Bringing in Consignment
  • Consignment is accepted daily with no appointment necessary*
  • Your consignment may be processed immediately or accepted as a drop off
  • Drop offs are processed within 3 days
  • Consignors should check on the status of their drop off orders after 3 days and all "No Thank Yous" must be picked up within 7 days of process date
  • Items must be clean, in like new condition and free of stains. We prefer items neatly folded in a shopping bag. Please avoid bringing items in trash bags or on hangers. 
    *Please note, we do not accept consignment over holiday weekends. We may also occasionally press pause on drop offs to catch up on current inventory. If this is the case, it will be posted on our website, social media, google, and store door. 

    Pick Ups


    Pick up dates are noted on the consignment drop off form. It is the consignor’s responsibility to pick up their inventory after the 60 day period - no reminders will be sent.  All unclaimed items will be donated to a local charity 7 days after pick up date. If you would like to pick up your expiring items, please call the store to let us know so we can make sure to have them ready for you. 


    ​Pricing
    Prices, determined by the Changing Tides staff, are approximately 1/3 off the retail value. Luxury items may be priced at 1/2 retail value. 

    Payment
    Consignors receive 40% of the final selling price in cash or store credit for items under $200. If we price above $200, the consignor receives a minimum of 50%. Store credit can be used on a rolling basis - checks can be picked up at the end of the consignment period. Clothing is marketed for 60 days.

    FAQs

    Do I need an appointment to consign? 

    There is no appointment necessary to consign*. Your consignment may be processed immediately or if a buyer is unavailable it will be accepted as a “drop off”. A buyer will review and process your drop offs within 3 business days.  Items that are not accepted, also known as "No Thank You's," should be picked up within 7 days or they will be donated.

    *Please note, we do not accept consignment over holiday weekends (Memorial Day, Labor Day, 4th of July, etc.)

    How does Changing Tides price items?

    We determine a sales price based on brand, condition, age, and demand. Items are typically priced at 1/3 of the current retail value. Luxury items, including designer handbags, are priced with more consideration.

    Does Changing Tides markdown items?

    After 60 selling days, items may be marked down 50 percent. Items aren't guaranteed to be marked down at 60 days.

    When do I receive payment? Does my store credit ever expire?

    We are happy to issue a check at the end of your consignment period upon request. The balance in your consignor account does not expire. You are always welcome to use your consignor credit in our retail store. 

    What happens to my items that do not sell?

    After 60 days, unsold items may be reclaimed. Your pick up date will be noted in your consignor contract. Consignors should call ahead of time and we will do our best to set aside any unsold inventory. Items that aren't reclaimed with 7 days of the pick up date will be donated. Any items found stained or damaged during the consignment period will be donated.
