Curating the Latest Styles and Trends

As a buy-sell-trade establishment, we purchase items on the sport for cash or trade value. We have recently added the consignment option for higher-end designer items valued at or above $2,000 for resale. 

How does it work? Based on the estimated resale value, we can offer up to 50% in redeemable store credit or 30% in cash/check issued the same day. This is different than consignment as you immediately receive a cash or trade amount after the transaction. 

Consignment option: We only consign designer high-end items with a resale value of $1,500 or more. You are notified when the item sells and receive 70% of the selling price.

Selling to Rethreads

If you wish to sell to Rethreads, keep in mind that we are very selective in what we purchase. Buyers carefully curate all items for possible sale. Items must meet our standard criteria: near new condition, brands/labels and current style trends that are in high demand. Wearable items must be freshly laundered, free of odors, pet hair, hair, stains and holes. We will accept items folded in a basket or bin and not stuffed in plastic bags. Keep in mind that only items that meet these conditions will be considered for purchase.

Note: We do not purchase clothing and accessories from budget or discount stores. See our preferred labels at the bottom of this page.

Persons wishing to sell items to Rethreads: 

  • Must be at least 18 years of age
  • Have state or government issued identification
  • Have clothing and accessories in great condition
  • Check for the store’s buying hours

Buy Counter hours:

The Buy Counter is open from 1-5 p.m. on Saturdays and from 3-6 p.m. on Wednesdays. If that time does not work, please email rethreadsmadison@gmail.com to set up an appointment for a different time. Please include the brand, size and item type for each item in your message.

As stated above, we are very selective in what we take in. Our criteria is based on other factors beyond condition and label. Please do not take offense on items we decide to pass on. There are many factors that play into purchasing decisions: current inventory, what’s trending, brand, condition, season, size, material and construction quality, to name a few.
