It is such a pleasure to bring a new shopping and selling experience to Lorain County! I grew up here, on the shores of Lake Erie, and never thought I would take the chance to move back. I married a graduate from the Naval Academy and spent most of my time chasing after our kids and changing addresses, depending on where the Navy needed us. Each move was a new adventure with memorable experiences and people. But when retirement was on the horizon, we began looking to move closer to family and a move to Northeast Ohio called me back home.
I had participated in similar consignment events when we were stationed down South. One in particular Weepeats, in Augusta, GA, made quite an impression on me. Not only was I able to make over $300 selling outgrown baby and kid items, but working the sale connected me with more people in the community and gave me the idea to one day create a sale of my own. It took almost 14 years, but it is finally my turn to start this business and I am thrilled to kick it off close to where I grew up and with people who were part of my "original" community.
Being of service to others inspires me and is the reason I chose to seek out local charities that will benefit from the consignors' donated goods after the sale. Selling gently used items in a collective location helps people save money and time, while also hopefully delaying excessive landfill dumping. Plus, who doesn't like a quality bargain?
The mission statement of Your Turn Consignment is to provide a positive selling and shopping experience while encouraging community building and compassion for local charities. I sincerely hope you will join me on this journey. Let's do some good today! Warmly, Bridget
