12/30/20 UPDATE - Our Processing time is running 3 days.
Items for consideration must be FRESHLY LAUNDERED and dropped off in a MAXIMUM of 2 bag/box/bins. The bags must be labelled with your name on the outside. Please do not wrap items individually and/or bring in clothing that is inside out. Items that are difficult to evaluate will not be considered for purchase.
How it Works
1. Clean out your closet
2. Bring us the best of the items you no longer wear
3. Wait for an email message with your offer
- Accept the offer and grab cash or check immediately
- Decline the offer and pick up your items immediately
Your cash offer will typically be 20-35% of what we will list the item for. A Store credit offer will typically be 40-55% of what we will list the item for. You can choose to accept the cash or credit offer and you will be paid immediately or you will be issued a credit which can be used immediately or saved for a future use. You can also choose to decline any offers and your items will be returned to you without delay. You cannot modify the offer by removing any items for sale after the offer is made.

Can you get specific pricing on certain items or take back certain items if you are unhappy with your offer? The offer will be specific to the entire batch of items we would like to purchase and cannot be modified. For example: you may bring in 30 items for consideration and we may make you an offer on all 30 or only a few of the items (in which case you would get back anything we are unable to purchase). In either event, you cannot make adjustments to the offer or our selection without another drop off and we do not provide specific pricing details on individual items unless items are bought in for consideration one at a time.
Do we still offer consignment as an option? Generally, not, but items valued greater than $200 may receive special consideration and terms by emailing the store owner directly Isa@lovedboutique.com.
Are there items we don't consider? We DO NOT ACCEPT real fur, suits or business attire of any kind, Bridal gowns, formal wear, children's or juniors, lingerie, robes or undergarments or misc. accessories like hats, scarves and belts. We do not accept discount chain brands (Walmart, Costco, Dots, etc.) and we cannot accept any items with brand or size labels removed.
The styles and brands that our customers favor do tend to change and we are constantly striving to adapt to our customer's preferences.
Do you need to schedule an appointment? Yes and that appointment must be made online through the scheduling portal above.
How should you bring your items in? Freshly laundered in a covered box, bin or fabric bag/s all labelled with your name and contact phone. It should go without saying, but items with pet hair, residual odors such as smoke, food or perfume, or that are excessively wrinkled will not even be considered and if the condition of your items is unsanitary or may present an allergy risk or nuisance odor (excessive pet hair or residual smoke odors) to our staff you may be prohibited from dropping off items in the future.
What are the shop's expectations regarding the condition of clothing, shoes & handbags? Nearly perfect. Items should be spotless (not a single stain, tear, or mark visible) and not faded or showing signs of excessive wash or wear. Both the brand and size labels should still be attached. Shoes should look nearly new.
Do we accept all seasons? No. We can only make an offer to purchase items in the season/s we are currently buying.
What season are we accepting currently?
Spring from Dec. 31st through March 30th
Summer April 1st through June 30th
Fall from July 1st through September 15th. (long sleeve & pants, boots, vests, light-weight sweaters and jackets, etc.)
Winter from Sept. 16th through December 10th (long sleeve & pants, boots, vests, heavy sweaters, heavy coats, etc.)
Always feel free to call ahead for confirmation about what styles and fabrics would be best to bring in and when.
