Frequently Asked Questions

 

▼ Can I sell you some of my clothing?

Yes!  We would love to purchase your new/gently used women's apparel for resale.  Please see our SELL / CONSIGN / TRADE page to make an appointment and review our Contract.

▼ What are your purchasing hours?

Due to the number of drop offs coming into the shop, we now require an appointment to ensure we have the time to provide the level of customer service that you deserve.  Ashley (buyer) is in the shop Tuesdays - Saturdays and accepts appointments between 11:30am - 6:30pm. Please see our SELL / CONSIGN / TRADE page to request and appointment.

▼ What type of stuff are you looking for?

We buy according to season, condition and inventory levels within our sliding budget.

We're looking for fresh, casual and semi-formal vintage apparel from the 1950's-1990's as well as unique contemporary and designer pieces in new and gently used condition that we can successfully re-sell.  We do try to steer clear of fast fashion items such as Forever 21, H&M, Mossimo, etc.

SIZING: Women's apparel ranging in contemporary sizes 2 - 12 // XS - XL sell best for us.

If you are looking to sell plus size items, we highly recommend Two Big Blondes, they offer the same consignment and trade percentages as Revival, and are looking for your items in sizes 14 and up!

If you are looking for an incredible collection of early vintage clothing, shoes and accessories plus new, vintage inspired pieces, wedding/formalwear and menswear, we recommend checking out Pretty Parlor.

We will pass on items with stains, tears missing buttons, cigarette smoke, Cat//Dog fur etc. If there is an item we want to make an exception for but needs some TLC, such as washing, mending, de-pilling, we will assign an "As Is" price to that piece based on its condition at time of buy in.

Please bring in items that are freshly laundered and ready to hit the sales floor so that you can get the best return on your pieces. 

If you are still unsure of what to bring in, visiting our shop to view our collection should give you a better idea of our customer's style and clothing prices.  You can also send us an email with photos and a description. If in doubt, bring your stuff in for us to review!

Do not be discouraged if we pass on your items!  We select items we feel we can successfully sell within one month.  If we have too many similar styles in stock or recognize a style as difficult to sell to our particular customers, we may choose to pass or will suggest another time to revisit your pieces.  Nothing personal!
