How To Consign

We will be accepting Spring/Summer February 1. New consignors are welcome to fill out our New Consignor form.

The Clothes Secret has two take-in periods every year:
Spring and Summer – February 1 to April 15
Fall and Winter – August 1 to October 15

First-time consigners: Anyone interested in consigning with us will be asked to complete our New Consignors form online (please note the form will only be available when we are accepting new consignors). Once the form is completed the manager will determine whether your responses meet our criteria and will reach out to you with more information. Here are some things to keep in mind before filling out the form:

  1. We are a contemporary consignment store, meaning we do not accept items more than three years old.
  2. We do not accept bridal wear
  3. We do not accept items that are damaged in any way, so please take a moment to go through your items and make sure they are in good condition. 
  4. Due to limited space, we cannot accept items out of season, so please make sure the items you would like to bring in are appropriate for the season we are accepting for.
  5. It is difficult to sell items that have the labels cut out, so please keep this in mind as we may not accept items that have no distinguishable brand.
  6. If your responses on the form meet our criteria, you will be asked to email pictures of your items. Below are some examples of well taken pictures.

 

New Consignor Form

 

Existing consignors: Existing consignors may drop off items any time within our in-take periods. We recommend reviewing your consignor contract before dropping off as we update our policies frequently. If you no longer have your contract we can provide you with another copy. Clothing must be hung on individual hangers and kept together in a garment bag, accessories (shoes, bags, scarves, etc.) must be in a recyclable bag, and jewelry in individual Ziploc bags. If you require hangers or garment bags, or would prefer not to use your own, we will be happy to provide you with as many as you need prior to a drop off. The Clothes Secret does not return items that are not accepted for consignment, and will be donated to one of our charities. Due to the volume of consignors, we do not contact consignors to inform them that we have not accepted items. If you would like to know ahead of time if we would accept an item, you can email a photo of it to theclothessecret@gmail.com with the subject line “Existing Consignor Photos” with the corresponding season. Please note any account that has been inactive for over two years will be deleted.
