By Kristin Coughlan The following is a guest post by Kristin, the creator of The Consigna Collection and an avid DIY shopper.
She’s also the author of the new book ‘Consigna: The Complete Guide to the Greatest Christmas Gifts Ever Made’.
This article first appeared on KristinCoughlan.com Kristin has been selling consignment goods since she was a little girl, but her first real love was making them herself.
Kristin started her own small consignment business in 2009, but soon realised that the consignment store business was losing momentum.
“I realised that there were so many brands that were making so many mistakes that they were just not making enough money,” she said.
Consigns, like any other type of handmade item, require a little bit of time and planning to make. “
So I started making my own consignment items.”

Kristins handmade goods are a perfect fit for the holiday season, as she has lots of family and friends who she can rely on for help when she needs them.
Kristine and her mother-in-law, Jane, were always very generous with their time.
“It’s so hard for me to not take my kids on holiday, because they love being out and about with their friends,” Kristin said.
And she loves being able to spend more time with them.
“Being a mom and all of my kids are out and having fun, they can’t wait to go back home,” she explained.
Kristina’s favorite gifts Kristin always enjoys making gifts for her children, so it’s no surprise that her collection of handmade gifts includes everything from cute handmade paper dolls to brightly coloured pencils.
“We have lots of paper and pencils and things that are very cute and fun for my kids to play with,” she joked.
“The most fun I’ve had with it is playing with the little ones’ pencils,” she added.
“There’s a lot of fun things to make with these.”
Kristin also loves having lots of gifts for people in her community.
“My daughter loves to make things, and she’s always been a great help for my sister-in to make presents for us,” she laughed.
“She makes her own things and she does all the shopping for us, so we’re really happy with the gift,” Kristina said.
But Kristin’s latest Christmas gift is a little different from most.
Kristi loves to travel and explore.
She started her career as a fashion designer, but decided that it was time for her to try something new.
Kristy, Kristin and Jane are all very excited to start making holiday gifts, and Kristin loves to be creative.
“If you have a few months of holiday planning, you can really be creative,” Kristine said.
Kristie’s first Christmas gift was a set of tiny gifts that she made from scrap yarn.
“A lot of people have never made gifts from scrap.
I think it’s just an art form that people have always enjoyed doing.
I thought, ‘I’m going to make a set from scrap and do something new for Christmas,'” Kristi said.
It took her six months to get it all done, and there was so much that she loved doing with it, she was excited to share it with all of her friends.
“You can put it together in an hour or an hour and a half, and you can put the little things that you love together,” she shared.
I hope that it’s something you can make too.” “
That was my first Christmas present, and now it’s one of my favourite Christmas gifts.
I hope that it’s something you can make too.”
Consignment goods can also be an effective way of saving money.
Kristen has spent years working with her parents to buy the best possible Christmas gifts for them, so she knows that if she had to pick only one gift for her family, it would be one that would have the best potential to be a savings tool.
“Consignment is really a way of keeping the money you make for yourself and keeping the ones you spend on other things,” she noted.
“People have really enjoyed it for Christmas gifts and that’s just a great way of spending money.
Kristi also loves to share her love of crafts with others. “
And it’s great to save on the big things like Christmas trees, and Christmas trees can be really expensive, so the consigna is great for that.”
Kristi also loves to share her love of crafts with others.
She loves to paint her nails, make her own candles, or paint a Christmas tree.
“For me, there’s nothing better than having someone paint my nails, paint a candle, or give me some beautiful gifts,” Kristi shared.
