Questions for Shopping in Thrift Stores

Any bargain hunter delights at the thought of bringing home a great second hand find as a personal treasure. However, conscientious thrift shopping does not come without questions. Get answers to the following questions and you are sure to find a cheap deal that will save money.

  • What is the difference between a consignment shop and a thrift store?
    Both consignment shops and thrift stores resale used items. However, all proceeds from a thrift store belong to that store. Consignment stores pay a portion of their proceeds to the consignor authorizing them to sale such items. Expensive jewelry like genuine gold and silver is more than likely sold through consignment.

  • What type of items do thrift shops typically carry?
    They carry many different items. Thrift shops regularly carry clothes and jewelry. Second hand furniture is also readily available. Some stores cater to used furniture sales, while others offer buyers a cheap place to purchase clothes and footwear.

  • Do thrift shops have regular sale days?
    Yes. Many thrift and resale retail have a weekly sale on different items. Some use a system where certain colored tags indicate a sale item. There may be half off sales or price reductions during a certain time of day each week. Shop owners and management get very creative to bring in new buyers and keep regular customers coming back. The key is: know your thrift shop and remember to put sale dates on your calendar.

  • Can I donate my items to a charity shop?
    Find a local charity shop you wish to donate to. Websites have listings of what charity shops are in need of. Call ahead to make sure there is space for big ticket items such as furniture or electronics. Any donation can be considered a tax write-off under charitable deductions.
  • Association of Resale Professionals
    When you want to make a positive impact on fellow citizens and the environment by recycling and reusing, we can help. Find out more about donating to thrift and consignment stores in your area.

    Thrift stores typically hire several types of employees. The specific types that they hire, however, often depends on the kinds of services that they offer. If a thrift shop is operated as a charity that accepts donations, then it might need a manager with experience running non-profit organizations. Hiring a non-profit management professional could help the organization provide tax incentives to individuals and business that donate second furniture, footwear, clothes, and textiles to the shop.

    A consignment store, however, often sells second hand furniture and used clothes for profits. They can, therefore, benefit from an expert who knows how to evaluate the monetary value of vintage clothes, second hand furniture, and antique jewelry. By discerning the market value of costume jewelry and clothes for men, women, and children, then could improve the profits that the store generates. These experts can also determine how much money they should offer when buying used baby furniture and gold jewelry. This allows the store to offer customers better bargains.

    Whether a shop operates on a consignment or charity basis, it still needs to attract customers with cheap prices. They can often attract more customers by hiring advertising consultants. These consultants can show them the best ways to advertise their cheap resale prices for silverware, jewelry, and footwear. Although this service costs some money, it could help the store earn more in the long run.

    Stores also need sales associates who can help customers choose the items that they want to buy. These employees or volunteers should have strong communication and organization skills.
