How does consignment work?
Consignment allows you to sell your gently used clothing in a boutique setting but removes the hassle – we take care of the pricing, marketing, and merchandising. We accept consignment on a walk-in first come, first serve basis during regular business hours. During busy times, there may be a short wait. If you have more than 20 items, we request you call ahead so we can schedule a time to look through your items when we have additional staff or during non-peak hours.
The Gather Team looks through the clothing and accepts the items we believe will sell in the shop. We price the items and put them out for sale for 60 days. For the items that sell, you receive 40% of the sales price in the form of a check or 50% of the sales price in the form of store credit. For items that do not sell, you may pick them up or we donate them to a local nonprofit.
Checks are cut monthly and may be picked up in the shop during normal business hours. Store credit does not expire.
If you would like to pick up your unsold clothing, please give us a call to let us know prior to the end of the 60 day consignment period. We will hold your clothing for you for up to one week.
Gather Resale is not responsible for items lost or damaged due to theft, fire, or flood.
Consigned items may be marked down up to 50% toward the end of the consignment period if the reduction will help sell the item.
What are we looking for?
We look for modern, contemporary women’s clothing (generally less than two years old), along with timeless classics by high quality brands in like-new or very gently used condition. Clothing should be clean and free of stains, fading, tears, and pilling. We love natural fabrics like cotton, linen, cashmere, silk and wool.
We select clothing based on seasonality. Because clothing is on consignment for up to 60 days, we stop buying for the current season about a month before it ends.
