Standard Consignment Agreement/General Guidelines
Consignment and/or Donations: The Give Back Boutique accepts consignments and outright donations. 100% of profits benefit families in need in the Lake Norman area through the Mooresville/Lake Norman Christian Mission. If you choose to donate, we will happily provide a receipt for tax purposes.
Terms of Consignment: Consigner receives 50% of the selling price after the items sell.
How it works: We would like you to have the best consignment experience possible. To keep our boutique fresh and fashionable, we have established the following guidelines: All clothing, should be current (no older than two years), in excellent condition, i.e., free of stains, pulls, holes, worn cuffs and missing buttons. It should be clean, free of smoke and other odors, pressed and on hangers. Shoes must be in nearly mint condition and current in style. Non-clothing items must be in good condition, i.e., no cracks, chips, missing parts, etc. Our staff will sort your items to determine what we can consign. Any items that we feel we cannot consign will be given back to you, or, you can choose to donate them to the Christian Mission and receive a tax receipt. There may be times that we miss something at first glance and later while tagging determine the merchandise is not appropriate to sell i.e. Stains, tears, pulls etc. These items will be donated to the Christian mission without prior notification to the consignor.
Hours Of Consignments: Consignments are accepted during store hours (from opening until 1 hour before store closing). Please allow some extra time when dropping off. Our hours are Tuesday through Friday 10-6 and Saturday 10–4. We are CLOSED Sunday and Monday.
Pricing: Give Back Boutique staff will be responsible for pricing all consignment articles. A $1 handling charge will be added and is paid by the buyer at the time of purchase. Items are 20-50% off after 30 days. In addition, the price of any item may be reduced at any time in order to facilitate a sale.
Consignment Period: We will display your items for 60 days unless they are seasonal. All items unsold beyond the 60 day period will automatically become the property of the Boutique unless you pick them up between day 50 and day 60 of the contract period.
Consignment Payout: Checks are written for account balances that are over $40 at the beginning of the month. They are available for pick up on the 20th of the month. Amounts $40 or under will stay in your account and can be used as store credit or gift card purchases. Checks are not mailed unless you have provided self-addressed, stamped envelopes. All monies not claimed and cashed within 90 days of issue date will be considered a gift to the Mooresville/Lake Norman Christian Mission and used to help those in need in our community. A $35 check fee will be charged for lost checks that need to be reissued before the 90-day expiration date.
Held Harmless: Consignor agrees that The Give Back Boutique is not responsible for items lost, stolen or damaged.
