When you bring in items for consignment at The Millionaire’s Daughter you have the option to wait while one of our staff members quickly goes through your boxes and returns any items to you that we feel we will not be able to sell.
If you are unable to wait while we go through your consignment you may be asked to pick up any unwanted consignments within 7 days of notification or your items will be donated to a local charity.
As you choose items to consign, ask yourself, “Would I buy it in its current condition?”.
If not, take a minute to dust, polish, clean or vacuum your item. We may not accept items that are not adequately prepared for sale.
All items for consignment must be clean and in prime condition; i.e. dirt, dust, and smoke free, not in need of any repair, and in good working order.

As a general guideline, consignment pricing is approx. 1/3 of original pricing, although it could be higher or lower based on condition, style, age, marketability etc.
