Fashion: What We Accept
We are an UPSCALE Women’s clothing destination. We only accept clean, modern, quality women’s clothing and accessories.
YOU CAN DROP OFF OR MAKE AN APPOINTMENT – but there’s a difference!
Ladies fashion items that are clean and in great shape can be dropped off without an appointment and will be processed as soon as possible. Consignor has 7 days to pick up items that we do not accept. Only items that we price at $80 or more will be returned to you if they do not sell. Items listed at less than $80 that do not sell or items that we do not accept and are not picked up, become the property of ChicàBOOM and will be used to raise funds for charity.
An appointment can be made to consign clothing to ChicàBOOM if you would like your unsold items returned to you. Appointments may be made between 10:00 and 3:30 and Thursdays until 6:30.
We accept CURRENT styles, in season, better dresses & designer clothing in excellent condition — no rips, stains, pulls, etc. – yes we’re picky! We mainly sell tops, jackets, dresses,coats and accessories such as purses, shoes, jewellery and scarves. Clothes must be VERY CLEAN, pressed and on hangers — NO WRINKLED CLOTHING. Bags and boxes of clothing are not acceptable. Everything needs to be modern and desirable- for example we are NOT accepting calf-length skirts, anything with large shoulder pads or pants with pleats. We do not accept full length formal wear or business suits. We only accept up to 3 pairs of shoes per consignor … and we’d love to sell your bag! Good purses, especially larger ones and designer brands are very popular items. Brands such as Chanel, Coach, Prada, Louis Vuitton, and Fendi sell the fastest! However, we DO NOT knowingly accept or sell knock-offs. We also love antique and interesting hats!
Consignment by appointment: We will only accept up to 12 clothing or décor items at a time, plus 3 pairs of footwear, 6 purses and 3 pieces of jewellery at each appointment. We will not be able to pick 12 out of a number of items, but we’ll pick the first 12, so please bring your best!
Don’t be offended if we don’t accept your clothing – our standards are defined by what our customers want. Please don’t be discouraged about bringing other items in. Our store survives by taking consignments as well as finding customers for the items.
If you can buy it new for $40 then none of us will make enough profit to be worth while. Please donate these items to a charity – make the world a better place.
Fashion items are held for 60 days and are discounted 20% after 30 days.
