We're slowing down on intake of summer items, but let us know what you have and we'll consider it. See below for more details...
** All brands are considered. We're mostly looking for unique items that are not readily available elsewhere. We want the items we sell to be in great condition. We do not guarantee that we will take the items you bring to us. The selection process is absolutely not personal to you, your style, or your items. We are simply selecting items that we believe will sell at Lady Bear and also selecting items to complement current inventory. ** See Consignor Agreement below.
Please bring your items in 'camera ready' and 'ready to sell'.
- Free of wrinkles.
- On a hanger (you can have yours back if you want them!) OR carefully laid flat - not folded (again, those pesky wrinkles).
- Buttons buttoned.
- Bows tied.
- Free of stains.
- Free of pet hair.
- Free of any odor/fragrance.
- All parts/pieces together.
- Batteries charged.
If you bring your items in and they do not meet the criteria above, you may be asked to clean up your items and bring them back, they may be declined. It's not personal to you whatsoever! We're 'buying' for what we think will sell in our store.

- Any discounts given to Lady Bear employees or as a friends or family discount will be absorbed by Lady Bear as an employee benefit, not the consignor.

Q. How much money do I make and how do I get my money?
A. Lady Bear staff determines the price on each item sold. After the item is sold, 40% of the sale price goes into your account. Your account is updated automatically when your items are sold. You can then use your credit towards a purchase at any time.
If you want to receive your payments as cash, you can do one of three things: 1) call or text 502-356-4990 requesting a check, 2) come into the store and let one of our squad members know, or 3) send an email to [email protected] requesting a check.
We do not write checks 'on the spot'; payout checks are written on Mondays. Once your request is submitted, your check will be ready the following Tuesday morning for pick-up or will be put in the mail, depending upon your request. We do charge a check fee of $2 that will be removed from your earnings as well as $0.50 for any checks mailed. There are zero fees to use your credit in store. Your earnings do not expire.
Q. How do I know how much money I’ve earned?
A. You may check your account balance at any time at LadyBearResale.com/login. Ask a Lady Bear Squad member for your login info. You may call or text us anytime at 502-356-4990.
Q. Can I list my items for sale on another website?
A. When we accept your items, we invest the time and store space to selling your items. We respectfully ask that you leave your items with us for 90 days minimum. We also respectfully ask that you do not have your items listed for sale on any buy/sell/swap pages while your items are at Lady Bear. Failure to respect this request may hinder our consigning relationship moving forward. Thank you!
