Get your Worthy Girl knowledge on.
Just a few pixels below this very spot are all the answers to your most burning questions. I mean these answers are like totally life-changing. There’s some really good stuff down there, so don’t be afraid to give it a good look. Especially question #3 which is our favorite.
How often do new items get added to the sales floor?
We add about 100 new items to the floor every day.
How do I consign? How many items can I bring in at a time? Do i need an appointment?
You can bring in up to 20 (seriously, no more than 20) of your best seasonal items any day of the week and we’ll be happy to go through them while you shop around the store. We’ll give back the items we are unable to accept.
Which question is our favorite?
This one. Question #3. This is definitely our favorite.
What items do you accept on consignment?
Worthy Girl accepts (in season) very gently used or new with tags women’s clothing, shoes, jewelry, handbags, and accessories.
What don’t you take?
We cannot accept items with stains, holes, broken zippers, or pilling, nor items that appear to have committed a fashion faux pas.
What brands do you typically take?
Are there brands you don’t take?
We have historically accepted fewer items from brands such as J Jill, Chico’s, Talbots, Brooks Brothers, Dress Barn, Cache, Coldwater Creek, LL Bean, Appleseeds, Liz Claiborne, Ann Klein, Eileen Fisher, Sonoma, Croft & Barrow, Eddie Bauer.
I bought a designer bag on the streets of NY - you can sell it right?
No. We do not accept any knock-off designer items. If you have an authentic designer item that you’d like to consign, please bring along any original tags, protective bags and receipts if you have them available. You will be required to fill out an Authenticity Confirmation for any designer items left for consignment.
How old can the clothes be?
Although items can be older than last season, please keep in mind current styles and trends when deciding what to bring in for consignment.
Do the items need to be steamed/ironed and on hangers?
No, you do not need to iron or steam your items before you bring them in. Please bring your items neatly folded into bags/bins rather than on hangers, as it makes our check in process much easier.
Do I have a better chance of consigning items if I bring them in in shopping bags from stores with fancy names?
No, but it was a smart idea nonetheless.
When do you take Summer clothes…how about Spring, Fall, and Winter?
Fall Intake: August 1 – September 31
Winter Intake: October 1 – February 14
Spring Intake: February 15 – March 31
Summer Intake: April 1 – July 31
How do you determine what is acceptable for sale?
All items will be reviewed before being accepted on consignment. After ensuring they’re clean, odorless, pet and human hair free, we’ll assess their overall appeal and sell-ability. Worthy Girl reserves the right to refuse any item. We cannot agree to accepting anything on consignment over the phone. All items must be viewed in person by a Worthy Girl Intake Specialist.
Please check over your items carefully before bringing them in for consignment, as any item found to be damaged after initial intake will be discounted or donated/recycled for textiles without further notice, as stated in our contract.
How do you determine the price of an item?
Worthy Girl will determine pricing for items based on design, quality and retail value, and reserves the right to adjust the price of any merchandise. Items may be marked down at the discretion of Worthy Girl for sales, events, etc.
Will I be required to sign a contract?
I didn’t get an inventory email…why not?
You’ll typically receive an email within 1 week after your drop off. The email will come from email@example.com, so before contacting us, please check your email folder and SPAM folder to make sure you didn’t miss our message. If you are unable to locate, please call 978-969-2761 or email us (firstname.lastname@example.org) so we can confirm that we have the correct email address and resend your inventory.
If some items don’t sell within my 60-day consignment period, can I get them back?
Yes, you have 7 days from the end of your 60-day consignment period to reclaim your items. Once the 7 days have passed, you are no longer eligible to reclaim any merchandise. If you elect to reclaim any of your unsold items, please refer to your inventory email that you received a few days after your drop off.
From: “Worthy Girl” <email@example.com>
If you have a question about the pricing of any of your items, please contact us ASAP.
If you wish to reclaim any of your unsold items, please email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or call us (978-969-2761) on the “Expires On” date (found on the attached inventory list). We ask for 48 hours notice to gather your items. Items must be picked up within 1 week of the “Expires On” date, no exceptions!
