Consign

Interested in consigning with us?

If you’re local to Portland, feel free to drop off your items, we are open everyday 11-6.

If you are not local and would rather ship your items,  make a list of the items you would like to sell and email it to us. We will get back to you as soon as possible letting you know what you should ship. We’ll also send you shipping instructions along with a pre-paid label for your package. That means absolutely no out-of-pocket cost for you!

Here are some guidelines to help as you prepare your items for sale:

Merchandise must be:
* New or gently worn designer brands
* Current styles that fit our niche market
* In immaculate condition (no rips, tears or stains)
* 100% Authentic & Genuine

If you aren’t sure if we take certain designers check out our favorite brands list or contact us for clarification.

We generally do not accept any items by the following designers:
Forever 21, Banana Republic, Gap, Abercrombie, LOFT Ann Taylor, Jones New York, Polo, Coldwater Creek, Anne Klein, Liz Claiborne, Chico’s, etc.

We will double check everything when we receive the items, and will not sell or consign any items that are not in acceptable condition. Items that do not meet these requirements or go unsold will be returned at the consignors expense, or can be donated if you wish.

Drop it off or ship it:

Read through the Terms & Condition stated on the Consignment Contract and fill out the contract completely. We can not accept any consignments until it has been fully completed. Send or bring in a copy and keep one for yourself so you’ll have a record of the items you’ve consigned. Be sure to include the designer or brand name, a brief description (jeans, skirt, etc). If you have an idea of how much you originally purchased the item for, list that on the Inventory Sheet as well, otherwise leave that section blank.
