2nd Time Around and Turnstyle sell items on consignment as of 2015. Both companies have multiple locations in several major metropolitan areas across the United States and follow similarly stringent policies when accepting articles of clothing to consign.
2nd Time Around offers locations in 12 different states, with approximately 40 locations in total. On its website, 2nd Time around provides the following criteria for accepting clothing items to consignment: recognizable premium designer names, seasonality, current styles within the last two years, handbags and shoe styles purchased no more than five years prior to consignment, and dry-cleaned or laundered with no rips, stains or obvious wear.
The store also provides a list of accepted designers and brands but lists some of its top-selling designers, such as Theory, Helmut Lang, J Crew Black Label, Alexander Wang & T Alexander Wang, Vince, Chanel, Burberry and Givenchy. Consumers can expect to see items priced at approximately 30 to 40 percent of original retail prices, with some particularly high-demand items selling as high as 65 percent of their original values.
Turnstyle operates similarly to 2nd Time Around. This store accepts similar products but also offers a broader range of items. For example, in addition to men's and women's clothing, Turnstyle also offers children's clothing along with home accents and furniture. Turnstyle operates stores in 20 locations across three states.
