Hi Everyone:

I have a lot of business clothes which I am looking to sell at a consignment shop but am having difficulty locating one.

I know there are many thrift stores in Bangor, Dexter, Dover, Watervile but have not located a true consignment shop

PLEASE send names and locations if you know of any.

Thanking you in advance for your consideration and assistance.

if you can't find one, maybe it's a good business to start.
there's a salvation army retail place in augusta that sells clothes/shoes, etc
and i do believe you can bring items in to sell, or they buy them

also i do remember a place in winthrop that did this, not sure if they are still open

a "wear it again" store wouldnt be a bad idea, with todays technology of the internet, (website) you may be able to promote with pictures, and do very well.
anyone can sell clothes off the internet, but having a business, lends some credibility and some folks do like to come in and browse, or see the items, before they commit to buy

In Waterville, I always used "Fashions" located at 328 Main St. Tel: 877-9600.

She only accepts very clean, well maintained clothing. Bring it in on hangers and in good condition or she won't accept it.

I always did VERY well there.

I haven't been there in a few years so they could be. Goodwill has put some of the smaller resale stores out of business.
