Simply because sorting by color is probably easier for the staff, and because many of the items may not have tags on them and therefore do not have a size. I usually would not buy clothing at a thrift or consignment store, although you can find some pretty amazing things at very low prices! I do however like to purchase books or artwork and trinkets there. You never know what gem you can find.

Except Antique Roadshow ruined it for all of us!

Anyone here know the time of year that companies most likely donate in order to benefit re: their tax write-offs? 

'More or less', 'Right or wrong', 'In general', and 'Just thinking out loud ' (as usual).

It is more visually appealing to have the store olor coded in addition most ppl know what color they are attracted to then you sort and select . Simple

I don't find that to be good at all. I'd rather look through the items available in my size to see if there is anything I like than wade through a ton of clothes in a color I like only to discover none are in my size so it was a complete waste of time.

I tend to do my second hand shopping at Value Village and they sort by size. My favorite find so far was an old Burberry trench coat. It was a bit musty smelling, but very cool!

I think our preferences even for things like how stores are arranged show how we are all "wired" differently. What some love others dislike.
