-- 60% of the selling price for items that sell for $50.01-$500

-- 70% of the selling price for items that sell for $500.01-$1000

Pricing Items

You are welcome to suggest a reasonable selling price for your item at the time of dropoff based on age, condition and current market value.  Ultimately we are happy to price your item(s) based on how much we have sold similar items for in the past. We generally start off at about 50% off of retail unless they are very new and in high demand, or very old/used and in low demand. 

 

Important Details

-- Items are subject to a DISCOUNT of 25% if unsold after 30 days, and further discounts after 60 days.

-- Seasonal items may be subject to END OF SEASON SALES; you will get an email about this. Contact us if you don’t want your items included.

-- After 180 days OR the end of season date for seasonal items (April 15 and September 15) you will have 1 week to collect any unsold items or they will become the property of the store. Some exceptions can be made.

-- Once priced, items must REMAIN in the store for 30 days before you can take them back, if unsold.

-- You are welcome to PROVIDE a list with suggested selling prices but ultimately the store determines the selling price.

-- Some SEASON-SPECIFIC ITEMS may have shorter terms if they are dropped off at the end of the season. These will be discussed on an item- by- item basis.

-- A CONSIGNMENT AGREEMENT with the most recent terms will be available to sign before consigning your items.

-- Terms are subject to CHANGE.

-- A COPY OF YOUR CONTRACT with the information outlined above can be downloaded here. You must fill one out upon dropping off your first items for consignment.  

 

Seasonal Shifts

We are a small shop and do our best to keep our inventory appropriate for the current season.  We look for quality winter goods and gear September through March while we take summer goods April through August. Although we may take seasonal items at other times of the year expect us to be much more selective. Some items are multi-seasonal.

 

Trade/Purchase Outright

We do not offer trades or outright purchase of any items at any time.
