How To Consign

Karen’s Kloset accepts designer and better label items in “like new” condition. All consigned apparel must be freshly laundered, wrinkle free, and on hangers. We accept only current fashions in new, ready to sell condition. Shoes, handbags, and other accessories are welcomed in “like new” condition. Items in plastic bags & items not freshly laundered cannot not be accepted.

DROP AND RUN is available 7 days a week for existing consignors. We will go through your items first come, first serve. Accepted items will appear on your account and no-thank you items will be donated to charity. In season items will be consigned while out of season items will be credited at current off season rates.

Drop and Shop is available 7 days a week for clients with 30 items or less on hangers. We will go through your items when you bring them in (first come,first serve). Any “no thank you’s” will be returned at that time. We reserve the right to donate to charity any items that are later discovered to be unacceptable and/or “No Thank You’s” that are unclaimed at the close of business that day.

Appointments are available for clients with 30+ items or for those looking for a cash on the spot option. You must call ahead.
