10 Tips to Maximize The Value of Your Items
MAKE IT SHINE.
Hardware on high quality fashion accessories can be quickly brought back to glistening condition with a little dab of silver polish and a dash of elbow grease. Be sure to use a polishing cloth and test a small area before going to town. For the sparkling jewels be sure to use a general jewellry cleanser or give it a good blast of steam before having it appraised.
A new set of buttons can make a drab item look dynamite. There are many well-stocked button sources that can be found online, we recommend lotsofbuttons.com. With that said, make sure the buttons you use don't compromise the item's integrity.
TAKE OUT THE SEWING KIT.
Take a needle to your items and make sure there are no open seams, loose buttons, or falling hems. If you don't have the time or patience, most dry cleaners and tailors will do this at very little cost.
SHOE POLISH IS A WONDERFUL THING.
It can make your favorite shoes everybody's darlings.
CLEAN AND PRESS
There’s nothing worse than receiving items covered in cat or dog hair. Take your items to a dry cleaner you trust and have them delivered clean and pressed. We only take items that can go right onto the selling floor.
BRING IN ALL THE BELLS AND WHISTLES.
Deliver your items with all the original accouterments (sleeper, shoe bags, paper work, receipt, etc...) Having all of the original documentation is a huge selling point and will go a long way at the cash register. Please note, we can't always take the original box because of storage and space issues but it's a good idea to bring it just in case.
NEVER REMOVE THE LABELS
We won’t take the garment if the labels or stamps are missing so deal with the pesky label... never cut them out.
DON'T STORE ITEMS IN A BAG BY THE FRONT DOOR
They tend to get wrinkled and look worse for wear. In most cases they will not be considered for consignment.
BRING YOUR SHOES TO THE SHOEMAKER.
A $20 repair or leather cleaning and conditioning could make you another $100 on consignment. It’s well worth the investment.
Zippers, snaps and buckles need to all be working properly. If they are not, take them in to be repaired.
