CALLING FOR CONSIGNMENTS
Do you have items at home that you no longer use or never really used? Would you like them to move on to someone who will enjoy them?
We are looking for such items and would be happy to display and sell them for you at THE SPACE. Free up your cabinets, drawers and closets and bring all those interesting pieces over to our Clothes Rack, Vintage Corner or Elegant Junk section.
If you’d like to get an idea of what we’re looking for, read on!
Our Elegant Junk corner contains household items that are useful and decorative and are in complete working order. These are all items that someone would love to own. Some examples are chinaware, glassware, table linens and wall hangings.
The Clothes Rack
Items on the Clothes Rack are new or nearly new secondhand women’s clothing. These range from formal evening wear to smart casual wear. All items are freshly laundered, pressed and in excellent condition.
Update: August 11, 2020
We cannot take anymore clothing until August 16 as our racks are full.
As of August 16, we will resume accepting clothing of up to 10 pieces per customer and will continue to operate on a "first come, first served" basis until we replenish the racks.
Timeless pieces that will never go out of fashion such as nightgowns from the fifties or sixties, gloves, handkerchiefs and hand embroidered tablecloths.
We accept a range of other items as well, so if what you have to offer was not mentioned above, contact us anyway and we will see what we can do.
For reasons of hygiene, we do not accept shoes, swimsuits, underwear or other “personal” items.
How does it work?
First, you need to buy at least one consignment item from the store. This is to show that you are part of the "bring and buy" cycle. Then...
You can bring in your clean and ironed items anytime we're open. In light of Covid 19, everything must be washed/laundered and ironed regardless of usage.
You can choose whether to price with us, or to let us price your items. You can view our pricing guidelines here.
While you are at the shop, we will give you a short online form to complete, or you may fill it out and submit it prior to visiting the store.
We then list all your items and prices of the pieces we can take, and send you a copy by email. We display your items once we receive confirmation of the prices.
At the end of every month the list is updated and you will be notified when your items are sold.
Payments for items sold are settled at the end of the first week of each following month. 50% of the sale price goes to you, 40% to THE SPACE and 10% is an advertising fee to enable us to advertise professionally .
Items follow this consignment rotation before being returned.
THE SPACE is also happy to receive charity donations. We have a charity account and we donate the proceeds to Life Vision for Development.
We really appreciate your help in encouraging everyone you know to reduce, reuse and recycle!
