FAQs on Second Hand Stores
The following questions are usually asked about finding and buying merchandise from second hand stores:

What's the difference between a thrift store and a consignment shop?
Both thrift stores and consignment shops sell second hand goods, that is, merchandise that has been previously used. Thrift stores often accept used merchandise in any kind of condition, including heavily worn clothing. Consignment shops usually only accept certain kinds of merchandise, and they only accept lightly worn clothing. For example, many consignment shops specialize in selling used name brand clothing, while thrift stores sell all kinds of clothing, name brand or not.

Is it safe to buy used merchandise?
Some people are reluctant to buy second hand goods because they believe they are dirty. This is far from true. It is actually illegal to sell some kinds of used merchandise, and quality thrift stores do not engage in these practices. For example, thrift stores cannot sell used mattresses because they are unsanitary. For all other kinds of used goods, including clothing, furniture, and even dinnerware, the seller takes the time to completely clean everything before the point of sale. You can rest assured that anything you buy in a second hand store is safe to be used.

Where can I find the best second hand stores?
Check your local listings for thrift stores and consignment shops. Many people believe that the best second hand stores are found in the upscale areas of town, where the clientele resale or donate their high-end merchandise. Many local churches and charity organizations also sponsor their own second hand stores where they sell items donated to them. The proceeds go to charity.

Secondhand stores acquire and sell used items at discounted prices. If you are shopping on a budget, looking for unique items, or getting rid of used things, a secondhand store can help you. Before you use a secondhand shop there are a few questions your should consider asking.

  • What type of items do you generally sell?
    Secondhand stores sell a variety of items. For instance, some focus on clothing, while others sell mostly books. There are even stores that focus exclusively on electronics. Before going to a secondhand store, you may want to call ahead and ask what types of items they usually carry, so you will know if they have what you want. If you are shopping for antique furniture or vintage items, you will want to make sure that the shop carries items from the period in which you are interested.

  • How often does the store receive new merchandise?
    Some resale shops receive new items constantly as merchandise is donated or purchased for the shop. A thrift store operated for charity may get regular deliveries of new items, like clothing or toys. The selection at a thrift store may be better on days they receive new items, so you may want to ask when they do.

  • Do you accept donations, sell items on consignment, or buy used items?
    If you are cleaning out your closet, you can donate unwanted apparel or jewelry to a charity secondhand shop and deduct the value from your taxes. You may even be able to make a profit on your used items by selling them to a thrift store. If you have large items to sell like furniture or appliances, you may want to use a consignment shop where they will be sold for a fee.
