If spring cleaning has you feeling the need to get rid of a few items (and pick up some cash while you're at it), Selections Boutique may be your best bet for a reliable consigning experience.
The store accepts items from brands like BCBG, Gucci, Marc Jacobs and Donna Karan; they'll also take high-quality items from lesser-known designers. The store offers a 60 percent payout for items over $200, 50% for all other items.
Selections accepts items on a seasonal basis and starting April 15, they'll be taking summer items. They'll price items 65-75 percent below the retail price and items are given 60 days to sell.
In addition to clothing, Selections also accepts jewelry, scarves, wallets, sunglasses, shoe and unused perfumes.
