The art of buying and selling at consignment shops

It's hard to beat the deals you find at a consignment sale, but the shoppers are also pretty particular about what they buy.

It's a money saving circle - sell your old clothes and buy new clothes with the money you make.  

There is an art to choosing which clothes, toys, furniture and other things to put on the block, so you can get the most money for your time and effort.

Consignment sale coordinator Julie Mitchell says, "You're going to get more for your items than you would at a yard sale so you want to make sure you're bringing better quality."

Nothing will sell if it isn't in good shape and you'll get more money for nicer items. Mitchell suggest you price your items competitively.

Also, look at your items critically - would you buy them? Because the more you sell, the more you make and the more you can spend on someone else's things.
