When you were a child in school, you learned the three Rs: Reading, ‘Riting and ‘Rithmatic. When you were a teenager who wanted to save Mother Earth, you learned another three Rs: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. And now that you’re an adult with an education and a style all your own it’s time to add three more Rs to your mindset: Round-up, Resale and Refresh.

For over six years, Catherine Parker, the owner of Consigning Women in Sun City has been doing a lot of buying and selling. Re-selling that is…and enjoying it down to every last boot, brooch and button. “I have always loved consignment shopping,” she says, “and buying quality items for a wonderful price!”

Consigning Women ArizonaA specialist in women’s upscale consignment and resale clothing and accessories, Parker likes to see women outfitted for the golf course, the dance floor, the rodeo and everything in between. Her store offers an adventure in outfitting with a wide and ever-changing selection of merchandise: clothing, shoes, jewelry, purses and accessories. Customers know to watch for sales and special events—such as First Friday Fifty Percent Off, Internet-only coupons and private shopping hours for field trips women’s groups or parties.

Consignment is all about rounding up gently used, clean items from your wardrobe, bringing them into Consigning Women for a resale evaluation and then refreshing your closet with new-to-you pieces to wear and enjoy. After your ‘round-up’ call and make an appointment to bring in the items you own. If chosen, they’ll be purchased from you and displayed in the store for three months.

Parker says that an important part of consigning is keeping the merchandise moving. If an item has not sold in the time we have it out, “we donate it to Sun Heath Thrift Shop and 4-Paws Thrift Shop,” she says. The customer then gets a donation receipt (if they want one) for itemizing deductions when filing taxes.

If you are new to consignment selling or shopping, Consigning Women is a great place to start. Prepare to be welcomed by the sales staff and even Parker herself who claims to have “so many loyal and wonderful customers.”
