to Consign Clothing
Welcome to the world of clothing consignment! Consigning is one
more way to recycle what you dont want or needhelping
yourself, others, and the planet all at the same time. Best of
all, consignment allows you to recover a portion of an items
value when someone else finds it worthy of purchase. You get cash,
the buyer gets a good deal, and the planet gets more breathing
room. Hows that for a win-win-win!!!
So how do you
get started? The first step is to pull out all in-season
items that you no longer want or need. (You can determine in-season
by asking yourself if you would purchase the item to wear
within the next 90 days.) When you have the items pulled, compare
them to the criteria listed below.
ACCEPT clothing that is:
excellent condition (shoes must be near mint)
size and care tags
pressed, and on hangers
0-22 (XS to 2X)
(at the stores discretion)
DO NOT ACCEPT:
from Target, Walmart,
labels from department/specialty stores
Once you have
qualified your items, you can call the store to set up a time
to bring your things in. Please be prepared to tell us how many
items you have. We will review your items and accept those that
we think will sell in our market. After you sign a consignment
agreement, we will assign you a consignor number and give you
a receipt for the items we have accepted.
Below is a brief
overview of our consignment terms:
The store sets the initial selling price for all items. Our goal
is to help you get the best return possible in our market area.
However, to increase the likelihood of a sale, the store reserves
the right to adjust selling prices at any time during the consignment
period, e.g., during sale events.
Period: 90 days.
Split: 50% store credit or 40% cash to consignor.
Payout: Payment for items sold will be cashed out upon request,
either by cash or check at the stores discretion. If you
prefer to have your check mailed (minimum $10.00), you may either
1) leave a self-addressed, stamped envelope or 2) agree to a $1.00
deduction from your payout to cover supply and mailing expenses.
If you would like your unsold items back, you may pick them up
anytime during the last two weeks of the consignment period.
Items that have not been reclaimed by the end of the consignment
period will be considered abandoned by you and will become the
property of the store.
