WHY CONSIGN WITH KOSTÜM…
We hand select only the most desirable items for our store. Our Kostüm Krew members know quality and have built a loyal following of “Kostümers” who shop frequently, looking for new treasures to be readily available. Consigning with us allows you to join a close-knit group of fashion-conscious, eco-friendly insiders, who can identify what’s authentic, is high-quality and in the best condition.
If you have looked in your closet and found amazing treasures you no longer desire, then consigning at Kostüm is the way to turn those goodies into extra cash!!! Kostüm is the destination for Contemporary, Designer and Vintage consignment, in the East Bay Area. Some of the labels we carry, Marc Jacobs, Gucci, Sandro, Prada, Judith Leiber, Michael Kors, Vera Wang, Oscar De La Renta and Kate Spade…to name a few. View and print our consignor contract here.
