UPDATE - COVID-19 CONSIGNMENT FAQ'S

Are you taking in new consignments during the Pandemic?

Yes we are currently accepting new consignments and doing direct buy-outs for select designer bags, jewelry, and accessories.  Please read our revised guidelines below to help us pre-edit.

Do you buy items if I don't want to consign?

For those who prefer a direct buy-out, we buy out individual items or entire large collections of luxury handbags, jewelry, and accessories.  At this time we are not offering buy outs for clothing or shoes. All buy outs are offered on a case by case basis and are not guaranteed for all items.  Please email photos including size, condition, and inclusions for a quote.

For our women’s store we are accepting higher end recent season Luxury and Contemporary designer label items. For our men’s store we are accepting recent items in the categories of Luxury, Contemporary, and Hype and do not accept business wear or suiting. 

We are a designer label-based business and are not accepting unbranded items or mall brands. We also edit based on condition and style so we do not accept dated or worn items in poor condition. Due to the volume of incoming footwear, shoes must be near-new or brand-new and from within the last 5 seasons. Designer label clothing must be clean and look as if not worn more than 10 times. We are not accepting bottoms such as pants or skirts at this time except from the highest luxury brands.

How are you receiving delivery of new consignments during COVID-19?

We prefer contact-free consignment so please send us an email with what you have and we can edit remotely.  We may request further information such as photos, condition, size, and inclusions.  Then you may book an appointment to drop off.  We are also offering Toronto curbside pick-up or shipping labels for select high value consignments.  For those who prefer to have items edited in store, we highly recommend contacting us by email first to save time and help us pre-edit brands or items we may not be accepting. 

Please email for the fastest reply during this time as staff are working limited hours and are not present on all days to answer phone calls.

CONDITION:

We ask that all items be brought in on hangers and in clean condition free of stains and odors so that they are ready to be put out on the sales floor. We do not accept items that look like they have been worn more than 10 times. Due to the volume of incoming footwear, we select only the most recent styles with least amount of wear. 

TERM:

We consign items for a minimum 90 day period or for the duration of the season. Transitional or non-seasonal items may be kept longer.

PRICING:

If the Pricer is not present at the time of your drop-off, we will issue you a receipt and will contact you within 2 business days.  We examine all items carefully for condition and authenticity and price items according to current resale market value. 

All items priced for resale at $100 and over are paid out at 50% for the Consignor upon sale. Items priced $99 and under are paid out at 40% to the Consignor upon sale.  Custom rates will be considered for exceptional high-value items such as select luxury handbags, designer fine jewelry and watches, haute couture clothing, etc... 

BUY OUTS:

For those who prefer a direct buy-out, we buy out individual items or entire large collections of luxury handbags, jewelry, and accessories.  At this time we are not offering buy outs for clothing or shoes. All buy outs are offered on a case by case basis and are not guaranteed for all items.  Please email photos including size, condition, and inclusions for a quote. 

AUTHENTICITY:

All incoming items will be examined for authenticity prior to being accepted for sale.  We begin with a preliminary physical inspection.  In instances where we require further supporting documentation and where the Consignor cannot produce an original purchase receipt for an item,  I Miss You Vintage will use Entrupy or another third party authenticator of our choice for verification.  A fee of $40 CAD for handbags and accessories, and $140 CAD for Hermes leather and $175 for Hermes exotics will be charged to the Consignor's account for items coming back as counterfeit. 

SALES and REDUCTIONS:

We do not automatically reduce prices. Our retail store has two end of season sales annually. January / February for winter items and July / August for summer items. At end of season, Consignors will be contacted to see if they are interested in reducing any remaining seasonal items. Participation is not mandatory.

WE LOOK FORWARD TO WORKING WITH YOU:

If you have any additional questions regarding consignment, please contact our retail store staff  and let us know what you have!
