Why is Belles and Beaus the best place to consign ?

Belles and Beaus has YOUR interests in mind.  After shopping at several sales across the midlands, we have decided to do things differently here at BELLES AND BEAUS. We will use state of the art computer programs and barcodes to help keep track of your items, expedite check out so you do not have to wait in long lines and help speed up getting your money to you.  No more waiting weeks on end for your check to arrive.  It is our goal to eventually have your checks ready for you when you pick up your unsold items, but that may be a few sales away.  You get 70% of the selling price for the items that you sell with us and we only charge a $5 fee for advertising and to help cover sale costs.   We will carefully inspect all items that will be sold at our sale.  This will save you time not having to look through over packed racks of stained and ripped clothing, but also will give you confidence that what you are buying is the best of the best.  Our V.I.C. Tagging Service is the 1st of its kind in Lexington.  This will help those busy moms who have always wanted to consign their nice clothing and equipment, but just did not have the time to do it.  We will be using a large gymnasium for the sale, so the merchandise can be spread out to eliminate cramped spaces for your shopping pleasure.  As an added incentive, we will be drawing for gift certificates to be used during the sale at our Preview Party on Thursday night, but you must be present to win.  We give you not 1, but 2 passes to the Preview Party for you and a guest.  Plus, your guest does not have to wait an hour outside the door to be allowed entrance into the sale.  The 2 passes are both good for the same time frame.  Our sale will be located in Lexington, so those living in the area can benefit from a top notch sale without having to travel all over Columbia to get to it.  You can also have confidence in knowing that all items donated to the sale will go to benefit needy families in Lexington.  The Crisis Ministry of Lexington Baptist Church will be accepting these donations as well as identifying needy families in our community that can benefit from shopping at no charge after the sale is complete.  A portion of the proceeds from this sale will go directly to assist The Crisis Ministry of Lexington Baptist Church as well.  For more information about this worthy cause, please visit their web site at www.lexingtonbaptist.org.
