Consignment Stores are great places to shop! Many gradually drop their prices the longer an item sits unsold. Also, when the length of the time gets to a point where they really want it gone for new merchandise, they may even drop the price to $1.99 or lower. You many even want to ask if they donate items. If they do donate the items at some point, ask where. Another thing, consignment stores are MUCH CLEANER than thrift stores.
