Consignment Resale Roundup


Consignment Resale Roundup

My parents always taught us to look for good deals, and with five kids, we had to. Now I am proud to be a second hand shopper for most things. With the ever-increasing rise in consumerism today, you can find some good treasures that are still brand new at thrift stores, Goodwill, and even on resale apps. When I moved to Chattanooga and discovered that there were yearly consignment sales for kids’ items, I was super excited. Kids outgrow stuff so quickly that most of the time it’s pointless to buy new things. Pretty much all of my daughter’s clothes are hand-me-downs, and it will most likely remain that way for a long time.

I have also discovered that there are a couple adult and home sales in the area where you can find some pretty good items. I found a set of brand new Springform pans for $7 last year. To a baker, that’s an amazing deal! You can also make some decent pocket money if you consign at the sales. I made about $100 last year selling at one of the adult and home sales. 

A few things to know about the consignment sales: 

  • If you are a first time mom, foster or adoption parent, you can get into the sale a day early. Just make sure to register for a ticket.
  • As a consigner, you can get into the sale early, but if you work the sale you can get in even earlier.
  • The resale company charges a fee (usually around $10) to consign items and they also take a certain percentage of your sales. This percentage varies from sale to sale. 
  • You have to price and tag your own items and every resale has a different way it needs to be done. 
  • There are certain days and times for item drop offs. 
  • Almost everything is discounted to 50% and then 75% the last two days of a sale. If you don’t want your items discounted, make sure to mark them as such.

Kimberly Casey
Hi, my name is Kimberly and I am a new stay at home mom. I am a nomad of sorts. Born in Arkansas to a military family of five children, I was speaking German by the age of 4. I have lived in Germany, England, and the United States and have traveled to countless other countries. In 2006 I moved to Providence, Rhode Island in order to attend Johnson & Wales University where I received a Bachelor's degree in Food Service Management, an Associate's in Culinary Arts, and an Associate's in Baking and Pastry Arts. So you could say that I'm a foodie.  After college I worked in Collegiate Ministry for many years and loved every second of it. I would do it again in a heartbeat if given the chance today. I met my husband, Wade, in 2011 through Collegiate Ministry but we didn't start dating until 2015. Our entire relationship was long distance and we saw each other a total of 10 times before our wedding. After our wedding in 2016, I moved to Chattanooga where my husband is an associate pastor and I can say that this move was one of the hardest things I had ever done. After two years of marriage we welcomed our daughter into the world this past October. She is a joy, loves to smile, and has turned our world upside down. If I'm not in the kitchen baking or cooking, you can find me outside enjoying nature.
