Consignor Agreement

 

Consignor Account Registration

New consignors are registered in the consignor portal, online. During your first consignment drop-off, we will set up an account for you. Please note: An active email address is required in order to register with us as a consignor. If you do not already have an email account, please sign up for one, or borrow an email address from someone you trust who will let you know if we send them anything. We will only contact you regarding consignor or store business (for example, when it is time to bring in your seasonal items). 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. After the 60-day period has ended, your items will either be donated or used for store promotions or fundraising for local charities. 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.  We can check the status of every accepted consigned item on the portal – whether it has sold, when it expires, etc.  After 60 days, the items become the property of Persimmon Consignment Boutique. We reserve the right to change the consignment period of specific items, with certain consignors, and in special circumstances. 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

Payment 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. 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 90 days of receipt will be forfeit and will be reclaimed by Persimmon Consignment Boutique. Any balance in a consignor account unclaimed within 6 months of last consigned item sold will revert back to Persimmon Consignment Boutique.

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.

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.
