Consignment Shopping for Beginners

Thursday, May 14th, 2015

A Beginner's Guide to Consignment Shopping

Are you new to the world of consignment shopping? If so, then you may not yet be familiar with the countless benefits that come from buying furniture or jewelry from your local Bay Area consignment store. Here is our helpful guide to consignment shopping for beginners.

Differences from One Consignment Store to Another

An important point to establish early on when it comes to outlining consignment shopping to a beginner is that no two stores are alike, thanks to the process by which they buy furniture or jewelry. In order to make sure that you won’t be wasting your time—or money—when visiting a consignment shop, look for stores that have a solid reputation and many locations around town. Be sure to also inspect the quality of items while you browse, since standards vary from buyer to buyer.

 Economic and Environmental Benefits

Economic and Environmental Benefits

Consignment shopping revolves around the concept of a customer selling furniture or jewelry to the store and eventually receiving a percentage of the profit once that item is purchased by a second customer. This process offers tremendous benefits to the environment, lowering the carbon footprint of both seller and buyer. It also offers fabulous financial savings to those who buy furniture from a consignment shop.

Strategies for Finding Fabulous Items

If you’re on the hunt for something specific, then don’t be shy about calling a store that consigns furniture before visiting them. Be sure to also ask when stores are most likely to put out merchandise so that you can be the first to see new items. If you find something you love, don’t hesitate in buying it since successful consignment stores have a high turnaround rate for furniture and other items.

A Guide to Choosing Jewelry as a Gift

Monday, April 13th, 2015

When done properly, buying jewelry as a gift is a great way to give someone a personal present that they can actually use. If you are looking for the perfect gift for someone special in your life, use this guide to figure out how to choose the right jewelry:

Think About Personality

People use clothing and accessories to represent different aspects of their personality. If you want to give a present that the recipient will really love, you have to think about her personality. If she prefers to get dressed up and wear more formal styles, you want to choose nicer jewelry that has a more fashionable appeal. If she prefers more casual look, though, try to find jewelry that she can wear on a daily basis. Shopping based on her personality helps you ensure that you will give her a gift she will love.

Think About Needs

Choosing a piece of jewelry that someone really needs shows that you really made an effort to give a gift she will love. If she wears a necklace every day but does not seem to have a lot of bracelets, for example, you might want to set your sights on the bracelet selection.

Use Your Best Judgment

If you are close to the recipient of the gift, you probably have a good idea of her personality. While you are shopping, try to let your eyes wander until you find a piece that reminds you of her. If there is something about the jewelry that reminds you of that special someone, there is a good chance that it is a piece of jewelry that she will love.

At Home Consignment Center, we have a great selection of every kind of jewelry that fits a wide range of styles. If you are shopping for a gift or want to enhance your personal jewelry collection, we have something for you. To learn more about our Newport Beach location, visit us online or call (949) 250-0326.

Picking the Perfect Accessories for Every Outfit

Picking the Perfect Accessories for Every Outfit

Accessories can make or break an outfit. If you are looking to enhance your clothing, you have to know how to accessorize it with the right kind of jewelry. Keep reading for some tips on choosing accessories to go with every outfit.

Complementing Your Outfit with Color

Buy a few colorful pieces of jewelry that you can use to complement the hues in your outfit. Colorful jewelry helps you make a statement with a wardrobe and it can take a completely average black, white, grey, or camel outfit to a whole other level of style. Accessorizing with complementary colors helps you get the most out of the items in your closet.

Deciding Between Simple and Statement Pieces

You can play up the features of your outfit with certain pieces of jewelry. You should use your accessories to balance out your outfit.  Choose simple accessories if you are wearing clothing with patterns, ruffles, sequins, or other embellishments. If your clothing is more on the simple side, you can wear statement jewelry that adds some excitement to your look.

Picking the Amount of Jewelry You Wear

The amount of pieces you choose can change the look and feel of your outfit as well. If you are wearing a shirt with a lot of decals near the bust, you probably do not need to wear a necklace, but you can enhance it with earrings or bracelets. If you enhance a simple black dress with a statement necklace, though, you might want to downplay the rest of your jewelry to keep the focus on this larger piece.

Shop for accessories at Home Consignment Center to get an amazing array of jewelry styles at prices that fit nicely into your budget. When you buy jewelry from one of our Bay Area locations, you can find unique and stylish pieces that optimize your wardrobe. We also sell furniture to help you makeover your entire house.

Creative Ways to Store Jewelry at Home

Creative Ways to Store Jewelry at Home

Is your jewelry box getting a little too full? It’s easy to expand your jewelry collection when you shop at a consignment store. Since a consignment store can offer a selection ranging from everyday pieces to jewelry for special occasions, the only hard part of buying jewelry there is figuring out how to store it at home. If you’re running out of traditional ways to store your jewelry or you’re tired of everything getting tangled, use these tips for creative ways of storing your jewelry at home.

Shadow Boxes

When you’re in a rush to get ready for a date or a night out on the town, the last thing you want is to be fumbling through your jewelry box looking for your favorite necklace. Instead of using a jewelry box, hang a shadow box with hooks on your wall. Your necklaces will hang, making sure the chains stay untangled, and you’ll be able to see all of your options in front of you.

Chains

There are few things more frustrating than rooting through your jewelry box trying to find one missing earring. An easy fix for this is to hang a chain horizontally on your wall. That way, you can hang all of your pairs of earrings right next to each other, and you’ll be less likely to lose single earrings.

Jewelry Trees

If you are an appreciator of nature, you’ll love this idea for jewelry storage. Find a branch outside with a few arms and place it in a colorful vase on your dresser. You can hang necklaces and bracelets off of the arms, and even use it to store rings if the branches are narrow enough. This fun idea brings a little natural beauty into your daily routine.

Book Boxes

If you prefer having jewelry boxes but are tired of boring designs, you can get creative with them. Hollow out old or unwanted hardcover books and use the empty space to hold your jewelry. You can have different book boxes for earrings, rings, bracelets, and more.

You’ll be glad to have all of these jewelry storage options after a shopping trip to Home Consignment Center. Come in to one of our two Austin locations to find one-of-a-kind jewelry, accessories, and pieces for your home. Give us a call at (925) 309-7231 to learn more about buying from a consignment store.

How to Buy Pearls

Quality jewelry can be used for a variety of occasions and remains a part of your personal collection for many years. If you want to buy a classic piece that enhances every facet of your wardrobe, pearl jewelry is a great option. Keep reading for some tips on buying pearls.

Pay attention to the luster of the pearl. Quality pearls are those that seem to have an inherent shine that originates from somewhere within. If you are buying earrings or a ring, you should look for pieces with smaller pearls. If you want a necklace, however, larger pearls are a better and more aesthetically appealing option. Choose a style that complements the other pieces in your wardrobe so you can create a wide array of new outfits that work well together.

Come to Home Consignment Center to shop for pearls and other great pieces of jewelry. We offer an amazing selection of jewelry and furniture at hard-to-beat prices so you can always find the items you need. Call (818) 880-8331 to learn more about our jewelry and furniture selection in Calabasas.
