We now price your items for you. Please see important details.

1. We will now price all items that are dropped off.

To help our consignors earn as much as possible for their items and to make the consigning process easier, we will now price and tag your items for you.

We set these prices based on both our own pricing data that we have collected during the past couple of months and sales data that is available from online marketplaces. It is our goal to help our consignors get the full amount that their item is worth, so please be assured that we will price your items with careful consideration.

As a consignor, if you ever have concerns about pricing for a specific item, we are happy to take time to chat with you about pricing when items are dropped off.

Consignors had the choice to have us transfer their items to our new location and pricing system or pick up their items at the end of September.  Any consignor that did not reply to us before this move had their items stored instead of moved.  If you fall into this category, please contact us right away so that we can either get your items back to you or put back out for sale.

2. Our new pricing system automatically reduces the price of items that have not sold.

If an item does not sell, the price will automatically be reduced by 25% of the original price after 30, 60, and 90 days.  These discounts are shown on the tag along with the date that they will be discounted.

Items can now stay in the store for up to 120 days.

Items can now stay in the store for up to 120 days.  Items cannot be picked up before this time period once they are dropped off.

If we accept an item and later realize that it does not meet our selling requirements, it needs to be picked up immediately

As we have a smaller space available, if we accept an item and later realize that it does not meet our selling requirements, it needs to be picked up immediately. Consignors will be contacted to pick up the item(s) within seven days. Consignors can also choose to donate the item to a nonprofit.  If the item is not picked up, it will be donated to a nonprofit.

No more handmade tags or hanger requirements
From now on, there is no need to hang or tag your items. We now handle all that for you! Simply register as a consignor, make sure your clothing is in good condition, and schedule a time to drop it off.
We will no longer be having monthly clearance sales on a regular basis because items automatically go on sale after 30 days.

As items will now be automatically discounted if they stay in the store for more than 30 days, we will no longer be hosting our monthly clearance sales.  However, we may still host them on occasion for items that have been in the store longer than 30 days.  Please follow us on social media and join our email list to be notified of these sales.

We will be changing our list of items that we accept, including jewelry.

Our new space is smaller, so we have to be more selective about the items that we accept. We have chosen to no longer carry some of these items due to low demand. We will make a few exceptions for special items, but please reach out to us first. See the What We Accept page for full details, but here is a brief summary of updates:

• We will now accept accessories and jewelry. However, we ask that you do not bring us high-end jewelry that we do not have the skills to authenticate.

• We will no longer accept wedding dresses, pantsuits, skirtsuits, button-up or button-down shirts with collars, blazers, shoes, or dress jackets.

Exceptions are occasionally made for the following brands: Torrid, Lane Bryant, Catherine’s, Hot Topic, Maurice’s, and Shein. If you aren’t sure, please contact us.
