WHY WEARHOUSE CONSIGNMENT?   

     Better Brands  Our experience has proven that better brands sell best at our store. Contemporary brands such as Anthropologie, JCrew, Ralph Lauren, Ann Taylor, Loft, Zara, Eileen Fisher, Talbots, JJill and Lands End to name just a few!   See Accepted Brands for more detail.  

     Current Styles  Our customers appreciate seeing styles recently in stores. We do our best to carry styles that are current and desirable and it applies to everything we review...clothing, shoes, and handbags. We look for better quality brands and we stay current within the 1-3 seasons.

     Casual & Athleisure Wear   Let's face it, COVID has changed the way we dress!  With many of us working from home, or just dressing more comfortable for the day, we are selling more casual wear, athletic, and in general... more comfortable styles.   

    No Appointment Necessary  We take drop-offs every day up to one hour before closing.  Allow 15 minutes for us to review your items.  We will return to you items we cannot accept.  Items must be picked up same day or may be donated.

    Cash Offer  Not a fan of consigning?  No worries. You have the option to accept our cash offer for your items.  We typically pay 25%-40% of what we expect to sell the items.  You'll be paid that day!

    50/50 Consign   We always recommend consignment because you have the opportunity to make the most for your items.  Unlike many consignment shops, we give you a 50/50 split when the item sells.  Items selling for $200 or more make 60% for the consignor!  There is no fee to set up an account.  In addition, we have recently implemented an online shopping website, and sell regularly on eBay.  At Wearhouse Consignment you have the BEST chance for selling your items!
