Resaling.com is dedicated to raising the awareness and perception of resale shops of all kinds. Resale encompasses a broad range of shops but ultimately they are all tied together by a single thread. They all deal in the secondary market or used goods.
Most often, when someone thinks of a resale shop they think of thrift or consignment and even then the first shops that come to mind for many shoppers are the “big box” shops. Big box shops are the ones that typically take donations and may be nationally recognized brands. They often offer opportunities or charity activities and are typically run like department stores.
Personal and Home Goods Shops
Beyond that are the smaller, lesser known shops. Some are thrift shops who’s primary mission is to offer the best possible price on commonly used goods like furniture, decor and clothing. Consignment shops specialize in providing a place for individuals to sell their items in a store setting. The individual typically sets the price and the shop takes a consignment fee. Vintage and Collectible shops focus on items that are older, possibly rare or are known for their collectibility. Antique shops deal in items that are significantly older, typically over 100 years.
The shops we have discussed so far typically focus on the personal or home goods market. but, those same categories can apply to various other markets like cars, and industrial. The used car market is very large and well-known but finding dealers can, at times be a challenge. Industrial and farm goods are also available on the used market and these goods can be the foundation for starting a profitable restaurant, farm or industrial business.
