here’s how it works:

example of several clothing items ready to be photographed by the customer

step 1) get pre-approved

  • represent your items accurately; provide at least 3 photos of each piece: 1) front  2) back  3) detail

  • email at least 3 photos of each of your items to bagit@beaconscloset.com  

  • take additional photos of any details you feel will help us assess the value of your item (condition, the label, inside and outsole of shoes, era, etc)
     
  • due to shipping costs and for sustainability reasons, we cannot send a mailer for submissions with less than 5 accepted items. we highly suggest submitting at least 10 items for consideration, as it makes the selling process more efficient and maximizes your potential payment amount

  • please note: approved items that are not accurately represented by customer, will be donated with no payment to customer, or can be returned for $8.95 at the sole cost of the customer 

  • wait for an email confirmation. we will notify you within 48 hours of accepted items and their price estimates

  • once you receive your pre-paid mailer, simply bag up your pre-approved item(s) and ship them back

  • ensure that the bag is properly sealed

  • attach the inclosed pre-paid shipping label and drop it at your local post office or schedule a pick-up.
