The new “Garage Sale Store” is making it easier for people who don't want to organize garage sales themselves. At the shop, you can drop off your items and the owner takes care of the rest.
Marcella Dominguez wants to help people who are moving, downsizing, de-cluttering or in the mood to turn unwanted items into money.
"I thought why not sell a store where people can bring in their items... items that they don't want... items they're not going to use... and why not offer them the ability to make a buck or two," Dominguez said.
The store accepts everything including appliances, furniture and baby items all on consignment. The store gets a percentage when the items sell and the consignor gets the rest.
Dominguez said Saturday is the best day to shop.
"Buyers can come in and negotiate their price if they don't like the price we're offering to sell something at," Dominguez said.
Susana Morales is becoming a regular shopper.
"It's very affordable stuff in there and it's brand new stuff,” said Morales. “So I did like it."
Newschannel 9 talked to sellers too. A man brought in a queen size bedroom set and it sold two weeks later.
"I didn't have room in storage so it was easier for me to bring it here and let them take care of everything," said seller Jorge Tellez.
The Garage Sale Store offers another great service. They'll send a truck to your home to pick up all the things you want to sell.
The Garage Sale Store is located at 11601 Pellicano, #C2. It's open Monday through Thursday by appointment, Fridays from 6 to 9, Saturdays from 7-1 and Sundays from 11-1. For more information, you can call 915-227-7454 or email firstname.lastname@example.org .
