What items sell best?
Divine Consign shoppers LOVE the accessories! Something we can always fit in right ladies! Jewelry,
shoes and scarves are among some of the top sellers. Shoppers also love a great deal on a pair of designer
jeans or distinct pieces among the sale that stand out. Our shoppers are always looking for that unique
treasure they can talk about all year!
How do I make my items stand out?
You can make your items stand out by creating recognizable tags so if a shopper
likes what they see they might seek out more. It is often shoppers find a consignor
they relate to. By making your tags maybe a different color or displayed in a uniform
fashion this may help bring more attention to your items.
Although most of the clothes at our sale are pre-owned, they should not appear
to be used. Bring the life out in your clothes and make them stand out. Give your
garments great hanger appeal. Take the extra effort and the shoppers will notice.
How do I price my items?
You set your own price. Use the original price and brand as your guide. Consider
what you would pay for such an item at our sale. Use $1 increments and price to sell.
Remember the better the price the more likely it will not come back into your closet.
If you are still unsure how to price your items, feel free to contact us
for additional suggestions.
