They say there’s no bad weather, just bad clothing!
Winter is officially here. That means we're accepting Winter consignment.
Why Shop Consignment?
After many years accepting all sorts of clothing, we’ve noticed a trend in todays retail fashion market.
Clothing is becoming less and less about the quality, and more about producing it cheaply.
With that, brings paper thin material that deteriorates after a few washes.
You see a trendy sweater at the local mall and decide to pick it up. You wear it and it feels amazing but after a few washes, it becomes useless. The threads are unravelling and the logo is flaking off.
This type of fashion isn’t sustainable and something we avoid at Pipsqueaks and Damsels Consignment.
Every item we accept has withstood changing trends and tumbling driers. You can feel great knowing you aren’t producing more garbage for the planet by shopping for fast fashion.
Consignment and Waste Reduction
Many shoppers have a negative stigma around consignment thinking that it’s “thrifty” or “out of style”. But what if we changed the narrative? What if consignment was in fact trendy AND sustainable.
By working together, building a community, and getting the word out about consignment, we can reduce the amount of waste in our landfills.
The average Canadian throws away 37 kg of textiles per year with North American sending over 10 million tons of textiles to the landfill every year. The staggering fact is that 95% of these textiles could be reused or recycled. Crazy!
"What a great store! It’s huge and full of great stuff. They are very picky about what they’ll accept for consignment so you’re bound to find something awesome"
We sort through the clothing and put only the best on the floor. From our hand picked selection, shoppers commonly find rare items at a fraction of the price, we even have a dedicated Lulu rack!
Along with our Lulu rack, we have a section of the highest quality items. You can come in and know exactly where to go without sifting through unwanted items.
With several racks of new items entering our system daily, you can be assured there will be something new every time you shop.
Here is an outfit from our store!
As we strive to be Penticton’s best clothing store and build the consignment community, we are forever grateful for the kind hearted people that walk through our doors. We love to share stories and laughter with you and can't wait to see you again.
