Consign With Us
We would love to see anything you might want to consign at Ampersand—gives us the chance to meet you! We're always considering dresses, blouses, shoes, purses, jewelry and accessories, and what we’re looking for are statement pieces that are head-turning. Generally, we consider Fall/Winter items beginning at the end of August and Spring/Summer items starting in January.
We rarely sell pants and skirts and do not take suits or multi-pieces. We sell in-store and online, and our goal is to sell fabulous pieces at the best possible prices.
There’s no need to make an appointment! We welcome you to bring anything by for consideration during our business hours, seven days a week. Everyone on our team is trained to edit what we think will sell the best at Ampersand. And we make the process as easy as possible for you and consider it a business partnership when you give us the chance to sell your beauties.
Also, know that if you have gobs of higher-end designers and/or vintage items in your closet, we would be more than happy to come to you. Please give us a call at 323.466.3300 or drop us an email, firstname.lastname@example.org, and we’d be thrilled to set an appointment.
How It Works
We display your merchandise through the appropriate season. You will receive 50% commission if you opt to donate any unsold items, or 40% should you want your items returned at the end of the season. Payments are issued by check and mailed every month for the prior month's sales.
We donate to organizations that serve less privileged women and children.
All consignments are confidential.
What sells the best?
It’s all about the piece, truly. We do best with fabulous items of all price points and every possible brand. The era and season don’t matter to us as much as the piece itself. Whether it’s a new Isabel Marant peasant dress or a fabulous vintage 70’s jumpsuit, we love items that feel one-of-a-kind just because they each have a beauty all their own.
We love so many designers and brands from all over the world, and our online boutique will include a hot and haute mix, such as: Acne, Alexander McQueen, Alexander Wang, Balenciaga, Bottega Veneta, Carven, Celine, Chanel, Dries Van Noten, Helmut Lang, Isabel Marant, Louis Vuitton, Maison Martin Margiela, Prada, Suno and Yves Saint Laurent. We also carry a wider assortment in store, including A.L.C., Alice + Olivia, Joie, Sea, No. 6 Store, Steven Alan, Theory and Vince, to name a few.
