How It Works

Consignment: How It Works

Before you consign:

Wash, sort and organize your items. Please avoid including items that have obvious flaws, like big stains, holes, tears or strong odours. Please do up all zippers, buttons, and snaps. 

If you want the best chance of not having to pick up items we cannot accept, please read our "Consignor Tips" page carefully. Take note of what we can and cannot accept.

Items should be put into a box, bin or reusable bag and marked with the following:

  • First and Last Name
  • Email
  • Phone Number
  • If you have more than one box/bin, clearly mark them as 1/3, 2/3, 3/3 etc. 

Ready to Consign:

By this point, you should have read our Terms & Conditions, but in case you missed it, please read them carefully. Once you are done, fill in our Consignor Form

We will email you to arrange pick up/drop off of your items. We offer FREE pick up to the residents of Pitt Meadows, Maple Ridge, Tri-Cities, and Langley.

Once we receive your items, they will be curated within 5 business days. We do our best to select items based on current trends, condition and demand. An email will be sent to you that will go over items we cannot accept, your total percentage for upfront payment (if you chose that option), as well as a photo of everything we will be consigning. Items we cannot accept will be donated or we will contact you to arrange pick up. You will choose which option you prefer on our Consignor Form.

Items will remain for sale for approximately 90 days. If items do not sell within this time period, they will be donated or returned to you, as per your choice specified on the consignor form. At the end of your consignment period, we will contact you via email with your payout/store credit information, a list of what sold, and to arrange a time to pick up anything that did not sell. Please pick up any unsold items within 7 days of the email being sent. All items remaining after this 7 day period will be considered abandoned and donated to a charity of our choice. 

Payment:

At the time of consignment you will choose a payment option. Based on your choice you will receive payment one of three ways:

1. Bow & Co will buy your items from you upfront for 30% of our retail price. Payment will be made via e-transfer within 24 hours of your response to the email we send after curating your items.

2. You consign your items and receive payment via e-transfer once your items sell for 40% of our retail price. If you would like to request payment prior to 90 days, please contact us at hello@shopbowandco.com.

3. You consign your items and receive 50% of Bow & Co's retail price in consignor's credit when your items sell.

 

Thrift: How It Works

This is an option for when you just want the clothes gone and you never want to see them again or deal with selling them yourself.

The process is pretty simple: Wash the clothes, put the clothes in a box (no plastic bags, please), then contact us to arrange a time to drop off or have us come pick it up. 

When we receive boxes of clothing, we will look over each item and select what meets our Bow & Co curator standards. Anything that doesn't will be donated to a charity of our choosing.
