How We Work
At The Wearhouse, we do our best to make the Consignment Process as easy as possible. We understand that schedules get hectic, and dates can be hard to remember, and that limiting you to one consignment appointment can be time consuming and stressful. That's why we decided to do things differently! Consigning with us is as easy as 1,2,3....
1. No Appointments
We accept drop offs Monday - Saturday 10am - 3pm > 2023 CONSIGNMENTS END NOVEMBER 15. SPRING 2024 WILL BEGIN JANUARY 15<
Allow 15-30 minutes for us to review your items. You're welcome to look around the shop, go upstairs to The Studio to grab a cup of coffee and browse our Boutique! Feel free to run some errands - there's even a cafe upstairs if you want to grab a quick lunch! We just ask that you return same day to pick up your remaining items and your receipt. Any items left after 24hrs will be donated.
2. 50/50 Consignment Split
Most consignment shops operate on a 40/60 consignment split, with only 40% of the selling price going to the consignor. But at Wearhouse Consignment, we believe you deserve more! We pay our consignors 50% of the sold item. Our consignment period is 60 days for in store items, 90 days for online items. Once your items sell, you may pick up your money or use it as store credit. Consignors having items selling at $200 or more receive 60% of the selling price! In addition to displaying your items in our shop & studio, we also regularly sell on eBay, Instagram, Facebook, and Shopify, giving you the best chance for your items to sell.
3. Flexible and Transparent Consignment Process
Your consignment receipt will give you an approximate end date - you may call at any time to check in on your Consignor Account. When you call, we will walk you through any balance in your account, what items have sold, and how much time remains on your consignment. If you have a balance, you may have a check mailed to you! You do not need to wait until your consignment ends to request your payout.
If you have specialty or designer items with us, ask to speak to Libby or Jill.
When your consignment ends, you have 2 choices: pick up any remaining items, or have remaining items donated. If you would like your items returned to you, please call 1 week prior to your end date to speak with a staff-member! If you choose not to call, any unsold items will be deeply discounted before being donated to Lancaster Food Hub: a free clothing bank in Lancaster City.
