As a business that strives to offer an experience comparable to high end bridal salons it is imperative that our consignors understand our conditions. 

Our shoppe operates strictly on consignment which means we connect clients to your items and then split the profit.  Consignment is a partnership that involves a contract and the respectful participation of the consignor.  Maintaining a copy of the lawfully binding contract, abiding by the terms and conditions and respecting expiry dates is part of selling with us.  Consignment is not for everyone and that's okay! In order to have the best consignor experience please read  WHY IT WORKS before selling with us.

 

Dresses must be clean in order for us to sell them.

You are welcome to launder them yourself or dry clean elsewhere.

Pearl & Birch offers dry cleaning at affordable rates which you will find listed here.

 

Walk in consignments will not be accepted.

In order to ensure that our shoppers are receiving undivided time and attention from our team we will not accept unscheduled visits for anything related to consignment.

 

Inventory and pricing is subject to our expert discretion.

We have connected thousands of items based on our knowledge of fair market value, condition and current trends. During your intake we will outline our evaluation and make recommendations based on our extensive experience selling in the Winnipeg market. We cannot provide estimations over the phone as we must see the item(s) prior to making any recommendations regarding pricing.  We won't accept items that we know we can't sell due to overpricing, condition or dated styling.

 

Store policies and procedures.

We schedule our intakes for 30 minutes to ensure our contract presentation is thorough and transparent. All contracts are for a one year and we retain 50% of all items sold.  We will explain the terms and conditions and your relationship with the consignment in detail.  All clients are required to read the contract and sign the agreement before leaving their items in the store. During your intake we will detail how the store operates, ways to contact the shoppe and what happens at the end of your consignment with us.
