Memphis Consignment Shop Round-Up for Moms!

0

We’re all looking for ways to be friendlier to the planet these days, and one major environmental problem is fast fashion or the manufacturing practice of rapidly producing clothing at a high volume to keep up with current trends. Usually these clothes are made of less-than-quality materials and use an incredible amount of resources to make, all for them to be tossed aside quickly due to the poor quality and the expectation that consumers will want the next thing that’s fashionable.

Fortunately, there’s a better way both for you AND the environment: consignment shops!

They’re a great treasure trove of vintage, classic, and modern clothing that is usually of much better quality than the fast fashion offerings. But you might be asking, what’s the difference between a consignment shop and a thrift store? Generally speaking, a Consignment, or Resale shop, buys your items upfront and pays you either cash or store credit. Sometimes the consignor (the one bringing in the gently used items) will be paid after the merchandise sells. A Thrift Store is typically a “not for profit” that’s associated with a charity/church and is selling donated items.
