Consigning

Customers come to Red Pony to find great designer, fashion-forward and unique fashions with an eye on origins, material and sustainability. We keep Red Pony customers happy by offering a well-curated selection of the styles that we know they (and we!) like best! We do this by being thorough and mindful about the items that we take in and the consignors that we partner with. Consignors should keep in mind that items that sell best at Red Pony are those from local designers and independent Canadian brands, although we also accept items from certain large retailers such as Aritzia, Anthropologie, J Crew, Club Monaco etc.

How to consign :

Step one: Visit Red Pony to get a feel for the type of clothing we carry and to see if your style of clothing would be a good fit.

Step 2: Please send us an email with the following information:

  • Your name

  • Your phone number

  • The number of items that you would like to consign (conforming to our standards below in the small print)

  • 3-5 pictures of your best pieces

  • Additional information if necessary, such as important brands in your collection

Step 3: We will contact you within 5 days of receiving your email to book an appointment. Please note that an appointment does not guarantee that we will take all of your items.

Step 4: On your scheduled appointment date we will select which of your items we will take, and immediately return to you the ones that have not been selected. You will receive a copy of your Consignor Agreement which indicates the number of pieces selected and the end date of your contract.

Step 5: At the end of your contract you will receive a cheque for 40% of the selling price and we will return to you the items that did not sell (small print alert! Check below for a few more details about unsold items).
