Stefanie Mathews always loved consignment for finding great stuff for her kids that's recycled and sold for a good price. Seeing a need in her community for a consignment store that focused on sports and dance, she opened Flip Consignment where customers can convert quality used items into cash, use proceeds to fund upgrades, and enjoy a pleasant shopping experience.
