We buy vintage clothing!
Are you looking to sell some vintage clothing that's taking up space in your closet? Or perhaps your aunt or grandmother gifted you some of her things that you'd like to pass on? We buy vintage and would be happy to take a look at what you have.
What We Buy
We specialize in women's vintage clothing, accessories (jewelry, scarves, purses), and sometimes home goods. Vintage is defined as anything 20 to 100-years-old, and anything older than 100 years is considered antique.
We look for items that are in good, wearable condition, or items that will only take a bit of work to sell. Think: a quick wash or sewing on a button. We do not buy items that have extensive staining or wear, or anything that will need a great deal of repair before it's in sellable condition. If your item DOES need to be repaired or laundered prior to sale, keep in mind that we will factor this into the offered price.
What We Don't Buy
Some things that were popular 50 years ago just aren't going to sell as well today. A few examples of things we find difficult to resell are: suits, hats, wedding gowns and some formal dresses, most plain purses, and shoes from earlier than the 1970's.
How It Works
If you are in Memphis, you may drop your pieces off at the shop at 427 N. Watkins during our regular business hours or at a pre-arranged appointment. Please contact us to confirm a time before you do so. If you are outside of Memphis, you are welcomed to ship items to us, but please keep in mind that you will be responsible for any initial or return shipping charges. We really prefer to see items in person before purchasing them, but we may make exceptions in some cases.
We will typically need at least 24 hours to properly evaluate, research, and value your piece(s), but we will let you know if we anticipate taking longer. Once we determine a retail price, we will typically offer 30% cash paid via Venmo or Paypal, or 50% in store credit to be used online or in person at the shop.
Please note that a great deal of work goes into our valuations, and we consider a number of factors when pricing our merchandise. Some of these factors are: age, condition, brand name, rarity, desirability, "fit" within our target market, and "fit" within our current inventory.
We have taken items on consignment a few times before, but we don't make it a regular practice. If this is something you're interested in, please let us know.
