you think you might like to consign with us, please call us for
a time to review your line. Kindly keep in mind that if we accept
your art, we expect you to have at least 6-12 items (depending
on your craft) ready to go so we can make a reasonable presentation
within the store.
is a brief overview of our consignment terms:
The consignor and the store establish a mutually agreed upon price
for all items. Four variables should be factored into pricing:
the cost to make the item; the desired profit margin; the stores
percentage; and, most importantly, the customer-perceived value
of the item. PLEASE NOTE: If you participate in shows, you may
wish to maintain your current pricing by looking at the stores
percentage (which you only pay when something sells) as a substitute
for the cost(s) of purchasing and staffing a booth (which you
pay up front).
The store determines the location and type of display for all
gift lines. However, each artisan is welcome to provide fixturing
Rotation: My Girlfriends Closet has an extremely loyal
clientele, many of whom visit the store regularly. Therefore,
it is important that all artisans be prepared to check/replenish
stock levels and rotate their inventory at least quarterly
(more often if sales warrant).
Period: There is no set consignment period. Typically, the
store will show an artisans line for at least three months.
However, either the store or the consignor may terminate the consignment
agreement at any time.
Split: 70% to the consignor, 30% to the store.
Payment: Consignors are mailed a check (minimum $10.00) by
the fifth of each month for items sold the previous month.
Gift items must be exclusive to the store within the Town of Paradise.

a consignor number and asked to sign a consignment agreement that
fully sets forth all terms and conditions. The store will feature
