We’re always accepting contemporary and vintage men’s & women’s apparel and accessories on trade or consignment. Here's how it works:
Bring in your stuff; men’s & women’s clothing, hats, bags, shoes, belts, ties, scarves, and jewelry (sterling, semi-precious stones, and costume jewelry only; we don’t deal in precious stones, gold, platinum, or other types of fine jewelry. For that, you might try our friends up the street at Renaissance). All clothing items must be clean and in excellent condition. Please check all items for flaws beforehand; missing buttons, broken zippers, excessive wear, missing belts, stains, etc.
Selling on consignment:
Consignment items must be current-season. Our consignment period is 60 days. The consignor receives 40% of the price for items sold. Consignment credit may be taken as payment by check, or used as store credit, or as a combination of both. You’ll be issued a consignment agreement listing the items we take, and their prices.
Trading for store credit:
Trade items may be either current or off-season. A combined flat-rate credit is issued on the spot, subject to management availability. Trade credit may only be used for in-store purchases, never converts to cash or check payment, and never expires.
Do I need an appointment?
Nope. Come in anytime during business hours, we’re open every day (closed on major holidays). If we’re especially busy, you may be subject to a wait.
What kinds of items do you take?
We know what our customers want, and we must be selective. We also love vintage, but nothing pre-1920s. Vintage dresses and vintage men’s shirts, 1940s-1980s, sell well. We look for style, quality, and label. Some styles, colors, sizes, and brands don’t sell as well for us as others. Same is true with vintage. We make our choices carefully and select items based only on what sells best for us, our current stock, the standards our customers expect, and our experience over two decades in business. Some of the labels that sell best for us:
3 Dots, 7 Jeans, Aldo, all Anthropologie labels, Alternative Apparel, American Apparel, American Eagle, Ann Demeulemeester, Ann Taylor, Anna Sui, Asos, Athleta, Aventura, Bailey 44, Banana Republic, Barbour, BB Dakota, BC Footwear, BCBG, BDG, Bebe, Betsey Johnson, Billabong, Birkenstocks, Blowfish, Boden, C&C California, Citizens of Humanity, Club Monaco, Coach, Converse, Current/Elliott, DaNang, Dansko, David Kahn, Deletta, Derek Lam, Diane VonFurstenberg, Diesel, Dolce Vita, Dr. Martens, Dries van Noten, Eileen Fisher, El Naturalista, Elizabeth & James, Ella Moss, Emilio Pucci, EMS, Express, Filson, Fossil, Free People, French Connection, Frye, GAP, Garnet Hill, Gucci, H&M, Helmut Lang, Ibex, J.

Also keep in mind that on-trend, lower cost items from stores like Forever 21, H&M, and Charlotte Russe, are fine as long as they are in like-new condition.
Does everything I bring in for consignment have to be brand name?
No. Everything has to be clean, in excellent shape, of good quality, and a style we can sell. That goes for both contemporary and vintage. If you’re unsure about an item, bring it in. Shoes need to be in nearly-new shape. We do not accept anything stained, missing buttons, or in need of repair, and ultimately we select items based on how quickly we believe they will sell.
What happens to my items if they don’t sell?
You have the option of either collecting or donating your unsold items. Unsold items must be collected within three days of your contract expiration date.
Are there items you won't take?
We don't accept children's clothing (try our friends at Whippersnappers), lingerie/loungewear, or anything from big box discount chains.
