The following information will guide you through the consignment process and outline our store policy. Our Consigner Agreement is located at the bottom of the page.

B. Clothing must be in current style and no more than 3-5 years old.
Please check for: Working Zippers, Holes, Tears, Stains, Pilling, or Signs of Wear.
The better it looks, the faster it will sell. Please inspect your items before bringing or sending them in. We may decline items based on age and condition. Because we offer quality, high-end merchandise, we are very selective and will only choose items we believe we can sell.
We accept new and pre-owned women’s clothing in any season. However, for the best return on seasonal items, you may wish to wait for the appropriate season.
