Online Thrift Store Business

shop from home on computer

I thought I should take a few minutes to update you on what is going on with our online thrift and consignment store. If you visited us in the past you know we now have a complete new look and the site functions very differently and admittedly it’s probably better!

I am a little disappointed though in how long it’s taking to add our merchandise. In some cases items have had to be dealt with 3 or 4 times. It’s been partly due to the learning curve of this program and partly due to changing how the merchandise is presented and the balance is just the norm for adding an item.

In a perfect world, (like the way our redesign was handled in 2009) we could take our time to make sure everything was as good as it could get before switching over to the new design. This time we didn’t have the luxury of time. Our ranking on Google was slipping on a weekly basis and this was serious. I won’t go into all the details, but Google changed the way they present their search results which left us out in the cold. For us it was like the saying goes: Do or die!!! So we did. And I think Google will like us again soon.

We hope you’ll hang in there while we continue adding our merchandise and correcting our original mistakes. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed as we have so much new merchandise it will probably take us until we have to redesign the site again to get it on. Just kidding.

An Online Thrift and Consignment Store

Once in a Blue Moon Online Thrift and Consignment Store

If you love thrift store shopping you’ve come to the right place! Here at Once in a Blue Moon Online Thrift and Consignment store, you’ll find new, used and even custom made items filling our cyber shelves. Some items can no longer be found in a department or discount store. So if you’ve been looking for something check us out. Especially since we’re also an online consignment store and so a lot of our items have been consigned to us. People who live all across the nation will bring us an awesome array of merchandise, some of which you may not be able to find where you live. Is it any wonder why we think our thrift store offers the best of all thrift store worlds: New-Used and Custom made?

Something else you’ll find a little different when shopping at our thrift store is how you might come across an antique or a vintage item mixed in with all the other up-to-date merchandise. We call those our ‘hidden treasures’ and we believe they’re what makes thrift store shopping so exciting!  We really think you’ll see it’s just as much fun to browse and shop at our online thrift store  as it is at a brick and mortar store. In fact, we think it’s even better!

Let’s go shopping!
