SELLING YOUR CLOTHES TO CAKE

Buying process 

We buy clothing outright every day we're open except for Saturdays (or event days & holidays). Items must be size XL or larger, in good condition, free of strong scents and/or animal hair, and in season. 

The style of our shop is fresh and trendy.  If you're interested in selling, please read all of the info below! Also, it's best if you visit the shop before you try to sell so you can get a better sense of the style of the shop.

  • Cake Plus-Size Resale buys outright rather than consigning.  We will look over your clothes and give you our offer - 30% of our price in cash or 50% in store credit. You can choose to accept or decline, and the money (whether cash or store credit) is yours right away! (Consigning, on the other hand, involves waiting for your items to be sold before you can cash-in.)

  • We curate our collection. While we’re happy to look at anything, we will make purchasing decisions based on our shop’s unique style.

  • When you bring in clothing, please make sure all items are clean, pet-hair free, free of wear (rips, stains, pilling, discoloration), and free of excessive scent. 

  • Depending on our current inventory, we might need certain styles or sizes more than others. 

  • You can always donate items we've passed on with us and we’ll save them for the next Big Fat Super Swap. (Or, donate them if they won’t work for the swap.)

  • Please bring items in totes or bags - no hangers, please!

  • You can bring clothes in at any time we're open EXCEPT FOR SATURDAYS (and holidays or event days)! No appointment needed. First come first serve.

  • We do not take clothing drop-offs unless arranged in advance. Sellers can shop and/or wait while we look through their clothing. 

  • We buy clothing in-season and are now accepting fall items. Please save winter jackets and thick sweaters till the end of September. 

  • We're actively buying great condition lingerie and intimate fashions for our upcoming event
