*Vintage shoes often degrade over time, even (especially) if they are kept in boxes in closets or attics or basements. If the insoles are peeling, if leather is too stiff or cracked, or the soles are deteriorating, we will not take the shoes.

As always, all items that come into the shop need to fit our quality and style standards. We specialize in vintage and vintage-inspired, on trend, contemporary items. We tend to stay away from common basics, but apparel from stylized basics labels like Madewell, Everlane, and Eileen Fisher are accepted.

*Menswear is back at Raspberry Beret! Our men’s section is still a modest work in progress but we encourage you and your masculine-leaning cohorts to shop and consign and help us grow! We’ll be looking for more menswear in 2022, so fill out an appointment request form today to get on the calendar 🙂

Speaking of 2022… if you still have winter items you’d like to bring by, January is your last chance to do so. We will not be taking winter coats in January. Jackets will be considered if they can be worn indoors or are exceptional statement pieces. We are trying to put more emphasis on vintage in 2022, so if you’ve got any to spare, give us a shout!
