Our Destinations Consignment Criteria

We are interested in the following:

• Ladies’ clothing, accessories, purses, jewelry, and belts

• Items purchased within the last 2 years

• Plus size items in excellent condition

• Clean and Laundered, no tears, runs, holes or missing or broken parts

• Designer labels and items from upscale department stores and boutiques

• We will not accept labels such as Old Navy, George, Garage, Jessica Simpson, etc.

How It Works

1. Book your appointment by emailing Stephanie@curvycouture.ca

2. Bring in your items freshly laundered, ironed, neatly folded or on hangers. Items must be from a smoke-free environment as smoke often cannot be removed from clothing even after dry-cleaning or laundering.

3. We request a minimum of 5 items in order to open an account for you and a maximum of 30 items at the contract appointment. Once you have established yourself as a consignor at Destinations, you may drop off items without an appointment to a maximum of 10 items, 3 times during the consignment period.

4. Review and sign the consignment contract which explains all of our consignment expectations.

5. We will let you know which items we believe we can sell and which items we cannot. For those we can’t sell, you can choose to leave them with us and we will donate them to various African Missions as well as local refugee resettlement services or you can take them home with you.

6. Items will be evaluated and entered into our system, prepared to sell and will be on display within 2-4 business days.

7. Your items will be displayed at Destinations for up to 3 months. Items not sold after 30 days will be discounted by 25% of the appraised price. Items not sold after 60 days will be discounted by 50% of the appraised price.

8. Unsold items must be picked up at the end of your consignment period, day 90 to day 100 after your appointment. Anything not picked up after day 100 will be donated.

9. Payouts will be issued by E-transfers which will be sent on the 15th or 30th of each month. This coincides with the when contracts will end, on either the 15th or 30th of any given month. If you do not use online banking you will still be able to receive an e-transfer, the steps to assign the money to your account are articulated in the email and you will also be able to get assistance at your bank. When you request your payout, you will be given the password.

Consignors


Once you have your items together, contact Destinations to book an appointment. As a general guideline please view our Seasonal Schedule for what types of clothes would be relevant for the season we are in and what’s upcoming. During your appointment, we will set up your account and you’ll be assigned a customer number which will be unique to you and protects your identity as simply a number on the sales tag.

At the appointment, we will determine which items we will take on consignment! Items that you choose to leave with us that we’re not able to consign will be donated to a not for profit charity of our choice.

Your consignment items will be logged into the system and priced and put out on the sales floor within 2-4 business days.

Consignors receive 40% of the final selling price. The final selling price may vary from the estimated selling price due to sales promotions, length of time in shop, type of item, and general competitive retail market.

Payout is issued on the 15th or 30th of every month via E-Transfer. Kindly ensure the email on your account is current.
