Saving: Shop for Winter, sell for Spring

February 6, 2009 9:44:32 AM PST
It's still winter, but in the world of consignment shops, it's time to start thinking about Spring.

Julie Segal and Jill Segal Baim own the Twice as Nice Children's Consignment Boutique in Narberth, Montgomery County.

To make room for Spring merchandise, they've cut the prices in half on almost all their gently used Winter clothes.

Considering those clothes were selling for about half-off retail to start with, the savings are hard-to-beat.

That makes this a good time to guess what size the kids will be wearing next year and to start stocking up.

Sweaters that retailed for around $30 can now be bought for about $7.50. A red Janie and Jack sweater is just $6.50 and a snowflake sweater from The Children's Place is just $4.50.

The prices on Winter coats are equally good.

A flowered Corky and Company coat originally sold for about $150. Now, Twice as Nice has it priced at just $18.

Some of the winter items still have their original tags.

A pair of Hartstrings pajamas are tagged at $32, but are on sale for just $8.

Twice as Nice also has games, shoes, gifts, and baby gear.

And if you're looking to make money, they're accepting Spring merchandise. The store splits sales: 60% for them, 40% for consigners.

Twice as Nice is located at 237 Haverford Avenue in Narberth, Pa. The phone number is 610-667-3005. You can email them at
