When you think of consigning, "THINK GREEN!" You're making a little extra cash while keeping the environment clean!
Our closets are full of items that, for whatever reason, we no longer wear. Maybe we lost weight or bought on impulse a little too often or inherited a closet full of clothes and fashions that you don’t know what to do with. Your quality castoffs whether it’s designer brands, vintage, modern or high fashion can be turned into extra cash, so take inventory, then head to The Ladies Room and together we both can make a little extra cash.
Tips on How and Why to Consign
While searching through your closet have you ever thought:
"It's a beautiful garment and I love it, BUT..."
If the answer is:
1. It will never fit me again
2. It's just not my color
3. My lifestyle has changed and I'll never wear it again
4. I've had it for awhile and the tags are still on it
5. It was an impulse buy and just isn't me
6. OMG, I inherited all this, where do I began?
Here's how it works.........
Unlike most consignment shops, the age and brand of the garment doesn't matter. We are looking for trendy, cute and seasonal fashions. We offer a 50/50 consignment split on a 60/90 day contract on up to 15 items. After 60/90 days, you can have us to donate the unsold items or you are welcome to pick them up.
When you bring something in to consign, we will select the items that we think our customers would want to buy. Sometimes there will be items we cannot sell. Please understand that our customers' preferences must be our selection guide. We base prices on supply and demand. We will get the best possible price for you.
All items must be brought in Clean and on hangars – we will not accept anything in bags and or wrinkled.If you bring clothes in on your better hangars, no worries, you can get them back before you leave. You are limited to 15 items per appointment. When you fill out your contract, you will be responsible for writing down the brand name, a brief description and original amount of each item. Later that day, we will fill in the selling price then email you a copy. Please note that the selling price will not necessary be the final price as we do have promotions from time to time.
It is the responsibility of the consignor to follow up with her/his consignment at the end of the 60/90 day contract.
