Whether you want to free up space or bought something on impulse, consigning with the Designer Archives ensures you achieve the best price for your treasures. We take the hassle out of reselling your items and save you from burdensome online auctions. Auction sites charge more than 30% in fees and achieve as little as 10% of the recommended retail price.

Using this information we can give you an estimate of its resale value to help you determine if you would like to consign with us. Should you wish to proceed at this stage we will email you an Australia Post Shipping Label for you to print at home.

Please package your item, attach the complimentary shipping label and drop it off at your local post office for shipment to us. If you're unable to drop your item off for posting please let us know and we will arrange a courier collection with a different carrier for you.

Once we have received your items we will email your formal appraisal within 2-7 business days for approval. If you’re sending a consignment of more than ten items it may take more time. If you decide to go ahead your item will be listed for sale on our website and may also be featured on our social media pages. If you decide not to go ahead we will arrange shipping back to you at your cost.

If the item sent is determined to be counterfeit an $80 processing fee will be charged and the item shipped back to you at your cost. Paperwork by a third party authentication company will be supplied if this is the case to help you seek a refund on the item from where you purchased it.

Once your item sells we will be in touch to arrange payment to you via bank transfer.
