We are always trying to come up with fun ideas to get customers in our store... It's honestly a constant struggle to remind folks to shop local first. But it's a challenge we are up for. In fact, we enjoy it. When my employee Kristin presented this unconventional idea to me I thought, "Wow! A win-win for everyone who gets involved!" 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. So our "Pop Up Prom Dress Sale" was born. By the way, I think Kristin will have three gorgeous dresses only 1-2 years old in the sale. You'll have to check them out. Ha!
See, I am in love with prom, pageant, homecoming dresses... Anything that has glitz and glamor. You would never see me selling dresses like this full time though. I would be highly stressed out with my new toddler, rhinestones, sequence, and glitter surrounding us 24/7. (We are around it plenty though with pageants) She rearranges the store daily as it is and I can't imagine the hot mess that would happen if we had this going on all the time. Myleigh loves anything sparkly too so I know for a fact it would be a terrible idea. BUT, we can definitely pull a fun "Pop Up Prom Dress" sale for a weekend and that works out for sellers and our buyers! This also gives a fun opportunity for women to come check out what Southern Savvy has to offer! So.... Get us those dresses!
All consignors must pay $5 stocking fee per dress.
(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.)
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.
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.
All unsold dresses and payouts must be picked up at Southern Savvy Monday, February 27th by 6 PM.
We are taking dresses during our business hours up until 2 PM Thursday, The 23rd (the day before the sale.)
