Q: How do I sell to Rumors Boutique?
Sell Us Your Clothes
Richmond takes items Tuesday - Friday from 11am to 5pm and Saturdays and Sundays by APPOINTMENT ONLY. You can call or email us to set up an appointment, and we book appointments up to two weeks in advance! WE DO NOT BUY ON MONDAYS!
It is not uncommon for the Richmond store to have a line of sellers outside every morning before opening during the week! If you're looking to get cash for your items, we recommend calling in advance to see how early you should get in line!
Chapel Hill takes items daily from 11am to 5pm.
Periodically, we may extend these hours depending on inventory demand. Check our twitter & facebook for updates.
What We Buy
We only buy items that are on trend and do not buy outdated styles. In general, we are looking for lightly worn, stylish clothing or unique vintage pieces. Bring us items that you find value in, not items you would otherwise be donating or throwing away.
All items must be freshly laundered and in good condition. Please check for stains, tears, pilling, missing buttons, etc, and do not bring items with defects. Please bring items neatly folded in a bag or box. We have a limit of 3 bags or boxes per customer, per visit, unless you call ahead.
We only buy season appropriate items. Please do not bring in bathing suits in December or sweaters in June. If you feel your off season items are outstandingly amazing, call Rumors and ask if we have time to look at your goods and we’ll be glad to set up a time.
Rumors is not a consignment shop, so you do will not have to wait for your items to sell before you get cash or store credit. We selectively buy and sell clothing and accessories daily with no appointment necessary. We have a constantly changing inventory and new items for men and women arrive multiple times a day. We are selective in what we choose to purchase in order to maintain a stylish mix of clothing.
We are currently buying for Summer!
For Men we are looking for slim fit, skinny jeans and pants, graphic tees and tanks, flat front shorts and denim cut offs, vintage swim trunks, band tees (both vintage and modern!), short sleeve casual button ups, and lightweight jackets (think denim, windbreakers, anoraks and parkas!), snapback and strap back hats, and sneakers (vans, converse, nikes)!
For Ladies, we are looking for lightweight dresses and rompers, high waisted jeans and shorts, trendy tops, flowy vintage skirts, cute flats and sandals, and lightweight jackets (think denim, parkas, windbreakers)!
We offer your choice of 35% cash or 55% store credit of each item we accepts selling price. We compensate you for your items on the spot, so you will leave Rumors with your choice of cash, traded clothing, or a gift certificate that you can use anytime, on anything.
We will go through your items while you wait, so there is no need to leave! we ask you stay in the store while we process your buy, which usually takes no more than 20 minutes. Clothing Left at the store will be donated at the end of the business day.
