Do I need to make an appointment to sell or consign?
We do suggest making an appointment over phone or email if you are unsure about the brands and items we take or just have a few items.
Do you only consign, or do you buy items as well?
90% of the time we use the consignment method, but we can do a straight buy if you have just a few pieces (which requires setting up an appointment). We do not buy high-end handbags that retail over about $500.
How do you set pricing?
We research every piece before we list it to determine the going rate for the item including the condition and age of the garment. We generally set pricing at about 50% of the original retail price, and items with tags attached or from the current season will be set at a higher price. Handbags and jewelry are also often set at a higher price-generally 50-70% of the original retail price. We are often able to price the items that are selling on consignment higher than if we were to do a straight buy, which in this case we will price with some wiggle room since we will be taking more of a risk and putting the item for sale.
Where do you get your items?
About 50% of our inventory comes from some amazing women's closets all around Los Angeles that we have been cleaning out since 2012. Through word of mouth we are lucky enough to a rolodex of loyal clients with great style that in most cases have barely worn most of their items. The other 50% comes from walk-in clients to our physical locations.
Do you ever reduce prices?
It depends on the item. Normally we will reduce the price about 20% every month if the item has not gotten much interest.
How long do you keep the items?
Depending on the brands and some other factors, we try to sell the item for at least 4 months but we will keep items for longer in some cases.
