Below are answers to frequently asked questions by new consignors:
1. What types of items do you consign?
From a neo-vintage standpoint (last 10 years), we focus on brands you would find on Rodeo Drive, such as Chanel, Prada, Gucci, Chloe, McQueen, Balmain, Balenciaga, Louboutin, Saint Laurent and Hermes. Handbags, shoes and dresses are our best-sellers. We specialize in collectible pieces and fashion-forward brands.
From a vintage perspective, we focus on fabulous looks and accessories through the eras of the 1930s to the 1990s. This ranges from red carpet looks to funky streetwear. Designers we consign include YSL, Gucci, Pucci, Galliano, Versace, Zandra Rhodes, Biba, Chanel, Missoni, Hermes, Halston and Ossie Clark, among others.
2. What is the consignor split from proceeds? How I am paid?
Our normal consignment split is 50/50. As of October 21, 2021, we offer you (the consignor) 70% on ALL Chanel pieces. All handbags are a 50/50 split with the exception of Hermes and Chanel, which receive a 70/30 split and Louis Vuitton which receive a 60/40 split in favor of the consignor. Accounting is completed monthly and payouts are remitted by check domestically and wire transfer internationally.
3. How long do you keep items? And how do you set prices?
The consignment period lasts for 90 days. We may keep vintage and/or other special pieces for a longer period. Our consignors look to us for expertise in fair market resale pricing based on period, condition, designer, scarcity and other factors.
4. How do you sell your items?
Along with our flagship boutique, we offer our items for sale through web platforms (website, Instagram, 1st Dibs) as well as our nationwide trunk shows.
5. How do I know if something sold?
It is the consignor's responsibility to check in on their account monthly by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org for account status.
