We are a consignment boutique, this means we sell new and gently used clothing, accessories, and footwear. By appointment, we select items, and then sell them on your behalf for a 50/50 split of the selling price. We do not buy items.
How to Consign With Us
1. Call to book an appointment with us.
We schedule half-hour appointment slots, Tuesday-Saturday.
*Consignors with currently ongoing accounts may call ahead to arrange a drop off date. Bring your sheet to add on and only 5 items can be looked at per drop off. Please be aware there may be a wait to process your items, and if you have more than 5 items make an appointment.
2. It is a 2 month contract.
It is a 50/50 split and The Clothes Tree decides the selling price.
If an item has not sold after the 1st month, it will be reduced by 25%.
You are responsible to get in touch with us regarding your account. Call us anytime.
You will get a customer number, and a copy of your items listed with prices.
24-hours notice is needed for a payout and pack-up on accounts. Request a payout on your sold items at anytime, give us a call.
Call us by the end (expiry) date on your contract, or within 5 days of expiry and we will pack-up your unsold items and have payment ready.
If we do not hear from you within 5 days of the expiry stated on the contract, your items will automatically be donated to charity. You can also choose to donate your unsold items at the end of the contract.
Payment is kept on file for 6 months past the contract expiry date.
