Consigning is a quick and easy way to get a little money for items you no longer need or want. The Nearly New Shop accepts “gift quality” items for consignment. Clothing should be in excellent condition, current style, clean, pressed, and in season. Non-clothing items should be in good repair, clean, and free of dust and dirt.
The Nearly New Shop is a large consignment store in which all profits go toward funding the outreach programs of Saint Ann’s Episcopal Church. It has a color coded pricing system. At the end of the initial color period (about two weeks), a 25% markdown is taken. After the next two weeks, 50%; after the following two weeks, 75%. After the final two weeks, the item is considered a donation.
Be on the lookout for these color coded tags FOR MAXIMUM SAVINGS!!
