Click here to view our consignment terms.

What to expect when consigning:

The front window of LuLu's Consignment Boutique in Fletcher NCPlease park at the back of the building near the purple doors (do not block drive thru area), please ring bell & push open door. You will be asked to transfer your items to our container.

We take your name & information and attach to the container. We will not touch your items again for approximately 2 weeks (depending on the number of drops already ahead of you). The people at the drop off area cannot tell you whether the items will be accepted or not. It is a drop off area only.

If it is your first time opening an account with us you will immediately receive your account number when make your 1st drop off with us. We will NOT contact you in any way. Wait approximately 3 weeks before checking your online account for inventory. For your convenience we have it set up so you can access your account information 24/7 online at our website www.ilovelulus.net with your last name & account number.

You will have the option of us donating items we cannot accept or the option of picking up the items we cannot accept up. If you opt for the "pick up" option there is a $10 annual fee for this service (we have to mark and store your items and provide extra staff to answer the door on those dates). During dropoff, you will be assigned a 2 day time period when you will need to return to retrieve your items.

If you have a balance available you can cash out at any register in our store whenever we are open or a check can be sent upon your request. If you have money in your account it will never expire, and is only given to you upon request. If you asked us to donate items we cannot accept and you would like a donation receipt you can contact Council on Aging at 693-7756 directly for that. They pick up a truckload weekly.

How does it all work? This is a common question, you drop off your items and if they sell during your 60 day consignment term you will make 40% of the selling price.

What do we do for 60%?

  • We take your items & mark with name/date
  • We sort/check for any flaws
  • We look up/assign a price, print price tickets 
  • Tickets are attached to your items
  • Clothing is put on hangers, then on size racks
  • Item is sold at cash register! This equals your item being handled a minimum of 6 times. We rent a space, display your item, & provide several jobs for local people.

What happens to items that don't sell?
If you choose not to pick up items PRIOR to day 60 they become property of LuLu’s & may eventually be donated to a local charity. 

The current charities we use that pick up the unaccepted items are Council on Aging of Hendersonville 693-7756, Empowering, Inc., Glen Arden Elementary Clothing Closet, and several other various local charities. If you have items not accepted please contact them directly for a donation receipt. We don’t benefit from the donations, as they are not our items.  We take everything on consignment we possibly can based on past experience & customer buying preferences.

If you have a balance on your account you can cash out anytime we are open at any sales counter.

You can download and print the agreement form (PDF) and bring it with your items for sale.

Thanks!
