What a whirlwind our lives are! Don’t you agree? Months of planning and hard-work behind the scenes before Congress, and before you know it, not only have we set up but the month is nearly gone by in a flurry of events, fun, and familiar faces!

While the Fall show schedule, and Congress particularly, is traditionally a time for ordering a new garment or seeing the latest collections -- like our new introductions Vaquero and In The Irons -- it is also a fabulous time to consign a garment or browse the selection of stylish garments in our consignment inventory. Berry Fit, as well as other vendors who sell consignment or resale clothing, have seen a noticeable increase in the number of clients purchasing from this venue.

For the parents who are unsure as to the show interest their child may have, or the showperson who loves to get the greatest value for their dollar, there is definitely an advantage to purchasing a quality consignment garment. In fact, the upswing in consignment sales has led to growth in the number of vendors involved in carrying resale.

And in the reverse, consigning a garment allows the consignee to make space in their wardrobe for a new garment, replace pieces that have been outgrown, and if the garment sells, recoup some of the garment’s initial investment.

Well-made garments should last for several years and be easy to care for. At Berry Fit, we not only re-sell clothing that we have designed and made, but we also alter, wash and restore missing stones for our clients. We also do the same for clothing that we did not produce.

Our focus is to make shopping easier and faster for show people. With the level of excellence and construction that is put into every Berry Fit garment, you can consign or purchase a consignment with confidence.

Congress will be wrapping up this week and we’ll be heading home long enough to repack and head off to Massachusetts! I hope to see you at a show sometime this Fall, or as always, we would love to book a trunk show at your home or host you in gorgeous New Philadelphia!

Wishing you a wonderful weekend!
