spring consignment begins in january
Due to COVID~19, we are now requiring all consignments be "pre-approved" via Facebook or IG Messenger. Please send us clear pictures of the items you would like to consign. We will respond to your message to let you know what items we will accept and when you can bring them in. Please limit your clothing items to your finest 20 or less. We also will consider 5 jewelry items, 5 handbags and 2 pairs of new or very lightly worn shoes per message, per week. Items are accepted on a seasonal basis. Quality and appearance are important to our customers, so we ask for apparel that is clean, free of excessive wrinkles, in excellent condition and brought to us in bags you are willing to part with. Items should be free of lint, pet hair and fragrance or smoke odors. Items with excessive signs of wear or with strong odors, will not be accepted. Remember to Show us YOUR BEST...Donate the rest! Please follow these guidelines closely so you are pleased with the outcome. If in doubt, give us a call before sending us your pictures.
We welcome currently styled (purchased within last 3 years), and currently in season, Women's and Misses better-label/ popular, designer apparel & accessories (nearly new shoes, better/*designer handbags, *designer & costume jewelry). Clothing sizes accepted: 0-24/ XS - 3X. While we love vintage items, we are not a vintage store and rarely will accept vintage clothing. We will consider vintage handbags, hats and jewelry from time to time. We accept various artisan creations such as candles, wine bottle art, bath & body products, handmade cards, hand created jewelry etc.
* Pricing or receipt documentation for fine jewelry & designer handbags is most helpful.
We are a very small boutique which requires us to be very selective. In order to accept an item into our boutique, we must be confident that we can sell it ("wearable" and " sell-able" " are very different). It is our goal and job to make money for you! Based on our experience, we know what will and will not sell in our boutique. We may agree that the dress you brought in is stunning or the business suit is fabulous, but not consign it because we know it won’t sell in our boutique. The world of fashion is a seasonable one. While we may not be able to accept a strapless dress in the winter, we may be looking forward to accepting such an item during the spring or summer. Sometimes we find ourselves overstocked with certain items and therefore are extremely careful about what items we accept into our boutique. At other times, we may find ourselves with plenty of room and eager to accept a wider variety of items. If we didn't accept your item this time, please don't be discouraged and try again next time.
Some items we are not currently accepting: suits, slacks, evening wear, tube tops, swim attire, pajamas or robes, items purchased over 3 years ago or items that do not pass for current styles. We will not accept faux or counterfeit designer goods of any kind.
All prices are set by Sparkly Ragz. We will price the items to sell with resale pricing that is fair to both buyer and seller. Our goal is to sell your quality items for maximum profit quickly. Items are displayed on the sales floor for a period of 60 days. Items may be reduced for discount at any time but will always be subject to a 25% markdown if they have not sold after the first 30 days.
If your item is priced under $100, you will receive 40% of the final selling price, items priced higher than $100 may result in a higher payout percentage. Net payouts will be reduced by any taxes and fees. Artisan created and high priced designer items may be priced based on what is determined at the time of intake with the consignor and the store and may remain on the sales floor for longer than 60 days.
Checks are available for pickup in the store after the 1st of the month, following the sale of your item. Checks will not be mailed unless a prior arrangement has been made with Sparkly Ragz. Any payments not claimed within 6 months of the last activity on the account will be forfeited. We ask that you check your online account at least twice during the 60 day consignment period, so you are aware of what is selling and what balance is available to you. It is your responsibility to claim your unsold items within 7 days of their expiration date or the items will become store property.
Please call for specific start dates
