Our Fashion Consignment Standards

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. All criteria below apply to Women's Fashion, Accessories, Jewelry, Purses and Shoes.

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.

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

We do not carry the following items

*Bathing Suits * Children's Clothing * Exercise Clothes * Menswear * Sleepwear * Wedding Dresses * Women's Lingerie*

Excellent Condition

Freshly Cleaned

Very good to pristine condition and styles within 5 years. Exceptions are of vintage, collectible luxury designer items. No stains, marks or tears. No broken handles, straps, and zippers. All items must be intact and functional.

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. Products with cigarette, pet, and strong smells of any kind will not be accepted.

Select Designers

Fully Authentic

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. For a complete list of luxury and contemporary designers that we are currently accepting, please visit our

Our expert Merchandising team carefully inspects all product to ensure authenticity. No replicas or missing brand labels. Only items that are backed by our full confidence in legitimacy and authenticity are accepted.
