Pre-Loved Consignment.... "What does that mean?" You ask. It is a nicer phrase to use than the dreaded "Used Clothing" or "2nd Hand Clothing.," for sure.
Not everyone is fond of "used clothing" I mean "Pre-Loved Clothing".... see? doesn't that sound much better? Because in actuality, they have been pre-loved. They have been a part of someone's closet that was either a gift given that was never worn or worn but outgrew. Either way, the items were pre-loved in their own special way.
What is the benefit of purchasing "Pre-Loved Clothing?" You ask. In my opinion, I actually enjoy an article of clothing that has been broken into. Something that can fit right away without worrying that you may get a rip in it, that you may accidentally spill grape juice on it or wine, even. At times buying brand new for that special occasion or just because it was a "hot item" at the time, you may come to find, that it just doesn't fit as well as you thought it would have right away and end up wearing it a thousand times the following year. At least that's what I have experienced when buying new (don't get me wrong, I still love new any day of the week).
The other benefit to Pre-loved clothing is that the items are normally well-known brand names vs. indie boutique names that are usually found in most boutiques and they are normally at a great price!!
Lastly, you are doing the earth some good. Going green is helping the earth's ozone everyday. Recycling is here to stay. You can re-cycle, you can up-cycle (which means re-designing "pre-loved clothing") or you can simply consign or donate your well maintained "duds" to your local consignment store (like U.BE.U. FASHION :) or one nearest your home or even donate to a local charity boutique.
I hope that helps for anyone that has had questions on "Pre-Loved Consignment." Pre-Loved means (gently used) and Consignment means (a private seller that has decided to go green and sell their well maintained items of clothing).
