HOW IT WORKS:
I WOULD LIKE TO TRADE IN MY CHILD’S CLOTHES FOR STORE CREDIT. HOW DOES THAT WORK?
Our program is currently only for local customers. Gather your laundered/dry cleaned preloved garments and make sure that there are no holes, stains, or buttons missing. Book a viewing appointment via Calendly. Please note that at this time, we can only offer specific days and time slots for item inspection. Items selected during your appointment will be entered into our system and you will be issued store credit into your loyalty account on the same day.
HOW MUCH DO I GET FOR THE ITEMS I TRADE-IN?
You will get 50% of the price we sell the items for that will be issued as store credit, which can be redeemed for in-store shopping only. The price we set for the used items is between 25-40% of the new price. For example: if you sell us a dress from spring 2020 that originally cost $100 and is in excellent condition, we will offer it in the shop for $40. You will receive store credit for $20.
SO MAPAMUNDI PRE-LOVED IS NOT A CONSIGNMENT BUSINESS?
No, you don‘t have to wait for your credit until we have sold the items. We issue the store credit as soon as we put your clothes out on the floor, it is a service to our customers.
Please note, there might be reasons why we cannot accept your preloved item. For example, if we have too many similar styles in the shop at the moment or if the style is out of season (i.e. a spring dress in December).
MY CHILD’S GARMENT HAS A VERY SMALL STAIN, WILL YOU ACCEPT IT?
The goal of the program is to offer clothes that still have a lot of life left as we all know kids grow fast and sometimes only wear an item once! So we must ensure that all our preloved items are in very good condition: this means no stains, holes, or missing buttons. We also know that some parents remove tags to avoid irritating sensitive skin. If your item has a tag removed and falls within our guidelines listed above, please also include them. These items will be decided on a case-by-case basis.
We inspect all items very closely and reserve the right not to accept any clothing if the condition does not meet our standards.
*Please note that we cannot accept accessories, socks or shoes.
