WANT TO SELL YOUR CLOTHING TO THE HEREAFTER?
Here's everything you need to know!
Update (May 24, 2023): Sorry, we're not currently buying anything! We are
overstocked and have a lot to get through before we have space and budget
for more stuff. Not sure when we'll be ready to accept more, but we will update
this page when that time comes. Thank you!
What we are looking to buy:
We are always seeking fun vintage clothing from the 1950s to the early 2000s, as well as newer, trendy, gently used items.
We LOVE vintage!
Any bright, colorful, fun, edgy, punk, goth, glam, avant-garde, alt, special, or otherwise cool clothing items from any decade, including tees, casual clothes, denim, leather, office wear, party wear, cocktail dresses, rave wear, lingerie, pajamas, and robes.
As well as….
Modern (recently manufactured) clothing with a retro twist, streetwear, or anything fashion-forward or alternative in style, especially from independent designers or any niche online shops (like Dolls Kill, Killstar, Modcloth, etc). When we buy modern items, we are mainly looking for pin-up/goth/punk/rave/lolita/kawaii/etc styles, the kind of stuff you can't usually find very often in Wichita.
***We generally ARE NOT looking for work/office basics or clothing from Walmart, Target, or mainstream “fast fashion” brands like Forever 21, Charlotte Russe, Deb, Asos, Old Navy, Shein, Romwe, etc.
We generally are seeking seasonal clothing 1-2 months before the season hits (for example, in the summer, we'll be looking to buy fall clothing.)
We are always looking for MENSWEAR/UNISEX ITEMS!
And we are always looking for PLUS SIZE ITEMS!
Shoes! Hats! Belts! Bags! And any other accessories in good, wearable condition! (Again, vintage or in the styles described above)
Consignment and high-end designer pieces
We do not offer a consignment option for vintage clothing. We only buy items outright. We generally do not buy and sell high-end designer items that would be valued over $200, we're just not that kind of store. We most likely cannot offer you a fair price on items like that so please don't try to talk us into buying your expensive pieces.
Other stuff we DON'T accept:
We will not buy housewares, trinkets, or furniture. Underwear, socks, tights, or pantyhose unless they're new with tags or in unopened packaging. Wedding dresses. Prom dresses. Kids’ clothing. Items that are soiled, have noticeable holes or stains, deodorant marks inside or out, pet hair, or foul odors. Please only bring in clean, gently-used items! If you bring in an item we do really want but it requires cleaning/repair, we will be offering you significantly less for it, if we take it at all.
How does it work?
Just gather up some items you think we may be interested in buying. We ask that customers bring in no more than 2 bags or boxes of clothing at a time. PLEASE bring your clothing in bags or boxes and put your name and phone number on each, we can't and won't accept loose armloads of clothing. You might want to print and fill out a clothing intake form (located below) to save time, but we'll also have printed copies at the store. Just stop by the store during normal business hours and let one of us know you're wanting to sell some clothes. At this time, because we have limited staff and counter space to go through items, we ask that you bring your items in bags and plan on leaving them with us until the next Wednesday. We will go though them on our closed days (which are Mon/Tues), make you an offer via text or email when we're done, and you may pick up any items we're not buying the following week, or just let us know if you'd like us to donate them for you. If you want your leftover items back you must pick them up within a week of receiving your offer, otherwise they will be donated. We have limited space in our back room and can't afford to store your property indefinitely. Once you accept, we'll pay you in cash (check, venmo, or paypal, actually) or store credit - your choice.
How much will I get?
Generally we usually end up paying prices per item like what you'd see at a thrift store. ($3-5 for a shirt, $7-8 for jeans or a dress, etc. We will pay less for items that will require us to wash, steam, lint roll, or repair them.) For more rare and unique items you'll get more. You'll also get about 50% more in value if you choose store credit.
Store credit may be used to purchase any blue tagged items (that's most of what's in the store). Sorry, yellow tagged/consignment items are excluded (these include items from local artists and designers that remain the property of those individuals, so store credit doesn't apply.)
