Frequently Asked Questions
What is a Consignment Store?
A consignment store is one where the clothing is sourced from the community. As families clothing needs change they bring their clothes to me to be resold on consignment. When the clothes are sold I keep 50% of the price and the consignee earns 50%. The clothing remains the owners property for 12 months. After this you have the choice to take back your clothes or give to me and I will sell them for half price or donate them to a charity.
How do I become a Consignee?
Prepare the clothes you wish to sell by washing thoroughly to remove any stains and odors. Call me on 0499 437 792 to make an appointment to bring your clothes to the store. Together we will view the clothes and discuss which garments are suitable. Fill out a form with your details, this includes name, address, phone, email and bank details.
How does Payment work?
Immediately after selling clothes I forward you the consignment payment to your nominated bank account.
