We Work On Consignment
At Repeat Street in Gurnee, we work on consignment. That means you bring your items in and we look them over to determine what we can accept to put out for sale. What we do put out, we put out for 60 days — that is the consignment period. Whatever sells within that 60 days, you receive 40% of the sales price.
We Accept Only Name Brand Authentic Items
Items must be in like-new condition, freshly cleaned, free of stains or odors or any other obvious signs of wear and tear, and that have been purchased new within the last two to three years — so they are within current styles and trends.
When customers realize a business sold them a counterfeit product, they lose their trust and wonder what else the store is being dishonest about. At Repeat Street, we will not ever knowingly sell a counterfeit product. If we are not sure of the authenticity of a product, we will not accept it unless we have had it authenticated by a third-party company who can verify its authenticity.
Items Should Be Ready To Sell
Clothes must be brought in wrinkle free on hangers. Shoes should be out of the box and placed in a paper shopping bag (designer shoe boxes like Christian Louboutin, Valentino, Chanel, etc. are welcome). We cannot accept items that are in plastic bags. We will not accept discount store brands or items that have any type of stains or odors as our customers do not want to purchase items that don’t look like they are new. Our customers’ preferences guide our selections.
Appointments Required While We Slowly Re-Open
We will be accepting consignments by appointment only for right now. For the Gurnee Store, please call us at 847-596-2203 to schedule an appointment after Friday, May 29th. For the Libertyville Store, please call us at 847-549-3320. We are scheduling appointments so we can adhere to the maximum number of people in our stores at one time that is set by the Illinois Department of Public Health. Once those limits are lifted, we will go back to accepting consignments at any time. We will notify you when this happens.
When bringing items in, all clothes must come in on hangers Shoes, purses, accessories and home décor items can come in a bin, box or paper shopping bag. We will not accept anything in plastic bags. Please label your boxes, bins and bags with your name and phone number prior to bringing them in. If you chose to pick up items not accepted, you must pick them up within 2 days of us calling you or they will be donated. We do not have the storage space to hold items any longer than that.
If you’re not sure about some labels you have, just ask us. We want to sell the items you bring us and do our best to make sure they are what our customers are looking for. Items offered with stains, tears or in need of cleaning will not be accepted.
Accessories & Shoes
Shoes sell extremely well if they are in excellent shape. We sell everything from Nine West to Donald Pliner. Purses by Coach, Dooney & Bourke, Brighton, Louis Vuitton, Prada, Kate Spade and other high-end designers sell very well.
Furniture & Home Goods
We are now accepting (small) furniture items and home decor. Best selling items are accent chairs, rugs, end tables, coffee tables — basically, if it fits in your car, bring it on in!
