Hanger, oh hanger, wherefore art thou hanger?
Shakespeare notwithstanding, where do you find hangers? It’s a common question and you’re not alone. At a JBF sale, all of our clothing will be on hangers, sorted by gender and size. So this is a fairly critical part of your sale prep.
As for what kind of hanger it is, it does not matter. Plastic or wire, small or large; if it hangs it, it works!
Searching for hangers in your closet is the first step. If you purchased a new item at one point and still have that hanger, you could use that. If you can pilfer your best friend’s closet…or grandma’s or your neighbor’s…try there, too.
If you’ve exhausted your “free” search – consider your local dollar store or resale shop. Many times hangers are bundled for 10 for $1. We’ve also had many consignors who have a great relationship with their dry cleaner and find them that way. Garage sales during the summer months are also great ways to score (it pays to think ahead!).
If, after you’ve exhausted all your options, you can purchase packs of hangers from Melanie and Melissa – feel free to email them. Or, you may check online. Just use your favorite search engine to check online for “bulk, inexpensive hangers.” You won’t be the first to search for it – and many online retailers sell them.
Oh – and PSST! When you’re hanging your clothes – make sure the hanger looks like a question mark (open side on the left)!
