In order to keep our inventory fresh and to sell items within the 120 day consignment period, we will progressively reduce our prices over time. Therefore, it is up to you to decide which price you are willing to pay. That’s right, we don’t accept offers, negotiate and haggle over prices, rather our tags fully disclose the dates of the future markdowns.
Here’s how to works:
- Each price tag shows the starting price on the bottom of the tag. A comparable retail price will also be stated if known.
- The brand will be referenced in the top left corner.
- The price is reduced by 10% every 20 days.
- Each tag clearly shows the dates that the future markdowns will occur.
- When the last date on the tag is reached, the item will stay at this price throughout the remainder of the consignment period.
- Some items will not show a markdown because they are brand new.
- Price reductions occur every day throughout the store. Items are priced to sell within 30 days, and many items sell during the first week.
