Frequently Asked Questions...
Do I need an appointment?
Appointments are required for new consignors. Existing consignors should make an appointment when you wish to ensure that someone will be available to inspect, accept and return your no's at the same time. Existing consignors may drop and run- see policy below.
Note: Not all of our staff is trained to accept consignment. Appointments are always taken before walk-ins. We accept appointments via phone & email or schedule it yourself online.
What are you taking right now?
We accept seasonally. Please check in with us if you are unclear on what colors or fabrications are appropriate for each season. We update the website frequently here with specific needs.
Is there a limit to the number of items you will accept?
No limit. Appointments are recommended if you have more then 25 items. Please schedule accordingly.
Can’t I just drop it off?
Existing consignors may bring in items and leave them for inspection based on staff availability. Please note: items that are not accepted will be donated after 3 days if you do not return to retrieve them. We just don’t have the storage to hang on to items.
Can I have you look over my stuff and then bring it back on hangers?
Sorry, no. We cannot give your items a fair assessment through all those wrinkles. Clothing must be clean, pressed and on hangers, ready to wear.
How do I know if my items sold?
You may call, email or stop in to check on your account at any time. You can also check the consignor login on the website here. Your password is your email address for the first login and then you change it.
What if my items don’t sell?
All items left unclaimed after your 60 day term will be liquidated or donated to charity. (Sorry, we have just too many consignors and items to call to remind everyone.)
How do I get paid?
All payments are handled at the store. Store credit is available at anytime. We pay cash for credits under $25. Credits over $25 are paid by check. We do not mail checks unless you make arrangements.
