CONSIGNORS

Since this store opened several years ago, over half a million dollars has been paid to our consignors as their share of the sale of their items.  Over 80% of the items taken in by A Bit of Couture sell.  It takes proper merchandising, hard work, and careful selection of items to make A Bit of Couture and you successful. We take furniture 7 days a week.  We take all other items Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday from 10am-4pm or by appointment.  If you are unsure about whether or not we would take your piece of furniture, you may send a picture of the item to kupang@aol.com for feedback.  The information below is mostly geared towards clothing and accessories, but may also be applied to furniture.  A Bit of Couture does not accept items that are ripped, torn, stained, have an unpleasant smell, or are out of style or season.

Before consigning, inspect each item and ask yourself why.  If the answer is, I love it, but

  • it will never fit me again.

  • it's just not my color.

  • my lifestyle has changed and I'll never use it again.

  • I've had it for a while and the tags are still on it.

  • it was an impulse buy and it just isn't for me.

then bring it in.  We'd love to consign it for you.  But remember, focus your selection on the current season.

If the item you're considering is:

  • more than 3 years old

  • worn out

  • needs repair

  • looks dated or out of style

  • not good quality

  • something you consider old and just want out of your closet

then shoppers would feel the same way you do about these things.  It's unlikely that we would accept them.  You might consider making a charitable donation of these garmets.

PREPARING YOUR ITEMS

Clean and pressed sell the best!  The cleanliness and appearance of your item is crucial to attracting buyers.  

All clothing must be freshly dry cleaned or laundered, pressed, and on hangers or neatly folded to be accepted!!!

Please check all of your items for:

  • soil or stains, especially around the neck, cuff, underarms, and crotch areas. 

  • missing buttons and broken zippers

  • torn and/or stained linings

  • faded color

 

Please note that your items are priced approximately 70% lower than full retail price.
