“Don't bother”
Review of Secondi

Secondi
Ranked #18 of 71 Shopping in Washington DC
Attraction details
Reviewed 12 December 2011

Secondi maybe okay for shopping (although pricey) but bad for consigning -- I recently decided to start consigning some of my clothes instead of just donating them to Goodwill or other local charities. After my experience at Secondi, I don't think I will bother anymore. I've taken to Secondi over $1,000 worth of merchandise and received about $60 in sales. I'm most upset about a camel JCrew coat - which was practically brand new -- that they didn't even bother trying to sell, but instead donated to charity. I'm glad my coat went to a worthy cause, but I could have easily sold it on eBay if Secondi wasn't going to bother to do anything with it. I don't plan to go back, either as a consigner or as a customer.

Hello,
we were sorry to hear your experience consigning in our shop was not a positive one. We take all feedback very seriously and appreciate all opportunities to keep in touch with any concerns, suggestions, or complaints that arise. We also apologize for not seeing your review until today, we know we are 2 years late in responding but we wanted to acknowledge your review and address your concerns in the hopes of helping you and any consignors or customers who might have similar issues.
We realize our consignment procedures do not meet the needs of all of our consignors, and we try to fix that however we can. In the case of why some items are not accepted, we are sometimes forced to make the difficult decision to not accept items not because they are not in good or even excellent condition, but due to factors such as an overfull inventory in that category or previous experience in how similar items have been selling. We encourage any consignor who may be unsure about an item to make a one-on-one appointment for consignment, so that we will be able to return unaccepted items to them. Although we are unable to accept or decline items sight-unseen, we are happy to answer questions anytime via phone or email about the likelihood of us accepting an item or type of item before an appointment or drop-off.
If you have any further questions or concerns please do not hesitate to call us at 202-667-1122 or email us at secondi.dc@gmail.com. In the meantime we wish you a very happy new year!

Secondi is a great, upscale second-hand store. If you are in search of that designer item from last season, just walk into Secondi. It carries all the brand names - Calvin Klein, Bebe, Ann Taylor, Pierre Cardin, Benneton and more. Prices, however are pretty high. Be prepared to pay $140 or more for a nice Ann Taylor suit. The upside is that if the item has been on sale for a month or more, you get between 20-40% off the ticket price. Shoes are also available and relatively cheap.
