Giving New Life to Clothes
Topic: Carolina Prom Dresses

American women are learning to take advantage of a new treasure right in their closet. They are discovering the new fashion style of their grandmothers. They are finding out that these styles are still in vogue. Most teenagers are going to their grandparents' house to get a lesson in the style of the past.

The clothes of yesteryear are good enough to be worn at prom these days. If the clothes are in poor shape, they can get a few knock-offs made. For a reasonable price, they get to wear the style their grandmothers found chic.

More and more, women are supplying their outfits to consignment shops. They are participating in this kind of exchange. They get credits and go right into the cycle of shopping. For those who want to discard good-looking clothes, they find out that there is a ready market for their surplus.

More and more women are giving a new life to their old clothes. Sometimes, they are surprised to realize that even before they leave the store, the clothes they just dumped are sold out. The consignment shops pay them up to 50% of the final price. It's a win win situation for everybody involved. Now consignment shops are a few notches higher than the regular thrift stores which accept all kinds of clothing. Managers or owners of consignment shops are somewhat picky. They know what sells. They tend to pick what they need. What they don't need goes to the thrift shops.

More and more teenagers are creating a market for old prom dresses. The new thing are consigned prom dresses. What are they going to do with all these dresses? Somebody else may want to wear them. The next thing you are going to find out are consigned wedding dresses, consigned quinceanera dresses and gowns.

There are thousands of possible opportunities.
