Western N.C. Consignment Shops And Thrift Shops

As you probably already know western North Carolina is already well known for its beautiful scenery but what you may not know is all the really great Consignment Shops and Thrift Shops where you can make some really great money saving purchases.

Always be aware that you can negotiate the prices at most Thrift Shops and Consignment Shops. Sure it may have a price tag but its rarely written in stone. Most Consignment Shop and Thrift Shop owners will be willing to negotiate with you on the price of most items. Especially if the item or items you are interested in have been in the shop for a while.

And another thing you can do especially if the consignment shop or thrift shop has several items you are interested in is to say. Hey you have several items I am interested in. How about if I bought say these five items what is the best you can do on the price. And quite often the shop managers or owners will say yes or make you an offer. You never know until you ask so always be willing to make a offer on an item. You never know they just may say yes or offer it to you at a price lower than what is on the price tag.

I have found that in western North Carolina if I shop at the shops that are open on Saturday afternoon that you will find the shop owners much more willing to negotiate on prices. And while your looking for the local consignment shops and thrift shops don't forget to check out the people having yard sales at the area Flea Markets. Often you can find some real deals at Flea Markets. You want to get there early for the best finds or get there right before they pack up their items to negotiate the best prices on items they really don't want to pack up and take home.

Remember to try to negotiate on prices. Thrift Shops like Goodwill often won't haggle with you on prices but the smaller independent Thrift Shops will quite often negotiate on prices so it never hurts to make a offer.

Ask the employees in Goodwill Thrift Stores and Salvation Army Thrift Stores what days they have bargains or marked down items. If you know a item is clearly over priced be nice in your approach but tell them the item is over priced. It never hurts to let them know. You will find that Thrift Shop prices tend to be lower in the summer months when everyone is having yard sales.

Yard Sales In Summer In Western North Carolina.

And you're you're reading this in the summer time in western N.C. you want to visit the area on Friday and Saturday mornings and you really need a Tom Tom ( GPS Device ) so you can buy the local newspapers with the yard sales listed in them and add the street address to your Tom Tom and let it take you to the yard sale. You can do this over and over and it's a great way to find those yard sales you never could find before.

And what ever you do negotiate at yard sales. They expect you to negotiate. Take a pocket full of ones in one pocket and a pocket full of fives in another pocket and work as hard as you can at buying all the great yard sale bargains. You might want to make a list of the things you are looking for and ask your family and friends to help you find the items you are looking for.

If you travel to Cherokee North Carolina in the summer time you want to be sure to check out all the great yard sales in the yard of the elementary school on Saturday mornings. And be sure as your driving back towards Asheville to plan a stop at Uncle Bills Flea Market on Highway 441 on your way back to Asheville. You want to visit the Flea Markets between 7 A.M. - 12 Noon on Saturdays or Sundays. If its summer time there is a great white water rafting place about 100 yards south of Uncle Bills Flea Market.
