Consignor Tips

Get the best return from your items by putting in a little time before bringing them in. Not only will this help ensure your items are selected for consignment with Bow & Co, but it will also give them a better chance of selling for top dollar.

  • Ensure clothing is clean and stain free.

    Children get messy but with a good wash, many messes on their clothing can be washed off! Be sure to follow washing guidelines for your items, i.e. hang to dry, wash inside out etc, to ensure your clothing stays in the best shape possible while in your care.

  • Think... "Would I buy this?"

    As you organize your items, put yourself in a buyer's shoes and as you look at each item, ask yourself, "Is this something I would pay money for in this condition?" If the answer is no, think "why not?" Is there something you could do to make it better? Give shoes a scrub, repair a loose button, etc. If the answer is still no, then it's best to add it to your donate pile instead.

  • Know what we sell.

    It's important to bring in clothing for the current or upcoming season. We have limited storage space, so we cannot hold onto apparel from multiple seasons at a time.
