Owner Abby McLucas has been reselling women's designer clothing on eBay for over 14 years. After success launching the Gift of Garb eBay store in 2012 she took the leap to retail in 2014 with the addition of an Eagle Rock outpost, and in April 2016 moved to its new Silverlake location.
We offer a hand selected collection of high-end designer labels and from recent seasons that reflect current trends for women today.
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 60% of our inventory comes from some amazing women's closets all around Los Angeles that we have been cleaning out personally for the last 4 years. 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 20% comes from walk-in clients at our Silverlake shop!
HOW LONG DO YOU KEEP THE ITEMS?
Depending on the brands and some other factors, we try to sell the item for about 90 days but we will keep items for longer in some cases.
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 DOES PAYMENT WORK?
For consignment accounts, we offer 65% back on any single item that sells over $1,000, then for the rest of the items we offer 50% back in trade or 40% in check. This percentage includes all shipping and handling, along with ebay, paypal, and processing fees. The check is usually cut at the end of your 90 days.
WHAT KIND OF ITEMS ARE YOU LOOKING FOR RIGHT NOW?
We buy by brand as opposed to season as we sell internationally on ebay. The brands we carry are lines that you would most likely find at a Barney's department store, so for instance Isabel Marant, Marni, Vince, Stella McCartney, The Row, Balenciaga, etc.
DO YOU BUY MEN'S CLOTHES?
We can take some men's brands on consignment depending on the brand. Call or email us with some examples of the brands you are looking to get rid of and we can tell you on the spot if they are brands we accept.
