Earning Extra Money With Consignment Stores

I recently got into a financial snag and need help with money. I saw the other day on a TV show that this girl was selling her clothes to a used/vintage store. I was just wondering if anyone knew of any place in El Paso knew where I could sell clothes? Thanks in advance.

Look in your phone book and/or online under secondhand/vintage clothing, or consignment shops to find your local outlets. Usually vintage shops that carry different sorts of clothes from consignment shops, where clothes are generally newer, high-end merchandise. Designer labels are always good.

If you sell on consignment make sure every item is listed and read the fine print of the contract because many consignment contracts end after a certain amount of days/months and the property becomes theirs if it doesn't sell by then if you don't pick it up by the end of the contract.

You could also list and sell items on Craigslist but meet in a public place for the exchange and the terms be cash only.

I went to http://maps.google.com and entered El Paso, TX. Then, I clicked Search Nearby and entered used clothing. I did see quite a few used clothing stores, but some are likely charities, like Goodwill. Call ahead about whether they buy, what they buy, etc. before taking your stuff there. Another idea is if you donate your clothing to a charity, you might be able to get a tax deduction.

When sorting through your extra stuff you no longer need so you can donate it to "charity" or the "thrift" store, how about first dropping it off at a "Consignment Store"? You can make a little extra money. You might be pleasantly surprised how much "extra money" you can make on unwanted items.

When leaving things at a "consignment store" for the first time or two, tell them you want anything not put out on the floor back. They give you that right away. It lets you "see" exactly what kind of stuff that store likes. Unless asked, they usually send all the unwanted stuff on to charity.

If you take stuff to "consignment stores" and they do not put it all out, request all your stuff not placed. Then walk around the corner to the next "consignment store' and leave it. What one store won't sell another might and you have nothing to lose but "unsaleable" stuff that you don't want anyway.
