We retain items for consignment for a minimum of 90 days to ensure we have enough time to sell an item. If you wish to pick up before this date we may charge a 15% fee.
➜ Will you tell me what you will price my item at?
All items are typically priced 20-70% below retail, including sale prices, depending on their age, condition and popularity. The higher the markdown from retail the more common an item in the resale market. A Chanel bag will always get a lower markdown than other branded bags, for example. If your items is priced at a resale value over $500 we will call or email you to confirm the best price for your item. If priced below a resale value under $500 we price the item according to market resale value without informing you.

We do provide layaway after the item has been in the store for a minimum of 30 days. A 30% deposit on the resale price is required on the first day, 30% on 31st day and balance with taxes on the 60th day. All deposits are non-refundable. If the balance is not paid in the timely manner expected, the deposits are shared between Wilder’s and the consignor. The consignor receives the agreed portion of their percentage on the deposits paid and the item is put back on the sales floor at the original price.
➜ Do you negotiate on pricing with customers?
We do not negotiate on pricing. We do review offers. With each consignor item priced over $500 and an offer over 10% of the stated price, the consignor is called to approve the offer.
