When we see or hear of a consignment shop some words that come to mind may include cheap, bargain, deal, unique; the list goes on and on. Owners of consignment shops are not only in it for the profit they make off of their store, but to recycle items and products that hold a sentimental and historical value to the community, rather than to have it misused or thrown out. Customers visit these shops in hope to find a deal on a product that still has value or to bring in a piece that they believe still has value in hope of making some sort of profit off of it sometime down the road. Whatever the reason may be, owners and customers cherish the products a consignment store has to offer just as much as the profit they make off of those same exact products.
