Clothing Consignment Policy
We accept consignments Monday-Thursday 10:00-3:30. Please no consignments on Fridays or Saturdays.
We are currently accepting Spring/Summer merchandise.
Clothing items need to be brought in on hangers or very neatly folded in shopping bags, 10 items per person per week. We don’t keep your hangers and please do not bring things in trash bags!!! You have an opportunity to switch hangers when you arrive with your clothing and take home your own hangers with you.
Please make sure your clothing is less than two years old, name brand, with no spots, stains, pulls, etc., and with the manufacturer’s name and size tag present. Post-COVID, we are favoring comfortable clothes, but we are also taking a few more dress-up things! Yay! Shoes, boots, and sandals, need to be new or nearly new with no visible footprint. We love vintage clothes, too!
Handbags must be clean inside and out, current styling, and for the season. Costume and/or fine jewelry must be clean, polished, untangled, and seasonal as well.
We price items according to what the market will bear. You receive 40% of what clothing, bags, and shoes sell for when priced by date. Clothing is consigned for 60 days total. Full Price for first 30 days, 40% off next 10 days, 60% off remainder days.
Furniture & Housewares Consignment Policy
For furniture consignments, we ask that we okay them before they come to the store, either by picture or appointment. We do not accept beds, rocking chairs, large armoires or dining sets. We generally don’t take couches over loveseat size. For housewares and collectibles, anything interesting is considered but all items need to be in excellent and complete condition. Please, no cut glass, floral vases, silver tableware or garage sale leftovers!!
For houseware and furniture consignments, you receive 50% of the selling price and they are consigned for 45-60 days with a 50% markdown after 35-45 days on the floor. All houseware and furniture consignments are subject to a 10% off discount at any time.
At the end of the consignment period, it is your responsibility to pick up any remaining items (we will have YOU look for them) or they become the property of Clara Ida Frances and will be donated or sold for charity. We will make a courtesy phone call when items are ready for pick up.
If you have a large number of items to sell or have any remaining questions, please call 903 342-6137 to speak to a real live human being!!
We look forward to working with you!
