Consignors - Sell Your Clothing

How to Consign

Take a look through the list to find some helpful information about us and what we do. If you don’t find the answer to your question here, just send us an e-mail or give us a call, we’re always happy to help!

At Fashion Attic, we have a 60 day consignment contract. As your items sell, you get 40% of the selling price. You can use this balance for store credit anytime after you sell something, or receive a check at the end of your consignment period.

You do need an appointment to consign. Just call the store during open hours to set one up! We take consignments on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays between 11:30 and 5:30.

We accept clothing in current seasons:

Fall: August 15 – October 15
Winter: October 15 – February 15
Spring: February 15 – May 15
Summer: May 15 – August 15

NOTE: Subject to change, please call to confirm actual dates.

What items are the best sellers?

While each season brings its own favorites, there are certain consistencies. Current brands and styles of jeans and casual tops are always popular. Items no older than two years old, with the exception of vintage. The key to an item’s popularity can vary, but the most current items from the trendier brands tend to dominate. Garment presentation is critical and all items sell best when clean and well cared for in excellent condition.

What brands and sizes are the most popular?

Banana Republic, Bebe, Guess, Ann Taylor, DKNY, BCBG, JCrew, Abercrombie, Polo Ralph Lauren, Gap, and higher end jeans like Mavi, Seven For All Mankind and Paper Denim & Cloth.

While we accept size 0 – XXXL, there is definitely a call for sizes 8 – 16 in ladies fashion!

My clothing is clean – I took it out of my closet – isn’t that good enough?

NO - Most of us think that we only hang clean, freshly laundered clothing in our closets…but the reality is there is usually something in there that is not clean! PLEASE LAUNDER ALL ITEMS the week that you bring them in…even if they were washed since you last wore them. This will eliminate household odors – present in everyone’s closets – freshen things up and result in probable acceptance and a quick sale. Also, please make sure items are free of all pet hair, rips, tears and make sure all buttons/enclosures are in place.

Who sets the prices?

At Fashion Attic we are aware of what is currently popular with our customers. We know the marketplace. What is in high demand, and what is not. Often what you paid the most for is not nearly as popular as an obscure item that you have little use for! If you have an item that you MUST get a certain amount of money for, we can talk price. Otherwise we set the prices. All prices are subject to change. Items go on the 50% off sale rack after 45 days.
