Consignment Acceptance Guidelines

 


Please use these guidelines as a way to ensure the most amount of money for your consignments. A little time and effort caring for your items before drop off makes a big difference in the sales price. The better the appearance of your consignments, the more money you make!


1.  Clothing should be delivered clean, pressed and laid flat- never folded. Clothing will be limited to one large laundry basket per drop off. Place all like categories together: girls, boys, teens, womens, and mens.  Whole category stacks may be folded in half once as a bundle. You will transfer your items into our baskets upon check in.  

2.  Clothing needs to look new or nearly new. Clothing showing signs of excessive washing (color fade, pilling,etc.) or excessive wear will not be accepted. Please check clothing for any underarm stains, ring around the collar, grease stains, and worn cuffs on sleeves or neck collar. Please check the seams of all garments and the crotch area of pants for flaws.  Ensure all buttons and zippers are functional.

3.  All original brand and size tags must be attached. Homemade and altered items will not be accepted in most cases.

4.  Clothing needs to be less than three years old and in current style. 

5. Shoes must be freshly washed or polished and have completely clean soles.

6. Purses must be clean and polished if needed. All liners need to be pulled inside out and lint rolled. Fabric purses of any kind with stains will not be accepted. 

7. All other categories of  items MUST BE COMPLETELY CLEAN AND IN NEW OR LIKE NEW CONDITION, have all of their parts including batteries, light bulbs, chargers, etc if needed for operation.

8.  All items must be free of smoke, pet odors, pet hair and mustiness


After you have inspected your items we will do our best to find any missed flaws during processing, but occasionally something is overlooked. If a piece is found unacceptable to sell after the check-in process it will not be returned, but automatically donated.  So please, inspect high value items carefully!

We look forward to helping you turn your consignments into cash!
