TOP: New-2-U owner Jo Crawford sorts through items at her store. Consignment shops such as New-2-U, 2506 E. Ash St., can help make shopping less challenging and stressful as you look for that perfect gift while maintaining a budget. TOP RIGHT: Melissa Eason shows off a display at the jewelry counter at the Second Fling Consignment Store. RIGHT: From clothes, to furnishings to dishes, to jewelry and decorations, shoppers can pretty much find what they could in a department store, but at lower costs at Second Fling Consignment Store. "Everything we have goes on sale. We always have something at 25, 50 and 75 percent off at all times. We do ours by color code so when they come in they will just look at our wall. We have the different colors up on the wall that tell you the ticket on the item. So there is always a sale going on." Clothing, housewares, jewelry and pocketbooks are among the most pop- ular items at both stores. For clothing, prices range from $4 to $30 except for formal or wedding dresses that go from $80 to $200 at New-2-U. Dishes start anywhere from a dollar to maybe $15 or $20 depending on what it is. A set of dishes is rarely more than $30 or $40 depending on the name brand, Crawford said. "We have a lot of jewelry, and occasionally, we will have real silver or gold, but costume jewelry sells really well," she said. "We get a lot of name brand pocketbooks like Coach, Liz Claiborne, Prada, Vera Bradley. "We have good prices to start with and then we are always marking it down to move it faster." The company has been in business for more than 25 years. It is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday in the fall and until 7 in the summer. It is open from 1 to 5 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. For more information call New-2-U at 919-778-2588. Second Fling opened in 1980. "I think most people who come in for the first time are blown away," Wall said. "I had a lady this week, her friend brought her in. Her friend was telling her about it. When she came in she said, 'Wow this is unbelievable. You have more clothes than Macy's.' We do have a lot of stuff. "We have lots and lots of things. We have any type clothing. We have men's, women's, children's. We have lingerie. We have a wedding room, a formal room. We have clothing, shoes. We have lots of jewelry, which is a good (gift) idea." The store has any kind of accessories and handbags. "We sell nice handbags," Wall said. "Shoes, we have the housewares area. If people come in and look they will find a lot of things with new tags on them. They will find stuff still in their new boxes." Not everything in the store is used. "It is things brought to us by vendors who don't want it for whatever reason," she said. "But we get a lot of new items in that are still new. Quite often we have stores that close out, and the stuff that they don't sell, they just bring here. And we only accepted gently used items and clothes. It is not worn-out stuff. "We also have furniture items. We have small electronic items. We have dishes, lamps, cosmetic items. There is just so much (you) just have to see it. One thing we have that most stores don't have now — we have layaways. We have gift cards." Two of more popular items are handbags and jewelry. "They (handbags) can be super expensive new, we sell them a lot cheaper," Wall said. Costume jewelry costs anywhere from $2 to $8 or $10. The store also has a lot of sterling that can cost $15 up, she said. "Handbags and wallets, we have Coach, starting at $60; Kate Speight, for $80 to $150; Michael Kors, Vera Bradley, Brightons for $80," Wall said. "Prices depend on the particular piece. It also depends on the condition. If it is in poor condition, we don't take it to start with. "In stores some of the bags could cost $300 to $400." Shoppers can pretty much find what they could in a department store, but at lower costs, she said. The store is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 1 to 4:30 p.m. on Sun- day.
