About Us I was introduced to consignment sales by one of my husband’s co-workers when I was pregnant with our first child. I attended the sale she recommended and instantly fell in LOVE. I love that I saved money. I loved that I could get great items that were nearly new. I loved finding all the brand name clothes at prices I could afford.
I knew I was in trouble after I shopped a sale with my newborn daughter. I bought the place out or at least it seemed that way. I was so excited that I stayed up late, waiting for my husband to come home from work. Our daughter was sitting in her bouncer playing with her toys. I began to show my husband all of the great finds. We noticed that our daughter had stopped playing with her toys and was interested in what we were doing. I began to show the items to both my husband and my daughter. She stayed interested in seeing everything I bought (which was mostly clothes). At that moment, I knew we were in trouble and that our daughter was a clothes princess.
I really enjoyed shopping consignment sales and I knew this was something I wanted to share with others. After all, who doesn’t love saving money?
Next, I decided to consign at a sale. Who would have thought that it could get better, but it was… As a consignor, not only was I able to buy great items at pre-sales where the selection was at it best, but I was earning money. In fact, I would try to make more money (or break even) between what I bought and what I sold. It was like shopping for FREE!!!! How can you beat that?
After much thought and research, I decided to take the plunge and created ThriftMouse. I am so excited to help families in our community and I look forward to seeing you at our events!
