Consignment Terms

Item consideration

In terms of what items we’re likely to accept for consignment, we’re always on the hunt for:

  • Any luxury or contemporary fashion brands (check our list of currently stocked designers if you’re unsure!)
  • Accessories such as handbags, jewellery, belts and scarves
  • All types of shoes

There is a definite market for certain fabrics (i.e. silk, cashmere, wool or leather) and staple pieces like trench coats but we’ll always fairly evaluate anything offered.

Because of the nature of our business (secondhand designer and sustainability/mindful consumerism) we are unable to accept the following:

  • High street brands
  • Out of season items (i.e. thick knitwear in summer or thin sleeveless tops in winter, purely because they’re unlikely to sell within the two month period)

Vintage and/or unbranded pieces will be considered on a case by case basis.

Item collection

Once we’ve agreed to take your items we can arrange to collect them from you at the earliest convenience, free of charge. Or, if you live in the local area and are able to, you can drop your items into the shop personally.

Unsold items

Any items unsold at the end of the three month consignment agreement will be taken offline and removed from the shop floor awaiting your collection or a return agreement.

Commission rate

We operate at the industry standard of 50% of the final sale cost. Payments will be made 28 days from the date the item is sold to allow for any returns.

Price Reductions

Once we have agreed on a price it is final, and your item(s) will not be valid for any offers or discounts available online or in-store. As we operate across a number of platforms you may find your item listed for sale at a slightly higher price elsewhere (i.e. luxury resale website Vestiaire Collective) but this is to counteract handling fees — the final price recieved will always be equal to the agreed upon amount.

If you have any further questions about the consignment process, feel free to email us at shop@love-alice.co.uk and we’ll get back to you within 24 hours.
