Prepare your items for consignment or resale to make more money
Freshly-cleaned and groomed items will appeal to the shopkeeper, which means they will be more likely to be accepted for sale in the shop. Remember, the shopkeeper will not accept items that she or he doesn’t believe will sell. If it’s not immaculate, that’s a big strike against it, no matter how desirable it might otherwise be.
The shopkeeper knows that things that look good sell for a good price. So the value of a cared-for object will reflect the extra effort you put into it.
When your items look good, they will get prime placement in the shop. It’s only natural: the cleanest, prettiest, most polished merchandise will be placed in displays, be shown more readily to browsers, and be highlighted.
Shoppers gravitate to clean and polished goods and they bypass dust, grime, tarnish and fading. Make sure your items are attractive and worth a second look!
