:: Trends asks that all clothing is brought in cleaned, wrinkle free, and on hangers. How you bring them to us is how we put them out on the floor.
:: Shoes, purses, and accessories can be brought in a simple laundry basket or tote bag. The more organized your items come in, the quicker the whole drop off process will go!
:: Want to consign jewelry? We simply ask that you bring us your shiny gems in a little bag of its own. Putting them in separate zip locks to prevent tangles will help us price your jewelry much quicker.
:: Beautiful clothing stuffed in garbage bags just makes us sad. No matter how gorgeous your items are, if they are not in salable condition when they come in, we unfortunately have to return them to you or donate them.
