Have you ever heard of the 80/20 theory when it comes to a woman’s wardrobe? It’s a much-researched philosophy hypothesizing we wear 20% of our clothing 80% of the time. Think about it! How many pieces do you continually skip over in your daily wardrobe considerations because it’s no longer the right size, shape, style, etc.? I know I’m guilty of recycling the same outfits over and over again, promising myself I will some day brave those Michael Kors sky-high stiletto heels I scored two summers ago on mega sale or will lose those 10 lbs. to fit back into that darling Marc Jacobs sweater I once loved.
Well, for that 80%, Nashville Fashion Blog has you covered. As the warm weather approaches (or I should say as 80 degree weather is now upon us), it’s time for a bit of spring wardrobe cleaning. And instead of getting rid of all your unwanted items, why not sell them? I was recently turned on to Claire’s Closet, a 3 day upscale consignment resale in Franklin, TN from April 13-15, 2012 (drop off day for clothing is April 12th). Here are the details posted on Claire’s Closet’s website:
Claire's Closet is a semi annual women's consignment sale specializing in upscale and name brand clothing and accessories. This season's sale will be held in the Clubhouse located in the Westhaven community in Franklin. We accept new and gently used women's clothing (size 0-14) shoes, bags, belts, scarves, and jewelry.
Claire's Closet is a 3 day event. That means you no longer have to wait months for your clothes to sell at a consignment store or deal with the frustration of organizing a garage sale. All you have to do it tag your items and bring them to the sale. We will do the rest! You set the price and we sell it for you! You receive a check for your sold items within 2 weeks.
Consignors receive 70% of the sale proceeds. A $15 registration fee is required to participate in the sale and must be paid at the time of registration. This fee covers the cost of rental space, advertising and associated costs.
Volunteer to work a shift during the sale and you can shop before the sale opens to the public. 1 shift volunteers shop early and 2 shift volunteers shop even earlier! This means you get first choice of all the fabulous items for sale.
Claire's Closet was started by Paige Cleveland and Ashley Renner. As participants in countless children's consignment sales, they began to wonder why kids get to have all the fun. They saw the need for an upscale women's sale and decided that they were the people to fill it.
