How are prices determined?
Prices are set by the consignor. We suggest prices 20-35% of the original retail price. Larger sizes tend to sell at the higher end and smaller sizes tend to sell on the lower end of this range. Put together outfits when possible as they will sell better than separates. Please check out our pricing guidelines for additional recommendations
