How to Consign
- Clean your items and bring them to the shop.
We can not accept gear that is dirty and clothing that has not been recently laundered.
Learn more about the items we do and do not accept below...
- Fill out a consignor agreement and agree on a selling price.
We will work with you to determine a selling price based on age, condition and original retail value.
Our rates are as follows:
$1 – $99.99 = 50% of the proceeds to you
$100 – $249.99 = 60% of the proceeds to you
$250 – $499.99 = 70% of the proceeds to you
$500 and up: = 80% of the proceeds to you
You can earn an extra 20% if you use your proceeds as in-store credit
Once your items sell you will have the opportunity to get paid in the form of a check or you get an additional 20% if you use that money as store credit.
- We ask that items stay in the store for at least 30 days. If you would like to remove an item before that 30 day period a 20% fee will be assessed
- We do not negotiate on sale prices but do hold bi-annual seasonal sales and will periodically mark down old inventory
- We print out checks on demand. We only ask that you do not collect more than one check in a 30 day period
