Merchandise often sold through consignment shops in Petersburg 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.
