JLM takes consignments from Wednesday to Friday, 11:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturdays 10:30 am to 2 p.m.  We quickly make our selections and give you back what doesn't work for us. We ask that you bring in no more than 20 items per visit to allow us to manage our inventory easier and get your items out quicker.  We may not choose everything you bring in.  This is in no way a reflection on your personal taste or style.  We select items based on what we currently need in the shop, and based on demand and what our customers will buy.

Bring your gently loved clothing in on hangers, or folded neatly in a laundry basket. No plastic bags please.  We are looking for new and nearly new clothing that has been purchased within the last 2-3 years and must be in excellent condition and freshly laundered or dry cleaned.  Items must have no frayed seams/hems, holes, stains, smells/odours or imperfections and must be from a smoke free environment. All items brought in must be only in gently used/nearly new condition.

In order to benefit from maximum selling time, be sure to bring your items in early in the season.  Spring/Summer consignment runs from February to August, and Fall/Winter from mid August to mid January.  The earlier in the season you consign with us, the more exposure and potential selling time you will have.  If your items do not sell by the end of the consignment term, you have the option of picking up your unsold items or having them donated to a local charity.  If you wish to pick up unsold items, you will have 2 weeks to do so, after which items will be donated to a local non-selling charity. It is the customer's responsibility to keep track of the time line for their own clothing.  Any items not picked up within the time frame will be donated to charity.

First time consignors will fill out a form to set up their account with us. Repeat consignors have the option to drop and run. Once entered into contract and your items have been inventoried, you may not take back your items until the consignment period has been completed.

Your items will be prepared and beautifully displayed in our store for approximately 90 days.  Items sell at regular price for about 30 days, then markdowns will begin.  As a consignor, you will receive 60% of the final selling price. All prices are determined and set by JLM Collections, and are based on the quality, condition, demand, and uniqueness of items, and what the market will bear. We understand what our customers will purchase, and the prices they are willing to pay.  We want to make sure we get the best possible selling price for you, our consignor, while still making them marketable.  If you have any concerns about what your goods may be priced at, please let us know at the time of drop-off. ​

Accounts will be reconciled the beginning of each month and your payment will be available the 15th of the month. For amounts owing of $50 or more, a cheque will be prepared and may be mailed or picked up at the shop. Amounts of less than $50 may be be picked up as cash or will be rolled over to the next month. All outstanding dollars will be paid at the end of the consignment period. You may take your amount owed to you as a store credit at any time.  Monies will only be paid out to the account holder or anyone listed on the account, with proper identification.

Please note that while every reasonable care and precaution is taken, we cannot be held responsible for loss or damage.  Items left on consignment are done so at your own risk.
