PLEASE NOTE: DUE TO THE SIDEWALK SALE ON 6/23 AND 6/24, WE ARE SUSPENDING ALL HOME CONSIGNMENTS UNTIL THE WEEK OF 6/27. THANK YOU FOR YOUR UNDERSTANDING.

 

Why Consign With Us?

WE'RE COMPETITIVE

Our consignment rates are competitive with other upscale consignment shops -- both retail businesses and online resalers.  We offer our consignors 50% of the selling price once items are sold, and 60% of the selling price for these luxe designers: Balenciaga, Bottega Veneta, Chanel, Celine, Chloe, Christian Dior, Dolce & Gabbana, Fendi, Gucci, Hermes, Lanvin, Louis Vuitton, Miu Miu, Prada, Valentino, and Yves Saint Laurent/YSL.

TO GIVE BACK

Consigning or donating with us simply feels good. Unlike other consignment stores which operate as for-profit enterprises, 100% of our profits go to support nonprofit organizations helping children and families in need. Either way you are giving back to the community.

ITEMS SELL FAST

Our top designer items don't stay on the floor long.  We have a loyal customer base that regularly visits our shop.  And our sales are supported through online marketing and social media outlets like Facebook and Instagram.  Our email database is 2,500 people and growing, covering the North Shore and beyond.

WE PAY QUICKLY

Consignors can expect a check within 45 days of sale.

The Upside to Donating 

MAKE A GREATER IMPACT

At the North Shore Exchange we love donations. All of the proceeds of the sale of these items go directly to our bottom line, which helps us stay in the business of helping others.

TAX WRITE-OFF

Something to consider when deciding whether to donate or consign -- depending upon the value of the item you are looking to pass on, it may be more worthwhile for you to donate.  You can claim 35% of the full retail price as a tax write-off vs. receiving just 50% of the profit from the final sale of your item.  All donors receive IRS documentation of their items.  It is up to them to determine the value.

FREE PICK UP

North Shore Exchange will pick up all donated furniture. 

 

At the North Shore Exchange, we offer a curated selection of upscale luxury and contemporary resale women’s fashions, accessories and jewelry along with distinctive furniture and home décor.  We aim to delight our shoppers with a highly selective, boutique experience with the brands and fashions they’re most likely to be seeking. 

WE’RE SELECTIVE

Unlike the more traditional consignment shop model where a wider variety of items might be accepted and sold, our selectivity allows us to offer an edited selection of items that sell more quickly, translating into higher proceeds for the worthy charities we support - and for our consignors - while also keeping our inventory fresh.

1.  Please review our accepted list of designers and quality standards, and sort your items accordingly.

2.  For clothing, please make sure your items are not dated, too worn, pilled or out of season.  Items much be 5 years old or less, unless a unique collector's item.

3.  Furniture and home décor items should be clean and, at most, gently used showing only minor wear and tear.

4.  Call 847-835-0026 or click here to make an appointment to have a sales associate or furniture scout review your items for approval.

5.  Upon approval, a consignment agreement will be signed with you and your items will be taken in for sale.  A pickup for larger furniture may be arranged for a small fee.

Clothing Guidelines

At the North Shore Exchange, we aim to delight our shoppers with a highly selective, boutique experience with the brands and fashions they're most likely to be seeking.

While our list of accepted designers is not exhaustive, it is meant to represent the kinds of designers and merchandise that we have found are most likely to sell.  Please know that if an item you are looking to consign does not meet our critera, we are still deeply appreciative of your support of our mission and for your consideration of the North Shore Exchange.

 

  • We only accept clean items in very good to pristine condition that are not out of date and less than 5 years old. Exceptions are of vintage, collectible luxury designer items.
  • Clothing and accessories should be dry cleaned in bags on hangers or freshly washed.  A cleaning fee of 10% of the original price will be charged for items not ready for the selling floor.
  • Knock-offs or fake items WILL NOT be accepted.  Both the North Shore Exchange and our customers consider it fraud to represent something as authentic when it is not.  We take authenticity very seriously and thoroughly research every item we sell.

  • We do not accept glass top dining room or coffee tables.
  • Lamps must be functional with shades in good condition.
  • Chandeliers must be able to be hung from an "S" hook from the ceiling and have all crystal, light bulbs and other essential parts attached.  
  • Dishes, china, glassware and table settings must be in settings of eight or more.
  • Framed art and wall hangings will be accepted on an individual basis and must include hanging wire or sawtooth hooks.  No poster art will be accepted.
  • Only silver-plate accessories such as serving forks or spoons will be accepted.
  • Sets of glasses or crystal will accepted only in sets of 8 or more with the exception of champagne glasses.
  • All crystal objects such as vases, bowls and plates must be identifiable with a stamp or signature of the creator.
  • All clocks must be operational with working batteries.
  • All items must be able to be priced at $40 or more.  Anything under that will be considered a donation.
  • Unique items will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
