Act 157

Consign

Consignment is an interesting business proposition. You transfer the goods but retain the ownership until such time as the goods are sold or delivered. Like barter, it’s an ancient practice and still a popular one.

I tried my local consignment shop today. It’s very humbling to deliver your wares and hope they will be accepted for “transfer”. All the same, a couple of items (mostly shoes that were adored but never worn), were accepted and now we’ll wait and see what sells.

It’s an experiment for me. I certainly don’t know what or when or how much to expect. But I certainly didn’t have very high expectations of those items while they sat in my closet. So it was worth a try.

Do you consign? Has it been worth your while? I’d love to know more.
