Fashion changes...

Coco Chanel

but style endures.

about

We’ve been Charleston’s go-to destination for upscale consignments before Charleston was cool and Avondale was hip. Originally opening our doors in 1989, Ann Shimer purchased Consigning Women in 1994 and added the Mt. Pleasant location in 2007. After seven years of traversing bridges, she decided it was time to simplify and concentrate her efforts in Mt. Pleasant. Store manager Amanda Joseph purchased Consigning Women and took over the helm in January 2015.

Since then, Charleston has grown and Avondale has become one of the most colorful and lively neighborhoods around. We are just over the Ashley River Bridge and minutes from downtown Charleston. We believe, as do our consignors and customers, that consignment should be a way of life...letting fashion that’s gently loved but no longer worn have a second life and be worn and loved by someone else. Smart women know that you can be as fashionable as you want without breaking the bank. It’s a win-win...it helps the planet and our wallets!

No matter your personal style, Consigning Women has the latest and greatest...from couture to casual and fresh to funky. Come see us in the heart of Avondale to shop, consign or both!

Did you know that consignment shopping is probably the only kind of consumption that’s environmentally friendly? When you buy or consign clothing, you’re keeping it out of landfills, where an estimated 85% of used clothing ends up every year!

Closets bulging, shoes everywhere? Bring them to us...we are always happy to have new consignors! We have a few simple policies:

  • If you’re a new consignor with us, please bring in at least 10 items the first time.
  • Consignments are accepted Monday - Friday, 10am - 6pm and on Saturdays by appointment.
  • Clothing should be clean, pressed and on hangers. No stains, rips, smells, missing buttons or broken zippers.
  • Clothing and accessories should be new or next-to-new condition, no more than two years old (except vintage) and current season.
  • We do accept vintage clothing in excellent condition. We will advise if we think it will sell.
  • We will price the item according to condition, style, color, fabric and original cost.
  • You will receive 40% of the selling price.
  • We keep everything for 60 days and may mark down items as necessary. After 60 days, we will donate your items to Abraham's Closet in your name. We will provide a tax receipt upon request.
  • Unsold couture items may be picked up on the 60th day or we will donate.
  • Payments are made in the store once a month on items sold the previous month.

Consider this...when you recycle a single gently used T-shirt and a pair of jeans, you help save a full pound of chemical fertilizer and pesticide from being released into the soil, water and atmosphere.
