You may be covered in snow (sorry, East Coasters), but it really is spring. Living in Las Vegas, I’m enjoying the season to the fullest. And, yes, that means that I’m motivated to do some purging, organizing, and spring cleaning. There’s just something refreshing about minimizing and letting go of things that no longer serve you. While donating your things is selfless, earth-friendly, and easy, you may want to consider selling your items, instead. If you have any upcoming vacations planned, the money you make from selling your unwanted things could come in handy. Don’t shy away from consignment. The experts at Luxury Garage Sale (LGS), a leading authenticated online luxury consignment store, offer these convincing reasons why you should consign your fashion.
Trends and styles change. Like the seasons, fashion changes. There is no need to hang onto items that aren’t practical or that you won’t wear. If you look at it and ask yourself why you ever bought it, then consign it.
Your wallet will be happy. Selling clothes through consignment is a great way to earn money. And, let’s be real, we all want more money to buy new clothes. Consigning gives you the perfect opportunity to then buy new items to add to your collection.
One man’s trash is another man’s treasure. Just because you may not be in love with the item any longer, doesn’t mean everyone feels the same. Someone else might be dying for the purse you think was so last year.
It’s stress-free. Consignment shops, specifically Luxury Garage Sale, handle it all. From picking up the clothes (or providing prepaid shipping labels) to pricing the items and sending you an invoice, you don’t have to lift a finger. It couldn’t be easier, so you have no excuse.
It’s good for the environment. This is one reason that many people don’t think about. However, you are helping reduce the carbon footprint by recycling your clothes. Not only are you partaking in a type of recycling, you are giving someone else in the community the chance to enjoy a one-of-a-kind piece at a more reasonable cost.
Brielle Buchberg and Lindsay Segal are the founders of LGS, and they explain that in the past, people were not as vocal about shopping consignment or consigning their items. “Today, people have become smarter shoppers and are proud to share when they find a deal or are able to sell an item for cash,” says Buchberg.
“The concept of consigning has now become the norm, so people are consigning more regularly because they know they can buy a luxury item and reconsign later to get some of their money back,” adds Segal.
