How do I sell my clothes at Aerial?
First off, we ask that you make an appointment. This ensures that someone will be available and ready to buy from you. Sometimes our inventory may be fully stocked, and so it also ensures that we are actually buying at the moment.
What kind of clothes will you buy?
We are looking for designer or brand name clothing- men's and women's- that is in season, and in style. We also have some interest in vintage designer clothing, but this is a case-by-case basis and so please always call ahead before bringing anything in. For a list of common designer brands, click here (this list is not exhaustive, however). We are always happy to donate any items not purchased to Goodwill or Dress for Success for you.
what if my clothing has a teeny tiny stain or hole?
We will not accept any clothing that is defective... regardless of how small the stain or hole may be. Clothing/items must also not be missing any buttons or have a broken zipper(s). Please do not bring in anything that you know isn't in excellent quality condition. Clothing should be freshly laundered, and smoke and pet hair free! Our preference is that you bring it in nicely folded in tubs or structured bags. No trash bags please!!!
Will you pay me cash on the spot?
Yes! We will pay you cash for your clothing at the time of your appointment. Please keep in mind however, that a number of factors play into the value of what we think we can resale a piece for. Also, depending on current inventory, we may not always be consistent about what we will be buying at the time. This is why it's important to always call ahead for your appointment. For larger ticket designer items, or if we're not currently buying, we may offer a consignment contract.
What is your consignment contract and fee?
We start consignment contracts at 90 days with the option to extend. Our consignment fee is 50% of the total sale of the item. Consignment contracts are always offered on items with a resale value of over $50, but may be offered on smaller value items if we're not buying outright at the time.
Do you offer layaway?
Absolutely. We know that sometimes you can't pass a deal up! Layaway is available for any item over $200, or any overall purchase of $300. A 25% non-refundable deposit is required at the time to secure layaway option, and will be applied to the balance. Any layaway tickets not picked up within 35 days will be forfeited, along with deposit (unless other arrangements have specifically been made).
What is your return policy?
The return policy is that there are no returns.
