Consignor Agreement


Consignor Account Registration

During your first consignment drop-off, we will set up an account for you in the consignor portal. Please note: An active email address is required in order to register with us as a consignor. Without one, you cannot access your online account. We will only contact you regarding consignor or store business. We will NEVER give your email address to any external marketers.

Consignment Period

Your items will be on the floor of the shop for a minimum of 60 days. If you wish to pick up your items, and have identified yourself to us a non-donator, please do what it takes to remind yourself to come by the store and reclaim your items within a calendar week of that 60 days, as we cannot contact every consignor when an item expires. You are responsible for identifying and locating your own items if you want to reclaim them. We are not equipped to provide you with printed lists of your items, so be prepared with a list or your phone to access your account. Items automatically get discounted to 50% after 60 days, and they expire at 70 days.

After we invite you to the portal, you can check the status of every accepted consigned item on your account – whether it has sold, when it expires, etc.  Upon expiration, the consigned items become the property of Persimmon Consignment Boutique, whether or not you have identified yourself as a non-donator. This is not a manual process - this is the way our software works, and is automatic. If your item sells after it expires, the funds will go into Persimmon's house account. At the time of expiration, we will decide whether to put items on sale, donate them, or make them part of fundraising or other promotional activities. Most unsold items at the end of a season are donated.

We reserve the right to change the consignment period of specific items, with certain consignors, and in special circumstances. We reserve the right to put items on sale within the 60-day consignment period if we become overstocked on certain items, regardless of how long they have been on the floor. We reserve the right to change the terms of the consignment period in general.

Item Security and Indemnification

While we do our best to keep your items safe and secure while in the shop (through vigilance and security cameras), we cannot make any guarantees against loss, theft, or damage, regardless of the cause.  We keep higher-value items in our sight at all times, where possible.

Payment Terms and Conditions

Consignors receive 50% of the sale price of their items, minus the $1 buyers fee, which is added to the price of the item after staff has priced it. This fee helps cover processing, packaging, and credit card fees that enable us to market the items.

Consignor payout is provided on an as-requested basis, rather than on any set day of the month. All balances will be maintained on the portal. When a consignor comes to the store to collect funds, any balances under $50 will be paid in cash, and anything significantly over $50 will require a check. We will write you a check in real time, so please be patient, or call ahead to let us know you will be coming to pick up a check. There is a $0.50 check writing fee. If you require your check to be mailed, an additional fee of $1 will be charged for postage and supplies. Please call or email the store for this service. Any checks not cashed within 180 days of receipt will be forfeit and will be subject to a $5 late cashing fee which will be removed from the account holder's remaining balance. Any payout from any sold item older than 1 year old will revert back to Persimmon Consignment Boutique.

Consignors may also use their balance to purchase items in the store upon request. Please note that in-store credit and a cash/check payout can NOT occur within the same day and sales staff will notify you of this so you can decide your approach.

Consignor Contract Termination

We reserve the right at any time to cancel a consignor’s contract if we should feel that the consignor has knowingly provided us with, for example, stolen goods, counterfeit goods, etc. We also reserve the right to change the payment terms at any time (percentages, method of payout etc) when we feel it is in the best interest of the store and community, and these changes will be clearly communicated via email and/or social media. The consignor also has the right to terminate their own contract at any time, and come claim any of their remaining consigned items within the 60-day consignment period and their account balance.

Registration on the portal, whether by the consignor or by a representative of Persimmon Consignment Boutique, will constitute a binding agreement that these terms are understood and agreed to by the consignor.
