40 Catchy Consignment Store Names

Updated on February 5, 2017

If you have an eye for second-hand treasures and the heart of an entrepreneur, then opening a consignment shop is just right for you! Be your own boss while running a quality consignment shop.


Opening a Consignment Shop

If you’re not familiar with the idea of consignment, the idea is actually quite genius! As a business owner, you won’t spend any money on the items, but still make a profit. As a client, you have the service of someone selling your things for you, only forfeiting a percentage of the sale cost. As a consumer, you score some great deals! It’s truly a business where everyone wins! But how do you go about starting up?

For a consignment shop, you will want to find a good and busy location. Try to be in areas nearby but not too close to other second-hand stores as when people go “thrifting,” they tend to make a day of it by hitting all the local stores. Downtown areas or busy strip malls are typically ideal locations for a consignment shop.

While looking for that perfect location, it is important that you are also looking into registering your business with the state and again locally in order to be conducting business the legal way. Although you won’t require any special permits for this kind of business, you still need general business licensing and a business tax receipt displayed in your place of business.

As far as stocking the store goes, initially, you will need some things to attract business. Be sure to post advertisements in newspapers and on Craigslist looking for consignors, have a sign out by the road, and ask family! You can also keep a close eye on the Craigslist page for free items and snag those up, as a lot of times, the stuff is in perfectly good condition! Once the word gets out about your business, you’ll have people lining up wanting to sell their items.

One important aspect about opening a consignment shop is that you really need to stay organized! Consignors will need to sign a contract which protects both the business and the consumer. Each item that comes in that door should be assigned a unique stock number, in which you will need to record on a spreadsheet in order to keep track of the sale. Careless record-keeping can get a consignor in trouble and lead to an accidental breach of contract! You’re trying to build a reputable business; keep this in mind at all times, and your record-keeping should be spot-on.

How to Name Your Business

Consignment Shop Names

One last thing to think about is consignment shop names! If you plan on having the business around for a while, then you will want to have a good, catchy, brandable name! Here’s some tips to think about when brainstorming consignment shop names:

  • Be specific: Not all consignment shops are centered around clothing. Some may deal strictly in baby and children items, while others may fancy antiques and vintage items. If you have a specific consignment business, and you likely will, reflect this in the name.
  • Rhyme: Having a name containing rhyming words can make it a lot easier for customers to remember your name, thus drawing in more business.
  • Your name: Consignment shops typically stay small and have a single employee, which would be you! Be proud and stand tall in the business you are building; there’s nothing wrong with that!
