Finding just the right thing to complement your personal style or personal space is a dream come true. Unfortunately, designer labels, inspired classics, cool trends and gorgeous antiques have one thing in common – they generally come with hefty price tags. Luckily, savvy Sacramentans can score great deals on new or gently used items that are available in consignment shops. Many shoppers enjoy the process so much that they bring in their own items for consignment; if an item is purchased, both the consignment shop and the seller make some money.
