Most of us have more than we'll ever wear. These items take up valuable space. Take control and purge. It's healthy. Your stuff finds a new home and get's another chance. Whether we sell it or donate to various local charities, we help find a new new home for those things and help you declutter. However... The question is, do you qualify? It's harder than you think.
Do I qualify?
1.) Are you a shopper who updates your wardrobe on a regular consistent basis?
2.) Have you had a recent lifestyle change which eliminates the need for what you have and creates a new demand for what you need?
3.) Do you, like many, routinely buy too much that you really do not need but "it was on sale", "I thought I would lose weight", "I can always return it (but never do)", etc.
"Yes" to any of the above or similar circumstances puts you in a high likelihood of positive consignment probability.
Just keep in mind, Consignment Reality:
Consignment works best if it's volume based. No matter how stylish an item is, it's got a 50/50 shot at selling. Noone is going to pay off their student debt, car loan, rent or mortgage with the proceeds from consignment. Think of it as a wonderful way to purge and be unburdend. It can, however, add up over time and is a fun way to build future saving (via check) or spending (via store credit) in the store which is always fully stocked with new goodies arriving daily.
How would I not qualify (some examples)?
If you are looking to clear out a closet that hasn't been touched in several years, it's more than likely the contents may be out of date or style. Clothes that are stored deep within are also more likely to have issues such as odor, moth holes, age spots or discolorations that appear over time.
If you are clearing out a dresser full of old tees and slacks.
If your wardrobe mainly consists of mass produced, lesser priced, lesser quality pieces. In other words, if you spent very little on it new, it's likely not very consignable and may be better being directly donated to charity.
If deep within your closet you've found Career wear you haven't worn in years because you haven't worked in an office in several years.
You've discovered dusty shoes or tired handbags hiding under the bed.
If you tend to wear your clothes and then just hang them back in your closet without washing them.
Although, we sell a wide arrangement of styles and price points, not all merchandise is consignable. If your items are borderline and you consider the overall return, it may be best to DONATE them to your local charities.
Please Note: Only 1 in 5 folks who bring in merchandise are accepted on the first visit. The rest are sent home with specific instructions and an education in what makes something consignable vs. donatable.
