Thanks so much for your interest in consigning with us; we are excited to be your partner in fashion! We want to make the experience as simple and fun as possible, so we've put together this Consignment Agreement that serves as a guide to consigning with us. Please feel free to give us a call or send us an e-mail as well with any additional questions--we love to hear from our clients!

Linda's Stuff Consignment Agreement

There are NO fees charged!
You receive 62% of the selling price for items that sell for $999 and below, 75% for items that sell for $1,000 and 80% for items that sell $5,000 and above. Always remember, there are NO FEES at Linda's Stuff!

Client Referral Policy
We love getting the seal of approval from our clients, so we're happy to reward those who refer us to their friends! Here's how it works: Clients are paid a one-time bonus of $25 per new client referred once the new client receives their first sales check.

Items we accept for Consignment
Linda's Stuff focuses on high-end designer women's, men's and children's clothing, shoes, scarves and other fashion accessories. Jewelry also sells amazingly well, as do home goods, and collectibles. Linda's Stuff believes in thinking outside the box, so definitely let us know if you have other hidden treasures―the sky's the limit! We prefer the items to be gently used or new. We accept high-end designers (i.e. Chanel, Prada, Gucci, Hermes, etc), but we also list many contemporary brands (i.e. Tory Burch, Milly, DVF, Theory, etc) so feel free to contact us with your items, and we'll let you know if we can list them for you. Don't be afraid to ask questions. We are always happy to help and can be reached Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. EST.

Items we don't accept for Consignment *SEE BOTTOM PAGE*
We do not accept brands such as Gap, Old Navy, Jones New York, Forever 21, Talbot's, Ann Taylor, Linda Allard Ellen Tracy, Dana Buchman, etc. While they're great brands, they just don't have a high re-sale value on eBay. This is only a sampling of the brands we do not accept―we would love to consult with you about the items you're looking to sell prior to sending, so please feel free to give us a call to chat about your fabulous items!

Complimentary UPS Pick-Up or UPS Pre-Paid Labels

  • As a service to our clients, we provide complimentary pick-ups of your items. We can set up a free UPS pick-up for our clients within the continental US. Here are some important tips to help you through the process:
  • We can email you UPS pre-paid labels. All you need to do is print them out and take them to a UPS drop off location or schedule a pick up using these pre-paid labels
  • UPS can pick up at your home or office Monday-Friday. They will come anytime between 9am-7pm and the driver will bring the pre-paid label (Unfortunately you cannot request a specific time). It is important to schedule the pick up at least 24 hours in advance
  • Clearly label the box with your return address and our shipping address: 330 South Warminster Rd, Ste 340 Hatboro, PA 19040
  • We strongly suggest that you put your items in a plastic trash bag and include your full contact information as well as the Linda's Stuff information and place them in the box. This will aid in preventing any loss of items should your box be damaged
  • Please make sure to securely seal your box. Please know that our pick-ups are not insured and we are not responsible or liable for packages that are lost. However we have appropriate tracking information to make sure it's safely on its way

Linda's Stuff will contact you:

  • When your boxes arrive.
  • When your items are inventoried (you'll receive an inventory with our proposed starting prices and any items we are un-able to sell).
  • When your items are listed (providing you with your own secure personal code and simple directions on how to follow your auctions!).

The Process
The process of receiving boxes, creating an inventory of your items, photographing them and listing them typically takes about three to five business days. If you haven't heard from us within two weeks of receipt of your items, feel free to give us a call or send over an e-mail!

Consignor's Representations, Warranties and Indemnification The consignor hereby warrants to Linda's Stuff that it has good and marketable title to the products none of which are subject to any liens or other encumbrances and further warrants to Linda's Stuff that the products consigned pursuant to this Agreement are not in violation of any trademark, copyright, or other proprietary right of any third party, state or federal law, or administrative regulation. The consignor hereby agrees to indemnify and hold harmless Linda's Stuff from all damages, suits, litigation, awards and costs, including but not limited to attorney's fees that may arise out of the display or sale of the products for any reason whatsoever, including but not limited to civil or criminal suits over authenticity, legality, ownership, infringement of copyright or trademark or any other claim or litigation.

Authentication
We at Linda's Stuff pride ourselves on only selling 100% authentic designer items. We reserve the right to work with professional authenticators for your items at our discretion. Should an item be deemed inauthentic or the authenticity cannot be conclusively determined, you will be charged a $20 fee (per inauthentic item) on the next scheduled invoice to cover the authentication expense we incurred. Should there be items we are unable to sell due to authenticity issues, return shipping is at your expense ($20 per box). If you do not wish to have items returned to you, we will gladly donate them on your behalf.

Selling Strategies
With over fourteen years' experience of turning fashion assets into cash for our clients; we implement various strategies to help your items sell their best: Auction: The majority of our items begin their run at Linda's Stuff with a 7 day auction at a price that encourages bidding among interested buyers.
Fixed Price Best Offer: This is a strategy frequently used that allows shoppers to achieve instant buying gratification by "winning" an item immediately without participating in an auction. Buyers can also submit offers for consideration, and only reasonable offers are accepted. Free Shipping Promotion: As a company, we offer free shipping on ALL items that we sell. We find that by waiving shipping fees, items become more appealing to the buyer. In fact, studies have shown that buyers are more willing to purchase an item when free shipping is presented. In order to allow for free shipping and not affect you as our clients, $10 dollars is automatically added to the selling price. For example, an item that initially has a resale value of $19 would be listed as $29 free shipping. Therefore when you see these items on your invoice, you'll notice that $10 had been deducted from the final sale price. (By providing free shipping and adding $10 to the initial price, we strive to engage more buyers and create a successful selling experience for you! It's a win-win!
Special Sales: As a way to help sell store inventory, we occasionally offer buyers 20% off some of our fixed price merchandise. These promotions have been proven to help your items sell, and they are a valuable method for earning you cash for your items.

Shill Bidding Policy
In accordance with the terms and conditions of eBay's policy, consignors are prohibited from participating in Shill Bidding, where consignor's bid on their own items with the intent to increase the selling price. In the event a consignor participates in Shill Bidding, Linda's Stuff reserves the right to take whatever action necessary to insure that the consignor and Linda's Stuff are in compliance with the terms and conditions of eBay's policy. This includes but is not limited to action to compensate for damages or fees and removal of the eBay listing.

Payment Process
Our payment system runs monthly and payments are made when you have completed sales between the first and the last day of every month. Your check and invoice will reflect the completed sales from the previous month, so if you have sales in February, you will be paid in March. Completed sales are those that have been paid for, shipped and feedback has been left (so we know the item will not be returned). Buyers have approximately two weeks before they are required to pay, so items that appear to sell one month, may not be considered completed until the following month. Items that buyers do not pay for are re-listed after the sale is disputed with eBay.
