Default you walk in to a high end consignment shop and.....

What would you like to see? I am hoping you ladies can give me some unique ideas, on inventory.
My friend is taking over a local consignment shop and we need some stuff. She has the basic tutus, bows, and flops. She's looking into baby shoes.

We really want it to be unique and different. So what ya think??

I would just like to be able to see everything honestly. That's the biggest problem with shops that are around where I live. They have so much stuff crammed in the racks you can hardly tell what's there. I don't care if it is high dollar brands, if I can't see it, it serves me no purpose.

Also, if you have any schools around there that require uniforms from specific places. It's wonderful to find those for resale. I don't mean schools that say any old khaki and polo in certain colors. I mean schools that require very specific logo'd and monogrammed uniforms. My 2 oldest daughters both have to have specific plaids and uniforms from only 2 places. It gets crazy expensive. Since I've found a couple pieces in one consignment shop, I've gone back there many many times just to see if there are more. I usually walk out with more than a uniform.

The first thing I look for when I walk into a high end consignment shop is pageant dresses. I have found some great dresses at great prices. The uniforms is a great idea. My son grows into a new size about halfway through the year.I hate having to basically buy his school wardrobe twice.

There was a wonderful consignment store close to me that recently closed it's doors, not for the lack of sales and money, but for retirement. I loved that store. The one thing I loved too was that she had all the high end, name brand clothing out on display and away from all typical department store brands. It was so easy to go in and go directly to that section. She was very organized, and that is what I find very important.

I like an organized layout...accessories in one area, furniture in another, clothing separated by sizes and by name brand. I have tried selling my bows in a local consignment store only to pull them since the accessories area was junked up and seemed like an after thought. Accessories should be near the cash register, not piled up in a far corner. So for me personally, I am always looking to put my bows in an store,but I am now wiser to the set up. Plus the consignment percent...had one store who wanted 50% for each bow. I don't go over 30% since in these economic times it is harder to raise prices. You guys have alot to contend with. Best of luck, pm me if you would like.

Exciting!! Organised is up there on my list... as for products.
Unique things! Love the idea of the area for the designer label stuff.

If you need anything else wholesale please pm me for my list (tutus, tutu-dresses, unique hair flowers...).
Good luck with your new venture~!

I walked in to one the other day that had new and consignment, prices were CRAZY high on the used stuff, like maybe 20% off retail (on the gymboree stuff I looked at)

I know I was totally unempressed with a $15 pricetag for an unembellished HH tutu and $7 Each of HH hair bows

Glass tile and such necklaces and other jewelry would be nice. I make cute jewelry for little girls earrings with sterling studs etc and ppl LOVE them b.c they are so hard to find

Mommy bracelets and baby bracelets (those would be special order so the maker could get the name beads right)

HEre are a couple cute Ready Made items
