My wife is going to open a homemade crafts & gift shop in Kaohsiung next month, but is a bit worried about how much money it will generate. I’ve suggested using half the space for a second-hand shop, but she’s expressed doubts about whether or not Taiwanese people would actually consign their goods to only get 60% of the selling price. ( Most shops in North America only give 40-50% )
She seems pretty convinced that most people would just sell things themselves on e-bay for 100% of the money and don’t mind the hassle of it if they can make a few extra NT. I’ve never actually seen a full-on thrift shop in Taiwan so maybe she’s right. Thoughts?
