Are your items genuine and authentic?

How do you value my item?

We want to ensure that you get the maximum amount you can for your piece whilst still ensuring a successful sale. We consider many different variables before approaching you with a suggested value including but not exclusively: the original price paid, the condition, the demand for and the rarity of the item. We have been in the preloved designer fashion industry for 35 years and have a great deal of knowledge about the price a customer will pay for each designer piece.

How do I ship my items to you?

Once approved, you arrange a non-contact drop-off at our Chelsea store, please contact us to arrange. Or you can safely send them to our Chelsea store via a courier. We can collect 20 or more items in person for sellers within a 15 mile radius of either of our locations in Ascot, Berkshire and Chelsea, London. For those who live further afield we will collect 15 or more items via courier for free, UK wide. 

What happens if my item doesn't sell?

After 6 weeks if your item is still unsold, it will qualify for a price reduction to help it to sell. If it doesn't sell within the 8 week sale period, you can either choose to reduce the sale price further, collect the item or bare the cost of the item being returned. You can also choose to send it to charity. If your item has been selected to sell on our website, we can sell it & store it for longer, but it will still qualify for a price reduction to help it sell.

How do I get paid?

We pay at the end of the month for all the items sold in that month via bank transfer. Please note due to having a return window, for online orders you will paid on the first opportunity after the seven day returns window has expired via bank transfer.
