      BEFORE YOUR APPOINTMENT

      Please review your items carefully prior to your scheduled consignment appointment for the following: 

      1. Stains. Please look at the underarm area for stains and, or, deodorant marks. For collared shirts and jackets, please check the inside of the collar for any discoloration. On long sleeved items, check the cuffs for stains and, or, discoloration. On long pants/jeans, please check hems. Formals and long dresses often have staining at the bottom/hem. If your item needs to be laundered, please do so prior to bringing them in for consignment.
      2. Buttons. Please check for missing buttons.
      3. Odor. Items with strong odors such as cigarette/cigar smoke, perfume, and/or moth balls will not be accepted. If your items do have a strong odor, please have them laundered prior to your visit.
      4. Pet hair. Please make sure all items are rolled and free of any pet hair. It’s good to note that adding a garment bag to your items will prevent any pet hair that may cling after transporting.
      5. Sequins/appliques. Please check for missing/loose sequins or appliqués.
      6. Rips/tears. Please check for any rips/tears especially for the zipper area in dresses/skirts.
      7. Current fashions. Please note that we only accept items that are current. A good rule of thumb is making sure item was purchased within the last 3-4 years. If your items still have retail tags attached, please leave them on. We can list a higher asking price for brand new items.
      8. Vintage clothing. We do accept high-end brands of vintage clothing, handbags and jewelry in good condition. Some Vintage brands our customers love are Chanel, St. John, Gucci, and Louis Vuitton. 
      9. Shoes. Please be sure to clean everywhere within the footwear including the bottoms and soles of the shoe. The cleaner or newer looking the item, the higher the returns.

      Our goal is to get the highest price for you, the consignor, while providing the highest standards of quality clothing and brands for our customer. We truly appreciate you entrusting Worth the Wait to sell your items!
