Our phone has already been ringing for more details on how folks can consign their dresses (or buy) and WE CAN'T WAIT for our THIRD ANNUAL EVENT! All questions can be answered by just taking a moment and reading all of the details here. After reading, if you have any other questions; please do not hesitate to reach out!
It's hard to sell a dress you wore for 4 hours that originally cost $600+. Really hard. Used prom dresses often get pushed back to the closet, and then 10 years later... Here you are with three prom dresses that aren't even in style. You might as well cut them up and make a blingy table cloth out of them or save them and let your kids play dress up! However, if you want to get rid of them this is a great opportunity and a simple, low key chance for you to do just that.
This year we will be continuing the fun, private, exclusive shopping night just for our VIP consignors. This is just a way for us to say thank you for bringing us a gorgeous dress -and hopefully giving you the first chance to buy one. VIPS can join us Thursday, March 7th 3-8 PM. We must know if you plan on coming so we have a swag bag for you. We will also be selling an extremely small amount of VIP (for non consignors) passes for our VIP Night. Passes can be purchased here.
How this works- Southern Savvy will move all of our merchandise from one side of the store to the other. This sounds crazy, but it will be half boutique half prom store for 4 fabulous days. Then, it's showtime. We work HARD to sell your dress.
Dresses must be 5 years old or less.
No "bridesmaid" or "wedding" style dresses are permitted for this event. (None of these type of dresses sold last year to girls so let's just save our time and energy here.)
All consignors must pay $5 stocking fee per dress. We want all sizes. We want all styles, chances are is that if you loved your dress; someone else will too!
(Stocking fee includes steaming dress, getting it "sale" ready, housing, storage, and transmission of sale. The stocking fee must be paid in cash when you bring your items.) We can not run our credit/debit card machine for this.
Southern Savvy reserves the right to turn away any dress for any reason.
Southern Savvy reserves the right to end/stop the consigning period prior to the sale. This would only happen if we exceed the volume that we are able to hold. This did not happen last year but we still reserve that right. The sooner you bring your dress, the better. Plus, we will be able to share it on social media the sooner you bring it!
Southern Savvy gets 30% of the profit if the dress sold and consignor gets 70%.
Consignor assumes risk during the event of any missing stones, frays, small rips. SS will take very good care of dresses and assist girls trying on merchandise. We will ensure they are properly fitted and the correct size before and while trying on to prevent any malfunction. However, SS but is not held responsible.
We will help you come up with a fair market price depending on the condition. We of course want you to get what you want out of it but also "want" sometimes might be unrealistic for a used dress. So, we will have an "asking" price on tags. When you bring your dress to the store, we will go in more detail. The cheapest dress last year sold for $25. The most expensive sold for $450. -All it takes is the right buyer and seller!
Consignor agrees to help promote the "Prom Pop Up Sale" via social media (facebook/instagram/snapchat) The more buyers we have... the more likely your dress will sell!
All sales final. MUST PAY CASH. (This is for the ease of our sellers. No need for money to be tied up with credit card transaction fees and such. This makes the process MUCH smoother.)
All unsold dresses and payouts must be picked up at Southern Savvy Monday, March 11th by 6 PM. NO EXCEPTIONS.
Our Pop Up Prom Dress event will be heavily promoted to all area schools. We want everyone to come or consign. We don't care where you are from... we just want you here!
Consigning Drop Off Period: February 18th (During Regular Store Hours) - Wednesday March 6th at NOON. Be prepared to spend 5-10 minutes per dress for check in. We will have a small form for you to fill out per dress.
VIP Night: Thursday, March 7th (3-8 PM) (Again, this is for girls who want first dibs on the dress selection who purchase a ticket and/or our consignors.)
Public Sale: Friday & Saturday 9 AM - 6 PM Sunday 1-4 PM
Consignor Pickup: Monday, March 11th 9-6 PM.
