NEW YORK — Gone are the days when consigners had to lug pre-worn and vintage wares in hopes that the local resaler would accept and resell items. The sector is now one of the fastest growing in e-commerce.
A slew of digital consignment Web sites have popped up — like The Real Real, Material Wrld, Vaunte and Closet Rich — that both streamline the secondhand shopping process and broaden the customer base.
