How We Price

We are happy to work with you on the pricing of your items. Generally 25-30% of the original retail price is a good place to start, but there are many factors involved in setting a price. Items that are new with tags, will be priced at 40% or a little better. You will receive a numbered Item Report that indicates the agreed upon starting price of each item placed on consignment. For dropped-off items, the Item Report is mailed or emailed to you.

We keep most items for two to three months. Some higher priced items are given more time. We may extend the consignment period for certain expired items if we believe there is a good chance they will sell at a clearance price.
