Chicos is a higher end chain store that sells women's (sizes up to 22) clothing and accessories. I've had some pretty good success selling their items. My tip of the day is to look for Chicos clothing in the plus size clothing section of thrift stores. Even the small sizes of Chicos clothes show up there. Chicos uses a sizing system of sizes 1, 2, 3 etc instead of 8, 10, 12 etc. The people who work at the thrift stores frequently put these items in the plus size section of the store because the size on the tag looks plus size. They assume 1 is a 1X instead of 8/10 that it actually is.
Are there any items you regularly find in the wrong department? Please share!
I love to use good soap without chemicals and artificial fragrance but I can't always afford to pay good soap prices. In the last couple of years I haven't had to pay retail prices for my soap because I often find it in thrift stores brand new! Last week I found four bars of Sunrise Showers Soap for $1.60 total. This would have been over $16 if purchased full retail. I saved $15 on soap.
I haven't tried this yet but it is a future project that I want to try. You can make your own soft soap out of bar soap. All you really need is soap and glycerin. I purchased the glycerin but need to get busy with the grating.
This way you can choose what goes into your soft soap. I'm going to use one of my bars of recently purchased Sunrise Showers Soap. Have you tried making your own soft soap?
In the world of reselling. Today I had a sale on Bonanza. I average about one sale a month there. The buyer sent me a message "I hope this is legit and you aren't going to screw me". Nice, hey. I'd like to just cancel the sale but it's $40. Would you respond to the message or just ignore it?
