Consignments are taken every day except on Wednesdays.
We prefer to go through your items with you. We know this isn't always possible, due to store activity and your own schedule. If you decide to do a drop and run, you will have 48 hours to retrieve any items not selected for consignment. Failure to do so will result in those items being donated to one of the local charities we support.
Items brought in for consignment must be in clean and sell-able condition. Items cannot have stains, pulls, missing buttons or broken zippers. Clothing must be odor free (smoke, perfume, musty) and free of pet hair. Please check all pockets before bringing items into the store. Dresses, blouses, dresses, skirts, etc. must be brought in on hangers for ease of examination. Items chosen for consignment will be transferred to our hangers with yours being returned. Handbags must be like new, please empty and vacuum interior. Shoes must show minimal wear with no toe prints, scuff marks, etc.
We reserve the right to choose the items we feel are right for our clientele, we may be selective based on our current inventory. We do not accept any store brands, including but not limited to: J.C. Penny, Kohl's, K-Mart, Target, Sears and Wal-Mart.
Knock-offs or faux items will not be accepted. In certain circumstances, we may accept these items if they are clearly marked as such. Certificates and receipts are very helpful for authenticating and pricing handbags.
B.O.T.R.A. will set prices based on demand, brand, style and condition.
This agreement shall have a term of 90 days from the date the items are tagged. If you wish to pick up any of your items before the 90 day contract expires, you must give a 3 day notice. We do reserve the right to make exceptions to the 90 day contract.
Once your items are entered into inventory and priced, you will receive an email with the information. Please make sure we have a current email address on file to avoid any delays in receiving your information.
Items consigned are subject to sales and/or markdowns during the contract period. After 60 days, the selling price will be reduced by 40%. Consignor will receive 50% of the selling price.
Checks are generated at the end of the month, once the account reaches $20. Checks may be picked up in the store the 1st through the 6th of the month. Any checks not picked up will be mailed out, by request, on the 7th of the month, with a $1.00 fee deducted from the account.
Account balances never expire and will be carried forward each month. A consignor can either use their account balance toward purchase in store, at any time, or can be paid in person if the account does not have current items on consignment.
At the end of the 90 day consignment period, any unsold items become property of B.O.T.R.A. If you prefer to pick up your items, it is your responsibility to call at least 3 days before the end of the 90 day period to have B.O.T.R.A. pull your items from inventory.
