HOW TO GET THE MOST FROM SELLING WITH US

Using Lanes Dress Agency to recycle unwanted Designer fashion and accessories is lucrative for all our regular clients. When preparing your items to bring to your appointment here are a few tips to make the most of your collection:

Items that are brand new with original labels and price tags often sell quickly.

We do not accept damaged or stained goods. Our customers only buy items that are clean and in excellent to very good condition. Check for any issues such as missing buttons, lose beads or details. Make sure nothing is left in pockets of clothing or handbags. Always double check your garments before you leave the dry cleaners. Several clients recently have noticed deodorant/other marks have not been removed by cleaning due to different/weaker chemicals.

Although we will discuss the pricing of your individual item with you at your appointment a very general rule of thumb we use is: Brand new with tags priced at c.50% of its original cost (unless current high street sales are prevelent.) Nearly new at approx. a third of its original price. This is not always the case but can be considered as a rough guide when weighing up the cost of cleaning a nearly new item for example.

As a general guideline we do not take in many mainstream high street brands including: M&S, New Look, Next, Primark etc; Any Supermarket or low budget brands. Although a few customers like vintage pieces we avoid garments that may be considered 'out of date' or not collectable at the current time. We take in all clothing and accessories on a strictly seasonal basis.

Although this is by no means an inclusive list, the following brands and designers are popular with regular Lanes customers:

Mulberry, Louis Vuitton, Prada, Burberry, Chanel, Christian Dior, Armani, D&G, Fendi, Patrick Cox, All Good Quality Leather Bags and Accessories, Gucci, Frank Usher, Ted Baker, Louis Civit, Vivienne Westwood, Karen Millen, All Saints, Jigsaw, Whistles, Reiss, Rock N Republic, 7 For All Mankind, Planet, Coast, Oui, Ghost, Juicy Couture, Joseph, Hobbs, Monsoon, All Good Quality, Well Made, Unique or Unusual Fashion at great value for money prices. 

For expensive items, particularly designer handbags, provenence including original receipts will improve the value and can help with a faster sale.
