What happens if my dress is accepted?

We will send you a contract with the dress price and subsequent details. NKIN will determine the selling price of all items submitted for consignment based upon the age, condition, brand, style, size and product demand. When consigning an item, each consigner will receive 50% of the item once it has sold. We will decide what we think your dress will sell for, please keep in mind our dresses will range up to to $2000 so the maximum you would receive back for a dress would be $1000, minus fees and taxes   Consignor is responsible financially and logistically for all shipping to and from NKIN. Consignor will notify NKIN of tracking information upon shipment. 

What happens if my dress does not sell in the pop up period?

Please make an appt to pickup within 14 business days or have it shipped back to you at your expense. If your dress is not picked up or provided, it will become property of NKIN and will be donating to an Ottawa based wedding charity.

What happens if my dress sells?

You will receive payment by Paypal within 2 weeks. NKIN is a wedding dress broker and cannot hold insurance for inventory it does not own. While NKIN is very careful and trustworthy, it cannot assume any liability for fire, flood, theft, damage or wear. 

The Consignor understands the customers of NKIN will handle and try on consigned items, therefore, the Consignor should expect to find reasonable wear and tear at the time of pick up of unsold items.

Are your LWD available in-store?

YES! If you would like to try on our little white dress line, please book a NKIN appointment
