Do you have gently-used maternity or nursing clothing and accessories (prenatal/postnatal support bands, baby carriers, diaper bags) that you're ready to part with? We consign previously-loved maternity & nursing items and give them a second life!
***Consignment appointments are open for Spring/Summer (and all-seasons) inventory.***
In-takes are by appointment only; kindly use our online tool located above to book.
Items are reviewed for quality, style, and condition; and we also take "trending" into consideration - meaning we choose items that are selling fast, and on the other hand may not take an item if we have many of the same type currently in stock. As per industry standard for second-hand items, our inventory is priced to sell at about half of the original retail value, based on condition.
We curate our selection of inventory to maintain a high-quality experience for our customers. Things to keep in mind before bringing your items in:
Items must be freshly-laundered. At our discretion, if your items are not “rack-ready” and require laundering (any odors or washable marks), we charge a laundering fee of $1 per item, which is deducted from your pay-out.
If an item is "dry-clean only" ensure the receipt is attached to show recent cleaning services. If items labelled as such have not been dry-cleaned and Dragonfly Maternity is to outsource this service, the applicable fee will be deducted from your pay-out.
50-item maximum per in-take -- due to the high volume we receive, kindly limit your bundle to your best 50 or less!
Ensure your items are free of stains, holes, and strong odors. We maintain a high level of quality for the benefit of our clientele.
Ironing is not required, as we understand items can get wrinkled in transportation; therefor we take care of steaming everything before it hits the racks!
Hangers are not required.
In-takes are by appointment only. Book online to select a date, and then come by any time on the scheduled day. We strive for 5 - 7 business days turnaround for processing in-takes; however it depends on how many items you bring in, what time of day you come in, and previous in-takes that we may be processing at the time; therefor it could be longer. Following review of your items, we select anything that we're interested in adding to our inventory, and from there we will email you with instructions on how to set up your consignor account and let you know of any items that we may be passing on.
Consignment terms: receive 40% of the selling price once the item sells (pay-outs are done via e-transfer on a quarterly basis, for items that have sold in the previous quarter)
In-store credit: Contact us to set up an in-store credit account (can be used towards retail items, fitness classes, and select workshops & events – some exceptions apply)
For any items that we decline following the selection process, you have the option to pick up within 2 weeks time after notification, as our storage space is limited at the shop. Unless otherwise arranged with our team, we will include passed-on items with the regular donations that we provide to Mamas for Mamas Calgary, the Calgary Pregnancy Care Centre, Emma House, and Her Victory; four local non-profit organizations that provide resources to pregnant women in need.
A consignor account is set up online to keep track of the status of your items. Pay-outs are sent via e-transfer to our consignors each quarter (first week of April, July, October, and January), for items that have sold during the previous quarter. Following your in-take, details are sent to set up your vendor consignment account online. From there, you can sign in at any time to check the status of your account.
Our inventory is typically refreshed each season, with sales happening through the year. Sale items are chosen at our discretion.
Any items removed from the racks at the end of the season, we will notify you that your items are available for pick-up; or, you can choose to have the items donated as noted above. Upon notification, you have 2 weeks to come pick up your items. Otherwise, we reserve the right to donate any unclaimed items after 2 weeks time.
Dragonfly Maternity is not responsible for theft or damage of items while in-store.
