DROP OFFS

Once you’ve consigned with us by appointment, you may drop off your items at your convenience!  If you haven’t consigned with Secondi before, please call to make an appointment.

We are unable to review your drop-off with you in person when you bring it in, and we are unable to return items once they have been dropped off. If there are any items that you would prefer we price with you, or items you want back if we are unable to accept them, please schedule an appointment.  Any consignment that is mailed in will be considered a drop-off and reviewed as such.

We process drop-offs on a first-come-first-served basis (on average between 3-7 days) and will email  you an itemized list of the items we were able to accept, the prices, and a tally of any donations.


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, please fill out a separate item list for each.
  • Please drop-off no more than 20 items at a time.
  • Please bring in clothing neatly folded, or on hangers if they wrinkle easily.

2. Please bring items between a half-hour after we open and an hour before we close.

3. Hand them over to one of our staff members–we’ll make sure that all forms are complete, then you are free to shop or be on your way!


Donation Records:

We now provide, by request, an end-of-the-year donation form that tallies total donations for the year. Please request this year’s donation form after December 31st.

CONSIGNMENT FORMS

UPDATE!  We have been made aware that some consignors shipping with FedEX have had their packages returned to them as “Rejected” or “Unable to Deliver.”  We do not know why this is happening but rest assured we are open and accepting consignments.  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.

Please don’t take offense with any brands on the “No” List–this list is determined by what our customers are looking for, and what is selling best at Secondi.

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