How does the pricing work?
We encourage you to decide on a price that is fair based on the value, style and condition of the item.

Is there a certain amount of time the item must sell by?
All articles are consigned for a period of 3 months(90 days) Consignor is completely responsible of keeping track of the expiration date. After 3 months, we will call you once to give you the option of picking the item up or choosing to donate it. We work with local nonprofits who take the donated articles such as Madison Fields, Days End Farm, Circle of Hope, and Poplar Springs Animal Sanctuary. Any unsold item that remains at AAE for 10 days or more after expiration of the contract priced at $150 or less become the property of AAE and may be disposed of as we see fit which includes but not limited to donation. Merchandise removed prior to the 3 month contract period is subject to a $20.00 processing fee.

How will I know when my item has sold? Will I get a check in the mail? 
You are welcome to call or stop by the store and check at anytime whether or not your items have sold. It is the responsibility of the consignor to check if the item has sold, and to come in to pick up payment.
