For savvy clothing shoppers and fashion lovers, consignment shops are a true gift. Not only do they have an ever-shifting palette of clothing and accessories to choose from, but they also serve as a solution for the problem of what to do with all of the clothing you already have but never wear anymore. A good consignment shop is better than Good Will or any other donation program in that you get money back for your donations. In Baltimore, these are some of the best locations to bring your used-but-still-good clothing to get a little profit in return.
