How to Consign

The consigned price of the item will be set by management after consignor has dropped off items and signed Consignment Agreement. This excludes handmade items. Handmade items will be priced by their creator.

All items will be kept for one year, with automatic 15% to 50% markdowns taken after 6 months. Markdowns depend on the condition, season, and demand for the item. In addition, Kate’s Closet Consignment will hold normal periodic sales of out-of-season and clearance merchandise and any merchandise in stock subject to those sales. This excludes handmade items. Management and Artist will decide on a fair period of time to display item. If the item(s) go unsold within the allotted amount of time, the Artist must pick up item within another 7 days.

You will receive a check monthly (issued on the 5th of each month) for 30% of the proceeds of clothing, shoes, bags, or anything not handmade OR your items will be sold at 40% per item toward Store Credit. Crafters and artists will receive 70% of the profits of their merchandise/creations. Checks will be issued for amount exceeding $10.00. Any amount below $10.00 will accrue until the following month’s check.

All unsold merchandise is subject to be donated, if agreed upon by the consignor in the Consignment Agreement, after the end of the consignment period. If elected not to donate items, consignor must pick up items within 7 days after being contacted.
