Northeast Ohio Consignment Stores

All these items: 4 shirts, 3 PJ pants, 1 PJ set=$11 at a consignment store!
 
Consignment stores are a great way to stretch your clothing budget at Back-to-School time and beyond.  You can get some really cute gently-used, name brand clothes for a fraction of their retail prices.  Consignment stores can even help you add to your budget when you sell clothes, toys, and baby gear your kids are done using.  There are lots of consignment stores in Northeast Ohio, and many of them came highly recommended by our fellow Sisters and Misters.
 
A few tips for consignment store shopping:
  • Look things over carefully.  Most stores are pretty choosy about what they accept to sell, but do a once-over yourself just so there are no surprises.
  • Know comparable prices for new clothes.  Consider what you’d pay for new so you make the best choices.
  • Subscribe to Facebook pages and email newsletters to find out about special coupons and sales–make the most of these additional discounts!
  • Check local coupon sites (like iShopStark or Canton Rep’s Daily Deals) for special savings–several consignment stores offer deals there to get you into their stores, hoping you’ll return in the future.
  • Ask about loyalty programs for return visits and discounts for consigners.  Many stores offer you some kind of bonus.

 

A few tips for consigning outgrown clothes:

  • Make sure you understand how and when you’ll receive payment.  Is it upfront, or after the clothes sell?  
  • Find out what happens to clothes that don’t sell–some will return them to you, some will donate them for you.  Make sure it works for you.
  • Bring your clothes freshly laundered with no stains, tears or rips.
  • Match outfits together–things sell better as outfits.
  • Bring in your consignments at the beginning of the season for the best chance of them selling.

    There is also a good consignment sale in Sugarcreek (just outside of Dover) called the Kids Stuff Sale (http://www.kidsstuffsale.blogspot.com/). I’ve never sold there, but I’ve purchased quite a bit. It’s just like the Lil Lambs sale in Canton but huge.

    Also…if you go to the Lil Lambs sale on Saturday, many items are half off.

    There is a great plus size resale shop in Struthers, Ohio (suburb of Youngstown) called Pretty and Plus. The owner is so friendly and compassionate. She carries women’s sizes 14 to 5X and is also starting to carry big and tall sizes for our gents. She has purses and shoes as well. There is also an assortment of jewelry, candles, homemade soaps and more. Every time you go in, there is something new.

Budget Bin is the biggest non-profit consignment sale on the east side of Greater Cleveland; besides offering great bargains our shoppers are helping to fund college scholarships for graduating seniors at Solon High School.
