Consignment shops in Fairbanks are second-hand stores that offer used goods at a lower cost than new. Many offer new items as well. Merchandise often sold through consignment shops in Fairbanks include antiques, athletic equipment, automobiles, books, clothing, furniture, firearms, music, musical instruments, tools, and toys. In the shop, a consignor typically brings his second-hand clothes to be reviewed; the acceptable clothes are then taken for selling in the store. These items are generally in perfect condition and lightly used without any stains/damages/defects. The clothes are then priced at a fraction of their retail price. When a consignor's item(s) sell, he is able to receive the profit. Consignment differs from 'selling outright' where a seller brings his items in and receives immediate payment on review.
