How does the consignment process work:

Email care@careingscloset.com to schedule an appointment to consign. Once your items are brought into us and approved, they will be added into our inventory system. Please allow 2-3 weeks after drop off to receive itemized listing with pricing for your items. They are kept in inventory on a consignment basis and the consignor receives a percentage of each item sold monthly for the month prior. 
Kindly note that payout happens between the 1st - 31st of every month for the month prior. For example, if any items are sold in the month of June you'll receive payment between July 1st - 31st for your May owing with an itemized listing of what sold, the sale price, and your % owed. 
Can I pull back my items at any point?
We ask for 6 months to hold onto the items, however, should you wish to pull any items before the first 90 days, (with 7-10 day notice) we will charge a $250 pull-back fee. After 90 days, if the item hasn't been sold you can request it back at any point without a penalty fee. After 6 months if not picked up, they will be automatically donated to our charity partner.
How we classify the condition of our items:
New with tags - Item is brand new, never been worn, with TAGS ATTACHED
Pristine 10/10 - Item is in perfect condition, item is not used or worn
Excellent 9/10 - In excellent used condition with little to no appearance of wear
Great 8/10 - In very good used condition. Slight wear and appearance of use.
Good 7/10 or below - In good used condition. Condition is reflected in the price
