Rising temperatures in the United States will not hinder people from enjoying the summer. After a long, frigid weather, lighter garments in brighter hues are now sought by many consumers across the country.

Part of the growing secondhand industry, consignment stores work through the traditional buy-sell trade model, wherein previous owners turn over various items, from electronics to clothing to a third-party store to sell them at lower prices. Both the seller and the buyer benefit from the money earned for the sold goods either through splitting the amount at agreed rates or giving the trader upfront cash.
