How to Prepare Your Clothes For Consignment, St. Charles, Missouri

If you have clothes you are no longer wearing, selling your items in a consignment store can be a great option. You can prevent garment waste while allowing someone else to enjoy the clothes. However, consignment shops won’t necessarily buy all of your items, and this can be frustrating. The following are some steps to take to prep your clothes and increase your chances of selling. 

3 Steps For Preparing Your Clothes For Consignment

1. Find a Speciality Store

consignment shop St. Charles, MOMany consignment shops sell a particular style of clothing. For example, some will only sell vintage items, while others might focus on outdoor clothes. Recently, there has been a rise in gender-specific and age-specific stores. Be sure that you are bringing your clothes to a store that specializes in your style. Otherwise, they might deny purchases that aren’t in the right style. Split your clothes into separate bins and take each of these to the stores that fit their style.

2. Know What Sells

Consignment shops will only buy clothing that they think will sell, so you need to consider their requirements and buyer trends. Generally, these stores look for clothing that is from recognizable brands, in near-new condition, and in line with current styles. Your local consignment store may have requirements listed on their website, so be sure to do your research.

3. Wash And Iron

Before you bring your items to the consignment shop, be sure to clean them up. Wash your clothes and iron out any wrinkles. You should also carefully fold each piece before putting them in a box or bag. As you iron and fold, double-check that each item is free of holes and wear marks. If you notice any issues with a piece of clothing, donate it instead. If a store sees consistently dirty or worn clothing, this can influence their interest in buying on-trend items that are in good shape.
