Consignment in the Time of COVID-19

aka: The Pandemic Changes Everything

Incoming Consignments Temp. CLOSED

We’re still eager to accept consignment going forward, but we have yet not worked out how to do it reasonably and safely. By Mid-April we hope to re-open consignment acceptances. Watch this space.

Consignment in the Pandemic (Checking on Existing)

Please have patience with us — we are are dealing with a godzillion communications and tasks in a day as we make this huge transition. If you need to check up on your items, we ask that you email us so we can take the messages in turn.

Consignment in the Pandemic (Payments)

Month-end accounting goes on as usual. If you’d like to opt-in for e-transfer payments so you get your consignment payments faster, drop us an email and request that. :-)

Consignment we do not accept

  • NO HELMETS, with some rare exceptions for collectable or costume helmets.
  • anything ill-made or any item far past its prime. (If you’re getting rid of it because it’s no good any more, it’s probably no good to anyone.)
  • anything in damaged/non-functioning condition. (A $300 jacket with a non-functioning main zipper is worth $0 in resale value.)
  • any item with–how to put this politely– a stink. No stinky items. Especially smoke (cigarette or other fires), mildew & mothballs. Double especially, human sweat … and cat pee from when it was stored in the garage that one season. If in doubt, do drop it off to get it cleaned so you can get top dollar for your item (though ciggy smoke and mildew are near-impossible to remove). (Double-checking? Ask someone with a keen sense of smell to sniff it for you.)
  • anything we feel we can not sell for you (eg: a slow-moving type of product that we already have many of) Note that race suits are often a “no” because of lack of space.
  • quotidian leather clothing, shoes, or fashion boots. (If it’s not tough or sexy, it’s unlikely to find a home here.)
  • stolen goods (in fact, I have a list of things folks have reported missing, just in case we see them come in)
  • We’re not really taking Tshirts and shirts anymore. Unless they are rare or spectacularly… something special.
