Today’s post is brought to you by Megan Podolsky, 529 Kids Consign.
Sometimes I get the question, “Why should I shop consignment?” It’s true that there are a ton of ways to shop these days, but there are even more great reasons to shop consignment. Here are my top 5 reasons to love shopping consignment.
Try out a new style, trend, or designer for less.
I might be biased, but Old Town has the best consignment shops. You can stop into 529 Kids Consign for anything you might need for your little ones or Maternity, head over to Mint Condition or Twist Boutique for an amazing selection of women’s clothing and accessories. You can even shop for vintage finds at Vintage Mirage. At each of these boutiques, you’ll find the best prices on carefully curated, hand selected items. All the items in these boutiques have been carefully chosen at the time of consignment to be of the best quality and style – they’ve basically done half the work for you!
Shopping this way allows you to get the best price so that you can try out a new style, trend or designer for less than retail price.
Get cash for cleaning out your closet and keep clutter out of your home.
Becoming a consigner means you can get rid of any items in your closet that aren’t serving your needs anymore. You can consign them for cash or store credit and get a deal on a new piece that will better suit you. What better way to grow your clothing budget and make room in your closet than to get rid of clothes you don’t wear? It’s a win-win!
Shop conveniently and easily for new phases of life.
Pregnancy is an amazing time, but is not without its challenges. Dressing a growing belly can be difficult, and especially for first time moms, it can be hard to know what you’ll feel comfortable in. Shopping consignment for maternity clothes allows you to try many different brands and styles all in one place. You’ll have a better idea of what you like and what works with your body and style. Plus, you’ll get them at a great price and you might even be able to pass them along again to another expecting mama!
Consignment is environmentally friendly.
The fashion industry is one of the world’s biggest polluters. By consigning clothes and shopping at consignment stores you are helping to reduce that pollution. You’re also indirectly supporting companies that make better quality clothing. Brands with items that don’t stand up to the test of time are often found on the consignment shop do not accept list. This can be especially important for kid’s clothing, it’s great to know that your items will keep going strong even when put to the test by an active little one!
Supporting Local Businesses
Despite the differences between the consignment shops in Old Town, what is the one thing we all have in common? We’re all independently and woman owned. When you shop at our stores you are supporting not only our businesses, but the local economy as a whole.
