If you consign clothing here, make sure you read and understand the contract (look for loopholes, a.k.a. criteria for acceptable items). Make sure you bring a list of your items with you and ask them to initial it to verify the number of items you are leaving. Since you don't get an inventory of the items you leave at the store, you have no way of tracking your items, and neither do they. Out of 39 clothing/shoes items I left at the shop for consignment, 4 items were sold, 4 items remained on the racks, but my check only totaled $20. What happened to the other 31 items? They couldn't tell me. My record showed 4 entries, so it appeared that they sold 4 items. My clothing items were career apparel, in pristine condition, washed and ironed, and did not fit the contract's definition of "unacceptable." I very much doubt these clothes were donated.
When I pressed for an explanation of the check amount and the missing items, I was told "they must have been donated." The agreement is that you can pick up unsold items at the end of your consignment period, which I had planned to do. If you don't pick them up, they are donated. The warning bells sounded during my appointment for intaking my items; I had asked the lady to go through the items with me so I could take away the ones she didn't want. I was told to leave the clothes--that they would evaluate them later. At the time, this made me uncomfortable; however, I convinced myself that this was a business person, and I decided to trust her. Big Mistake. If you consign there, be smarter than I was and listen to the warning bells in your head if you don't want to be ripped off.
