Consignment Shops Around Naples, FL Help You Save Cash on Furniture

Consignment shops and thrift stores present a good option for shoppers. In Florida Today, “Retail Commando” Doris Golindano, tells of her story on how she first discovered the practicality of consignment shops and thrift stores. It was during a business trip when her boss introduced her to shopping in a thrift shop over 15 years ago. Doris was amazed that her boss, being a woman of good financial status, would shop in such places. Her boss told her that children grew fast so it was not very practical to spend much on clothes that they outgrow within a few weeks. From then on, Doris has been shopping in yard sales, thrift stores, and consignment shops, becoming one of the many shopping converts out there. In these alternative shops, she is able to get items for lower prices, thereby saving money.
