CONSIGNMENT PROCESS:

We do not sort through your items on the spot. Processing time takes a few days. You will be asked if you would like to be called to collect items that are not accepted, or have those items sent to charity. 

Please bring your clean -  freshly laundered items in sturdy garbage bags. No hangers please!

We steam clean, price and our merchandising experts will beautifully display your items for the season.

At the end of each season, (approx 3 months after drop off) any clothes remaining on sales racks must be retrieved by customer or they will be sent to charity. (Customer must keep track of the time line for their own clothes).

If customer is notified that there are items to be retrieved after initial drop off, items must be picked up within 5 days of such notice or items will be sent to charity.

    • Items may be removed and sent to charity (within the 3 month timeline) by management discretion. This would be due to: the item having some sort of disrepair (stain, zipper broken etc) or lack of interest in the item(s) and space needed for new items.
