You can earn money selling clothing from your apartment, home and online.
Specialize in ladies’ or children’s apparel and accessories.
Men are too traditional to buy much from you.
How To Start A Fast Money Plan For Your Unique Thrift Store?
Purchase your merchandise at end-of-season department store sales, from wholesalers, and from discount stores.
Or purchase used clothing at other unique thrift stores, yard sales, estate sales, flea markets, etc..
Mark up the price you pay by about 35 percent.
Your price will then be about one-third off the regular price.
For example, for a silk scarf that normally retails for $20, and that you buy at discount for $10, resell it for $10 plus 35 percent, or $13.50.
However, try to set your prices so they end with $.97 or $.98.
So sell the scarf for $13.97.
To attract customers, place notices on bulletin boards, put fliers under doors, and of course social media!
You can even go door-to-door to market your unique thrift store items.
After a while, you will have a steady clientele, especially of working women who don’t have time to shop.
