How we select our gowns:
Whether or not your gown has been worn, it must be no more than 3 years old. Couture gowns, originally priced $3,500 or higher may be accepted up to 5 years old. We are NO LONGER accepting gowns from David's Bridal because they change their pricing too frequently.
For your gown to be sold at Emerald City Gowns, please submit this form below and we will contact you immediately.
If it has been worn, it must be professionally cleaned BEFORE considered for consignment. Do not pay extra to have it "preserved" in a box, just a cleaning will do! Proof of professional cleaning may be required. We do accept veils, and hair accessories in exceptional condition. We do not accept fine jewelry or shoes. Custom-created gowns are accepted on a case-by-case basis. Please call ahead (510)725-7771. Gowns ordered online from "DISCOUNT designer dress makers" are generally not accepted. Sadly, we are no longer accepting vintage gowns.
After your gown has been approved for consignment, please bring it to Emerald City Gowns. We will determine together the initial selling price of the gown based upon it's condition, original retail price and age/style.
After the sale of the gown, the consignor is issued payment for 50% of the sales price.
We will not purchase your gown directly from you.
Our consignment agreement is valid for 6 months, at the end of 6 months if the gown has not sold we will either lower the price, or you may pick it up.
There is a one-time, $10 fee per consignment.
