What can I sell? You may consign clothing, accessories, shoes, and handbags. We want our shoppers to know they will have quality merchandise to shop during our sale. Please do not be offended if we do not accept something due to stains or wear. Learn more on our Accepted Items and Brands pages.

What happens to my stuff that doesn't sell? When you tag your items, you will designate whether you want to pick up or donate your unsold merchandise. If you choose to donate your items, your items will become property of Ivory Consignment, and we’ll take care of bringing them to a local charity. If you want to pick up your unsold items, you must come during the scheduled pick-up time to retrieve them. Anything left after that time will be donated. We cannot make exceptions to this schedule, as we have to vacate the sale site promptly.
