How we gather (and how to interpret) our data

Our ratings turn up many local drycleaners who can tune up your clothes. The really good news? Many top-rated shops also charge low prices, meaning they won’t clean out your wallet while they clean your wardrobe.

Our ratings tables will help you find area shops that offer top-quality shoe repairs at reasonable prices.

Shoe repair shops can perform several tasks to fix up your footwear.

Here are a few basic steps to follow in dealing with whatever shop you choose.

Brick-and-mortar resale stores either take your stuff on consignment (you get paid when it sells) or offer you cash up front. You stand to make a bit more money with consignment, but the money now option offers instant gratification.

In the past 10 years, more than a dozen online clothing resale sites have cat walked onto the scene. Some do all the work for you; others make you into a virtual boutique owner. You might make more money than at a traditional brick-and-mortar store.

No, you won’t get a large return on your original clothing investment (think 20 percent or less). But consigning in-season, clean, up-to-date items by recognizable brands ups your success rate.
