Cleaning out your closet? We'd love to give your items a new home!
WHEN DO YOU BUY? You can bring your items in anytime during our open hours (Tuesday through Sunday 11ish-6ish). If I (Jacque) am in (usually Tuesday through Saturday), I can settle you up same day, especially if its just a bag or two. If I'm out, you can leave your bag (s) with your name and number and I'll get back to you asap! Usually within a day or two!
DO I NEED AN APPOINTMENT: Nope. But if you want to know if the buyer is in, you can text 818-839-1992.
IS THERE AN ITEM LIMIT: Nope! You can bring in however much you'd like. 6 hefty bags? Sure.
CONDITION OF ITEMS?: Obviously we're a used clothing shop and we don't expect things to be perfect, especially in vintage. But you guys are not into things that require a lot of work to make useful. So this means you don't like things with gnarly stains, rips (that are not meant to be there), or broken zippers. You also don't seem to like sweaters that have lots of pilling. And we always LOVE when items smell fresh and clean and so do you!
WHAT DO YOU BUY/TRADE: We buy what you guys like! We are always looking for ladies clothing in good, clean condition, breathable fabrics and flattering cuts. We buy everything from Forever 21 to Chanel. We also buy shoes, accessories and small home accessories. The weird thing about buying and trading, is we can't always buy what WE like, we buy what you guys are buying. We understand how meaningful and special all of your items are, so we take great care in treating all your items with respect.
MORE SPECIFICALLY: SPRING/SUMMER
THIS IS BY NO MEANS A DEFINITIVE LIST, WE LOVE LOOKING AT EVERYTHING! WE CANT EVEN IMAGINE THE FUN THINGS WE HAVEN'T SEEN YET!
But here's what you guys seem to be buying from us right now:
-Good denim in pants or shorts form, mid to high rise. Also jackets, and overalls both long and short.
-Dresses in breathable fabrics and flattering cuts
-Classic crew neck tees, contemporary and vintage.
-Bodysuits, jumpsuits, rompers, and bathing suits.
-Blouses/Tops/Crops with minimal hardware and without ruching. You guys seem to prefer cotton, linen, silk, rayon, and cashmere. Poly blends you'll do in designer and contemporary, but not so much vintage. You love easy white summer blouses.
- Graphic prints and floral prints, fun 80s prints and tropical prints, stripes, vibrant colors, gingham, polkadots, eyelet.
-And on the other end of the color spectrum, muted desert tones of blush, olive, brick, taupe, cream, etc.
-Shoes: Best selling are size 6.5-9.5 and in oxfords, slides, mules, leather sandals, block heels, espadrilles, huaraches, loafers and fun flats. We love looking at heels because sometimes you guys have some super special ones, but traditional heels in general are a tougher sell these days.
-Crossbody leather bags. Contemporary bags with minimal hardware. Sisal bags, straw bags, and other "vacation/farmers market" bags. Vintage metal/metallic bags.
-Homewares: ceramics, baskets, bowls, glasses, serving dishes, mirrors, wall hangs, textiles.
-See our instagram @theleftbankla to see our general "style"
DO YOU CONSIGN?: sometimes with higher end items we will consign, but only in very limited cases. We tend to buy outright. This means we go through your items and offer you a 30% in cash of what we think your items will sell for. Or we offer a 40-45% store credit or "trade". When you consign and leave your items, you will get slightly more.
DO YOU ACCEPT FURNITURE? We will accept limited amounts of smaller furniture like chairs and side tables, mirrors and lamps. But we just don't have the room for beds, big tables, couches, etc.
DO YOU PICK UP? Right now, we're a little strapped on time and hands, so we appreciate you bringing items into us. If you have an "estate style" clean out of a house, we can sometimes arrange to come to you!
DO YOU DO GUYS STUFF?: if the item is neutral enough to sell to a lady, then yup! But we typically gear things towards the ladies.
