Every season I clean out my closet and every season, I feel bad about throwing away perfectly good clothing that I’m just not that into anymore. You know the saying, ‘one man’s trash is another man’s treasure’? Well it’s totally true and what you don’t wear, could be someone else’s new favourite piece, so why not sell it? There are tons of consignment stores in Toronto that are willing to take your old clothes off your hands and they’re even willing to pay for it! Check out our list of the best consignment stores in Toronto.
With two locations, Common Sort is my favourite consignment store in Toronto. They’ll take your gently used clothes and offer you 25% cash or 50% of what they plan on selling it for on credit to use in the store. Though they do sell vintage, they’ve got a huge selection of premium branded clothes. Brands I’ve spotted before include Marc by Marc Jacobs, American Apparel, Jeffrey Campbell and more. Because they buy all their stock directly from customers, their inventory is constantly changing so if you see something you like, I’d suggest grabbing it right away, it might be your only chance! Check out their website too see which stock they’re currently shopping for.
Kind Exchange is a new concept, resale clothing store that has more than 12 locations in Toronto. It was founded by Jeffrey Casler and is built on community involvement. Whenever I go in, the sales associates are always super nice & helpful, making the experience truly a kind exchange. All clothing that you can find in-store was donated, traded or bought from customers. Kind Exchange will buy your gently worn merchandise on the spot and offer you a certain percentage of what they’re selling it for. They accept vintage, designer and new styles of clothing or if you spot something in the store you want, you can try trading one of your pieces for it!
Fashionably Yours is a designer consignment shop. They carry brands like Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Hermes and more. Though they don’t offer cash to consigners upfront, they do have an awesome system that works just as well. Once they’ve inspected the product you’d like to bring in, they’ll ask you the estimated date and retail price you bought it for. Based on that, they will determine a new selling price and once the item is sold, you will split the sale 50/50. They have an easy online system where you are able to track your selling items. The selling term is 120 days, where the price is lowered 25% after 60 days and 50% after 90 days. If the item hasn’t sold after 120 days, you can pick your item up or donate it. If you’re looking to shop, they guarantee 100% authenticity and have an online shop as well as a storefront, located at 709 Queen St. West.
Off the Cuff is a men’s designer consignment store located at Yonge and Broadway, North of Eglinton. The store stocks men’s suits, blazers, leather jackets, outerwear, accessories and more, and has recently started stocking a selection women’s designer. Though they mostly buy and sell new items, 2 years and under, they’ll also buy extra-rare or special designer goods. A few of the brands you’ll find there include Hugo Boss, Tom Ford, Wings + Horns, Rag & Bone, Prada and tons more. Consignment is only by appointment, so make sure you call ahead.
