How to Consign

So you have great clothes and-or accessories and you think they are too good to donate and it would be nice to get some money for them but you don't want to sell them yourself. What do you do?

You might consider selling them on consignment at My Shop on Rugby Drive. ( check out the FAQ page on "what is consignment")

Where do you start and what should you do to get your things ready?

First, consider the time of year. We can't sell shorts in the winter. The schedule for bringing in is:
February 1 to May 30 Spring items
May 1 to July 31 Summer items
September 1 to February 28 Fall/winter items
Fur coats October thru January 31
Call ahead with any questions

All clothing must be clean and pressed without any defects: no holes, tears, stains, broken zippers, missing buttons and on hangers. Please...no garbage bags. If you don't have enough hangers, you can get some from My Shop. No worry about your things age as we now have our Etsy store for vintage items.Handbags, shoes and other accessories need to be clean and in good condition. Those can be brought in in bags or boxes. Shoes should to next-to-new condition as they are the most difficult to sell.

My Shop is an upscale consignment store, so we do not accept items from Kohl's, Walmart, Kmart, Penney's, some brands from Macy's, Forever 21, Charlotte Russ, Old Navy, Payless Shoes, Target, Sears. Also, we don't sell used swimsuits or underwear. But we do sell sleepwear in good condition.

The most important thing you will want to know is "How much money can I expect?" You will get 40% of the selling price. But, take into account that you may have loved your items, however, someone else may not value them as much as you do.

Call with any questions or for more information.

So, are you ready to make some money?!
