Consignor Frequently Asked Questions
We receive countless calls and emails from people interested in consigning, and the specifics of consigning. Therefore, we've put together a list of our most frequently asked questions.
What is consigning?
Consigning is a great way to earn money! It's a much less stressful alternative to Ebay and Craigslist. Consignors prepare, price and enter their items into our online inventory system. They tag each item, and then entrust their sales items to the Poshsicle Team for the duration of each event. Within 7-10 days each consignor will receive a check for a percentage of the items sold. Consignor can pick up what doesn't sell, and bring it to the next event.

What is a VIP Consignor?

What items can I consign at Poshsicle?
Poshsicle prides itself in the quality of items offered (therefore accepted). Formal wear, professional attire, and designer label clothing, shoes and accessories are what you'll find at our events. We don't accept items that are in less than excellent condition. Outdated, stained, ripped, broken, or incomplete items will be turned away at drop off. Visit our What to Sell section for a complete list.
Is there a minimum or maximum amount of items that we can consign?
Not any more!! Bring as many items as you can fit in your car :)
How should I price my items?
We recommend pricing gently used items at 50-70% of retail (depending on item, brand and condition), however pricing is completely up to each Consignor. That being said, the lower item prices are, the more likely they'll sell. We also advise our Consignors to discount their items, as many buyers come back on our ½ Off sale.
How do I tag my items?
Once Consignors register, they will gain access to our online portal. Here they will input their items details and prices. The portal will automatically create bar coded tags with the information submitted. See our Preparing Your Items page, for step-by-step instructions on tagging your inventory.
When do I drop off my items?
After registering, Consignors will have access to our online portal, where they can sign up for their drop-off appointments. All Drop Offs are at the sale location. Drop Offs are typically 1-2 days before the sale opens to the public. Upon drop off, each item will be closely inspected, to ensure it meets Poshsicle standards.
Do I get my hangers back?
Yes (kind of). We let our consignors take home the same amount of hangers they brought to their drop off appointments. We recommend using generic hangers, as we cannot guarantee that you'll get the same ones you brought in.
What happens to the items that don't sell?
Poshsicle consignors can either donate their unsold items to the Non-Profit with whom we're working (and receive a donation receipt) or pick up their items, and bring them back to the next sale.
Do consignors get to attend the Private Presales?
Of course! One of the perks of consigning with Poshsicle is that all consignors receive a pass to our Opening Night Private Presale. Get the great picks and buys before anyone else, and shop before the public. And now... bring a friend! All Poshsicle Consignors will receive 2 Presale Passes. Spread the wealth :)
