Let’s Shop! Tips for Shopping at Consignment Sales

Sunday, August 16th, 2009

Well, we have discussed the details of selling your children’s outgrown clothing, but now we need to get to the important stuff!  SHOPPING!  There are several things that you can do that will make your shopping experience super efficient.

Know your kid’s sizes

Spend some time before the sale trying last falls clothes on your children.  Have they really gone up a size, or are they still about the same?  What size do you think they will be wearing next February/March at the end of the winter season?    It is much easier to shop if you do not have your kids with you.  However, this can make the “size” question tough.  But we have seen several people come up with some clever ideas. 

Some shoppers bring a cheat sheet with their kid’s sizes listed on it.  Not only that, many folks bring the measurements instead of sizes.  This can give you  more accurate information since companies all size so differently.  Handy measurements include:  length from back of neck to hem (dresses), length of stride, pants length, waist, and chest.   And bring a tape measure!  These measurements will not help you without being able to measure the new clothes.

We have another mom that traces her little girl on the floor and shops with her “flat daughter.”  This way she can make sure the lengths of things will work.  This also works well with shoes.

Some people have brought clothes from home to hold up next to the ones we sell.  We DO NOT ALLOW this.  We have way too many shoppers to remember who brought what, so we will not be able to allow this.

Take inventory

Hopefully, when you were getting your things ready to sell, you had a chance to see what your children already have in their closets.  Decide what you need.  Do you need school clothes?  Church clothes?  Holiday clothes? Play clothes?  Do you need more dresses, pants sets, sweaters, coats, or separates?  Are you looking for matching outfits?  Is your little one going to be potty training over the next 6 months?  Sometimes it can be overwhelming, so go with a plan.

Plan your shopping

Decide where to start your shopping.   Remember, our 2-4 sections are always our most popular.   Also, the baby sections (0-12 months) always have tons and tons of clothes.  The boys sections are usually a little less crowded than the girls.  Figure out the best plan of attack for you!

Laundry baskets

Bring a laundry basket for your selections.  It will save your back from carrying everything the entire time!

No hoarding

We know that we all want the best for our children, but hoarding is not the way to do it.  Please do not carry things around with you all night long.  Others may be interested in buying what you decide you do not want.  Also, other shoppers are watching you snag entire sections.  You do not want the reputation as “that shopper.”

Use our OOPS Rack

We totally understand that you may change your mind on some items.  We ask that you either put these items back where they belong or put them on our “Oops Rack.”  This rack is for this very purpose.  Please do not put your rejects on tables, odd racks, chairs, or the floor.   Think about the clothes you are consigning….would you want them piled on a table in the back corner instead of the rack where shoppers can see them?

Do you need hairbows?

We have wonderful hairbow and headband vendors, so don’t miss this opportunity to stock-up.   Before you leave home, go through your closets and see which outfits need matching bows.  Perfect opportunity to accessorize!

Study your calendar

Do you have any birthday, baby shower or holiday presents you need to buy?  Remember, that we have thousands of amazing brand new overstocks that would be lovely gifts for your little friends and family.  Do your holiday shopping here!

Bring your money!

We are excited to announce that we are now taking Visa and Mastercard in addition to cash and checks!  So now shopping is easier.

Shopping at consignment sales is a great way to save money and get an incredible wardrobe from your little ones.  You just need to remember to be prepared, be patient, be considerate, and have fun!

Tagging your clothes for DCS sales

Monday, August 10th, 2009

Well, as the dates for our huge consignment/overstock shows are quickly approaching, we have been receiving a ton of questions about how to get your clothes ready to sell.   So here are the basics to help you get more for your clothes!

     *  Make sure that your items are clean.  They should not have stains, spots, fuzz balls, pulls, missing buttons, broken zippers, or  odors.  Would you buy something in ratty condition?

     *  Presentation makes a huge difference!  Be sure to iron your items.  Shoppers do not want to have to have  “vision” about what the dress would look like if it wasn’t a wrinkled mess. 

     *  Zip all zippers.  Button all buttons.  Tie all bows.  Show them how cute it is.

     *  Hang the garment on the hanger so that the mouth of the hook is opened to the left.  

     *  When attaching skirts or pants be sure to use safety pins so that they do not bunch up or fall off.  It is very difficult for us to return missing items to their sets if they fall to the floor.  If that happens they will not sell at all.

     *  Attach your tag with a safety pin, tagger, or zip tie.  If you are looking at the garment the tag needs to be on the left-hand shoulder.  This makes is super easy for the shoppers to find.

     *  Price your item to sell!  Most items that are in great condition will sell for approximately 1/3 to 1/2 of the retail price.  Be sure to take into consideration the condition of the clothing.   What would YOU  pay for the item as it is now?

     *  If you mark an item or items to be reduced to 1/2 price on the last day, highlight DISCOUNT on the tag.  This makes it easier for the shoppers to spot your super deal.

     *  Be sure to list the brand name on the description line.  Many people are looking specifically for brands like Beaux et Belles, Lilly, Three Mommas, Bailey Boys, Anavini, and many others!

     *  If you have matching tights, hairbows, leggings, or socks feel free to attach them securely and sell as a set.  People love to get an entire outfit.

     *  If you feel that the sizing is really off on an item (a size 2 that fits like a 4), put that on the tag and put it where you think it belongs.

     *  You know when things look good and are priced right.  Trust yourself!

Bottom line…..we all want your clothes to sell!  We do not want to have to sort them at the end of the sale, and you don’t want to have to pick them up.  So really take the time to make them amazing!  You bought them because you loved them, and someone else will do the same.

Trunk Show & Boutique Overstocks

Friday, July 17th, 2009

I am so excited about all of the amazing lines that we have coming to our Fall Shows.  We have been so fortunate to have so many companies interested in us bringing their clothes to you!  There are so many really cute things out there, and I don’t know how I am going to pick things for my girls.  One of each please!  We have a wonderful selection of smocked, appliqued, traditional, and a little funky clothes.  Oh, what a fun season this will be.

Most of our overstocks are $35 and under.  Can you believe that?  These clothes usually sell for at least double that.  In this economy we all need a little help, and DCS is here to help!

We have several of our long time favorites coming back: Three Mommas, Kate and Libby, Wish Upon a Star, and Brinkley’s Berries.  But that is not all!  We have several new lines that wish to remain a secret…..  You will just have to come and check it out!
