We want to buy your vintage (20+ years old) clothes. Below is a list of the types of items we look for. If you have something that is not on the list, but you think we might be interested in it, you can still feel free to bring it by! Contact with any questions. No appointment is necessary unless you need to schedule a time to sell outside of business hours. 

The process: You are welcome to bring in as much as you can carry. (Larger orders make take longer depending on store traffic.) From your items, we will select the pieces we believe we can sell and give you a cash quote for them equalling approximately 40% (50% in store credit) of our projected in-store price. Cash is paid out on the spot. Store credit can be kept on file for later use. Please plan on taking back with you any items we do not select, as we do not yet have an outlet for bulk donations. 

Please understand that we curate our vintage collection to suit a specific aesthetic. If we pass on your beloved vintage item(s), they may simply not fit our brand but likely would be very valued and cherished at another vintage store or online. That said, we would love the opportunity to see what you have and to adopt your pieces into our collection. You may be surprised at what we take!
