How is the item priced?
We price the items to sell with pricing that is fair to both buyer and seller. Our goal is to sell your quality items for maximum profit and as quickly as possible. Our staff sets the price, based in part on their knowledge of the market, as well as researching prices on the Internet. At Renaissance Consignment Boutique, each item stands on its own merits. Factors such as brand, style, age, condition, demand, and past selling history all affect the price we will ask. We encourage you to point out expensive and unique items, as Renaissance Consignment Boutique will work with you on the pricing of these special items.

Do I pay a fee to consign?
There is a one-time fee of $25.00 to set up your consignment account. This fee will be deducted from your first item sold.
Do you sell online?
Yes, Renaissance Consignment selects certain items to place on their online web store. Should your items qualify for the web store, and you desire them to be listed you will be charged a 1% listing fee based on the initial listing price. This fee is charged for the labor involved in the listing process and is charged against your account whether the items sells or not. This service will provide you the highest possible exposure for selling your items with exposure to a worldwide audience.
Do you accept designer items?
Yes! Designer purses, shoes and accessories sell very well. Because it is illegal to sell fakes and knock off, we require you, our consignors to guarantee in writing that the items are authentic and that you will legally stand behind this guarantee. If you received items as a gift or uncertain of the history we ask that you don’t bring the item into the store.
