How To Consign




At My Sister's Closet in Chicago, we have been doing consignment since 1981 and we've established an easy system for you, our consignors, to drop off items for us.  We accept only the highest quality brand-name merchandise and over the years we have learned our customer's shopping preferences, so please understand we accept merchandise we believe we can sell for you - it's what our customers are requesting.

Under normal circumstances, appointments are necessary for first timers only.  However, please read the temporary Covid-19 Guidelines as we have changed our consignment policy for the safety of our customers and employees,
