Consignment, Resale and Thrift shopping is perfect to save money over the holidays and give back to the environment.

NEW YORK - eMusicWire -- With current inflation rising during this holiday shopping season, many will look for ways to save money.  Secondhand shopping, including thrift, resale and consignment stores, offer a cost-saving option to consumers with a desire to give quality gifts at a reduced cost. Shopping second hand has a big positive social and environmental impact. It reduces carbon emissions, saves lots of resources, water, and energy. It also prevents old clothing from ending up in landfills or incinerators. Buying second-hand clothing is great for your wallet and the environment.

Tanya Young Williams, owner of newly-opened Central Park Resale (CPR) and former VH1 Basketball Wives standout,  is a well-known African American businesswoman, advocate against domestic violence, and inspirational speaker.  CPR offers the following: consignment of high-end luxury items; resale of stylish, gently worn fashions; sale of affordable and trendy thrift clothing (under $15); and a gallery offering exposure to independent designers, trunk shows, artists, and original art pieces. "With the excitement of seeing people face-to-face this holiday season, we anticipate more gift-giving than last year. CPR provides a source to save money while spreading holiday cheer," says Young Williams.
