My Joy-Filled Life by Sarah
It's Consignment time in my neck of the woods.
There is a HUGE kid's consignment sale held in my area twice a year - once in the spring and once in the fall. Last fall was my first time as a consignor, and I absolutely loved it! I thought I made out pretty good for my first time - I made roughly $500 - cha-ching! There are so many benefits to being a consignor in a consignment sale versus holding a garage sale, listing on craigslist or taking your things to a consignment shop.
Benefits of a consignment sale:
1. You can make more money! You can price your items higher than garage sale prices because a consignment sale is like an “upscale” garage sale. Plus, more of your items will sell at a consignment sale than a garage sale because you will have 1000s more buyers, and a targeted buyers pool.
2. You don’t have to deal with phone calls, meeting places, and no-shows with craigslist.
3. You drop off your things during the convenient drop-off times – you don’t even have to put out or display your things. Just drop them off!
