Terms and Conditions last updated: Feb 2017
We welcome items for sale during opening hours but it is important to make an appointment if you have more than a couple of items, we can be busy so please be sure you have time to talk through your items as it is important for everyone’s peace of mind that the condition and number of items left are clearly recorded. A copy of the records are supplied to customers, please ensure these are filled in to your satisfaction. The collection date for unsold items and /or fund collection will also be recorded on your paperwork.
Items are given coverage through the shop and our online website* to maximise exposure, once sold you will receive 50% of the final sale price less any fees** if sold online. Please be aware that items go into the shop as and when space or item type dictates so don’t expect to see your items available instantly.
Some high end items may also be sold through individually chosen web sites (third party) which may incur additional costs through fees**, these costs will be deducted from your final sale price.
Items may also be offered through local vintage and designer fairs and trade shows which will include movement of items through transport to such events.
Although every effort is made to safeguard your items whilst on the premises or at events Encore Clothing Agency cannot be held responsible for theft or damage of individual items, in leaving items you show that these terms and conditions have been fully read and understood.
SALE: All items will be offered under sale terms once nearing the end of the season they are placed with us. This will mean a lower price can be expected and items will be sold under our discretion.
Collection: Please be aware that all items will need collecting within the week discussed on leaving items, an email and or phone contact will be made to remind customers of collection weeks. If this is not possible you must contact as soon as you can otherwise items will be disposed of under our discretion if not collected in that time span.
ALL CONTACT DETAILS MUST BE KEPT UPDATED AND IT IS THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE CUSTOMER TO ENSURE THIS.
All items bought through the retail premises are sold as seen, items may have areas of wear and tear due to the nature of the pre-owned premise. Buyers are encouraged to inspect all items carefully before purchasing.
As above all items sold through our website may have some wear and tear due to the nature of the pre-owned premise, this is more prevalent with vintage items but all will be clearly highlighted within any listing. Please ask for more information and pictures on items if you are unsure of condition before purchasing. Items are listed or shown in different areas of the company so can quickly become unavailable so maybe withdrawn even after a sale has been processed.

• Match their description
