Welcome to our SECOND CHANCE Consignment Program, 2.0!
Originally we started off collecting clothing that had been previously purchased only from Bamboo Ballroom, but based off the success of that launch, and our desire to be apart of eco solution in the fashion industry, we are EXPANDING the program!!
We are opening Second Chance 2.0 and are on the hunt for trend driven, mid priced to high-end women’s fashion purchased new within the past two years.
It’s no secret that the fashion industry can be environmentally taxing on our planet, and while we have sourced out brands that are doing their part with water reduction, sustainable materials, and recycled fibres, we want be apart of the up-cycle full circle.
We will be also accepting vintage styles in excellent condition, based on a piece by piece situation.
Selections are made based on style, brand/label and condition. Clothes must be freshly cleaned, in-season, and in perfect condition. We will not accept items with stains, holes, missing buttons, or other disrepair. We accept and sell all sizes as long as they fit our requirements for quality.
You, as the Consignor, will receive 50% of the selling price after items have sold.
Management sets the price of all items based on brand, style, etc.
Bring your items in early in the season for maximum selling time.
Drop off windows:
Spring/Summer season: January - July
Fall/Winter season: July - January
Call or email the store anytime to check on the status of your account.
You can drop off anytime - currently no appointment is necessary! Processing time takes a few days. We will notify you by email when the items we are not accepting are ready to be picked up. You will have 5 days to retrieve your leftover items and after that time items will be passed along to one of our charity partners. We cannot hold unclaimed items longer than 5 days due to storage limitations. Items not retrieved 5 days after we email you will be donated to charity - no exceptions.
Please bring freshly laundered items in sturdy garbage bags or reusable bags – with a maximum of 2 large garbage bags. No hangers, garment bags, bins, or boxes please.
Clothes will be priced, steamed and merchandised in the same taste as our current clothing displays and will remain on the sales floor for approximately 2 months, after which time anything unsold will be donated or added to our discounted area. You may retrieve any unsold items whenever you wish. You are responsible for keeping track of the timeline for your own clothes - we do not contact consignors to pick up their goods at the end of a season.
Money will accumulate on your account as items sell and will never expire. You can use your credit towards in-store purchases or receive a cash payout at anytime for amounts under $100. Payouts via e-transfer are done on the 15th of each month for amounts over $100. Consignors must call to request their payout before the 15th of the month.

- Lingerie or undergarments
- Swimwear (except popular styles new with tags attached)
