Do I need to book to drop off or come in at a certain time?

No! Feel free to pop into any of the stores any time during open hours. It can be faster to avoid lunch times on the weekends, as this is the busiest time of the week.

What brands do you take?

We don't like to be too prescriptive in terms of saying what we can't take based on label alone. Tatty's is looking for well constructed pieces that are built to last, and meet the demands of our customer base! This means fast fashion pieces may not be selected.
It's a good idea to have a look through our online store to see the types of items we accept and the prices put on them.

Is there a minimum or maximum to drop off?

No, there's no minimum or maximum to drop off, so feel free to bring in one special piece, or your wardrobe clear out!

Do you buy outright?

Tatty's is a consignment store, which means we do not purchase items outright. Rather, we sell your pieces on your behalf. Once the item sells you receive 45% of the selling price, exclusive of GST.

What type of ID do I need to bring?

We accept any valid photo identification, such as a driver's license, passport, or 18+ card.

Who determines your prices?

Our dedicated stock team prices your pieces! Our prices are the result of careful research and our industry experience, as well as Tatty's sales history. The prices reflect market value, demand and condition.

I've changed my mind, can I have my pieces back?

You're welcome to withdraw your pieces at any time during the consignment period. You'll just need to pop into the store the item has been selling in, locate the items and then have a team member reconcile your account. Please note that pieces cannot be picked up while they are in the processing queue.

Can someone collect on my behalf

You're welcome to send someone on your behalf to collect returns or expiring items - just let the team know the nominated person's name in advance and we can pop a note on your account. Please note we cannot pay out funds to anyone other than the account holder.

Do you wash or mend pieces?

We do not wash, dry-clean or mend pieces on your behalf. Please freshly wash or air out your pieces before bringing them in, so they’re ready for a new home.

How do I collect my payout?

You can collect your payout by bank transfer through your user portal, collect in store, or use it as a gift card towards a new Tatty's purchase!

What if I don't want my pieces to sell at a discounted price?

You're welcome to withdraw your pieces at any time during the consignment period. If you do not wish for your piece to sell at a discounted price, please take note of when they will be discounted and visit us before they drop in price.
If you are not sure what date your pieces will become discounted, we encourage you to get in touch.

I missed my expiry date, can I still collect my item?

The expiration date is the final date to collect any unsold items. Due to the volume of items we receive, we do need to keep on top of the expiring items once they have finished their run in store to ensure we can operate smoothly. Please remember to pop in to collect any items you are wishing to withdraw on, or before the listed expiration date.

I opted not to collect my returns, but now I want them back, can I still collect them

Unfortunately if you opted "No" to collecting your returns any items not accepted into stock will have been sorted for disposal at the point of processing, meaning we are unable to retrieve them. If in doubt opt "Yes" to collecting your returns.

I missed my returns collection date, can I still come in to collect?

Unfortunately due to our limited storage space and number of consignor's who sell with us we need to adhere to the 7 day holding period for returns.

If it's your first time selling the team will go over the terms and conditions and process with you. You'll be asked to fill in a stock arrival form and choose whether you're wanting to collect any items we don't accept for resale, or whether you're happy for them to be passed on.

Your items will then be sent to our stock warehouse where our dedicated team will sort what we will and won't take and price the items. You'll then be emailed a list of the items accepted for sale, which you'll also be able to view on the Products tab of your user portal. Due to the volume we receive we do not itemise the garments we have not selected.
If you opted to collect your returns (items not selected for resale) they'll be sent back to the store that you dropped off at, and held for 7 days for you to collect. If you opted not to collect them then there's nothing to do just yet!

• 3 weeks at full price.

All consigned products will have their expiration date displayed on their listing. If you're wanting to collect any unsold items you just need to pop into the stores they have been selling in, on, or before this expiration date. Remember this is the final date to collect them!
