This was my first time [consigning] and it was awesome!
Loved it! Everything was so well organized. I will be consigning again next sale for sure!
The entire process was explained well and my items nearly all sold. Already setting aside items for the next sale!
This was my second time consigning and I’ve got the system done. See you next sale!
