Consign your items with ws

To get the most out of consigning, here are a few tips:

We recommend all items have been purchased within the last 3 years. This is to keep with current trends and styles, and what shoppers are seeking. If you have an item older, you are welcome to email photos to formallyyoursfargo@gmail.com for consideration.

 

We take semi-formal and formal dresses and whole sets (no separates) for teens to grandmas. We do not accept children's or men's items, or any decor. We also accept accessories such as formal shoes (MUST BE NEW OR LIKE NEW & CLEAN and less than 3.5" height), purses, sash/belts, jewelry, shawls/boleros. No bras, shapewear, crinolines, or robes are accepted. We recommend contacting Once Upon A Child or Kinder Kloset for all children's items!

 

The items will be inspected for flaws, cleanliness, and suitability for the store’s needs. Items must be ready for sale and use, with no worries for the future owner about if any spots or stains will come out. Items must be clean, odor free, wrinkle free, and have no stains, holes, missing buttons, broken zippers, tears or torn seams, or pet hair. Please look over even if it was dry cleaned! These items must be in CLEAN resale ready condition for us to consider acceptance.

 

We highly recommend putting your contract expiration date in your phone or calendar to receive a reminder! We do not contact at the end of the contract as there can be up to 600 active consignors at any given time. After the 15 business day grace period, remaining items are forfeited and become property of Formally Yours. Every consignor will leave the store with a copy of the signed contract.

 

Bridesmaids dresses are only accepted based on brand, color, straps, material, and re-use category. Velvet, satin, sateen, and bead/sequin are great re-use items. Strapless, chiffon or mesh, pastel or non-trendy colors are not. High end bridal store brands like Mori Lee, Sorella Vita, among others are amazing for re-use; though David's Bridal and Azazie are not. Everybody states they just look to "bridesmaids-y".

 

What we do not or may not accept:

Disclaimer: The Amazon brands change their names continuously and have a random selection of the same items by many "ship from" companies. We continue to monitor these brands and names, and will decline any we feel are simply mass China made, extremely inexpensive, or poor quality goods.
