Consignment shops?

I had the worse experience yesterday with a local consignment shop (if you live local and want to know which one, e-mail me and I will tell you). I took Katie's Britax Marathon in and the owner told me that she could only get $30 for it! What??? Which meant that I would only get $15. She was so rude, telling me how they just don't sell, people want the cheaper ones, etc. This was after I had called her and she told me that she can't keep them in her store, they sell so fast. So, while I was waiting for Gillian to load it back into the trunk, I looked in her car seat room where she had 2 Marathons, both in the same condition as mine priced at $85. So much for her selling them fast huh? I asked her for the history on them....none. No way to know if they had been in a crash or not.

So, I am glad that I didn't consign and will sell the seat myself. There has to be someone out there that wants a Marathon with a brand new cover?

I just can't get over how rude this woman was!

That's ridiculous, $30 for a Marathon? Why don't you list it on Craigslist?

ditto on the craigslist -
you'll get a much much fairer deal.

don't you worry about consignment shops for clothes - I just got a boatload of size 8 and 10's, so our girls are dressed from now until at least size 10! And I have a HUGE box of size 6 with your name on them.

Greed ... plain and simple.
