Sonya Nix and here husband were having a weekend away in TN when they wandered into a strange new kind of shop – a Consignment Store. Sonya, being the ever-creative and talented woman that she is, immediately starting thinking about all the fun and cool things she could do with a consignment store. She was at a point in her life when a little change was a welcomed opportunity and she (now laughing hysterically at the thought) said that at the time she thought to herself, “this doesn’t look that hard.”
So statistics tell us that the average woman (with a life expectancy of 80 years of age) will spend approximately $125,000 in her lifetime on clothing and accessories. This will equate to just over 3,100 different items and include 145 handbags, 185 dresses and yes you guessed it – – over 270 pairs of shoes! It appears most women, on average, will spend somewhere between $150 and $400 every month on clothing. That’s about $1,800 to $4,800 a year! Don’t you think it’s ironic, then, that after all that shopping and spending, that 3 out of 5 women complain they don’t have anything to wear in their closet! I’m over here giggling to myself because I know that’s me at least 3 or 4 mornings a week!
