Think carefully before consigning

  • No, I would not go back!

I decided to consign a pair of Dior shoes but I was the one who had to reach out to confirm whether the shoes had been sold since I had heard nothing. I was told that the check had been sent to me (but no email to give me a heads up, which could have saved the next issue). After I confirmed I never received the check, I was told that I would receive a new check less a $35 cancellation fee. I don't see how penalizing me for not having received the payment owed to me makes any sense, especially as they already take 60% of the selling price. If they care so much about losing checks, they should send out an email providing notice that the item has been sold and payment is on the way or they should send certified receipt/signature required. After refusing to accept the penalty for their cancelled check, they "waived" the fee as a "courtesy." I rather not risk being penalized the next time their check doesn't reach me and will not consign with them again.

I have been patronizing this store since it opened and I absolutely love it! All of the items are first rate and rare finds! I even take some of my bags to be resold! I introduce it only to my exclusive besties!

I'm a Butter shopper, but recently I've been sure to stop into Consignment en route. This is a very well-edited collection of previously-owned designer apparel. The best part is, unlike all those smelly and crowded designer consignment shops in the city, this one is so clean and organized that you don't even realize you're thrifting.

Some Hints:

  • The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
