How does consignment at the Gear Fix work?
Step 1: Bring in your well-loved, clean, and functional outdoor clothing & gear. For a general idea of what we accept for each season, see our summer and winter gear guidelines below. We are a seasonal shop, so the items we accept on consignment vary throughout the year.
Step 2: We will go through your items when you bring them in and give you back whatever we do not take to sell.
Step 3: We will price your items based on a number of variables, including original retail price, age of the item, wear & tear, and desirability. Of course, we are happy to take your input if you want a particular item priced higher or lower.
Step 4: Once an item sells, we take a commission (see table below for details) and the rest of the money arrives in your account 7 days from the sale date. You can check the status of your account any time by simply giving us a call or stopping by the shop.
Step 5: Pick up a check for your account balance OR use it in the shop on any of our goods or services. Your credit will go 10% further if used in the store.
We work on a sliding scale for rates:
Under $100 your receive 40% of the selling price
$100-$199, you receive 50% of the selling price
$200-$299, you receive 60% of the selling price
$300 & up, you receive 70% of the selling price
If for any reason you want your item(s) back before they have sold, let us know and we will return them to you.
