How to consign with us:

We accept all of our consignment by appointment only.
30 items TOTAL accepted 
Our appointments typically book 4-6 weeks in advance and consist of 3 month windows for each of the 4 seasons as noted above. Our philosophy is to carry the current season's clothing while you need it vs. jumping ahead to the next seasons too quickly (we'll leave that for the big chain stores!!)
 
If you have GEAR only, we may be able to get you in sooner! 
 
Email us if interested in booking an appointment.
Consignment Terms:

60 days / 40%payout

 

What we accept

Looking to consign?
There are just a few things we want you to remember when sorting your clothing and goods.
1) CONDITION is the #1 factor - regardless of brand, we know our customers
are looking for items in GREAT condition!
That means NO: stains, odors, pilling, misshapen/shrunken, holes/tears,
broken/missing fasteners, pet hair, name tags or removed brand/size tags.
2) AGE - items should be no more than 5 years old. Because...well...style! 
That includes clothing, accessories, toys, books and gear.
3) SEASON - we hold appointments based on 4 separate seasons. Separate your
apparel by season and bring only the appropriate items to your appointment.
Basically, in order to make your consignment experience the best it can be,
you should review all your pieces ahead of time and present them
in their very best condition to be considered for the store!

Depending on current stock levels, we may hold your merchandise for up to 10 days before it is inventoried. An ITEM LIST REPORT email is sent to you when items are entered, priced and displayed. Consignment term begins with the date of your email.

  • Pricing is approximately 1/4 to 1/3 of retail price. New in Box or New with Tags is up to 3/4 of retail price. Items found to be in less that good condition at the time of inventory will be subject to donation without notice to the consignor.

  • Prices may be reduced by 30% or more after 15 days depending on fluctuating demand. Set prices may also be discounted during a consignment period for 'category discounts' (i.e jean's sale), store events and end of season sales.

  • 40% of the clothing/accessories (up to 50% of gear) SOLD during your consignment term is yours. Checks are issued UPON REQUEST at the end of your 60 day term. Balances can be used, any time during or after your consignment term, toward in-store purchases, including a 15% discount.

  • PICK UP OF UNSOLD ITEMS IS NOT ALLOWED, unless specifically arranged at the time of consignment and is LIMITED to high end items reselling for $25 or more. Unsold items at the end of your consignment term become property of Apple of My Eye and will be donated to a local charity of our discretion. Donation receipts are available upon request. 

  • At the end of the 60 day consignment term, items become property of Apple of My Eye. If items are sold after the 60 days, but prior to being pulled for donation, 100% of those sales go to Apple of My Eye.

Prepare for your appointment
the key to consignment? 
Follow these 3 easy steps to make your consignment experience the most successful.
1. Sort your clothing items into three piles: GREAT, GOOD & POOR condition items.
  • GREAT-condition clothing is NEW or looks new, has retained its shape, and bears no signs of wear and tear.
  • GOOD-condition clothing may be a little bit faded or worn but is still in wearable condition with no stains, holes or missing/broken fasteners.
  • POOR-condition clothing is stained, pilled, misshapen/shrunken, threadbare or has holes in it. These are NOT items to bring for consideration - instead - these items should be responsibly RECYCLED.
2. Prepare your GREAT & GOOD condition clothing items & accessories:
  • make sure items are clean and recently laundered.
  • button, zip and/or snap fasteners
  • remove name tags or initials
  • place multi piece outfit items together (must be originally purchased multi-piece outfit, same size & brand)
  • shoes should be clean, scuff free and no debris in the treads/soles
3. Pack up your items for your scheduled appointment:
  • Fold clothing neatly and bring to your appointment in a reusable tote, shopping bag, basket, bin or box.
We WILL NOT review clothing brought in garbage bags!
  • games, puzzles or toys with small or detachable parts should be placed in clear zipper bags.
 
 
 
We will accept up to 30 items at your appointment
including your accessories & misc. goods/toys.
Make sure you are bringing in your very best!
WE WILL NOT REVIEW EXCESSIVE AMOUNTS OF CLOTHING or accessories!

it is your responsibility to pre-sort PRIOR to your appointment. 
 
WHAT HAPPENS AT YOUR APPOINTMENT:
