    I'm starting consignments in a very small way. I have 2 friends in different areas who frequent thrift stores anyways searching for me. This way I get the experience I need about handling different people and organization and there's no hard feelings between anyone in the event I or they mess up.

    What's the correct term for this label? Ralph Lauren Blue Label? Trying to figure out how to make it stand out from all the PRL.


    Thanks

    I'm afraid thats a bit of keyword spamming but I may go with that.

    It turns out mozilla doesn't like Imageshack host. It was fixed when I changed it to photobucket

    Hey fellas, what's the best way to ship suspender? (braces), can't seem to find any guides etc. I just don't want them opened up wrinkled etc.

    I use 3x3x3 cardboard boxes but you will probably need to buy 20 to 50 to get the cost per box to a reasonable level. Ship First Class at around $3.
