Spring 2020

**Very Important Notes:

  • Item Limits: 250 total items per consignor! If you would like to bring more items, you can register for another consignor number (will need to pay Registration Fee for each consignor number). Category limits:
    • 25 Womens Clothing
    • 15 Mens Clothing

    • 25 Home Decor (tags - can bundle several pieces together with one tag)
    • 15 Kitchen (tags - can bundle several pieces together with one tag)
  • Due to space constraints, we are strictly limiting the brands of clothing we accept (see list below)
  • Any item that is purchased but returned by a shopper due to defect or missing pieces will be refunded and redacted from consignors sales; consignor will also be charged a $20 defect fee. We want our shoppers to know that they can trust us!
  • No Maternity
  • No Breast Pumps/Accessories
  • No Baby Bath Tubs
  • No CDs
  • Picture frames - please keep in mind "style"; picture frames are a hard sell in general, so make sure you bring your BEST
  • Glassware - complete sets only
  • Tchotchkes - those small decorative items, often quite fragile - remember that for the same reasons you are parting with it, most shoppers will not want to purchase it. Be selective and bring your best!
  • Home Decor: the most important tip I can give you: KEEP CURRENT! Ask yourself "Is this Chip & Joanna approved?". Our shoppers LOVE patriotic, shabby chic, farmhouse, minimalist, updated items. According to our sales statistics, they are not loving brass, glassware, outdated, and incomplete sets.
  • As always, owner discretion will be used for final decisions on accepted/unaccepted items.

General Information:

  • All items must be spring or summer items! Please no corduroy, coats, or heavy clothing that would be more suitable for cooler weather.  We will accept school uniform pants, jeans, and lightweight jackets, though they may be held in the back until floor space opens up during sale week. Spring/Summer decor is accepted.
  • All items must be in good shape! No stains, tears, rips, broken zippers, missing buttons, odors, or other flaws. Items will be inspected after they are placed on the sales floor. Unaccepted items will be be available for consignors to pick up.
  • All items must be current! Check the styles, the fabrics, the cut. Remember that shoppers are looking for items that are stylish, not out-dated. If you have a middle-schooler, please don’t consign the clothes they wore as a toddler!

Children’s Specialty Items:

  • there is a big demand for high-end names and trunk show brands. The resale value is very good on these items. We will have a special “Boutique” section for those items. View our “Boutique” list by clicking on the link to the left.

Monogrammed Clothing:

  • we will accept monogrammed clothing with one initial or name; no 3 initial monogrammed items please.

Adult Clothing/Shoes/Accessories:

  • Due to space limitations, we have very strict guidelines for Adult Clothing. Please bring only your VERY BEST pieces!
  • All adult clothing MUST be less than 5 years old.  Inside the tag of Gap, Old Navy, J Crew, Banana Republic, and some others, you will find the date of manufacture.  If there is no date, please use your very best judgement.  Final decisions will be made by our inspectors.
  • Consignors are limited to 25 Women's Clothing Items and 15 Men's Clothing Items. This is entirely due to space, and to encourage consignors to bring their BEST items!
  • Also due to space constraints, our team has decided to limit the accepted brands for mens and womens clothing. All items still MUST meet the guidelines above in terms of condition (like-new) and age (less than 5 years old).
