Consignment shops take goods they can sell, and pay you a percentage of the selling price when the items sell. Often they will reduce the selling price if the items is unsold for a certain period of time. What one shop will not take, another one will, as they serve different types of customers. Look around the store to see what kind of merchandise they accept and their pricing structure. Consignment prices are considerably less than new merchandise, and are based on market demand.
