How is the item priced?

We price the items to sell with pricing that is fair to both buyer and seller. Our goal is to sell your quality items for maximum profit and as quickly as possible. Our staff sets the price, based in part on their knowledge of the local markets, as well as researching prices on the Internet. At Renaissance Consignment Boutique, each item stands on its own merits. Factors such as brand, style, age, condition, demand, and past selling history all affect the price we will ask. We encourage you to point out expensive and unique items, as Renaissance Consignment Boutique will work with you on the pricing of these special items.
