How to Consign
Bring your quality used and new items to us - we sell them for you and share the proceeds with you!
GATHER & PREP
Select your items based on the following criteria:
- Clothing sizes 14 & up, shoes size 8 & up, and all accessories
- Ready for sale:
- Washed and ironed or dry cleaned
- No stains, odors or pet hair
- Free of visible wear
- Working zippers and all buttons attached
- Hanging or very neatly folded. We prefer items on hangers, which will be returned. Wrinkled items will be rejected.
- Contemporary clothing: primarily purchased within the last few years. We do take some select vintage pieces.
- Seasonally appropriate: we are currently fall items. Please review our criteria on the Fall Consignment blog post.
- Quality brands: There are some brands that we do not accept based on the low original retail price, including most brands from Target, Walmart and other discount stores. View a list of brands we do not accept in on our FAQ page.
BRING YOUR ITEMS TO US
Walk-in appointments of 30 or fewer items are accepted Tuesday - Saturday 11am - 5:45pm. For more than 30 items, please contact us to make an appointment. Consignment is accepted by appointment only on Sundays.
- We review your items and confirm the number of items taken for consignment.
- Items we are unable to consign will be returned to you or will be donated to our affiliated non-profit Seattle Women's Assistance Fund (SWAF).
- We may reject items if they are stained, soiled, out-of-date or in ill repair as well as in consideration of our currently inventory.
Once accepted, items are entered into our database and an inventory list with pricing and expiration date is emailed. Your items are available for sale for 100 days.
During the majority of your consignment period, your inventory will be sold at full price. Before they expire, items are reduced to 25%, 50% and 75% off for varying periods of time. In addition we have sales & special promotions to increase sale volumes. We will get the best possible price for your items.
As items sell, you receive 40% of the sale price and your account balance will accrue. We do not notify you when items sell, but you can contact us at any time for your account balance.
SHOP, COLLECT OR DONATE
When you have a balance on your account, you may purchase items in-store and receive a 25% store credit bonus.
If you chose to receive a payment at the end of your consignment period, a check is mailed within 7-10 days of the expiration date.
At the end of your 100-day consignment period, unsold items may be claimed by appointment. You must contact us 3-5 days prior to the expiration date on your inventory list. Items not claimed by the expiration date become the sole property of Two Big Blondes. Unclaimed items are donated through Seattle Women's Assistance Fund (SWAF) to local low-income and homeless women. The remainder is included in our semi-annual Bag Sales where the proceeds go to SWAF.
