Shopping Spree!


Do you have a ton of clothes in your closet that you haven't worn in years or even have the tags still on them? Do you have great shoes and accessories that you would love to sell? Wanting to remodel your house but still need to sell your old furniture first?

I personally have a ton of stuff that is in PERFECT condition. Too nice to give away but I never seem to wear them myself. I wanted to bring them to a consignment store but by the time you take them to the store, wait for them to sell and then the store takes a large percentage... it is not really worth it. I have seen consignment pages on Facebook and thought the idea was brilliant. The only problem I have with the current pages is that they are usually very specific with the brands and items you can sell. I have some awesome shoes/clothes/furniture that aren't necessarily covered in the approved brand list.  I wanted a page with no rules, no regulations, and one that is absolutely free.

I came up with the page, Carolina Consignment.  All you have to do is "like" the page. Then take a photo of the item you want to sell and post it on the wall. Include the price, condition, contact information and size. Then if someone wants to purchase this item from you they can send you a message! It is that easy.

I recommend buying the items though your Paypal account. 

Check out the page HERE! If you have any items you want to get rid of, feel free to post them. And shop away. I have a feeling it will take a few months to get enough followers, shoppers, and sellers before it becomes a booming market place. But, I think it could be a great way to clean out our closets and find awesome bargains. And by viewing it on Facebook it removes the sketchiness of Craigslist.

What do you think!? I just added some adorable shoes in sizes 7.5, 8, and 9. And Marisa put up an awesome pair of Versace sunglasses!

Happy Shopping!

  4. Great idea, Jaime! Have you thought about starting a baby one too or does this include baby stuff? I feel the same way about selling some of my baby items and would rather purchase stuff for Bennett from something like this than on Craigslist! :o) :o) :o) :o)
