Consingment Sales continued
Consignment Stores continued
Last week we discussed the benefits and drawbacks to shopping at consignment stores. This week we’ll dive into the different consignment stores that Athens has to offer. For starters, we’ll discuss clothing consignment stores because that’s what most of us are most familiar with. Luckily, our town gives us a few to choose from.
Cillie’s- is located downtown. Expect to find college trends, game day ensembles, and some new retail items too. Cillie’s is no longer associated with the Cillie’s Closet in Atlanta but continues to feature many cute new and used clothes at discount prices.
Plato’s Closet- is probably the most well known consignment store. Clothes are organized by color, which is helpful if you are looking for a certain color scheme or a specific shirt. Plato’s is located on Alps Road between CVS and the movie theatre, and Plato’s is one of the stores that will pay you outright for your clothes whether they sell or not.
Suska-is located in Five Points. It’s an upscale consignment store that sells top brand-name clothing. Expect to pay a little more than you would at Plato’s or Cillie’s, but expect the merchandise to be higher quality and value too.
P.S. Too-is not actually a consignment store. This is the upscale version of Project Safe Thrift Store located on Gaines School Road. The Thrift Store weeds out their nicest donated items and sells them at P.S. Too. All proceeds still benefit Project Safe but they’ve already done the digging. It’s hit and miss but you may find a gem.
A Child’s Closet- is in Watkinsville. It’s an upscale consignment store for kids’ clothes, and I have to say that I love it. I buy and sell a lot of my kid’s clothes there. It’s clean, well-lit, well-organized, and feels more like a specialty shop than a consignment store. In addition to clothes they carry some baby items, lots of books, and cute handmade hair bows that make me wish I had a girl. Happy savings!
