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.

When can I bring my items in?2023-08-31T18:31:32+00:00

Please contact us for when our intake is open, as it does change depending on current supply. You can reach us on Facebook and Instagram or contact us directly at 519-304-9050 or megsandclarke@gmail.com with any questions.
Intake hours are Monday to Friday 9-4, when intake is open.

Can I drop off any season, any time?2023-08-31T17:45:27+00:00

When we are open for intake, we take all seasons.
We ask that your clothing items are all freshly laundered, current styles and free of rips or stains.  We also ask that sets (pajamas, outfits, suits etc..) are folded together. Items must be right side out.

How do I know my items meet current safety standards when selling?2018-04-03T16:17:38+00:00

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.

How do I know my items meet current safety standards when buying?2018-04-03T16:16:12+00:00

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.

How do I check my consignment account?2023-08-31T17:51:59+00:00

Of course we love it when you came in to check your account as seeing you makes us happy; but you always have the option of a quick phone call, an email or  message thru Facebook or  Instagram and we will gladly let you know your account balance.


What makes you different from other local stores?2023-08-31T17:52:51+00:00

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 items 4) We help local aritsans showcase their amazing products, while paying them fairly for their work.

Why don’t you pay cash up front for everything?2023-08-31T17:53:49+00:00

By doing consignment, we can offer a larger percentage to you for your amazing things. It encourages our consignors to bring us their best items as that makes them most likely to sell.

How long do my items stay on the sales floor?2023-08-31T17:55:04+00:00

Used items like clothing, books and toys, stay on the floor for 30 days at regular price, then are reduced by 25% for the next 30 days, and then proceed to a clearance rack at 60% off for an additional 30 days. At which time 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.

What do I need to do to become a consignor?2023-08-31T17:55:34+00:00

All you need is to stop in with your excellent used or handmade kids items, during intake times, and we can set up an account for you.

How can I get paid for sold products?2023-08-31T17:56:43+00:00

Once your items sell, the money automatically shows up in your store account. Any money in your account can be used in-store towards other products or picked up as cash at any time.

If you move away, or prefer an e-transfer, we can do so for a $3 fee.

What is consignment?2023-08-31T17:58:12+00:00

Consignment is a way to sell your items with no upfront cost to you or us, keeping prices affordable. Once an item is sold, we both make a portion of the sale. This also means all items remain yours until sold should you unexpectedly need your items back.

Where did the name come from?2023-08-31T18:03:53+00:00

Megs + Clarke was named after the children of one of our original owners.. Unfortunately due to life circumstances she no longer owns the store, but we kept the store name in their honour.
