DO NOT take anything of value here! I consigned a designer hand bag worth several hundred dollars along with a few other items. When I went to receive my money, I was given a grand total of $6.00!!!! They have NO tracking system to indicate what/if my designer bag sold. Obviously, it was STOLEN. All I got was a very curt "sorry, there's nothing we can do." I will never give them my business nor recommend them to anyone!!!

Hi Ladies (since I see no men's names on here),
I appreciate all of your reviews. It has been a long time since I have been in this shop. I tried to consign there twice. The first time I know I took too much, but I think she took a few things. The last time was when I tried to consign my daughter's stuff probably about 10 years ago. I knew I had my best stuff. I should have been fine with this bunch of clothing, even though it was in bags. I had brand new young girl's jeans size 6 to 8 all from Boscov's. My daughter hardly wore them. She just outgrew them. The lady at the shop said they were too worn. She took nothing. I was so annoyed by their attitude that I didn't walk back in there again for any reason. I donated the bags to my friend's niece (who needed them), which made me feel good about unloading new stuff.
I have lots of plus sizes, new with tags, from my mom. We are cleaning out her house. I am so glad that before I bothered to try again, I read these posts. I am going to try to find somewhere worthwhile to donate. I will probably just drop them at the sale at Calvary Methodist Church in Mohnton. That money benefits the mission. I am fine with that.
Thank you again for your posts!

I decided to check this place out since I had lost some weight and hopefully will lose some more, so I wanted to just pick up a couple of things so I don't look like I'm a clown. I found some nice name brand stuff that works for me and was cheap enough. Honestly I won't shop there after I reach my goal weight. The staff is not friendly and I would rather shop somewhere that doesn't make me feel like I'm trying to screw them over or something.

I have to agree with other reviews, the woman working there was extremely rude and the clothes they have for sale there really aren't that great. There are kids shirts for $4 that you can get brand new shirts cheaper at Target. I had a lot of brand name clothes and things that still had the tags on and she acted like it was junk and it was too much effort for her to go through my things. Isn't that her business? When I pulled stuff out to question if she wanted things that were brand new or only worn once-she had a smirk of disgust on her face. I will never step foot in that store again. I would rather give my things away than have that miserable, rude woman make money off of me. At least someone will appreciate my things.

I have bought some great boys clothes here for my little one but I have never shopped for women's clothes or consigned. I decided to try to consign some of my clothes, mostly Eddie Bauer brand. I arrived at the shop with approximately 10 items unaware that I needed an appointment. The owner (apparently one of the two sisters) was very rude and almost confrontational. I have made an appointment but am planning to either find another consignment shop or go to goodwill. I would not go back.

I went to Nothing New in Reading this Am with my husband to make a purchase for my baby. I am currently 7 months pregnant, and after traveling from 35 mins away had to use the restroom. When we got here, I asked the woman if I could use the bathroom, and she said that there was no public restroom, she could obviously see that I was pregnant, she told me that I could go to friendlys and use the bathroom there! Needless to say me and my husband left WITHOUT making a purchase and we will NEVER return!!!!! I would rather pay triple the amount for a item at another store than give these people a dollar!!!! Bad customer service!!!!

I went on Saturday and bought one pair of pants, two sweaters, a skirt and a turtleneck for $28. They had an extensive plus size selection.

I agree the owner is so rude and I will not be doing my business there anymore. More someone who is getting stuff for free to sell you think they would be a little happier and it is shocking the stuff they don't take when it is in good shape and free!!!! Plenty of other places.

I have been a customer of Nothing's New for over 16 years, and have to say I have had nothing but great experiences. When I first arrived in the area, I had 4 young children and very little money. I will never forget some of my special deals I have found there. Their merchandise is good quality, and in good shape. The store is always neat and clean, and everyone has always been helpful and friendly. My favorite spot now that my kids are grown up is the housewares shop. I love buying books still on the best seller list for 2 or 3 dollars ! I have bought beautiful crystal wine glasses, comforters and curtains, crock pots, I could go on and on. In the clothing area I routinely find Land's End, Talbots, and Chicos items at fabulous prices. I have never brought anything in to resell, but I have been there when other people have. Sometimes people bring in ugly or outdated items, and they will reject them. They know their customers, and know what will sell and what will not. And even though I can't remember their names, they always remember mine!Overall a wonderful shopping experience, and highly recommended.

Stephanie, the owner is rude!!! I wanted to tell my whole experience here, but they wouldn't let me. She is condescending and only takes things that are less than 2 years old, even if they are new with tags. I stored things in plastic bins and took them out and put them into plastic trash bags for the trip there. It was easier than dragging the large bins, but she would not accept them in bags, so I took them home, my husband put them back in the bins and we returned. She smirked and felt really good about herself for giving us extra work. There was no difference if the folded clothing was in a bin or a bag. She looks down her nose at everything you bring in like she's doing you a favor by taking it. Maybe if she would smile every once in awhile she would be more personable.

I read some of the previous reviews and I have never had a negative experience at Nothings New! As for the clothing looking warn, THAT is crazy. I even took my son's clothing for them to sell for me and they turned some pieces away that I thought they were in really good shape! I buy clothes for both of my children there and I LOVE the fact that I can buy name brand items like Gymboree, Old Navy, GAP, The Children's Place, Nautica, RL, and so many other for a fraction of the price! I bought my son Nike shorts for 50 cents!! I am going their this week to drop off clothing and I KNOW that I will be leaving with an armful of stuff too. It happens every time. Sometimes negative experiences can often be linked back to a personality type rather than the experience itself, IF you know what I mean. LOL

I heard good things about this shop from a woman at the pool. I stopped by and spent about an hour looking around. I found that the quality of the clothes was not as I expected (some of the boys shirts were so worn that I was shocked that they were there.) Also, when I looked at the prices I discovered that many of the used items were about the same price as the items that I purchased NEW at other stores such as the JC Penney outlet. The bottom line is that the prices do not reflect the quality of the clothing. However, the reason I will NEVER return is due to their poor customer service and rude attitudes. I overheard the 2 women behind the counter making dispariging remarks about a minority family after they just made a large purchase and left the store, and they were very rude to me when I asked questions. I can just imagine what they said about me after I left the store.

If you are a Plus-Size woman who is looking to find a place to consign your clothes, DO NOT go here. I made my appointment to drop off clothing, spent the next two weeks gathering, cleaning, and packing the clothes to go to the shop, got there and the owner, Stephanie, refused to take any of my clothes, all of which were in-style Plus-Size business suits and separates; and a few plain black dresses which never go out of style. She looked at one dress, saw the size and refused all 25 pieces. Instead of being honest, she tried to tell me that it was because they were outdated. They were not. Some of the clothes were new, with the tags still attached. There was nothing wrong with them, they just did not fit me well enough to keep. I found her to be very rude and underhanded. She should have just told me that she did not take Plus-Sizes.

I've done business with Nothings New for about 20 years and have never had any problems with them. They give you a 50/50 split. They're fussy with what they accept. Your items must be clean and in style. They're super friendly and prompt with payment. Goodwill is right up the street, so whatever the consignment shop doesn't take, I just drive up the street and drop off there.

This is a very good consignment shop. My grandmother used them and I used them. They are so friendly. They give you 50% of the sale of your clothing. You can also find good deals too-they carry a lot of name brand clothing in the store. They also have a childrens store too.
