- Consignment shops usually buy seasonal clothing, so think shorts and tank tops in the spring, and coats and pants in the fall.
- If the clothing is very outdated, it usually won't sell unless you're selling to a vintage store.
- If any clothing has missing buttons or threads sticking out, fix it before you go to the store.
- Wash the clothes and have them smelling and looking their best.
