How to Consign

It is my goal to help the client understand the types of items I am looking for. When I do not choose your items for consignment I am happy to offer you the explanation as to why so that neither of us waste our time. The more you know about my store, the better progress you have when sifting through your items. Often clothing may be dated. This means that they are out of style and just will not sell. Sometimes my store is too full of orange items, or size 10’s or dresses. Sometimes I’m just not fond of a particular piece. In any case, I will be clear as to how I came to my decisions so that you understand what I am looking for when I represent The Velvet Crease. The staff are trained to be informative and respectful. Together we will work toward a fun and exciting store that offers unique and special fashions! Surprise me…
