Q. Will you notify me of my account balance?

A. No. It is the responsibility of the consignor to check their account balance. You may call, email or come in to the store any time to do so. We will ask you when you are making a purchase if you have an account to check the balance for you.

Q. Can I cash out my account balance? 

A. Yes. You can cash out your account balance, or use it to shop. You receive a 10% discount on regular priced items when you spend a minimum of $10 from your account balance.

Q. My account balance expire?

A. Accounts that have become inactive - no drop offs, purchases using account balance, or payouts for 12 or more months, are eligible to be used as store credit only. This cannot be reversed. Consignors will have 12 months from the date of conversion to STORE CREDIT to use their balance. Any unused credit will be forfeited after 24 months.
