Finders Keepers Boutique and Menswear Consignment Policies

Finders Keepers Boutique & Menswear
Consignment Policies

Thank you for considering us for your consignment needs! Here's how we work:

Terms of Contract (Updated)

1.       Consignor split is based on the actual SELLING price of the items and are as follows:

a.        $1 - $49             = 40% consignor / 60% store
b.       $50 - $99           = 45% consignor / 55% store
c.        $100 - $199       = 50% consignor / 50% store
d.       $200 and up      = 60% consignor / 40% store

2.       Items are kept in the store for 60 days and are subject to donation after the 60th day.   All items are subject to discretionary markdowns anytime during the consignment period.  There is no set markdown policy.  Expired items are either donated to charity or sold in charity sales in which all proceeds are donated to charity.  If consignor wishes to pick up unsold items, it is the consignor’s responsibility to keep up with his/her account and contract end dates.  Items should be picked up prior to the expiration date. The obligation to find a consignor’s items on the floor belongs solely to the consignor. No exceptions.

3.       Consignments are accepted Monday-Saturday and must be in at least an hour before closing time. Consignors have two options for dropping off items:

·         Drop & Run – Consignor will leave items at the store to be processed.  All items will be assessed and processed and accepted items will be distributed to the appropriate store for optimal selling potential.  Unaccepted items are donated charity and no tax receipt is available.  

·         Stay & Wait– Consignor will wait in the store while items are assessed. Unaccepted items will be returned immediately, accepted items will be processed offsite and then will return to this location for their consignment period.  Drop-offs must be within the 25 item limit, and arrive on hangers at least an hour before closing.  Accepted items with major flaws found upon further inspection will be donated to charity and no tax receipt is available. 

4.       Jewelry is not consigned unless valued at $100 or more.  All other jewelry is bought outright at 20% of the resale price.  All jewelry is assessed and processed off-site to ensure proper re-sale value is established.  Once jewelry items have been assessed, consignor will be contacted with an offer for the items Finders Keepers intends to purchase.  This offer may be accepted or declined and all unaccepted items will be returned if desired.  Jewelry purchases are limited to 25 pieces at a time and jewelry for consideration may be dropped off any time the store is open. 

5.       Checks are mailed the first week of each month for accounts with a balance exceeding $40.  Twice a year checks are mailed for accounts with a balance exceeding $20. Each mailed check will incur a $1 mailing fee. Consignor may check account any time during regular store hours, and may pick up any available balance during regular store hours.

6.       There is a $12 annual fee to be a consignor, and it includes 24/7 online consignor account access. Items are subject to a standard markdown process as well as sales, discretionary markdowns, item fees, and buyer's fees.  Buyer fees are taken prior to computing the consignor split. 

7.       Finders Keepers is not responsible for damaged, missing, or stolen merchandise. Items deemed inauthentic (“fake” or “knock-off”) are immediately removed from the premises. Damaged items are immediately donated. Items under either circumstance are not available for return to consignor and a tax receipt is not available.

Any and all consignment rules are subject to change. Our partnership is based on mutual respect. Consignors who become adversarial with the staff of Finders Keepers will have their consignment accounts closed. Please do not be offended if we do not accept your items as our skilled staff must rely on past and present experience to determine what will sell in our store.

We have a large database of consignors and cannot make exceptions to any of our policies. We must be very selective in the merchandise we accept for consignment, so please do not be offended if your items are not accepted. We only want the best for our shoppers. Our consignment partnership is based on mutual respect. Any consignor who becomes adversarial with the staff of Finders Keepers will have their consignment account closed.

Spotlight on the Dresser: A great utility piece

Dressers come in all styles and sizes: painted, unpainted, antique, mid-century, rustic and modern. This piece of furniture can do a lot more than hold clothing so let’s step out of the box and consider some other uses for this versatile piece of furniture.

At waist height, a dresser can be used as a changing table in a nursery. Supplies such as diapers and baby wipes can easily be stored in the drawers along with onesies, rompers and pjs.

In an entry way, this piece can store hats, gloves, umbrellas, spare keys, sunglasses and other essentials needed as you head out for the day. Top with a lamp and a fun tray for mail and you have a happy and tidy space when you return each day.

In an office, a dresser can store extra paper and office supplies. A deep drawer can hold extra toner and ink while a top drawer can hold bills to be paid, mail waiting to be read.

A dresser by the back door or mud room can hold shoes, boots and rain gear as well as book bags and homework.

Put a dresser in a spare bedroom to hold wrapping paper and supplies along with gifts purchased ahead of time.

Put a small dresser next to your piano to hold sheet music and music books. Sort them by genre and have a drawer for each making it easier to find when looking for a particular tune.

Finally, use a dresser in the dining room for storing tablecloths and other linens. Use the top as a bar or as a buffet.

Don’t overlook all a dresser can do to keep your house organized and stylish. It’s probably one of the most useful pieces of furniture you can own, so own many and put them to work.
Check out a few of the dressers we have at our Furnishings location:


Menswear Trend: Plaid

Menswear Trend #3

 Plaid shirts truly never go out of style for men and this fall, they are on the must have list for menswear.  Plaids from Columbia and North Face are always a hit and wear like steel. Gap and J. Crew feature this fashion staple in popular color combinations as does Old Navy. Lands End is known for classic plaids that never go out of style. Flannel plaids have made a comeback and are great for weekend wear. Your favorite brand of shirt is bound to have a plaid shirt you’ll “must-have” for your fall wardrobe.
