How to prepare and sell belts in a thrift store
Selling belts in a thrift store is a tricky proposition.
Belts can be a valuable add on sale.
Assign one person to handle your accessory items. So they become familiar with what sells and what doesn't.
Belts are not a high value item but they can help sell a whole outfit to someone whose on the fence.
Sorting belts goes along the same usual guidelines. Throw out any of these:
- NO rips, stains, tears of any kinds.
- Also belts where the holes have been worn in two are big no no's.
- belts whose edges are frayed or worn out completely.
Good quality designer belts should be closely examined to see if they are worth saving and put on the sales floor.
Belts are perfect add on sale.
This is how not to tag.
You got your belts sorted and are ready to price, how do you tag?
I can tell you how not to tag.
Never tape over leather or finish because the longer that tape sits on the belt, the harder it will be to get off and sometimes if it's a cheap enough finish, the finish will come off with it.
you're you're gonna take the time to hang and sort belts do it right.
And for heaven's sake, never ever write on a belt with any type of marker.
