#SpringFashion #SpringCleaning and #Cosigning my Clothes!


(Source: Blueridge Beauty Blogger)
I am so ready for SPRING after receiving several snowfalls here in Central Virginia! I have checked out several clothing items that I am no longer wearing, accessories that I have rarely used in the last year, purses that I no longer use because they are just too small or not the right fit for my fashion assemble! Plus, I had a few DVDs that I no longer watch and want to make the techie trend of download videos on a future laptop/tablet instead keeping "bulky" DVDs on the shelf! I also had several beauty and healthcare items that was not the right fit for me as gifts ( I will not specify in detail cause I don't want to be mean nor picky in this post)! So I packed everything that I thought would be good enough for consignment and went to several places in Lynchburg to sell my gentle used clothes and accessories!

First stop, Plato's Closet which has returned to Lynchburg, VA after many years is back heading towards Forest, VA! This store mostly caters to young women and men's clothes but I have a few brands and accessories that crossover age wise! The ladies were very friendly as they took my bag and information and told me after 15 mins they would put my name on the board after they selected what is in demand from their customers!! I noticed the had a lot of new items for Spring and Summer so I decided to check out their selection! Soon the moment of truth came when I saw my name on their board which means I can pick up whatever they can't use or can use plus give me cash for it!! I only earned a few dollars for a few of my items but most of my items were too "older woman" for their clientele! No worries and at least I got a couple of dollars for the items that did sell!

I figured to take my "older women" clothes and accessories to Ashley who owns New To You Consignment in Forest Kroger Plaza, Forest, VA! She is always a ray of sunshine when I need to buy or sell at her consignment! She took several of my items that would sell and I would wait to my items "sold" for me to come back and get my money for it, which I don't mind at all! I did buy a Laura Gellar Lipstick for a $1 which is a steal for me in a Pink/Nude color that is will be perfect for Spring Makeup!

I did pretty good making sure that did my Spring Cleaning of my Spring Wardrobe and being able to sell my items at two consignment shops in the neighborhood plus getting extra cash and pretty lipstick shade!

What are your favorite consignment shops for your Spring Cleaning of your Wardrobe and getting extra cash or new items?

Until next time...
