transport, safety, childhood road trip and people concept - happy little girl sitting in baby car seat

Selling a car seat

Car seats have always been a sought after commodity at Divine Consign.  Everyone needs one. You aren’t going to get your baby home from the hospital without it.  And, buying multiple seats for the multiple cars that carry your kids on a regular basis is a lifesaver.  So, finding a good seat, at a great…

Consigning 101

If it were possible to have negative artistic ability, that’s how you would have to describe me. My stick figures don’t look like people. Seriously. So when I was a kid my only “artistic” ability occurred when I did a Paint By Numbers project. Is that even a thing anymore? The directions were very clear…color…

Where Have All of the Cribs Gone?

Have you ever noticed how the rules for things babies use change all of the time? No? Then have another baby! In the 22 months between my first and second baby, the recommendation changed from letting babies sleep on their tummies to sleeping on their backs. Since then many other changes have been implemented: Which…

In another recent post, we addressed whether or not consigning is worth your time…of course it is! But the time you put into it makes a big difference in what you get out of it. Washing, buttoning, zippering, ironing, hanging…all the “ings”. One of the things we see the most often is pants that look…

Q&A: Is consigning worth my time?

I don’t know about your kids but mine go through clothes faster than Kleenex!  We outgrow them long before we could ever wear them out.  So at the end of each season we deal with a decision – what to do with all this stuff we no longer need?  To say I’m sentimental is an…

Q&A: Anyone have an extra Presale wristband?

A very wise woman at our church was once asked what her secret to parenting was.  “Say yes as often as you can.”  We’ve all been there.  Feeling like you say no a thousand times a day.  It feels good to say yes and be the hero for a change.  Writing this blog post feels…

Q&A: Where do I get hangers?

Clothing is very important to this consigning business.  Over 65% of everthing dropped off is clothing.  Last Fall, at our Plano sale, we received almost 60,000 clothing items!  Clothes that fit babies and clothes that fit teenagers.  And those almost 60,000 items came in the door hanging on almost 60,000 hangers. And that’s the subject…

Q&A: Secrets of Successful Consignors

You’re all too young to remember but when I was a kid there was a game show called I’ve Got a Secret…it was in black and white, on channel 3, one of our FOUR channels. Just include that concept in the ones my kids will never be able to comprehend. On the show, the “panel”,…
