BUY & SELL
VACATION is Buying! Here’s how we do it, and what we are looking for.
We ask that you please call the store or message the shop on Instagram to check that a Buyer is available to go through your items.
Please only bring us clean clothes that are in wearable condition.
If you have a estate or a closet clean out, please get in touch. We offer estate services and liquidations, and we make house calls on a situational basis.
We pay outright 33% cash of what we will price your pieces at in the shop.
VINTAGE is a sustainable, environmentally sound, affordable and accessible approach to fashion. We are proud to offer you someone else's pre-loved garments, as your new favorites. The Vintage cycle should to be the modern approach to fashion!
What is VACATION looking for?
We look for items that are special! We are interested in most eras 1920s-Y2K, Designer pieces, wild textiles, or a fashion-forward garment for our customer to imagine as their own. The very best reference for what we are buying is our Instagram - here you can see thousands of garments we've had instore over the years.
We are looking for garments made from natural fabrics, true vintage pieces which date from Antique to 1950s, Band shirts and collectible t- shirts, Designer pieces from all eras, denim that is made in USA and any garment that is unique, wearable and one of a kind. 1980s and 1990s are also welcome, we love knitwear, anything relevant, fashion forward and fun. We are size inclusive, so all sizes are also welcome for consideration.
We do NOT buy fast fashion, things like work out clothes, 'mall brands' or synthetics. There are always exceptions, but these are great general guidelines to consider when coming to sell to us.
How do your buyers know what to take and how does pricing work?
Our expert Buyers have years of knowledge on garment construction, fabrics, fashion houses and current trends. We buy what is desirable to our customers and strive to sell it at a price that pleases both our sellers and our shoppers. We have a discerning eye and a very curated shop. We try our best to give the fairest prices around!
We buy clothing outright for 33% of our retail price. You get paid on the spot. If we sell it for $75, you make $25.
Consignment is considered on a case by case basis, please get in touch if that's something you are interested in pursuing. Consignment is generally reserved for large quantities and higher priced items.
We buy Sterling Silver and Fine Jewelry. We also love plastics that are pre-1950's and costume that is hallmarked.
Can VACATION buyers come to my house?YES, but on a case by case basis. We ask you to email or message us on Instagram with a few photos of what you are selling. From there we will determine if a house call is the best route. We do storage units and estates frequently, please inquire if you have a surplus!
Why did VACATION pass on my items?
Please, don’t take it personally! We do our best to purchase what we can from all of our customers, but we can only buy what we think can sell.
Important to Note:
We DO NOT hold clothes, you must be present for selling, and take what’s left with you when we are done buying. Dropped off clothes- with appointment only- need to be picked up same day, with arrangements made prior to drop off. Call or message the shop to set up a buying appointment.
