As you guys may (or may not) know, I'm a huge fan of consignment (or second-hand) stores - Buffalo Exchange, Crossroads Trading, etc. Like any thrift / vintage stores, it's hit or miss, but I've been able to find a few gems; especially when it comes to jeans. 7 for All Mankind for $25? Not bad! Citizens of Humanity for $17? Can't beat that! When you sell your clothes there, you end up getting more bang for your buck if you exchange it for store credit (versus for cash), but the only catch is, when you are trying to sell your clothes, don't you feel SLIGHTLY OFFENDED when they DON'T want your items? I understand that usually it has to do with seasonality (e.g. they don't want me winter coats when it's June), but when they pass on things like blouses, shoes, or even Rye Bread's suits...we were both like o.O! "What do you mean you'll pass on this? Do you know how MUCH THIS COST ME?" Rye Bread experienced that for the first time when he was trying to sell his designer suits & shoes - they were like, "hmm...we'll just take your shoes." I saw the look on Rye's face when they DENIED the rest of his clothes (and even some of my shoes!). Oh well, out of his one pair of shoes that they did want - I ended up exchanging it for this Tulle skirt that I wore on Easter. And $4 cash, lol.
