Bring us your swimsuits (vintage or current in like-new condition), mid and high-rise shorts, lightweight sweaters (cotton knits, lightweight cashmere in springy/summery colors), dresses (lighter fabrics) and skirts (denim, cotton, prints). We are also looking for versatile outerwear like; leather moto jackets, canvas field jackets, jean jackets, unlined rain jackets and other woven cotton, linen jackets.
Don’t forget your leather and canvas bags in lighter colors (totes, backpacks and crossbody bags are super popular right now), scarves (lightweight, springy colors) and hats (wide brim/woven). We are now looking for sandals (Birkenstocks, Chacos, Tevas, leather strappy sandals and clogs), but we are still accepting mules, slides, oxfords, open back clogs as well as fashion sneakers. We are also looking for western style boots, and low ankle booties with cut-outs, perforation, peep heel or toes and in lighter colors.

Frequently Asked Questions
It is a good idea to call us before you come by to make sure we are not full for the day.
No. You are welcome to use your store credit as soon as items sell, however, we do not offer cash or credit up front.
Our consignment period is 60 days. Occasionally, we will extend the period at our discretion if we feel an item needs a bit more time to find the right home.
If there is anything left at the end of your consignment period, you have two options: leave them with us and they will most likely get a bit more time to sell on the sale rack before donation OR call/email us to let us know you’d like to take them back and we will gather them and hold them for up to one week to give you time to collect them. After a week, they will be donated unless we’ve heard from you. Please note that we do not automatically hold items past their expiration date! Consignors must contact us prior to their expiration date to arrange to have their items pulled.
Generally, we will pass on older items even if they are classic styles. For us, this means styles that were purchased new more than 5 years ago. Even if the style has not changed much over the years, we have found that items with older tags and slight variations in cut due to their age just do not sell well. We do accept select vintage items that are currently trending.
You are welcome to call, email, or come into the store to check on your account balance. We will gladly write you a check for any amount over $10. If you choose to use your credit for store purchases, you will get the higher payout percentage and you may use some or all of the credit available to you. Whether you choose to take a check, store credit, or a combination of both, your balance with us never expires.
We are happy to mail you a check. Please call or email us to make this request and include your mailing address. We charge $2.00 for postage and handling.
