Tips on consigning

Get the Most for your treasures

1.  Wash/Clean your items before bringing them in

2.  Check the collars, cuffs, underarms, around the neck, & inside seam in pants.  If these areas of any item are not clean,  they will  not be accepted.  

3.  Make sure they are wrinkle free

4.  We look at the brands,  we only take items from brand stores, boutique stores, & premium labels.  

5.  Items from kohls, target, sears, jc penny, meijer, wallmart, costco, & kmart will be donated. 

6.  When going through your items,  ask yourself " is this item like new",  if its not,  we probably will not take it.  

7.  Check for pilling on sweaters

8.  We check for broken zippers & missing buttons on items

9.  Shoes have to be nearly new for us to take them.  We check for scuffs, worn heels & interior wear.   

Frequently asked questions????

How do i know what items were accepted? 

 Allow us up to 30 days to process your items,  when they are processed your items will show up on your inventory list online.  Keep checking back to view your inventory.  

How do you choose a price for my items?  

The price is based on the brand & the condition. 

The better the condition & quality,  the higher we can price the item.

We generally price your consigned items 40% to 60% lower than retail pricing

We also have to keep in mind the discount stores prices like Tj Maxx, Nordstrom Rack, Marshalls, etc....  & Outlet Malls 

We price items as high as we can with our shoppers still feeling like they are getting a good deal

Pre-owned items are only worth what someone is willing to pay!

Why cant i pick up the items you wont accept?  

We do not have the storage space to store items.  9 times out of 10,  we go through the trouble of bagging unwanted items, storing them, calling or emailing you to be told "oh,  just go ahead and donate it".  

Why can't i make an appointment for you to go through my things or why cant you just go through them right now and give them back to me?

We have a philosophy of "You make it easy for us & we will make it easy for you"...  This means come in whenever you want and drop off (easy for you)... We go through them in the mornings when its quiet & there is no distraction (easy for us).  Remember we do not charge a consignment fee.  You are welcome to take photos of your items and email them to us for review.  

I see in your contract unsold items will become property of The Resale Boutique & sold for store profit or donated? 

We believe in team work.  There are lots of fees & costs associated with running a business that is not thought about.  This is just a little something extra to help us to be able to keep our doors open for you to bring your items to consign.  We do not charge a yearly fee like most consignment shops.  

We can provide you a tax receipt upon request
