Search your closet(s) for clothes. . .
We’ve listed items and brands that we are currently looking for throughout the website, so check this out before you come in!
When selecting items to sell, bring clothes in the same condition that you would like to purchase them if you were the one buying!
Laying your items flat when bringing them to the store helps us sort through the clothes more quickly.
- 1. Current styles of great clothing!
- 2. A willingness to part with your goods so somebody else can enjoy them!
- 3. Knowledge of what we are taking at the present time – look at the “Tips on Selling”
- 4. Your Photo ID – apart from your name, we will not record any personal information you do not wish to provide! (click here for reasons)
● You can take your clothing to a consignment shop. Yes, it might sell, no guarantees, but you’ll find out after 45-90 days if you made any money.
● You can sell it on Kijiji or Craigslist. Of course, you might have to sell a piece of clothing to a complete stranger in a parking lot 5 km’s from your house on a rainy evening and maybe make the sale if it fits them properly. And that is only for 1 piece of clothing. Did we mention that you have to take photos and respond to many emails, even weeks after you sold your article. Are you going to do this for every piece of clothing you have?
● You can sell it on Ebay. Once again, you will have to wait weeks to find out what people are willing to pay for it. Do you need the added nail-biting anxiety in your life to find out you waited a whole month to find out you sold a piece of clothing for the price of a can of coke.
● You can donate it. This is fantastic, but there might be enough life in where you can recover some of the money you invested in your clothing. And when there isn’t enough life left in the clothing, we are sure that the last person who has your clothing will still donate it. Your clothing just added enjoyment to several more people’s lives before it arrived at the donation store.
● OR you can sell it to The Patch. One stop shop, cash on the spot. Now doesn’t that sound easier!
2. It’s a great time to correspond with our staff to find out exactly what our customers are after so that the next time you visit us, you can have a more fruitful experience
3. Don’t fret. There are many avenues to sell your clothing, including consignment shops, Kijiji, Craigslist and Ebay to name a few. Several of these avenues reach a broader market than we do where you will be able to achieve maximum value for your goods.
4. Remember, the more discriminating we are, the better the grade of clothing we will have in the store. On the flip side, if we took everything that people offered us, we would have a pretty low grade of clothing (ie. think thrift store), except we would have to pay for all our clothing unlike thrift stores. Don’t think we would be around too long with that formula…
5. Maybe our inventory levels are too high at the present moment for a particular product. Maybe it’s not the right season. Maybe it is for a reason that doesn’t meet the eye. Just remember that as tempting as it is to take it personally when we reject some of your articles because we do understand that you identify closely with your clothing, it isn’t you!
Come on down to the store. . .
Our goal is to pay you 1/3 of the price that we would sell the item in our store (i.e. if we sell a top for $15, we would offer you $5 or if you prefer a store credit you would receive a $7.50 store credit).
Another Benefit: Ever In a rush. . . ?
No problem! Drop off your goods and pick up your cash the next day!
Not sure if we will buy what you have and do not want to drive down to the store. . .
Our First-Fifty-In-Credit policy takes care of that. . .
