Reasons To Consign At A Consignment Sale Event

This time of year the weather is nice, we see lots of yard/garage sales popping up and it’s a great place for many moms and consignors to buy or sell items. Below we will highlight some of the reasons why Consigning is the obvious choice vs. Yard Sales or online marketplaces (Craigslist).

Specific shoppers for your items. People that attend yard sales could be looking for anything, at consignment events for children they are very specific buyers. They are coming to purchase merchandise for their kids/families.

Organization of the sale. A Consignment sale is normally much more organized than having a table of clothing or having a box full of onesies. Everything is organized for people to see properly, which means an easier sale.

Your pricing at a Consignment Event is much higher than at a yard sale. People at Yard Sales are looking for those $1 items, even when an item is new. Consignment events allow you to price your items strategically to get you the best return.

Money, your return is going to be great. Our average consignor earns $300 from one sale.

Many days, vs. 1 or 2 days. A Consignment Sale Event is over many days and is strategically located in an area that is accessible to many. Your home could be off the beaten path for people to get to.

Marketing. Consignment Sale Events takes marketing very seriously and is dedicated to marketing their sale to their customer base. Find a sale that’s been around for a season or two as well, they already have a following.

Safety. Yep, Safety. Safety at a Consignment Sale Event is priority. Meeting someone that you found an item on Craigslist is not very safe. You’re coming to a safe environment at our Consignment Sale Event. For more on this specifically, check out this blog, it breaks it down.

Safety of products. Another Safety issue is RECALLS. The Clothing Tree Consignors check their merchandise against the Recall List.

Variety. At a yard sale the Smith family has two twin boys, so you’re options are going to be boy items and that were specific to the Smith family’s tastes. At a Consignment Sale Event you will have many options and variety of goods. From clothing to outdoor and larger toy/accessory items.

Cost. Especially for those new moms, a one stop shop for you to get what you need at reasonable prices.
