One of the great things about consigning your items is that YOU get to set the price! You decide what price to sell your items, and whether or not they will be sold for half price on the final day.
A few tips:
-Price your items as if you were the buyer, not the seller. Think about what you would be willing to pay if you were the buyer.
-The goal is to SELL your items. Be careful not to over price. Pricing competitively helps items sell.
-Consignors who include their items in the half price sale tend to sell more items and make more money!
-Use Consignment Mommies' Price Guide to help you out when pricing clothing.
