MOSS opened in December 2010 with the intent to bring the world of high-end consignment to Austin in an entirely new way. All merchandise is hand-selected and comprised of both high-end designer labels and popular contemporary labels from past seasons that reflect current trends for both men and women. With new merchandise arriving daily , MOSS creates a unique and exciting shopping experience.
MOSS accepts consignments everyday. No appointment necessary. Simply drop off your items at any time during store hours and a member of our staff will email you when we have completed your appointment. Consignors receive 45% of the final selling price of each item. MOSS accepts seasonal items that are clean and in excellent condition. Items will remain at full price for 30 days. Prices will be reduced by 25% during the second month, and by 50% during the third month. After 90 days, consignors will be emailed and asked to pick up any remaining merchandise. In some cases, items may be pulled and returned to you before the 90 day period. Any items left after 30 days will be donated to Dress for Success or The Settlement Home. Payments will be mailed on a monthly basis for items sold during the previous month. Consignors may accumulate credit for items sold which may be used towards purchases at MOSS.

How does consignment work at MOSS?
You may simply drop off your items any time during store hours. We will look through your items and determine what pieces are a good fit for our collection. Items must be clean and in excellent condition. Please keep in mind that our merchandise is highly edited and focuses on styles and labels that reflect current trends, so we may only accept a fraction of what you bring in.
Do you accept menswear?
Yes! After two years of accepting only women's clothing and accessories, MOSS has expanded to include menswear. For a list of designers we are looking for, please visits our ABOUT section.
What if I don't live in Austin?
If you live outside Austin, and wish to consign at MOSS, please call or email us and let us know what items you are interested in consigning. If we feel they are a good fit, you may ship them to us. Any items that we do not accept will be shipped back to you at your request and expense.
Do you make housecalls?
YES! If you would rather us come to you, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We also offer a closet cleaning/organizing service and if you are interested in that service, please contact Sari at email@example.com
What types of items are you looking for?
We are looking for unique designer pieces and popular contemporary labels that are in excellent condition. This means that the age of the garment is not necessarily as important as the style. We do accept some vintage pieces (items 15 years old or older) but focus on items bought within the last 1-3 years. We carry a variety of labels which you may find under the "About" section on our home page.
How long do you keep the items?
We keep your items for three months. After that time, your items may be picked up, shipped to you, or donated. We may also pull items before the 90 day period, at our discretion.
How do you set pricing?
Pricing will be set jointly with our consignors. We generally set pricing at about 25%-30% of the original retail price. Items with tags attached or from the current season will be set at a higher price. Handbags and jewelry are also often set at a higher price-generally 50-70% of the original retail price.
Do you ever reduce prices?
Yes. Your item will be at full price for the first 30 days, 25% off during the second 30 days, and 50% off during the final 30 days. After the 90 days has passed, you may pick up any unsold items or we will donate them. We also may extend a 10% discount on a damaged item at our discretion.
How does payment work?
We split payment 45/55. All payments will be sent out by check at the beginning of each month.
Can I use my credit for purchase?
Yes you may use your credit in the period before consignment checks are sent out. Once checks are written, your available credit reverts to zero.
What kinds of items do you NOT accept?
MOSS does not accept swim wear (unless with tags attached), lingerie, business attire, or mall brands such as Express, Ann Taylor, Nine West, The Gap, Banana Republic, etc.
