Consignment Drop Off and Consignment Reclaiming
Both Require An Appointment
Our Consignment Policy may come as a shock to some as it really does limit the
acceptance of items that we'll ultimately process for consignment
but please understand that we consider our Consignors somewhat like our business partners.
We promise to not take advantage of this "partnership" and hope that you understand
that we simply want to do the best we can to continue to offer you an opportunity
to sell your carefully selected items through our store.
Without your items our business may not succeed and hopefully you feel that without us
you may find it difficult to successfully and easily sell your items by other means.
We are seeking Seasonal Women's & Men's Apparel, Accessories & Jewelry for Consignment.
Call the store at 610.519.0878 to speak to an associate to set an appointment for Drop Off.
We strongly urge you to Drop Off items only that meet the following criteria:
Items must be In Season and In Style.
Items must be Like New and in Excellent Condition.
Items must be undoubtedly Freshly Laundered.
Items must be free from holes, damages, broken zippers, odors, stains, pilling, scuff marks or worn soles.
Clothing must be folded neatly into unused plastic bags no larger than 13 gallons each (your typical kitchen trash bag).
Clothing will not be accepted if it arrives in reusable shopping totes, laundry bins, or large trash bags.
Clothing will not be accepted if it arrives on hangers unless they are recently dry cleaned with tags.
These factors are all incredibly important
as we do not hold or return items found ineligible for consignment.
We do not have the space or manpower to bag up and hold items ineligible for consignment.
Items deemed ineligible for consignment become the property of Renaissance and Renaissance will either donate or box/clearance sale these items.
You can expect to receive an email listing (Consignment Contract) within 21 days after Drop Off describing the items that were processed for consignment and the prices determined and set forth by Renaissance. Items are priced at the sole discretion of Renaissance's Processing Department
and these prices are not negotiable.
Your selling period will be between 45 and 60 days depending upon season changes.
If you wish to reclaim/retrieve unsold items at the end of your contract (Claim Date) you'll have to call the store to schedule a Reclaim Appointment.
The timing of this call is utterly important and you must actually speak to an Associate. Voice messages are not accepted. You must make this call between 5 to 10 days prior to your Claim Date.
The Associate that you speak to will email you confirmation of the date and time of the Reclaim Appointment. If you miss your scheduled Reclaim appointment we will not reschedule/extend it.
During that appointment you are required to pull your own items from the sales floor. Store associates cannot help you with this process except for with items that are locked or behind the counters.
Unsold items that are not reclaimed/retrieved become the sole property of Renaissance.
You should be prepared to spend 30 minutes to 1 hour at your Reclaim Appointment.
You may not be able to find all of your unsold items at time of reclaim.
Despite extensive efforts to thwart theft, theft does still occasionally occur.
Renaissance is NOT responsible for and does NOT pay for Lost, Stolen, Missing or Damaged items.
Expect to receive a commission check (40% standard commission on sold items)
approx. 30 days after the Expiration/Claim Date of your Consignment Contract.
If 30 days have passed and you still haven't received a commission check
you must email the Owner at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Renaissance is not a charity and does not offer tax donation slips for any items whatsoever.
