  • I LOVE consignment shops! I see everything RIGHT with shopping at them. You save money, have an interesting sellection and you are recycling. Nobody has to know you bought something at a consignment store.

    I've turned so many people on to consignment stores. I even go to high end furniture consignment stores. It's such a great experience and I always meet the greatest people.

  • I don't often because we don't have many here but I love them, and love salvation army and goodwill, as well as yard sales and freecycle.

  • I think its awsome. Before having a baby I use to spend way to much money on clothes. I think if u find something you like and need for less, just wash it and enjoy! and i have given so many clothes to family and friends and charities its a great feeling, so i love to find a great consignment bargain!

  • I'm going to make the distinction between consignment shops and thrift stores. I do like consignment shops but not thrift stores. Consignment shops are very picky about what items they will take and of course you pay the price. I don't normally go to thrift stores because you have to spend so much time trying to find an item you may like.
