Secondi

About

Dear Secondi shoppers and consignors,

First I want to thank you all for your continued support.  When you bring us your lovely items to sell, when you #ShopSmall from our selection, and when you drop us a kind comment on social media or leave us a glowing review, all of this is priceless to us.  YOU are the reason 35 years in business has been possible.  Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

We reopened to customers in June of 2020.  In consideration of our staff and customers who may not yet be fully vaccinated, we are requiring appropriate masks/face coverings for everyone who comes into the store.  We are also sanitizing surfaces and fitting rooms.  If you are visiting DC, please follow any current quarantine guidelines before visiting Secondi.  If you prefer to shop Secondi without a mask we invite you to shop our e-boutique and our Instagram and Facebook instead.  Follow us on Instagram, Facebook, and on our website for all updates!

Thank you for your understanding, your patience, your online business, and your compassion at this time.  We will all of us come back stronger from this experience–of this we have no doubt.

CONSIGNMENT FORMS

UPDATE!  We have been made aware that some consignors have had their mailed consignments returned to them as “Rejected” or “Unable to Deliver.”  We do not know why this is happening–rest assured we are open and accepting consignments–but we are working with USPS, UPS,  and FedEX to get to the bottom of this.  Whenever possible please use USPS or UPS to ship your consignments, and feel free to send us your tracking number(s) so we can know when to expect your package(s).  Thank  you for consigning with us!

Label Guidelines

These are rough guidelines; they are not set in stone. We have more success selling well-known and designer labels than we do with less expensive brands or junior labels (XOXO, Rampage, and Forever 21).

Our general rule is that if it’s hard for you to part with, it will probably sell well!

Yes! Yes! Yes!
