Here are a few things to remember as you are preparing your items to consign:

For Clothing and Accessories:

  • Clothing items should be neat, clean, pressed and on hangers, ready to go to the sales floor. Please review them for the following potential flaws:
  • Holes, stains, pilling, fading or other damage.
  • Missing buttons or fasteners, broken zippers
  • Shoes should be free of stains and marks on the inside and out, as well as checking handbags for money, wrappers or other things left behind.
  • Free of fragrance/odor
  • All watches and toys need batteries so we can see if they actually work.
  • Clothing in garbage bags will not be accepted (no exceptions)
  • All items must be authentic. If we are unable to verify the authenticity we will be unable to accept it. ( See Authenticity tab under Consign)

Household Items and Furniture:

  • Home decor and household items must be clean and ready for display with all pieces/parts attached and in working order
  • Small furniture items are accepted any day during our posted consignment hours
  • Large piece(s) of furniture or upholstery need prior approval. We must determine if it meets our guidelines and if we currently have space on the sales floor.

As a consignor, you have TWO DIFFERENT LOGINS for your account:

1) Consignor Login:  allows you to access your consignment balance

2) Appointment Scheduler Login:  allows you to schedule an appointment for consignment.  If this is your first time scheduling an appointment, you will need to register.  Again, this is not the same as your Consignor Login.
