Frequently Asked Questions
Take a look through some frequently asked questions about how we do consignment and what you can expect from selling or purchasing products from Megs + Clarke.
During intake times (March to December) you can bring in any season at any time.
Make sure your items are not cracked or broken. Make sure the plastics have not broken down from too much sun exposure. And always check the government of Canada’s website for an updated list of recalled items.
At Megs + Clarke we do our utmost to check items for recalls and safety. But we are human and standards change daily so if ever you feel something wasn’t/isn’t safe, please let us know so we can correct it, thanks.
Of course we would love it if you came in to check your account. Seeing you is what makes our days happy. But you always have the option of a quick phone call, message thru Facebook or an email.
Our goal is to help as many local families in as many ways as possible. We do that in a variety of ways. 1) Offering used items at affordable prices 2) Offering the most unique children’s items in one location 3) We offer one of the best payout rates for your used items 4) We help local aritsans showcase their amazing products, while paying them fairly for their work.
By doing consignment, we can offer a larger percentage to you for your amazing things. It also encourages our consignors to bring us their items in the best condition because that guarantees the most likely to sell.
Used items like clothing, books and toys, stay on the floor for 30 days at regular price. Then are on the floor for 30 days at 25% off, and then proceed to a clearance rack at 60% off for an additional 30 days. After that we donate to a charity of our choice. Children’s equipment will be reduced by 10% per month until it is sold. Handmade items stay (without markdown) on the floor or get returned to their artists.
We will not be doing intake during January and February.
If it is between March and December, intake is during regular business hours, no appointments necessary.
All you need is to stop in with your excellent used or handmade kids items and we can set up an account for you.
Once your items sell, the money automatically shows up in your store account. Any money ini your account can be used in store towards other products or picked up as cash at any time.
Consignment is a way to sell your items with no upfront cost to you or us. Once an item is sold, we both make a portion of the sale. This also means all items remain yours until sold.
