Now open at 94 Brock Street in Downtown Kingston... the very first ClosettCandyy Consignment Shop!

We're currently looking for and accepting items that suit both the Summer & Fall Season. This includes all sleeve length blouses and t-shirts, lightweight sweaters, cardigans and blazers, denim, trousers, dresses and skirts, suiting, flats, heels, sneakers and boots in all sizes. We also accept handbags and small vintage scarves. We're no longer accepting sandals. We're taking a break from accepting any athletic wear, and no longer accept undergarments, jewellery, large scarves or swimwear. 

We also accept menswear!  Please review our Accepted Brands list below before sending your photos for all of the above. Continue reading for important details on how to consign with ClosettCandyy.

Thank you! We appreciate all of the excitement and support thus far.

How it Works

  • Step One: Please review the criteria below to ensure your items meet the consignment standards.

  • Step Two: Take photos of the items that you would like to consign and send them via email to jesse@closettcandyy.com. It's okay if you need to send multiple emails, but please keep the descriptions with the corresponding photos. If photos are too big to send over email, consider creating an iCloud Link, Google Drive Folder, or Google Photo Album to share with my email. I will send you a link to book an appointment if your items are what we're looking for. I won't send a link unless I know the styles, brands, and sizes you have. This is to save us both time and energy!

  • If you don't have time to take photos, please send me an email with a list of the brands, styles and sizes you would like to consign and I will follow up with a link to book an appointment.

  • Step Two Exception: If you don't have a phone or camera to take photos, please send an email letting me know what brands you have to consign and we can set up an in-store viewing. If you don't have an email, pop into the shop and our staff will let you know when I'm working and we can discuss next steps.

  • Step Three: Within one-four weeks of receiving your email, I'll approve certain items for the shop and let you know a good time to bring them in for an in-person viewing. Once the items are fully approved, they're tagged and inventoried within two weeks.

  • Step Four: After that, you'll receive an email from me with your inventory spreadsheet that also includes all details regarding payouts. All other payout information and important details about consigning with ClosettCandyy after you've dropped off your items can be found below.

  • IMPORTANT: Please refrain from following up before the four weeks or coming to the store to drop off your items before we've set up an appointment.

  • Please note: I do not send update about your items selling throughout the month, your spreadsheet is updated at the end of the month/first week of of the next month to highlight the items that sold in green. If you have no highlights, your items haven't sold yet.

**I'm currently taking a break from at-home viewings for the next few months, but am still booking in-store viewings. To set up a viewing, I first need to know what styles and brands of items you have, as well as a few photo examples to ensure it's worth our time. Please reach out to jesse@closettcandyy.com with the above information and I'll be in touch with a link for you to book a date and time. Max 10 items per in-person viewing. If you don't have email, see the "Step Two Exception" above. Thank you!

Consignment Criteria

The goal of ClosettCandyy Consignment is to offer my clients and customers the best quality, style and price (within reason) for second-hand clothing, shoes, and accessories while ensuring as much clothing as possible is diverted from landfills. Before reaching out, please inspect all items closely to make sure they are in sellable condition.

  • Items must suit the current season we're in and meet the accepted brand list (see below).

  • Items must be “like new” and not have any major damage (free of big holes, stains, and visible wear and tear). Small holes that could be mended are sometimes okay.

  • Items must be freshly laundered, neatly folded or hung. Hangers are returned upon drop off.

  • Items must be free of cat/animal fur, purses cleaned out, shoes must be cleaned + free of scuffs.

  • Items must be approved via email exchange and an appointment arranged for drop-off or pickup unless we are scheduling an in-person viewing session. Either way, items cannot just be dropped off at the store to be looked at.

  • A limit of 10 items per session to keep the load manageable.

How to Consign with ClosettCandyy

Getting Started

To consign with ClosettCandyy, please reach out via email to jesse@closettcandyy.com with photos and a list of the items you would like to sell that match the criteria. Please include in the list: the price you paid, brand name, size, condition of the garment (approx how often it's been worn) and photograph items on a white or light background in a well-lit room. It's okay if you don't remember the price you paid either, I can do some research. See below for an example!

closettcandyy consignment photo example.

Item 1: Olive Green Utility Jacket

I Paid: $150

(if you don't know the price, that's okay! Send the brand, and I can look it up)

Brand: Cream

Size: Small

Condition: Like New. Worn 5 - 10 times

The Review Process

Within two-three weeks of receiving your email, I'll review the items you've sent along and get back to you with a list of my selections. Please do not follow up until the three weeks have passed, as this just adds to the pile of emails and doesn't get it answered any faster. I review everyone's email to see what styles and sizes have come in, and I select what works well together or what we're missing at the time.

Your items can be brought to the shop at 94 Brock Street, or can be picked up for a small fee depending on where you live. All appointments will be made via email. Please don't drop off your items until we've set a date and time—they will not be accepted if you drop off at your own convenience.

Payment Breakdown

Most items are priced at one half of the retail value or half of what the consignee paid ($60 = $30), unless the item hasn't been worn. In this case, the sale price would be 60-75% of the original or paid price. Below is the cut you would take based on the pricing given to your item. The breakdown is per item sold, not per total payout.

 

  • items priced $1-$499 = you recieve 40%

  • items priced $500+ = you receive 50%

E-transfers are sent alphabetically at the beginning of the month for the previous month. It takes about a week to get through everyone due to a $3,000 transfer limit per day, so you can expect your payment within the first week of the following month—if your items sold. For example, payouts for the month of January are sent the first week of February.

Please note: I don't answer emails about what items have sold, I don't send updates about your items selling, nor does our staff know what items have sold and when (unless the tags are still there from items that have sold). All of this information is kept in your spreadsheet, which is a living document within Google Sheets. To know if an item has sold, you will need to check your spreadsheet either at the end of the month, or about a week after the month has ended. Your spreadsheet is updated at the time of your payout—items that have sold are highlighted in green. If you can't view your spreadsheet, you will need to create a Gmail account and request access to view it once you've made an account. Google can help you do this! 

In the case of theft..

Unfortunately, people can be jerks and steal from small, local businesses. We keep a close watch on our store, have higher ends goods locked away, and are protected by an alarm + camera system, but ultimately we are not responsible for any stolen goods that are consigned with ClosettCandyy.
