Let us help you revitalize your wardrobe!
Is your closet stocked with fabulous luxury and designer apparel that you no longer wear? Consign your clothing, handbags, shoes and accessories to earn cash or trade for something new. Giving things a new life in our store and your closet is a simple and effective practice in sustainability. We know there are plenty of people who care about the world as much as they care about their wardrobe, which is why resale is so important to us!
Quick Start Guide for Consigning with Us
- Use our Appointment Calendar to schedule a drop-off, or give us a call to let us know when you plan on coming in.
- If you're new to consigning with us, fill out our Consignment Contract, visit our Favorites list to get an idea of what we're looking for. Read through this entire page to familiarize yourself with what we're looking for and how things work!
- Please make sure all items are freshly washed, free of damage, excessive wear. Bring your items in a bag you don't want back. Reusable, garbage, or paper bags are all great choices! No hangers please!
- Once your items have been processed, will email you with a price list for the items we took. You will then have the option to donate any unaccepted items or arrange a time to pick them up.
If you're not local, you can ship us your consignments for FREE! Just send your information and a brief list of the items you'd like to consign, and we can send you a consignor shipping kit. Contact us here
We will get back to you as soon as possible letting you know what you should ship. We'll also send you shipping instructions along with a pre-paid kit. That means absolutely no out-of-pocket cost for you! Make sure items are packed up safe and secure. We will insure your shipment, but can not be held responsible for damage due to poor packing.
Once we receive your items we will go through and select the items we will believe will sell. We will email you with price-list and let you know if there are items we did not accept.
Items are consigned for a period of approximately 120 days. During the period, monthly price reductions occur. At the end of the consignment period, or if we decide that we will not accept any of your items to sell, we will email you asking if you would prefer to pick them up or have us donate them for you.

What we're looking for:
Things that affect what we take in and how we price are primarily:
and to a lesser degree, Season and Inventory.
Please understand we can only buy what sells well for us. It's not personal!
You may have great clothes that simply don't sell well in our store and if we know of another outlet that might be better for you, we'll recommend it.
We look for items that are popular current trends from within the last 1-2 years along with select vintage. What's current may be a matter of cut and fabric or in some cases, brand. Style is often more important than brand; just because you have a high-end designer item doesn't mean it's something that sells well for us at this time.
Please pick the best of what you have.
Items should be freshly laundered and in like-new condition. If you bring in large amounts of dirty or damaged items or things we never buy such as used socks/underwear, we may reject your entire offer. If you are a smoker, please be aware that non-smokers are sensitive to the aroma and you must double check to make sure the items are free of any smell.
Our buyers go through hundreds of items a week - if you bring in a lot of visibly worn, dirty or inappropriate things, it is simply not worth it for us to dig through all of them. However, typical problems people miss are small holes or stains in the armpits, collars or crotch.
It does not matter if your items are "New With Tags" if they are out of style or if they simply don't sell well for us
We primarily buy based on brand. However, an older, out-of-style piece from a popular manufacturer of high-end designer won't sell well for us with few exceptions, mainly very specific vintage.
A few of our favorite brands are: Ace & Jig, Alexander Wang, Anthropologie, Adriano Goldschmied, Alice + Olivia, Burberry, Chloe, Current/Elliott, Chanel, Dolce & Gabbana, Frye, Ferragamo, Gucci, Icebreaker, Inhabit, Jimmy Choo, Kate Spade, Lululemon, Louis Vuitton, Marni, Missoni, Pendleton, Prairie Underground, Prada, Rag + Bone, Theory, Tom Ford, Velvet, Vince and so many more.
We also accept a limited number of mainstream brands such as: J. Crew, Madewell, Zara, etc.
We generally never accept items by the following brands: Forever 21, Banana Republic, Gap, Abercrombie, LOFT Ann Taylor, Jones New York, Polo, Old Navy, Coldwater Creek, Anne Klein, Liz Claiborne, Chico’s, etc.
SEASON AND INVENTORY:
We buy the best items for all seasons year 'round but we must also buy based on what we sell, which is affected by the season and what we have in stock. We are more selective with out-of-season merchandise, especially heavier winter items and formal wear.
Feel free to contact us if you have any additional questions!
