Here’s how it works:
First time consignors need to schedule an appointment to open an account. Use the contact us form below to email your request to set up an appointment. Appointments are typically scheduled between the hours of 10:00am and 6:00pm EST.
Getting ready for your first visit:
Select a minimum of 3 items and no more than 20 in new or like-new condition.
We require all garments to be dry cleaned and/or freshly laundered and pressed on hangers. Items should be free of odors-perfume, smoke, moth balls and pet hair.
Check for broken zippers, missing buttons, torn hems, spots and stains. (These are examples of how items will be declined for consignment).
We accept and sell a wide range of brands, from designer and boutique to better mall labels, to moderate labels. All sizes ranging 0-24.
When consigning designer and high-end items we accept authentic ONLY! All authentic items must come with documentation and original packaging when possible.
Terms of the Consignment contract:
The consignment period is 6o days.
The proceeds of the sale is split 40/60 (40% of the selling price to consignor/60% to store).
What is Consignment?
Consignment is an agreement to pay a supplier of goods a percentage of the sale after the goods have sold.
Is there a difference between Thrift and Consignment?
A Thrift store generally accepts items by donation and will not pay the supplier. The proceeds are forwarded to a charitable organization.
A consignment store generally choose the items and will pay the supplier a percentage once the item is sold.
Do we buy clothing outright?
What items do you accept?
Women’s clothing, purses, shoes, jewelry and accessories. Please no household items.
Will you accept my replica items?
Are there brands or labels you don’t accept?
We are not brand specific. As long as the item is in like new condition. However, we do reserve the right to choose what is sold.
How long is the consignment period?
The consignment period is 60 days.
What happens to the things that don’t sell?
When signing the contract you will have one of two choices. You can have the unsold items returned to you or you can donate them to become property of Clever Diva to be liquidated or donated further.
What if I change my mind about consigning an item?
Email us using the contact us at the bottom of this web page. Anytime an item is still under consignment and the item has not sold, we will arrange for you to pick it up.
Who determines the price?
All prices are set by Clever Diva. We price items at about a third to a quarter of the original retail price. Brand new items with the retailer’s original tags, are priced at approximately half of the original retail price.
How do you know how much to charge for my consigned items?
All pricing takes into consideration the competitive market. We research in depth each label and add that information to a database that is constantly updated. Keep in mind; we are looking to sell that item so Clever Diva’s prices must be more attractive than the retail stores in order to sell your items.
How do I get paid?
When an item sells, your account is immediately credited with the sale. Checks are processed at the end of the consignment period for all sales over $25.00. Amounts less than $25.00 will be held on account for further consignment consideration or it can be used as a store credit.
Can I drop off items for consignment at any time?
CONSIGNERS NEED AN APPOINTMENT!!!
Why the 20 piece limit per drop-off?
This amount assists us in getting your items processed quickly and out on the floor where the shoppers can purchase them.
We love our customers, so feel free to visit during normal business hours.
