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 36 years in business has been possible.  Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Face masks are appreciated but optional at Secondi.  We encourage wearing face masks during busy times due to the size of our shop.

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

Check Consignor Account Balance

We require a scheduled appointment for your first consignment so that we can create an account for you and do the following:

To schedule an appointment, please call us at 202-667-1122

If you have consigned with us before and have an account with us, and wish to consign by drop-off instead of an appointment, please scroll down to Drop-Off Procedure to learn more.


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*


What we accept is weather-dependent at Secondi!  Please contact us with any questions.

We are taking “Fall/Winter/Holiday” Items at this time.  This means:

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, 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 wish to have back if we are unable to accept them, we ask that you 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, we ask a separate item list be filled out for each. However you need sign only one Drop-Off Agreement line per consignment.
  • 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.

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.

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!

Yes! Yes! Yes!
