Have Items To Consign Or Sell -- Benefit From Our Expertise And Reputation:Here's what our consignors have to say about us:
I consign with Madison Avenue Couture because I know that the right customers for my pieces visit their site, showroom and special events. I know that MadAve strives to get the best prices for my things. I like the fact they will take the extra step to have an open seam repaired, a button added, or a handbag cleaned to increase its value. And, I like that they are open with me about how well my items might do and how they set the prices….CG
I really like the people. They are smart, honest and friendly. And, they know what they are doing. I wouldn’t think of consigning anywhere else…JV
Madison Avenue Couture defines "Class". They have an international reputation of having the highest standards of retail and they treat their consignors like luxury...JN
We attract consignors throughout the United States and overseas. They know that we typically get the highest prices for their items. We achieve these prices because we attract the largest universe of potential buyers through our multiple selling venues and our outstanding reputation. Most other participants in the secondary fashion market have either a ‘brick and mortar’ store and/or website, which limits the number of prospective buyers. By pairing product with venue, we are able to achieve high prices and rapid turnaround.
We only take the top luxury brands of today and in the past. Browse our designer list to get an idea of the brands we prefer. We accept clothing, handbags, shoes, accessories (e.g., belts, scarves) and signed costume and fine jewelry. Items must be in excellent or mint condition; if not, they must be able of being repaired to that condition. We have relationships with the best repair/restoration shops in New York, including Chanel, Hermes and Gucci, and we will oversee the repair of valuable items. While the cost of these services is passed on to the consignor, the increase in the value of the item substantially outweighs these costs.
We also consider outright purchases of merchandise. While we invite people to discuss that possibility with us, we typically reserve direct purchases to the leading brands notably Hermes and Chanel.
