….which is not the bottom of the free Goodwill bin 🙂  You can sell your stuff to a consignment shop!

What exactly are consignment shops?  The word consignment comes from the French consigner, meaning “to hand over or transmit”.  Consignment is the act of consigning, which is placing any material in the hand of another, but retaining ownership until the goods are sold or person is transferred. This may be done for shipping, transfer of goods to auction, or for sale in a store (i.e., a consignment shop). – Wikipedia.

Consignment shopping is a great way to find designer clothing and accessories for dirt cheap but also a great way for you to unload your closets and make some cash! I had a friend who purchased her wedding dress  for $30 at a consignment shop and all of her bridemaids dresses too!  Now you will need to discuss the terms of contract with the owner.  Most consignment shops pay cash to you once the item has sold.  Many people keep a running tab and then shop in the consignment store for free!

Whatever works for you, you decide.  But I implore you not to sleep on these stores.  Consignment shops don’t all focus on just clothing and accessories, some cater to just designer clothing, some just to children…like Once Upon A Child, so explore.

I have listed below some of the consignment shops that I have shopped at and others have recommended…..enjoy!
