How to Utlize Consignment Shops

There are many places to find a bargain. Thrift stores operate with donated belongings. Pawn shops purchase your furniture or jewelry outright. Outlet stores sell overstocked goods. Consignment shops are like a combination thrift store and pawn shop. You place your new or gently used items in the care of the owner. The owner sells it, takes a cut, and passes the rest of the money to you. Following is a guide to consignment shop usage.

  • Decide on an suitable shop. Many consignment shops specialize in specific goods. Designer clothes and shoes or antiques are popular specialties. Once you have found an appropriate outlet for your possessions, compare what you have to what items they are selling.
  • Sort through your belongings. Most shops will only accept new or gently used goods. Antiques would be an exception to this rule, but they may still be rejected if badly damaged.
  • Contact the store. The owner or a representative will need to review your goods before they are accepted for resale. You may be able to suggest prices, but it is ultimately the shop’s decision.
  • Wait it out. If you need cash immediately, a consignment shop is not the best choice. True consignment shops do not offer upfront cash payments, and some locations may only offer store credit for your secondhand items. Typically, you will need to wait for the item to sell and to receive payment. The entire resale process could take months.
  • Decide what to do if your item does not sell. If your secondhand item does not sell, you will need to either pick it up or relinquish it to the shop. Donating the item to a nonprofit organization, like a women’s shelter, is always an excellent alternative.
