My First Re-Selling Experience

I toted two tubs of kid's clothes, toys, and shoes to a children's resale shop in another town this morning. While they were sorted at the store I picked out two summer outfits for my daughter.

In the end, they only bought about $12.50 worth of clothes. I ended up owing them $2.50 for the clothes I picked out. I'm not sure if it was worth my time or not. I'm going through the tubs I brought home and am finding only pajamas, jeans, puzzles, and one pair of new sandals missing.

At least I got my kid's closets cleaned out. ; ) That's a big plus.

Our consignment store is extremely picky. They take only the very best stuff, but I've gotten to the point where I know what they'll accept and what they won't, so I usually don't come home with many rejects anymore.

What's funny to me is when they reject something I originally BOUGHT there. I don't get that.

I've had the same experience with a children's consignment shop and consignment sales. I love to shop them and I get good deals on my daughters clothes. But, I've decided that what few dollars I get from selling to those places is not worth my time. I can give them to goodwill or another organization and get the tax deduction that will be worth more.

I was thinking doing the same thing soon but first need to sort out clothes. and as my eldest needs summer stuff, I guess, I will end up spending more than having profit.

I end up getting rid of so much when I clean out my closet.
