Consign With Us
How to Consign:
You must schedule an appointment by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Emails will be replied within 36 hours. A representative will then contact you to set up an appointment. Consignment appointments usually take about 20 minutes--we inspect your item, discuss pricing, and fill out a contract. After that, you're done, and we do all of the work involved in selling your item to another happy person.
General criteria for consignment:
Please understand that bridal style is quite fickle, and a gown might meet the above criteria yet not be one that we think we'll be able to sell.
We strongly advise sending us a photo before your appointment, we'd be happy to give you information specific to your gown, and save you a trip in case your gown is not one we would be able to take. (Please note that no pricing is final until the gown has been physically inspected in our office.) Email us a photo at email@example.com
Pricing and Payments:
Once-worn and sample wedding gowns are usually priced at around 50% of their new retail. New, current wedding gowns in perfect condition are priced at higher percentages.
Age, size, condition, and style are all factored into the price of each gown, and we offer you honest advice on how much your dress is likely to sell for. It is very important to us to ensure a fair price for both the buyer and the seller.
We check our inventory the last Monday of each month (holidays will delay process). This is when we contact you if your item has sold. If it hasn't sold, we will not contact you. If we are unable to find another home for your item after the agreed upon time, 2 months, you can come back and pick it up.
Pick-ups and Donations:
If we reach the end of the contract, and we haven't found a new home for a gown, we'll arrange a time for you to pick it up. Or, if you prefer, you can always donate your dress to Brides With A Cause.
If you have any questions or concerns at any point in the consignment process, please ask!
Notes:* We add or subtract small amounts on the base price price to cover credit card fees, garment bags, repairs, or special discounts. The actual percentage the consignor receives of the final, actual sale price of the gown varies from 60% to 43%. To simplify life, we work from the "base price" on the contract so you always know exactly how much to expect, and so we can get checks out rapidly at the end of the month.
