Consignment FAQ

What is a Consignment Shop?

A consignment shop is a store where the store owner will sell items for you and keep a percent of the sales. The advantage of using a consignment shop over donating to a traditional thrift store is that you get money back for the items you drop off. Consignment shops are usually locally owned as well, so using one also helps your local community and economy.

Why Use Us?

Using a consignment shop has three huge advantages:

  • You get money back. After the items sell, you get a percent of the sales.
  • We sell the items for you. You don’t have to do any of the work.
  • We will either donate the unsellable/unsold items, or you can have them back.
