Lemon Tree Goods accepts women's contemporary casual clothing, new and lightly worn footwear, and designer handbags. Below you will find our consignment policies if you have additional questions don't be afraid to ask.
October Update: We are filling with fabulous fall items, so we need to limit a bit. Please do not bring handbags more than 3 years old, and we cannot accept any pants at this time. New consignors please limit your items to your 10 best for your appointment unless pre-appoved.
We accept seasonal, contemporary, pristine, designer and high-end clothing, footwear and handbags.
Best sellers are designer handbags, as well as light to medium weight sweaters and tops; dresses, skirts, and gently-used shoes (designer brands sell best). We find that pants are not big sellers so we will be extra selective on those. We love color: good fit; current and on trend; great brands, and designers, all in pristine condition. Designer handbags are always a big hit!
How to get ready
Gather your items by current season, should be no more than 2 years old
Inspect your items for holes, tears, pilling, pet hair, stains and wear. We are looking for pristine items.
Do not remove labels from clothing if you plan to consign them. Shoppers are looking for quality brands. Items with no labels will be priced down.
Launder or Dry Clean all items you want to consign. Again, please remove all pet hair.
Have all items likely to wrinkle on hangars. When bringing in bagged items use a flat bottom bag. Plastic and garbage bags will wrinkle even the most resistant. Clothes that show well, sell well. If you’d like to increase your chances to have your items featured on our online store and in social media like Facebook and Instagram — make sure they look as perfect as possible!
Suits, mother-of-the bride, prom or bridesmaid dresses, and dress pants do not sell well. The online market is better suited for formal dress wear.
Fast fashion -- Zara, Forever 21, The Gap, H&M, The Limited, Express, The Loft, etc. -- doesn't have a high ROI. These brands have wonderful styles but, we again will be VERY selective on what we decide to consign.
Set up an appointment by calling Lemon Tree Goods at (508) 655 - 2600 or emailing us using the subject line of 'Consignor Appointment'.
Alternatively, current consignors who have an active account may use our 'Drop and Donate' policy. Under this policy grouped items should be labeled with the consignor name and phone number as well as the date dropped. Items will be reviewed in the upcoming week, all items not accepted for consignment will be immediately donated to charity.
