MySistersCloset.com advises individuals who are planning to consign items in its stores to follow the 3 C's criteria for clothing, which are cute, clean and current. "Cute" items are items that are brand-named designer and ready-to-wear apparel including shoes, accessories and handbags with a minimum retail value of $50. Examples would be Chanel and Louis Vuitton.
Make sure the items are clean, meaning they are like-new and stain-free. This is required so items can directly be placed on the racks after the exchange. Items must be current, so they cannot be older than 4 to 5 years, and must still be in like-new condition.
After verifying that all items meet the criteria, there are two options for consignment. The company offers a free shipping kit that you can request through its website at MySistersCloset.com/Consignment. After receiving a shipping kit, send the items to My Sister's Closet at 4869 North 20th Street, Phoenix, AZ 85016.
If you live in the Phoenix or San Diego area, you can walk into any My Sister's Closet location, and consign directly in the store. To find a location near you, visit MySistersCloset.com/Locations. The company typically offers 45 percent of the selling price in cash, or 55 percent of the selling price in store credit that is redeemable at any location or online.
