FAQ


 

I've just cleaned out my closet, can I bring these finds to you?

Items may have sparked joy at one point, but if they were purchased more than 3 years ago, they may not be in style now, and we may not be able to consign them.  Please make an appointment for your brand name clothing, costume and fine jewelry, handbags, or shoes that are in excellent condition.

We do, however, accept item of 1980's and 90's vintage!

My daughter loved these Uggs - why won't you accept them?

Some items are too well-loved to pass on to someone else.  Whether it be target age, style or condition, we try to be discriminating about what we take, so that we accept what the customers visiting our shop are interested in purchasing.   We don't accept teen-age targeted brands, or brands that sell very inexpensive items.

Why would I consign - isn't it easier to just donate things I don't want?

If you look at your closet and see items you purchased and never wore, or invested in and just aren't using any more, consigning is a great option!  We give your clothes and accessories a chance to be used and appreciated, while putting a few dollars back in your pocket.

Do you carry Petites or Plus sizes?

Yes!  We carry a large selection of sizes XS to 3X,  and petite items in many sizes.  We think everyone deserves a great deal!

How do you price your items?

We usually price our consigned items at approximately 1/4 - 1/3 of their original retail price, but sometimes adjust for desirability, and condition.  Your appointment is your chance to tell us all about the items.

Can I drop off merchandise that I would like to get rid of?

We donate items to Leeward Industries in York, ME, and Concord Women's Club Scholarship jewelry and handbag sales.  We are happy to accept drop-offs of jewelry and handbags any time. While we can't take large clothing donations, we would be happy to donate items that we cannot take for consignment, items that do not sell, and small donations.

Do you put items on hold for customers?

Yes, we can hold items for a day or two!

Are the prices at your shop negotiable?

No - but most items have timed markdown pricing - read your ticket carefully, you could have an even better deal than you first thought!

I only have jewelry or handbags - can't you squeeze me in?

Our consignees bring their own jewelry and handbags to their appointments, we usually don't have space to display extra items.  If you have items that are of superior quality or truly unique, please give us a call.

HOW DO I MAKE AN APPOINTMENT FOR CONSIGNMENT?

Appointments are booked on our Booking->Appointments page. LARGE appointments are booked 1 month in advance. These open on the 1st of each month at 8 AM. The month often books completely on that day. SMALL appointments are booked 2 weeks in advance. One week of appointments opens each Monday morning at 8 AM. There are only 3 - 6 of these available for any given week, and they book very quickly.

DO YOU HAVE TIMES FOR WALK-IN CONSIGNMENT?

We consign by appointment only, and book our appointments through the Appointments page on our website. We are unable to hold walk-in days at this time. Our appointments book up to a month in advance. Please see Booking->Appointments for roll out details.

HOW MANY ITEMS MAY I BRING TO MY APPOINTMENT?

If you have 10 - 20 items to consign, please book a LARGE appointment. If you have 10 items or less, please book a SMALL appointment. Please book only 1 appointment per month.

ARE THERE ITEMS YOU DON'T ACCEPT? DO YOU ACCEPT FUR COATS OR SWIMWEAR?

We do not accept Fur coats, swimsuits, lingere, sleepwear or wedding gowns - no matter how beautiful. These items have not proven to sell well with us.We also do not accept maternity wear.

ARE THERE BRANDS YOU DON'T CONSIGN?

Yes. As cute as they are, inexpensive brands of clothing just don't hold much value the second time around. Brands such as: Old Navy, H&M, Primark, Shein, Forever 21 and brands sold at KMart or Target are examples of brands to put in the "Donate" pile rather than the "Consign" pile. Please see a more complete list of brands we don't accept on our About Us menu.

SHOULD I BRING MY ITEMS ON HANGERS OR FOLDED?

Hangers work best for most items, but are not required. Please do not bring your items in a suitcase.It is up to you to prepare your items so that they are ready for a new owner to wear. They must be without odor or stains, in perfect repair. We do not provide de-linting, steaming or tailoring services, and will turn away items that require attention.

AM I ABLE TO RETRIEVE ITEMS THAT DONT SELL?

Yes, you are welcome to retreive any unsold items within 7 days after the end of your consignment. Items not retrieved 7 days after your pick up date become the property of the shop. Please plan to spend a few minutes finding your items on the racks as we do not automatically pull your items.

MAY I RETRIEVE MY ITEMS BEFORE THE END OF THE CONSIGNMENT?

Retrieval prior to the final week of your 2 month consignment may result in a per-item Early Retrieval fee. If you are not comfortable selling your items at discounted prices, we would rather you didn't consign them.

DO YOU DONATE UNSOLD ITEMS TO CHARITY?

Yes, we partner with a couple of local charities to put unsold items to good use and fill local needs. We cannot provide you with donation receipts, however.

WHICH ITEMS SELL BEST AT REFLECTIONS?

Our customers are quite varied, but they all enjoy finding great quality merchandise at deep discounts. The items that fly out the door here are unique and artistic, or classic and hard to find. We accept plenty of items that are contemporary casual, cute and oh-so-wearable! Please see our lists of brands we do and do not accept on our About Us menu.

DO YOU BUY OUTRIGHT?

We do not purchase items outright.

I AM MOVING, CAN YOU TAKE ALL MY ITEMS AT ONCE?

We do not have storage and cannot handle a large volume from one consignor of multiple seasons of items. We can work with you to help decide which items to consign and make a plan. Please phone us!
