A friend of mine told me I just had to check this place out, and I am so glad I did!
Beyond the cool consignment finds, I found that this little shop is setting out to make a huge impact on it's community. Conshy Consignment is run by a small business owner, Libby Broggi, who has more in mind than her own profit.

"Our mission is to invest in our community by offering income opportunities for consignors, and local artisans, as well as provide income opportunities for charities and organizations. This is not just shopping, it is reinvesting in a community"- Conshy Consignment
Libby Broggi (pictured right) used to head up the PTO at her school, and would organize a yard sale for the school. She ended up turning her business model from a yard sale into the model for her small business. It's forward thinking like Conshy Consignment that other businesses, especially ones that work on a local level, need to start modeling.
If you're wondering why someone would work so hard to invest into their community, you are not alone. The answer is simple, however. "That's just who she is" said a member of Cradles to Crayons at a Conshy Connects! event the consignment store hosts once a month.
"Once a month Conshy Consignments hold a sidewalk sale, Conshy Connects, to benefit a local charity or cause. 100% of Conshy Connects sales are donated (and they mean every penny) to that month’s charity. The next Conshy Connects is Sunday, June 1st from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
June’s proceeds will go to Take Steps for Crohn’s & Colitis, in support of team “Hershey Squirtzzz.” This team is in support of Molly Liska’s (Conshy Consignment’s Internet Sales Manager) 13 year old niece, Michael Elizabeth Liska, who suffers from Crohn’s." morethanthecurve.com

You really can't forget about the clothes! This store is laid out so well. When you walk in you can instantly tell this place has a classy feel without classy prices! (A hard find these days). I'm talking Coach sneakers and gorgeous Steve Madden wedges for $30 or less! The clothes are brand name and cheaper than you'll find in any department store.
What is even better-- yes it gets better-- is that the longer an item has been there, the cheaper it costs! How great is that?! You can get your prices checked for you at the register, or just view the month the clothing came into the store on it's tag. Cool, right?! You can also buy clothes from their online inventory from their website!
A store that won't hurt the wallet, and yet stretches every dollar to help organizations, artisans, and the community. What more could you ask for?
