This N That Consignment Supports Claws N Paws!
Beginners Guide to Consignment
Not all second hand shops are created equal. In fact, there are four different types:
The main differences between these types of stores come down to when you relinquish ownership of your physical possessions, when you are paid and whether or not someone helps you sell your items. Today let’s take a closer look at consignment.
Simply put, consignment is when a shop sells goods for an owner. The owner of the items keeps ownership of the goods until they sell. Once sold, the owner pays a small fee to the consignment shop in return for selling their items.
Consignment shops are locally owned businesses. The shop owner sets their own terms for how their consignments work. Typically, the items for sale will have an identification code on the tag to identify which account will get credit for the sale.
When you decide to sell your gently used items through a consignment shop you drop them off for either a thirty, sixty or ninety day cycle. If your items do not sell during the allotted time period, then the shop will either discount the items or ask you to pick them up.
There usually isn’t a lot of inventory in a consignment shop, meaning that the items being sold don’t have much competition. This makes consignment an excellent choice if you have high quality goods to sell. However, you should keep in mind that consignment shops only accept items that are in excellent condition.
Consignment shops offer a wide variety of high quality items for sale. They have a high turnover rate and there is always something new to see every time you visit.
