How it Works

Basically, you bring us your gently used clothing and accessories, we sell it on your behalf, and take a cut.

 

Why Trove?

When consigning with Trove, not only do you get cash in your pocket for what you bring in, we also offer a 20% discount to those that spend their consignment balance back in the store.

If you prefer, items can be approved prior to drop-off via email. Photos and descriptions can be sent to [email protected].

The condition of items can be difficult to assess via pictures, please inspect all items closely to make sure they are in sellable condition (i.e. not too worn, no rips, stain, etc.).  Any items that we are not able to sell due to condition must be picked up within one week (we are very limited on storage space), after which they will be donated.

For designer items, we work with a third party authenticity verification company. Please note that there is a $25 fee for any items which are confirmed to be non-authentic.
