Consignment Benefits: The Environment
The Eco-Conscious Choice in Fashion

If you've been a Two Big Blondes consignor, you already know how nice it is to receive a check in the mail or use your store credit for new outfits. But you can feel good about your consignment beyond your own pocket - it is an enormous benefit to our environment.

As the "fast fashion" trend has taken hold of the fashion industry (cheap & 
disposable clothing), textile waste has become a growing strain on our environment. The Circular Fibres Initiative explains , " Every second, the equivalent of one garbage truck of textiles is landfilled or burned. An estimated US$500 billion value is lost every year due to clothing that's barely worn and rarely recycled. If nothing changes, by 2050 the fashion industry will use up a quarter of the world's carbon budget."

Here at Two Big Blondes we're proud to be part of the recycling of clothing through consignment. The items you bring in are saved from the landfill and the items purchased reduce the demand for more production. In addition, items you donate find new homes through our nonprofit either directly to those in need or through our bi-annual bag sale. Lastly, soiled fabrics are donated to a textile recycling program.

March Consignment
Spring is Here! 
We're fully into spring clothing now, looking for lighter-weight pieces including linen, cotton & acrylic sweaters, twill jackets & pants and jeans. We will take   
ankle boots but no more knee-high boots or suede shoes. Some "hearty" sandals like Keens or Danskos are ok now, but most sandals we'll take   
starting in April along with capris. Shorts and summer dresses we'll take in May. We take swimsuits year-round but are only taking one-piece or 2-piece tankinis now.

Spring is a great time to think about consigning that wedding gown taking up space in your closet. We offer a 50/50 split on wedding gown consignments. In addition we can reconsign wedding gowns until they sell. We'd love to have more gowns size 20 and up and we have many brides looking for these sizes. We're looking for   
gowns in good condition with no more than very slight wear or marks. 
Hope to see you soon, Lisa
