We would love to sell your gently-used clothing for you!
Unit 5 provides an eco-friendly alternative to throwing out your quality goods. We specialize in vintage & consignment items.
What is Consignment?
Consignment is when you place an item for sale but you retain ownership until the item is sold. You’ll receive payment for the item right after it sells!
Unit 5 provides an eco-friendly alternative to throwing out your quality goods.
Consignment not only helps you get your money back for old clothes, but it also provides students and frugal consumers with a cost-friendly alternative to shopping within the Waterloo region.
How does it work?
Our consignment service is completely free. Simply schedule a day to come in with your items. We’ll look through it together and help you set a selling price for each item.
To keep things simple we only add a markup when the item is on the floor, so we don’t take a cut of your profits. Our markup averages between 20% to 50%.
We pay you once the item has sold. If we don’t sell your item within the quoted time-frame, then your item is returned to you at no cost.
What will we take?
We primarily sell men’s and women’s clothing, but we will also take video games, cameras, jewellery, accessories, among other items.
We will gladly accept either vintage or current and newer items.
We do not accept clothes with significant stains or rips. We only resell clothing in like-new condition from smoke-free homes.

Do I need to make an appointment?
No. Although we do not require an appointment, we do get busy at certain times throughout the day, so if you are bringing over 10 items we prefer that you call or email us during business hours to schedule the best time to bring in your items. Ideally, we ask that you come early in the day so we can best serve you.
We reserve the right to refuse any item for any reason. Items may be refused based on defects such as stains, rips or tears. We may refuse to offer consignment services to any customer for any reason. It is the consigner’s responsibility to ensure that all items and any unpaid accounts are collected before one (1) year has passed since the date of consignment. Clothes or accounts which have not been claimed after one (1) year are considered to be abandoned and the consignor (Unit 5) will not be held liable for the loss of those items, or any amounts unpaid. We are not responsible for the loss or damage of any items.
