Consignment Chic Part 3- How To Make Money The Consignment way

Studio 5’s Jennifer Stagg shows you how from your home to your closet.

Home Again customer, Heidi Clark, isn’t shopping for home goods, she’s selling them.

“I brought in a console table, and a bigger table and then a whole bunch of frames,” she said. “I moved here from somewhere else and I had few things that I just couldn’t get in my home here, that didn’t fit or were just hand-me-downs that I didn’t really care for anymore, so I decided to bring them here because I had been to the store.”

A consignment novice, Heidi says she’s thrilled with how much money she made.

“A little over 2-hundred dollars,” she said. “And it’s the first time I’ve ever done it. So I’m pretty excited.”

Home Again’s owner, Emily Larsen says you might not think your used furniture is worth anything, but why not try to sell it?
The extra money can help pay for your new home decor– or give you a little extra cash.

“I think we’re all looking for a way to maybe make a little extra money, and this is a good way to maybe make a little bit of money rather than giving it to donation instantly,” Larsen said. “Give us a try. There are a lot of people who are a little leery of consignment, but I always say let us try, and you’ll be pleasantly surprised how quickly your items sell and how good they look when they get into our store filled with other people’s stuff.”

But don’t think your closet if off limits to consignment. Namedroppers in Holladay sells name brand clothing—and the owner, Tiffany Colaizzi says you can bring in a lot of cash for your used items.

“I don’t think you need to think,” she said. “If you’ve got stuff in your wardrobe and stuff in your closet that you haven’t worn, what a better way to make some extra money and gosh knows everybody is looking for some extra money. We can go thru your items and decide what we can and cannot use, so if you’re questioning, bring it in, you never know. It’s worth checking out before you just donate it.”

From your home to your wardrobe– customers like Heidi say consigning is a great way to give you some money for things you’re not using anyway.

“It’s just kind of an easy way to do it, and hopefully there is someone else who can actually use it,” Clark said.
