Non-Bridal Gown Consignment

Re-purposing bridal, prom, formal, and semi-formal clothing and accessories in new or like-new condition.

To get the most out of your selling experience, here are a few tips:

- Items for resale must be in current style and in clean and acceptable condition (we ask that it be within 3 years of age), ready for resale.

Items must be clean, odor free, wrinkle free, and have no stains, holes, missing buttons, broken zippers, or tears or torn seams.

- All items will be inspected for flaws, cleanliness, and suitability for the store’s needs.

- Please pre-inspect your clothing at home in a well-lit room or area such as a dining or living room. You can touch them up or spot clean

as necessary at home to ensure intake.  Many items can be spot cleaned, hand-washed, or laundered at home to save you money!

- We do not do any cleaning, mending, steaming, or repairs. Please ensure these are not needed to be done to the items,

which will also help sell your items!  Check for deodorant, make-up, spray tan, and/or dirty hemlines.

- We do not accept any children's or men's items.
