Do I need an appointment to bring in my items?
IF YOU ARE NEW TO CONSIGNING, Yes you do! Please call and make an appointment. We do NOT accept drop ins of more than 30 items without an appointment.
If you have 30 or less you may drop in IF YOU ALREADY CONSIGN WITH US, however we do recommend you call first, to see what the wait time is like.
Appointments can be made during regular business hours TUESDAY - SATURDAY
Seasonal dates for consignments are:
FALL & WINTER = March to July. We still accept F/W clothing brought in after September. Right now we are processing items within 2 weeks.
SPRING & SUMMER = September to November & January to June.
We WILL accept clothing after these seasonal dates. We have 2 major sales a year for 4 days, and all items, no matter when they go on the sales floor, will go on sale, so getting your items in early for each season is best.
Depending on the amount of drop off's, it may take a few weeks to process your clothing.
