Snob Shop

With women-owned businesses near and dear to Forsyth Woman’s heart, Snob Shop at 1020 Burke Street in Winston-Salem boasts of top-notch consignment finds – but don’t let the name fool you. Snob Shop prides itself in providing its shoppers with reasonable prices for great steals. Having graced the Burke Street community for 50 years and counting, Snob Shop specializes in reselling furniture, designer goods, art and decor, men’s and women’s clothing, accessories, toys and games, and more. 

Open Tuesdays through Saturdays from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., the Snob Shop team allows potential consignors to stop by for an appointment and review for 20 items adhering to consignment guidelines. Consignors earn 40 to 50% commission on items sold, depending on price. Snob even allows customers to browse the store’s inventory online, which is a true gem for introverts and out-of-towners looking to support the local consignment industry.

Snob Shop is passionate about promoting local businesses and being environmentally friendly. Snob Shop’s web page explains, “The manufacturing and consumption of products account for 70% of emissions, highlighting the need for mindful consumption and circular lifecycles for products. The Snob Shop takes its responsibility to the environment very seriously; we don’t use disposable shopping bags and use only recycled materials for packing.”

Additionally, Snob prioritizes donating funds to numerous local charities and nonprofit organizations, including Ronald McDonald House, Trellis Supportive Care, Winston-Salem Symphony and LEAD Girls of NC.

Chameleon Kids Consignment

Clemmons-based Chameleon Kids Consignment opened in 2020 and has been selling gently used children’s and baby clothing, toys, shoes, accessories and gear ever since. Owner Claire Wait, a North Carolina resident since 2004, perfected her craft of consignment as a former high school teacher. As a wife and mother of four children, Chameleon Kids is a profitable and productive passion project that benefits the community and environment.

Accepting a wide range of infant and children’s clothing and shoe sizes, the shop also sells maternity and nursing attire for mothers. Find items with notorious brand names such as Ralph Lauren, Vineyard Vines, Patagonia, The North Face and more.

Consignment shopping for children not only saves money and supports local businesses, it also makes the most sense for ever-growing infants and children who quickly outgrow clothing, shoes and interests. Your child’s once-loved toys don’t have to go to waste once he or she has moved on to bigger and better items of entertainment. Share the love and send your child’s gently used pastimes off to the team at Chameleon Kids to brighten a child’s day. 

Don’t wait to check out what Chameleon Kids has to offer.
