Consigning with Sola Lucy
We take consignment every single day, no appointment necessary! All we ask is that consingers respect our designated consignment hours and policies listed below:
Monday - Saturday, 11am-5pm
Monday - Saturday, 10am-4pm
We buy current, seasonal, new clothing, shoes, jewelry, and accessories. We enjoy receiving statement pieces, boutique brands, designer labels, and costume or fine jewelry. We accept all sizes and we take select vintage depending on condition and style (it needs to be pristine and able to blend in with a modern wardrobe).
We DO NOT take outdated styles, junior styles, formal dresses, career-wear, maternity, children’s clothing, underwear, bathing suits, or costumes.
Please look over your items prior to consigning to be sure they are free of stains (food, deodorant, makeup), loose threads, loose seams, pilling, excessive stretching, tears, alterations, missing buttons, missing stones, rust, stickers, and odors. We cannot sell items that are too worn and we cannot sell items that are out of season.
You are welcome to consign every day until one hour before closing. No appointment necessary and you can bring as many items as you’d like! We occasionally end consigning hours earlier in the day if we reach inventory capacity; please call before consigning to ask about hours: 510-526-8611 (Berkeley) 510-531-8611 (Oakland). Wait times vary depending on season and day of the week.
You will receive 40% of the selling price. All items are subject to a standard 30% price reduction after 45 days, of which you will receive 40% of the final selling price. Your credit never expires. Store credit can be applied to purchases or you can choose to receive payment at any time. If the amount is over $10 you will be paid via check.
We are able to mail checks. There is a $1.50 which is removed from your payout and checks typically take around three business days to process. You must contact us at the end of your contract to request a mailed check.
Store credit CANNOT be transferred between stores. We hand-write checks if you want to cash out from the store you are not currently visiting (eg, we can write a check for Berkeley credit while you are visiting our Montclair store and vice versa).
Length of Contract
We will keep your item for two months. You will NOT be notified when items sell during your contract. Check your balance any time by calling or emailing the store you consigned with.
After two months, you have the option to either pick up unsold items OR donate to Sola Lucy. Consignors who choose pick-up have one week to pick up unsold merchandise, otherwise the merchandise will be donated. Donations are sold on our discount rack or they are donated to a local charity. We are unable to provide you with donation receipts.
At Lucy’s discretion, select designer pieces that deserve another chance at selling are transferred to our alternate location for an additional two-month contract. You can elect to transfer/not transfer during consignment intake.
Pricing & Notifications
We typically price items 1/3 of their retail price unless otherwise specified (items with tags attached can be priced higher!). You will receive an itemized list with prices within 48 hours of consigning. Be sure to check your spam mail for this list. If you do not receive a list, please call or email us and we’ll resend the list.
Jewelry consignment is slightly different from clothing consignment at the Montclair store – we have a more robust selection of fine jewelry than our Berkeley location. Intake is handled solely by our jewelry specialist/manager (and artist!) on staff, Kelly.
Most jewelry is not entered with clothing, but is instead entered within two weeks of consigning to allow time for proper evaluation and pricing. Please call ahead of time to schedule intake with Kelly if you are consigning fine jewelry OR leave detailed information with staff if Kelly is not available. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for additional information about Montclair jewelry.
We are not responsible for lost or stolen items.
Sola Lucy is committed to offering all our clients excellent value and service. We strive to present and market your items to the best of our abilities in order to achieve the maximum return possible for you.
