9. Selection: The variety of clothing you can find in a consignment shop or second-hand store far exceeds that of any traditional retail store.
8. Self-Expression: You are able to be creative and find a look that suits your individual personality. Because of the great selection of different types and styles of clothing, you can try putting several items together that you might not ever find in the same retail stores. Fun fun fun!

5. Value: Shopping in consignment stores provide a greater price-to product ratio—You get more clothes for less money!! More for Less? Always a PLUS!

3. Brand Names: Shopping at consignment stores you will find many name brand items for re-sale. And we’re talking HUGE BRAND NAMES at a fraction of the cost!
2. New merchandise arrives daily: Consignors come in DAILY. That means the selection changes often. If you don’t find what you are looking for today, chances are, it will be there tomorrow.
