Consignment – How It Works

Not all consignments includes clothes that have been worn. Many of the items we sell are brand new! Many of our items are from bridal stores, or individuals who simply have an overstock of great looking clothes. We can sell your shopping mistakes.

Is your closet full of items you no longer wear? Or have never worn? Got a gorgeous dress sitting around you’ve only worn once or twice? Did you buy a pair of shoes that fit better in the store? Is the color all wrong?

Well, the Resale Boutique can help turn those unloved items into CASH!

All you need to do is make an appointment, bring your items in and we’ll inventory them, tag them, hang them, and sell them. It’s a great way to clean out your closet and make a little extra cash at the same time.

Formals and bridals are accepted all year round. Casual and career wear is accepted according to season. Winter items are accepted September through February. March through June we accept summer attire. You can also shop where your dollars make sense!

Consignment at the Resale Boutique is by appointment only. Before calling to make an appointment, take a look at your items carefully.

Your consignment goodies should be….

  • in the best condition
  • still stylish, or bought in the last two years
  • clean and freshly laundered or pressed, crisp
  • odor free
  • hanging on hangers, wrinkle free
  • in season
  • still have tags and all buttons and seams intact

We do NOT take items that are not in season, look too worn, have not been cleaned, or are wrinkled. Please do not be offended if we decide to pass on your items. We will only take what we think we can sell to our customers, and they are a choosy bunch!

We will set the prices on your items based on our experience and expertise on what similar items sell for, and you will receive 40% of the selling price. The service fee is a yearly charge of $18 from Sept 1 to Sept 1.

Clothes and accessories are put on consignment for 60 days. If your items don’t sell within that time period, they will be donated to a local charity. We do not return items. You may call at the end of the 60 day period to see which, if any of your items have sold. Tax evaluations will be sent to you for your donation.

Bridal and formal gowns are put on consignment for 1 year. If the gown does not sell within that year, you have the option of re-consigning for the following year or donating the gown.

Go ahead and de-clutter that closet and give us a call for a consignment appointment- we look forward to doing business with you!
