STORE 5a's GUIDE TO BUYING AND SELLING: Part 1

Posted on 19 January 2017

 

There are many deciding factors when looking through closets, jewelry boxes, etc., and determining what you no longer need can be a chore in itself. There are sentimental pieces that maybe it is time to just get rid of, then there are those pieces that are taking up space that we know we will never wear again, but for some reason we are still hanging onto. Whatever the reason behind your attachment, STORE 5a is here to help ease you into the process of perfecting the 'New Year, New You' mindset. We are experts at cleaning out our closets and soon you will be too!   
 
 
Part 1:
 
So, on to the big question, “How do I determine what to keep or sell?” We’ve put together a list of questions to help you learn to let go.

Questions to ask yourself:
- Does this piece fit into my current style or is it in current style?
- Have I worn this within the last 12 months?
- Is it likely I will wear this piece in the future?
- Is this a piece I would hand down to family/friends in years to come?
- If the piece is damaged, will I make an effort to get it repaired?
- Does the piece have sentimental meaning?
 
If you are looking at a piece and have said “No” to more than one of these questions, it may be time to look into other options.
 
Yes! YOU have OPTIONS and we are here to help!
 
So, what do you do next?
 
If the only reason a piece has not been worn in a while is that is needs a repair, we’ve got you covered!
