Our Consignment Criteria
Bride in wedding dress.
We are only interested in good label merchandise in "like new" condition. Items must be brought in on hangars and must be cleaned and pressed with no spots or stains that won't come out, no missing buttons, broken zippers, torn hems or seams, no smoking odors, no storage odors, and no dog or cat hair or dander. I will make every effort to protect your items but we are not responsible for and will not compensate consignor for any damage or loss due to try-ons, smoke, fire, water,theft, vandalism, or natural disaster.
You will receive an itemized receipt when you bring your items in, which you will be required to sign. This receipt will contain our Agreement regarding length of consignment, sale pricing information, pick-up date or disposal information on unsold items. Items left in store past pickup date noted in this receipt/agreement will become the property of Cherry's Designer Bridal Gown Consignment Shoppe and will be disposed of at Cherry's discretion. We do not guarantee to remind consignors of the pickup date or to hold items for consignors past that date. Any and all Agreements will be in writing.
How Consignors are Paid
Consignors are paid based on a 50/50 split unless otherwise noted. A $200 minimum sales price. Payment to my consignors is available three days after sell of wedding gown. You do not have to wait until the pickup date to be paid. We mail your check to you or you may pick up in the store with proper identification presented. Checks are void after 6 months and will not be reissued.
Cash OR Vendor's Special Offer
During the first 90 days of consignment, you will always have the option to exchange your dress instead for a special Vendor offer. This might be better than waiting to get your money for the dress and especially if you are concerned if you will get it sold for the price you want. Complete descriptions of all Vendor's Special Offers are available in the office.
How To Submit Your Wedding Dress
Just $15 to list and you are required to have your dress professionally cleaned and prepared to sell (www.gordonscleaners.com) or cleaned elsewhere, if needed. We have a Camera Room on premises where professional studio photographer will take photographs of you modeling the dress, if you desire. These photos will help sell the dress. It is up to you whether your face shows in the photographs or not. Either way, you will be required to sign a Model Release to give us permission to use the photographs for marketing your gown. You will also be provided the JPEGs so you may also use for getting the word out about the dress. There is no charge for this wedding gown photo shoot. Your wedding gown will be listed on our website and available in the store for brides to view and try on.
Sit back & relax. We'll promote your wedding dress across the site, social media, and select partners, and handle all customer service with potential buyers around the world. Need to update your listing? Simply use this form below and update any details of your gown including price and description.
When your dress is sold, you will be notified three days later and tell us if you want us to mail your check to you or if you prefer to pick it up in the store. You will receive check in the amount of 50% of the sale price. Cherry retains 50% of the sale price for her marketing services. Of course, if you exchanged your dress for a Vendor's Special Offer, you have already been compensated and will not receive any monetary payment for the dress.
