HOW TO CONSIGN
Consigning with Ever Brighter is a simple way to clear out the excess, make extra cash and find some great deals. It also allows your clothing, accessories and décor to find a fresh purpose with new owners.
Consignors pay a consignor fee of $15, and earn between 60% and 80% of their sales. They also have an opportunity to shop the Ever Brighter sale before the general public. Consignors simply follow the steps outlined below, or they can take advantage of the full service option where Ever Brighter picks up and prepares consignors' items for them.

When do I pay my $15 consignor fee? Your fee will be taken out of your consignor profits at the end of the sale. You do not pay anything up front.
Can I share a consignor number? Absolutely. Just keep in mind that consignor benefits - such as pre-sale passes are per consignor number, and all items must be dropped off at the same time per consignor number. Additionally, profits will be paid to the primary contact, not split amongst consignors who are sharing a number.
How many items can I consign? For the Summer 2018 sale, there will not be a limit to consigned items.
What type of clothing can I consign? We accept current, quality items that are new or gently used. Ever Brighter is not a thrift store or garage sale, so items should be clean, on-trend and in excellent condition. Ask yourself: would I feel good about loaning this to my best friend? For more on acceptable items, click here.
Can I consign clothing that isn’t a high-end brand? Yes. While our sale will include designer and high-end items, we also accept clothing from more moderately priced boutiques, department stores and retail chains such as J. Crew, Talbots, Banana Republic, Club Monaco, Ann Taylor, LOFT, Anthropologie, Gap, The Limited, Kate Spade, The North Face, lululemon, etc. The quality and condition of the item is more important than the brand.
Do you accept used clothing? Certainly – in addition to new items, we accept gently used clothing that is in excellent condition. If it looks worn, dingy or smells less than fresh, it won’t make the cut. At drop off, your items should be clean, unwrinkled and free of pet hair. The same applies for full service pick up. For more on acceptable items, click here.
What size of clothing do you accept? We accept all sizes including juniors, misses, women and maternity. Our Summer 2018 sale does not include men, children or infant clothing.
Can I consign children’s clothing and shoes? This sale will only include clothing and shoes for women but junior sizes will be included.
What if I am unsure if an item is acceptable? If in doubt, don’t hesitate to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions. We’ll do our best to respond promptly. The deadline for submitting questions about acceptable items for the Summer 2018 sale is Friday, July 6 at midnight.
