Normally, you can’t sell your dress to a consignment shop. They sell it for you and retain a percentage of the sale price. I have sold a lot of clothes through consignment shops and none of them bought any garments outright.

I’m actually curious about this, too. What percentage do you usually get back from the dress? And how much does the consignment shop take? Do they wait to pay you fully until they sell it?

The one near me takes 50%. Some do a gradual percentage, the longer it takes to sell.
