A new report explains the basic startup process for starting a consignment shop or thrift shop. The report from Shoestring Publishing is part of their "How To Start A Startup" series of business courses and books that have helped many people start a startup business.

According to search data from Google, many people are interested in learning how to start a consignment shop or thrift shop. To take this step of starting a startup, a new entrepreneur must pass the learning curve that includes both business principles as well as niche-specific startup details that the entrepreneur must know, and according to Justin Douglas of Shoestring Publishing, their courses are designed to give startup owners the knowledge they need to succeed.

The report on consignment shops covers every aspect of starting a consignment shop. The first step breaks down how to decide what the theme of the consignment shop should be: "Consider the appropriate period from which your clothing should originate. What period of history appeals to you in clothing? It is important to figure out where you want your historic collection to originate from – for example – Europe or North Asia? When you have figured out the specific historical era you would like to create your collection around, you will be able to investigate it more thoroughly."

Thrift stores and vintage consignment shops have their own clothing and also sell other people's clothing. It is a business model common in almost every city, as vintage clothing stores and various consignment stores can be found everywhere in most countries of the world. For those that are interested in starting a store like this, it is possible to get inventory in many ways including having it made or visiting garage sales in expensive neighborhoods where the residents give away great clothing in top condition for little or no money.

"Think about having clothes created just from scratch," the report says. "If you are interested in authentic historical designer clothing, find a reputable tailor, an authentic pattern, and allow their expertise to bring that era’s clothing to life. As actual items of antique clothing are rare and spendy, this is much more pragmatic."
