SELLING & CONSIGNMENT PRICE BREAKDOWN//

Our process is as follows…we carefully review your items deciding which pieces work for Mercy. We will price each item based upon fair market value which reflects rarity, desirability and condition. We will then offer you a choice:

  • 35% for items purchased on the spot. We use check, Venmo or Paypal for purchases.
  • 45% store credit that we keep as a running tab. So whatever you make from the sale of your old items can go toward the purchase of “new” items in our shop.
  • Consignment: We offer consignment on items valued at $200 or more. Our breakdown for consignment is as follows:
    • 50% for items priced $200 - $499

We are fair and karma driven and we strive to create a non-judgemental environment when buying. We understand the connection to and emotion around clothes and seek to find the best home possible for your items. Don’t see what you have on our list of what we are looking for?
