First and foremost, we are real people with a love for fashion and sustainability. We have been in business
since before retail consignment went digital. We are physically present at our Short Hills boutique
and we closely manage our online presence - we’ve been in business for almost 30 years for a reason!
With DBLTKE, you experience truly hands-on customer service.
We pride ourselves on sales experience, 100% honesty, complete authentication, and great taste.
And it shows - our customers are loyal and have enabled us to work with over 50,000 consignors over nearly 3 decades.


After we review and approve an item, it takes about a week to show up on the website and sooner on the floor.
Step 1: Authentication and Pricing
Step 2: Your item is professionally photographed for our website.
Step 3: The item is showcased in our store and ready for its new home!
*Not every item will be photographed for our website.*


Yes! All clothing must be on hangers, laundered or dry cleaned, free of odor, no rips/ stains/missing pieces etc.
We will return your hangers after we have gone through your items. No bags of clothing will be reviewed.
If you are mailing clothing in, please clean and fold neatly. Please also see the consignor agreement contract for more details.


Our standard split is 50/50. You can receive up to 80% commission on select must-have pieces. Please view our Commission Page for more information.


Once you submit an item for approval, we will determine the resale price based on its condition, designer, age, detailing, and more.

Factors in pricing include:

Demand:

Highly demanded items yield higher profits and sales.The more popular your item is, the more you benefit.

Condition:

Pristine: New, Never Worn, No damage, no signs of wear at all.

Excellent: Minimal signs of wear, no damage, well taken care of.

Very Good: Signs of wear, Minor Imperfections.

As-Is: Noticeable Imperfections. Not typically something we carry, but there are occasionally exceptions.

Items we don’t take: Anything with rips, tears, stains, discoloration, etc.

Availability:

This goes somewhat with ‘demand’ in that if something is sold out everywhere, and greatly lusted after, you’ll get more.
This can work the opposite way as well, if boots were just on sale elsewhere at a discounted price, the price we can sell the item for goes down considerably


Apart from your contracted monthly markdowns, we do have multiple sales that occur through the year.
Feel free to discuss sale dates during your consignment review.

Depending on demand, most items sell within the first 2 weeks of hitting the floor. We have a very loyal customer base.

You can call us 7 days a week to check on the status of your account.
Otherwise, just keep an eye out for a check in the mail!
We recommend checking your account during the last week of each month before checks are processed.


You will receive an email with your item prices as soon as your consignment is processed. If you want to pick anything up please let us know within 24 hours and we’ll have the merchandise ready for you.
We can arrange for you to pick up or we can ship it back to you if you provide us with a shipping label.


In-store purchases are always final sale, most online orders have a 7 day return policy. Consignors will not be paid for online purchases until the 7 day return period is over.


Items that don’t sell or that are left past your expiration date become DBLTKE sole property.
The expiration date is the day your item “expires” and becomes sole property of DBLTKE.
This is usually 90, 60, or 30 days from when an item is entered into the system, depending on when in the season it was brought in.
You must call us before your expiration day if you’d like to take your items home.
Please make sure to mark your calendar and call us in enough time to pull your items if you want them back.
Please see the consignor contract for more details.


We are available to review your consignment:

Monday - Friday, 10am-5pm or Saturdays from 10am-11am only. Appointment required.

We suggest you call ahead to make sure we’re accepting the season of the clothing or item you have.
We take Fall/Winter items from August through January and Spring/Summer items from February through July.

All clothing must be on hangers, laundered or dry cleaned, free of odor, no rips/stains/missing pieces etc.
We will return your hangers after we have gone through your items.

If it is your first time consigning with us, we will need you to fill out and sign the consignor agreement contract after your item has been approved to sell.
You’ll receive a starting date as well as an expiration date for each consignment.

Your item will be available for purchase for 90, 60, or 30 days after its starting date, when it is entered into our system.
After 90, 60, or 30 days the item has reached its expiration date. For more details, you can call us directly.

Items consigned after Dec 15 and June 15 will be 60 day consignments and items consigned after Jan 15th and July 15th will be 30 day consignments.
All other months are 90 days.

Items are priced based on condition and value. Every 30 days, if the item has not sold, it gets a markdown of 25%.

You must notify us 24 - 48 hours prior to your expiration date if you would like your items back.
By contract, they become property of DBLTKE if we have not received a request by this time.

When the item sells we split the profit with you 50/50, unless otherwise discussed.

Consignors will be mailed a check at the beginning of the month if an item sells, pending the threshold.
Alternately, money can be used as credits toward other purchases.


Yes! We have a 30 day layaway program.
