How Do I Consign?

How it works: 

 

Selling your clothes: You get 40% when an items sells and we keep your clothing online for a fixed time period. You can choose either the 8 or the 12-week option. If you choose the 8 week option, we notify you when you items expire and return them to you (this option is best for people who want their clothes back). For the 12 week option, your items become property of the store after they expire (this option is best for people who just want to get rid of their stuff). At the beginning of the consignment period we email you with a list of your items and the selling price. Your price list is representative of the selling price; we reserve the right to accept reasonable offers from buyers, place items "on sale," or offer promotions from time to time. Consigners are paid on the 1st and the 15th of each month either by Venmo or by check, depending on your preference. 

Picking up your clothes: We offer a White Glove pick up and drop off service to clients in the Seattle, Kirkland and Bellevue areas. Please contact us at info@clares-closet.com to make an appointment. (Please email me if you are outside of those areas and would like to consign.) All items must be clean with no pet hair, holes or stains. Please remember that online shoppers are trusting us to send clothes in “excellent used condition.” 

So what are we looking for? Fun, trendy items from your favorite brands. Think a cream Vince sweater paired with Current/Elliott skinny jeans, a unique Anthropologie print dress, or a form-fitting Kate Spade evening out dress. That 80’s suit with shoulder pads might be an excellent vintage find, but it’s just not what we’re about. We also try to avoid certain basics like plain black dress pants and plain t-shirts and tank tops - our customers are able to get these basics easily enough new - they come to a consignment store for more unique items or for deals on good brands. 

“Yes” brands: Anthropologie, Vince, Hudson, Current/Elliott, Joe’s Jeans, Tory Burch, Michael Kors, Diane Von Furstenberg, Johnny Was, Lilly Pulitzer, Kate Spade, Theory, Ann Taylor, Banana Republic, etc.

“No” brands: Forever21, H&M, Gap, Old Navy, Target, etc. (We just can’t be as competitive with the pricing.)

Thank you and we look forward to consigning with you!
