How to Consign Your Items
Benefits of Consigning
In your closet you most likely have clothes, shoes, purses and jewelry that don't fit quite right. Maybe you bought them on impulse, they were given to you as a gift, or you just plain never have a chance to wear them. By selling your gently used items on consignment, you earn cash AND clear space in your closet for things you LOVE to wear!
When to Bring Your Seasonal Clothing In
Fall Items: end of August - October
Winter Items: October - early February
Spring Items: end of January- April
Summer Items: May - July
Choose Your Items
Brand name clothing including Liz Claiborne, Jones of New York, Ann Taylor, Talbot’s, Gap, Limited, Tommy, Banana Republic, Petit Sophisticate, Buckle, Abercrombie & Fitch, Lucky, Chico’s, Polo, Levis, J.Jill, Eddie Bauer, American Eagle, and Hollister sells well. Regular brands from other stores are also very in-demand as long as they are in good condition and in style.* The store reserves the right to refuse any or all items that are “out-of-season”, stained, soiled, torn, missing buttons, out of style, or improperly presented.
Prepare Your Items for Consignment Sale
All clothing must be freshly washed and ironed, free of stains and put on hangers. Jeans, pants and shorts can be folded over hangers. All clothing should be in season and in current style.
Remember: The better your items look, the faster they will sell, and the more money you will get for them!
Bring Your Items to the Store
First Time Consignors please make an appointment. We look through clients items on a first come, first served basis. If you can’t stay while this is done, you are welcome to drop the items off as long as your account is already set up.
To set up an account you will need to fill out a form and pay a one-time fee of $5.00 to help defray the cost of advertising.
When Your Clothing Has Sold
When an item of yours is sold, you receive 40% of the selling price. Stop in any time to pick up your cash or check. Kim’s Classic Closet sets the selling price and promises to get the best price possible for your gently used consignment items.
