Flip Consignment | How the Love of Consignment Turned into Thriving Business

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.

Year Established: 2013
Type of Business: Retail Store

1279 Springfield Avenue, New Providence, NJ 07974

Local ties: Stefanie and Bruce Mathews moved from Manhattan to New Jersey in search of a friendly community and good schools to raise their family. They have two sons who play sports and music -- both attend Chatham Schools.

Community causes: Every year, Flip Consignment enthusiastically sponsors local sports teams and contributes to local fundraisers and charities like Big Brothers/Big Sisters. 

About Stefanie:

Quirky Stat: 280 hockey skates consigned in 2017. As of 12/7/2018 Flip has 2617 consignors.
Best moment as a business owner:
Proud Moment Ribbon Cutting in 2013. Getting my first feedback from customer about how the store is providing such a great service to the community.
Favorite activity in New Jersey: Jersey shore with family. Tubing down the Delaware River. Apple /pumpkin picking at local farms.
