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 34 years in business has been possible. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
These are extraordinary times in which we find ourselves. Like so many others, we have decided that it is time to temporarily close our doors in order to help stem the effects of COVID-19. We will reopen at the soonest possible time, with great fanfare.
In the interest of transparency, we want you to know what this will entail.
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.
Secondi is Dupont Circle’s longest-running women’s consignment shop, featuring both the latest styles and timeless classics since 1986! Secondi has something for everyone–whether you are a designer collector, a fashionable professional, a trendsetter, or a woman on the go. Find your favorite labels all in one boutique!
Our store is a sunny and spacious meeting place. We not only welcome customers from all over the world, we are honored to have consignors from all over the U.S.!
Our dedicated staff includes several members who have been with the store over ten years, and Secondi has been owned and operated by Caitrine Callison since opening.
Our staff, our great location, our loyal consigners, and our first-rate selection makes Secondi a warm, intimate shop where you can find everything you need to look your best, at a reasonable price!
Come and see us today!

The staff is pleasant and does a good job of keeping the enormous inventory well-organized. – Judi D.
Besides the reasonable prices, it’s nice to hit up Secondi for clothing that might not be the very same item that every woman in DC seems to be sporting on a given week. – Erin W.
Definitely was not disappointed. In fact, had to pry myself away! –Lara R.
I walked upstairs and the staff welcomed me immediately the atmosphere was bright and warm. I had a hard time leaving and LOVED the adventure of not knowing what I’d find. – Mel B.

Please note that due to DC Covid-19 prevention measures Secondi is not scheduling consignment appointments or accepting drop-offs until we reopen. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Your first consignment is done by appointment so that we can create an account for you and do the following:
To schedule an appointment, please call us at 202-667-1122. Following your appointment, your items go out to sell the same day!
These are our most important terms for consigning at Secondi; we will personally review all of the terms of our consignment contract with you during your appointment to make sure we answer any questions you may have!
What we accept at any one time is determined by our current inventory.
March- May:Spring items accepted*
May- August: Summer items accepted*
September/Oct: Fall items accepted*
October-February: Winter items accepted*
*Please keep in mind that all clothing is contingent upon weather at Secondi! The stated timelines above are simply a guide. At the moment we are accepting spring/summer items. This means pretty dresses for day and evening, some short boots, lightweight sweaters, and lightweight outerwear. We are accepting fewer skirts, work pants, and are not accepting thicker coats, heavy sweaters, suede, or velvet.
Note to previous consignors: due to Covid-19 procedures we are not accepting drop-offs at this time. Please email us at email@example.com for more information.
Once you’ve consigned with us by appointment, you are free to drop off your items at your convenience! If you haven’t consigned with Secondi before, see above on making a first-time appointment to set up your account.
How to drop off your consignment at Secondi:
1. Complete the Drop-Off Listing Form (downloadable below). You may do this before you come, or in the store–whichever you prefer! If you are bringing in more than one bundle or group of items, we ask a separate item list be filled out for each. However you need sign only one Drop-Off Agreement line per consignment.
2. Bring your items in during drop-off hours (see below); we ask clothing be neatly folded (or on hangers if they are easily wrinkled).
3. Hand them over to one of our staff members; after we make sure that all forms are complete you are free to shop or be on your way!
We process drop-offs on a first-come-first-served basis (on average between 3-7 days) and will email (or mail if you prefer) an itemized list of the items we were able to accept, the prices, and a tally of any donations.
We are unable to return items once they have been dropped off. If there are any items that you would prefer to have back if we are unable to accept them, you may prefer to set up an appointment at which time we will be happy to review your items and their prices with you. Any consignment that is mailed in will be considered a drop-off and reviewed as such.
We have changed how we provide Bread for the City donation forms: we now provide, by request, an end-of-the-year donation form that tallies total donations for the year. Please request a Bread for the City form after December 31st.
Sat, Mon, Tues:11:30 AM – 5 PM
Wed – Fri:11:30 AM – 6 PM
Sunday:1:30 PM – 4 PM
PLEASE NOTE: DC has mandated that all non-essential retail shops close in response to Covid-19. We will prepare requested checks as soon as we are allowed to reopen. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
New!! Check your Secondi account balance online here! Your username and password will be the email address Secondi has on file for you. If you have any technical issues please contact us.
UPDATE! We have finally integrated drop-off-agreement forms and listing forms into one form for drop-offs. Hooray! Now all you need to leave for a drop-off is the Drop-Off Listing Form, completed as usual, and signed either digitally or in ink on the signature line at the top. Questions? Give us a call at 202-667-1122.

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!
