Q&A: What’s the best way to pin pants on the hanger?

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.

Q&A: How do I know which items go under what categories?

I’m a rule follower, probably to an extreme. Anyone who knows me can testify that I like to color inside the lines…I don’t do well without specific parameters in which to operate. Apparently many of our consignors are that way to. When we streamlined our categories last season to make item entering easier, it stressed…
