1. WE SELL ONLINE & IN-STORE
If you prefer to sift through racks of clothing in a store or would rather do so from the comfort of your own home, we give our buyers the opportunity to shop both ways.
We market your items on multiple online channels and in our Upper East Side storefront. In each venue, we use our expert knowledge of the upscale consignment market to maximize the value of each of your items.
2. WE MAKE SELLING EASY
If you live in New York, simply drop-off your items at our store! We are open Monday-Saturday and accept drop-offs between noon and 6pm. No appointment is necessary for drop-offs of 10 items for less! We also offer white glove pickup service. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to start the process.
Out of State? No problem. We send you pre-paid shipping labels so you can get your items to us hassle-free. We require a minimum of 10 items or any handbag(s) from Chanel, Hermes, Louis Vuitton, YSL, Celine, Fendi, and Gucci.
3. IT PAYS TO CONSIGN WITH US
Our consignors receive between 50% and 70% commission per item. We keep items for three months and items may take additional discounts to increase salability which will be split with the consignors. At the end of the ninety days, if the clothes are still unsold, they will be returned to you, upon request. If not requested, unsold items become the property of the store or are contributed to various local charities chosen by Designer Revival.
We are also excited to now be offering a referral program! For each friend you send our way who has never worked with us before, you will earn $5 per item in their first consignment - encouraging your friends to clean out their closets has never been more of a win/win!
4. IT'S RISK-FREE CONSIGNMENT
We work very closely with our consignors to set prices and commission rates that they are comfortable with. No surprise price adjustments or reductions!
