My family has been going to this store for 10+ years, ever since we moved to Okemos from Saginaw. The staff has ALWAYS been rude, snotty, stuck up, arrogant and just all together unfriendly.

I love this store, but the male who works there is a Creeper -- he seems to follow you around and watch everything that you do; he just has a weird demeener; I actually try to avoid going there when he's working.
I love selling my items here and always have great success. I also love to shop for great finds here.

I took some clothes in for consignment and they accepted everything. I did make sure everything was clean, pressed, no stains and on hangers. I did listen to their recording regarding what season of clothing they are accepting. I sold everything except a few items within the timeline for me to come pick it up (I think 3 months?). I did go pick up my unsold items and drove them straight to Goodwill. I make about $50-65 and still had some items left over to donate.

I don't shop @ 2ndTA anymore as the sales people are anything, but friendly or helpful. The owner walks around like a grumbling witch. The one and only male that was there is a joke!! Nope never again will I step into that store. Goodwill and Walmart is good enough for me. I'll go to 2K for friendly and warm service and pay a little more for beautiful, used clothes......

This store is still the best in town! There is so much stock to choose from with new items coming in everyday. Sometimes my clothes are turned down for consignment but the workers have to be choosey because of the volume of clothes that they have to look at and take in on a daily basis. I especially love it for children's clothing. I wish that they would get rid of some of the clothing on the racks because sometimes it is too packed, but there is a good selection. Compared to other consignment shops in the area, 2nd Time Around is still the best.

Personally, I love Second Time Around. You can count on finding good, quality clothing for ridiculously good prices (I would never, ever pay the amount of money most retail stores ask for things). They sell men's, women's, and children's items, as well as awesome jewelry and purses, with none of the junk that many consignment stores seem to carry. I particularly recommend it to people looking for business attire - the prices are amazing!

If you know how to ask the right questions, consigning at Second Time Around is a breeze. The people there know their business and work hard to ensure that the items they accept are in good condition. They won't accept deeply wrinkled items, true, but every time I've had something turned down it was done politely and professionally. It's their business; they have a right to turn things down. I saw one woman whose things were turned down for an odor. The girl checked with several other coworkers to make sure she was right, and carefully explained that if they did accept things with odors, pretty soon the whole place would smell like Goodwill. That makes sense to me! They're also very careful about their 'seasons'. Many of their rules regarding sleeves, weights, etc., don't necessarily match up with other retail stores, but hey, it's their place. If you ask them, they'll certainly tell you why they can't take something during a season (often I've found it's because of space constraints).

Second Time Around's system is efficient and professional and I love the people there. One person's lousy experience can not match the sheer number of fully satisfied customers and consigners who return regularly - like me.

My recommendation? Call before you consign. Find out what they're taking. Don't get mad when they turn something down; the girls there are just doing their job; just find out why and get it taken care of. And then use the money you make to buy more clothes!

To me, this store is not worth the effort.

Shopping: The racks are crowded, too close together, and poorly organized. Many of the clothes appeared to be very worn and/or outdated styles. The clothes are supposed to be organized by size, but they aren't. I found at least 3-4 different Womens' sizes in the same section of the rack.

Consigning: The prices they're willing to put on the clothes definitely do not make it worth my effort to consign there. Last time, I brought very gently worn Womens' clothes in a number of mid-range brands; Liz Claiborne, Lands' End, Lane Bryant, etc., along with some less expensive Target and Meijer brands, all less than a year old. All garments were clean, wrinkle free, and on hangers. The sales person, who was dressed in an oversized sweater, long corduroy skirt, long johns, and birkenstocks (with socks) did not accept at least half of my items and told me that they were not in current styles. Current compared to what? As I mentioned above, they were all less than a year old and in good shape. Perhaps the the salespeople need to be more educated about fashion.

I would rather sell my clothes on Ebay or even give them away, rather than go through all the trouble of consigning at 2nd Time Around.

I recently returned from the hour+ drive one-way from second time around to consign some clothes. I was told by the girl that went through my clothing that a pair of jeans (washed of course) I had brought in smelled like peanut butter. So they were rejected along with ALL of the other pairs of jeans I had brought in, too. Including a brand new pair of Express jeans with tags that were rejected as well.
I had a nice pair of Nike shoes....no deal on them either. Two pair of leather dress shoes didn't make the cut either. I had everything on "hangers" and "clean", just like they want. Needless to say I won't be returning there to Secondtime Around. I made sure the girl was aware of this before I left. I will definately take my consignments elsewhere to another shop next time, if not just take them to Goodwill. Very poor experience for me.

They may be nice to shop at, but to sell clothes, it's a pain in my butt. The workers are stuck up conceited old biddys. They make you iron everything and have everything on hangers and go through an enormous process to sell things. If they see a wrinkle they get angry.
You could buy a brand new suit, bring it to them if it wasn't on a hanger, they'd flip a nut and let you know how pissed off they were.

Go to the other consignment shops to sell. Less hassle, nicer people, better bang for your buck.

I can not believe the great deals that I find here on a regular basis. I buy so much of my children's clothing at 2nd time around, they always have really quality items. I even sold all of my maternity clothing and got really good prices for my stuff.

I just returned home from hauling some of my clothing to Second Time Around for resale and left thinking, boy this place has changed!! The entire process seemed unorganized. They could not find my number or another consignors - this seemed to cause a stir. Then the girl started going through my clothing. It surprised me that she was not educated on fashion brand labels and was very frustrating. I had a skirt from Cache that she marked it at $8. (It had retailed for $129) She then denied a pair of black, lined career pants from an upscale clothing store fresh from the dry cleaners because they had a "deep wrinkle". I thought," hmm, if I were buying something used I'd rather have that clean 'deep wrinkle' then a stain, missing button, or then the many faded pair of black pants that fill 2nd Time Arounds current inventory." Also turned away was a Talbots Dress because it was "sleeves" . It is a fall career dress that requires a turtle neck or blouse under it but but none the less "sleeveless". Don't these girls look at catalogs from White house black market, J Jill, Talbot to see what women are wearing? That might help. As I scanned the clothing that had made it through the gates I noticed many Target brands, some "deep wrinkle" items, and wondered why mine did not get past the gate keeper? Maybe it is because I am not a regular Okemos consignor and not in the inner circle. It did cross my mind as some of the regulars rolled in and cut to the front of the line and their "deep wrinkled" items went unnoticed. I did not go in the store today but had shopped in the store last week and thought it appeared a bit different. I could not find any name brands, and the items were not as crisp as they used to be. I could see a change in the store that I used to frequent. I did a second lap and found a couture Chanel Black blazer marked for $45. Yep, this store has really changed- This item could have sold for much more. On a Saturday this place is packed with Career women shopping for clothing to wear to the office and I know they are checking for the label. Train your people, a deep wrinkle from the dry cleaner some people may enjoy, even appreciate. The great news is that I have a choice, now I will donate to Goodwill and the other I will use Craigslist and ebay.

This place has two floors PACKED with great finds. I gfot most of my brand name maternity wardrobe here for less than 10% of retail! They have every kind of clothing you can imagine, and only accept the nicest stuff.

I do find that the racks are a little close together, and it is not very handicap accessible, but the variety and quality at the LOW prices makes up for it.

PROS: All kinds of inexpensive clothes
CONS: a little crowded

Second Time Around is what I call a 2-fer. You can find some nice gently used clothing for your family here...AND you can get some cash by selling off some of your own genlty used clothing. This place is HUGE...just be sure to double check the items before you buy them...as they don't allow returns on most items.

I have been shopping and consigning at the 2nd Time Around for the past 25 years and I have never experienced anything like "" jihanemo"" experienced. \r
I have to question the writers honesty. The writer is mis-informed about Second Time Around. One the shop is not a company and it is locally owned and operated. Second: the writer is in error stating that they has shopped in 3 different states, MA.: NY & Il. As a shopper at the store, it is well known that the store is locally owned and operated. So wherever this person has been shopping is questionable. Third the staff have always been pleasant and cooperative-offering suggestions and helpful comments as to why/why not they will accept my clothing. And yes over the years they have had a few 'grumpy"" employees, but they are no longer there. \r
If the writer read their contract they would know that a check is issued only when the amount is $10.00 or more. And perhaps your items did not sell. It also states very clearly on the contract, at least it does on mine- that they are not responsible for items lost or stolen. SO BIG EXAGGERATION JIHANEMO- DO YOURSELF A FAVOR BEFORE YOUR WRITE A REVIEW FOR THE SECOND TIME AROUND OR FOR ANY OTHER STORE FOR THAT MATTER. GET YOUR FACTS STRAIGHT. DON't BE SO DISTUSTING AND SHADY AND QUESTIONABLE. \r
As a shopper and consigner the Second Time Around has served me and my family well from the time it opened its doors to the present. They know their business being the first consignment shop in Okemos/Lansing area. They have been in business successfully for over 25 years.So whatever 2nd TIme Around 'jihanemo' is referring to it is c they are referring to Second Time Around, Okemos, MI

Poor customer service. Once they take your clothes, they really have no interest in (1) paying you on time once your clothes sell, (2) making sure that you get back the items that didn't sell. It took them MONTHS to give me a check for the money the owed me on sold items. They claimed they ""lost"" my items that didn't sell. Really? REALLY? Please folks - do your self a MAJOR FAVOR and AVOID THIS COMPANY. I have lived in 3 different states and used their shops in MA, NY, and IL. EVERY SINGLE location I've been to has disgusting sales people and shady business practices. No exaggeration.They are a joke.

I have been a consignor at 2nd time around for over 10 years, and really am shocked by the number of rude reviews.. I always have encountered friendly staff, that inquire as to my health, how the drive was from where I was coming, my children, etc.. Maybe it's because I'm a long standing customer and am recognized, but I guessing people are easily offended when their items are rejected.. Seriously, they know what sells- most of my items always sell-- \r
\r
Also in regards to the child comment.. I have often seen children in there and always took my baby in his carrier when he was little, and no one ever said a word to me. I'm guessing they do not want to have a bunch of children running around getting into trouble.. as I would for sure not want my child in there creating an issue! \r
\r
I cannot find as good of place that takes as much clothing and gives as good of prices anywhere in the Ann Arbor, Brighton, Hartland, Jackson, area.. so have chosen to commute about once a month to 2nd time around.. they are super flexible with what they take at what times of day.,. Seriously worth your time and effort..

I have consigned clothes at 2nd Time Around a few times, and I have been shopping there for years, despite the fact that the staff have poor manners.

The first time I went to consign clothes, the woman on staff (who was wearing wool socks with sandals, a wrinkly peasant skirt and a piled fleece pull over) had the nerve to laugh at some of the clothes I brought in! I found this to be very unprofessional and offensive.

I have been there to consign clothes other times and the staff was friendly to me, but I noticed them being rude to other people. Also, they will NOT allow any children to be in the consignment room- not even babies in carriers.

Their selection of clothing in the store is usually VERY dated. However, they are an okay source for children clothing.

The only reason that I gave them two stars instead of one is because I feel like you get a good percentage of the garment's sale price. (Which depends upon how soon it sells.)

The first time I went to consign clothes, the woman on staff (who was wearing wool socks with sandals, a wrinkly peasant skirt and a piled fleece pull over) had the nerve to laugh at some of the clothes I brought in! I found this to be very unprofessional and offensive.

I have been there to consign clothes other times and the staff was friendly to me, but I noticed them being rude to other people. Also, they will NOT allow any children to be in the consignment room- not even babies in carriers.

Their selection of clothing in the store is usually VERY dated. However, they are an okay source for children clothing.

The only reason that I gave them two stars instead of one is because I feel like you get a good percentage of the garment's sale price. (Which depends upon how soon it sells.)

Pros: They give you a decent consignment percentage when selling.

Cons: Whether you are selling or buying, the staff is RUDE.

I was bringing in consignments that I had; freshly laundered, ironed, and checked over for flaws. I had been here before so I understood that some pieces would be rejected. After waiting 30 minutes for my turn, The girl who finally came to get me was familiar but her condescending, unfriendly, and beastly behavior was not. As I stood there waiting for her to go through my clothes in the jam packed tiny area, the very kind grandma I had been chatting with was receiving the same behavior from a different staff member. The customer was visibly upset by the rude behavior. Next to her, another woman was getting the same treatment and began to confront the worker. The confrontation escalated. I was not surprised. The people who work there are VERY UNHAPPY women who must be hired for their rude demeanor and trained by management who do not understand the meaning of kindness. I understand they have a job to do and not every item brought in can be accepted but that does not constitute their rudeness.

Cons: very poor service

Dropped off a few times ~ last time was particularly busy and the staff was understandably stressed. But this is no reason to be so very rude !! These women were awful. Not just one member of the staff but the ENTIRE intake staff. Awful to me, awful to women with babies, and awful to very kind elderly women. There just was no excuse for this abherent behavior. I was totally offended and I will NOT be back.

I have shopped and consigned at the 2nd Time Around for the past 25 years. I love the outstanding selection of clothing for women, men and children. Over the years I have purchased excellent clothing inculding designer clothing, handbags and beautiful items of jewellery. My great ' finds' and good customer service keeps me coming to STA back for more. \r

Of course staff (and times ) have changed over the years, however, I have always found the staff to be friendly and helpful and consistent with regards to consignment selection. Athough there have been times that I did not like some of my consignment being rejected (for whatever reason). But staff and owner are in the business of selling and STA know their business. As far as I am concerned STA is a shoppers and bargain hunters delight. \r

Pros: STA is a shopping adventure

Cons: none from my experience

While the men's attire section is considerably smaller than the women's section, STA, does a good job at offering good quality at reasonable prices. Clothing is well organized and the longer it's been in their store, the more discounted the item is. If it's been there long enough, some of the prices are as good and some times better than the prices at thrift stores. I've had uncanny luck in buying suits here when they have just reached their lowest offering price - paying a whole $21 for the most expensive one.\r
\r
While there is a larger selection for larger men (sizes large and x-large), those of us who are smaller still have a good selection to choose from. In fact STA seems to have one of the wider selections for smaller men.\r

Very clean place. Parking has never been a problem. the two changing rooms in the men's section have been enough to keep you from having to wait too long in line to try things on.
