Second Time Around 
Specialty: Designer clothing and accessories from the past two years that are in "like-new" condition. 

Payout for consignors: Items are priced at 25-to-30% off their original retail value and are placed on sale for a 90-day period, wherein the seller will receive 40% of the final selling price. For select high-end handbags, consignors receive up to 70% of the item's final selling price. Payments are sent out monthly by check, but if you choose store credit instead, you'll receive a $10 bonus 

What Second Time Around is looking for: Designer handbags, accessories, and shoes prove to be top-sellers in the merchandise department, while leading designers include Tory Burch, Marc Jacobs, Balenciaga, and Diane von Furstenberg. Also, seasonal items like designer sunglasses for summer. 

Won't consider: Faux designer goods, damaged or overly worn items, or vintage - they try to keep the inventory current. 

Quick tip: Call ahead and talk to a consignment specialists about your pieces before you bring everything in.
