The Comeback selects stock based on salability, demand, condition, age, brand, style, season and current resale industry trends.
We take ladies clothing (from size 00 to 22), handbags, accessories, footwear and unopened perfume. When selecting items from consignors, preference is given to better quality, higher priced items new within the last 2 years that are current in style, in season, in demand, in excellent condition, odor free, stain free, pet hair free, wrinkle and snag free i.e. ready to wear.
Some in demand labels are: Tory Burch, Judith & Charles, Eileen Fisher, Burberry, Michael Kors, Lululemon, Coach, Tiffany, DVF, Chico's, Christian Louboutin, Aritizia brands, Anthropologie and of course luxury brands like Louis Vuitton, Gucci etc.
We may not accept items without brand labels, fabric content labels, size indication, or from H&M, Forever 21, Smart Set, Costa Blanca, Walmart, FMX, Ricki's, Sirens, Seductions, Stitches, Old Navy, some Sears labels and other discount/value brands. Although these brands provide great value for the price, we do not profit by reselling them.
We do not accept designer "knock offs", wedding attire, swim suits or other intimate apparel. Business suits and formal wear are also not in demand.
We take care of pricing and marketing your pieces. We consider current market resale pricing, how in-demand the item is, and our sales history.
Items may be subject to reductions.
Luxury items (eg. Louis Vuitton) may be subject to third party authentication services and are priced after research.
An account charge of $40 will be applied if a designer item is found to be unidentifiable/inauthentic i.e. a replica.
You will receive the following percentage of the selling price*: (excluding taxes and any fees i.e. battery replacement, drycleaning or buyers fees)
70% $995.99 and up
60% $495.99 - $995.98
50% $249.99 - $495.98
45% $19.99 - $249.98
35% $9.99 - $19.98
25% $4.99 - $9.98
15% $0.00 - $4.98
You have up to 1 year from the consignment start date to collect your money. We pay out in cash. A cheque or e-transfer may be issued upon request for a fee.
*DON'T FORGET - YOUR MONEY IS WORTH 10% MORE WHEN USED AS STORE CREDIT!!
We require that consigned items are left for a minimum of 7 weeks:
Items $49.99 and less expire after 60 days;
Items $50.00 and more expire after 90 days.
With sufficient notice, we will assist with locating items you wish to reclaim priced at $50 or more: staff time is not allotted to look for items under $50.
Due to the high volume of inventory we process, we do not offer pickups on items priced $50 or less. We feel that we have exhausted all efforts to sell your items during your 8 weeks (changed to hangers, organized by size and category, advertised, marked down by 15% and 35%). At the end of the consignment period it is not cost-effective for us to put any more labour and costs into those items. Items not sold or reclaimed by the expiry date become property of The Comeback and may be donated to charity at any time after the expiry date. The charities we support are Canadian Food for Children and our bag sale proceeds go to the Etobicoke Humane Society
We use security tags and have a security system to aid in the safe keeping of your items. We do not, however, assume responsibility for any loss or damage to consigned items.
Come in and collect your cash anytime or use your balance as store credit for 10% more. If you prefer cheque or etransfer, they are both available for a fee.
COVID UPDATE: Curbside consignment is available by appointment Tuesday - Saturday between 11am - 3pm
Please email us at email@example.com to schedule your appointment.
We have two methods of consignment, a stay & wait (where items are reviewed and unsuitable items are returned to you) or a drop & run (where any unsuitable items are donated directly to charity - we work with Canadian Food for Children). Please let us know which appointment you’d prefer when you are scheduling it.
All consignment will be done at our back door. We will have bins on the back steps at the appointment time for you to place your neatly folded items into (we will not be handling any items on hangers). Please ensure you include a paper with your full name and phone number with each bin (we ask that you fill this out at home, in advance).
Once your items are placed in the bins, you can call us at 416.231.0381 or send us a DM/PM on Facebook or Instagram (@thecomebackstore) and we will bring your items inside. If you are here for a stay & wait, please wait in the car while we review your items inside. We will bring back outside any no thank you’s.
Items are processed in order of arrival and wait a minimum of 4 days before handling. Our current lead time is up to 3 weeks. You will be able to monitor your account online using our consignor access portal.
