What the Girls Can Learn
- Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
Learn how consignment shops help the environment: 2 million tons of fabric is kept out of landfills; less clothing needs to be manufactured, saving water and fewer pesticides on the earth; transportation to deliver clothing is less, saving both cost and reducing pollution.
- Community Benefits
People can buy items at a lower cost, things they might otherwise not be able to afford; people can make money by consigning their items; volunteers in the community have a way to be involved and make a difference
What the Visit Can Include
- Community Service. Help put items on display
- Shopping. Girls will find a section for children and young adult, or perhaps find gifts for family members. They will become familiar with the types of items consignment shops carry.
- Retail Display. Learn from shop volunteers techniques to display items that will attract attention and increase sales.
- Financial Decisions. Learn how prices are set for each item, when prices are changed, and how the Guild makes decisions on spending the money.
- Consignment. Girls are invited to bring an item to consign. Working together, a price will be set and the girls can complete a consignment form. They will be notified when their item sells.
