How Consignment Works

GO GREEN + SHOP RESALE

Help the environment while also vamping up your wardrobe. When you shop resale you help reduce energy, waste and emissions. We also offer the opportunity to make extra money on the clothes you no longer want through our consignment program.

OUT WITH THE OLD
+
IN WITH THE NEW

 Why not make an extra buck on that handbag that has been in the back of your closet for ages? Or those jeans you "promised" you would wear? 

Once your item sells at the Garment Exchange, you have the option of receiving 40% cash OR 50% store credit. Check out our Consignment Agreement below for more details.

FAQs

Q: Do we need an appointment to bring in consignment?
A: Appointments are not necessary but if it is your first time consigning with us or you have a large order, please call first to let us know when you plan to stop by. There may be times that you will need to leave your items for a day if we are busy when you drop off.  We take items Monday-Friday from 10-5:45 but if our drop off times/days do not work for you, please let us know and we will be happy to figure out another time. We do not take consignments on Saturday because it is our busiest sales day. 

Q: What quality should the items be in?
A: We are extremely picky about the items we consign. Please make sure they are name brands that work in our store, are clean, in good condition, and wrinkle-free. We won’t accept items with pet hair, stains, armpit discoloration, dirty, piling or holes. If you bring in dirty and stained clothes we might miss the items that are clean and brands we take. So take some time to go through your items first. We appreciate it. You can bring them on throw away hangers or neatly folded in a box, shopping bag or laundry basket. Please do not bring them in trash bags. 

Q: How do you price my items?
A: We price your items at approximately 1/3 of the retail price or a bit higher if the item is new with tags. Keep in mind that clothes are not an investment and we have a good idea of how much our customers will pay for resale items. We will send you an email with the item price once we have entered your items. If you see a problem with the price, let us know immediately. 

Q: What are you looking for now?
A: We’re looking for current, trendy, and classic styles for men, women, junior, and plus sizes. Be sure to look over our list below with some brands we take and don't take.

Jan-March  - Spring Clothing, Prom Dresses & Accessories

Q:What if I don't see my brands on the list below?
A: Give us a call or email with the brand names you have. We can let you know if they will work in our store. We have a certain amount of space and want to make sure we take the brands that will sell. We don't want to waste your time so we can usually guide you to the store where your brands will do better. 

Q:What if I have an item that might be good for your Ebay Store?
A: Glad you asked! We are a Top Seller on Ebay and would love to sell your items. Give us a call or email to find out if your item is worth selling on Ebay. You will receive 50% of the sale price after we take out the Ebay/Paypal fees which is about 13%. Check out our Ebay Store in the tab above to see some of the items we have listed now.

Q: What aren’t you looking for?
A: We don’t accept fashion jewelry, belts, scarfs, wedding dresses, women’s suits, men’s suits, men’s ties, men’s blazers, and men’s dress pants. We also don’t accept knockoff designer items. We take very little vintage since it doesn't sell well at our store.
