Say 'Hello' to your Brand New Store!
We want to extend a warm welcome to you and invite you to your Brand New Store in Alnwick, Northumberland (but we're also going to be online too!).
What we do: With a rising concern on the impact of fast fashion on our environment, we wanted to bring a growing new trend for purchasing sustainable pre-loved designer wear & accessories to Alnwick and Online - seen recently in the press and supported by the likes of Kate Middleton and Amal Clooney.
Our products and our business model - acquiring pre-loved, high end high street and designer clothing and accessories and reselling through our shop and online. We acquire the items for resale through commission based purchase or direct purchase from our developing network of suppliers. Not only will you look good but you will feel good. Partly, we sincerely hope, due to the core ethos of Renaissance regards waste, but also because quality feels better, looks better and lasts so much longer than, almost literally, ‘run of the mill’. And of course, very importantly, for those who are buying it's affordable and for those who are selling through our commission based scheme, are profiting both financially and by sharing the ownership of a quality item for others to enjoy.
The Key: Sustainable, reusable fashion. Here to stay with a whopping 49% rise in the resale of luxury items in 2018 and a 447% rise in traffic to pre-loved designer websites. Resale is set to overtake fast clothing by 2022.
What we stock: Hand selected, new or nearly new premium products at a fraction of their retail price offering our Customers large savings and a safe and convenient way to buy and sell. There is an increasing concern about fakes/hassle of returns using Ebay/Facebook Marketplace. We currently stock Occassion Wear including Hats, Ladies Clothing, Handbags, Shoes & Accessories. We also stock a few select Men's Designer Items.
Our Service: We consign items. That means we sell on your behalf for a 50% commission or 35% if the item you consign is of higher value - ie Louis Vuitton. As well as this, we regularly seek out end of line or sample stock. We offer a personalised, professional service for Women seeking to update their wardrobe with the option of Personal Shopper experience by Appointment.
Sell With Us: It's so easy to sell with us! You can WhatsApp us photos of items you wish to sell to 07842 190 654. Alternatively you can email firstname.lastname@example.org. We'll get back to you with what's suitable and give you an appointment time to bring your items in. Your items will stay with us for 8 weeks unless otherwise agreed (if we believe the items will sell, we will give an extension period). After that time you can choose what you would like to do with them, including donating to charity (we like the Ocean Clean Up).
We look forward to welcoming you in Store, but if you can't make it or don't live locally, we look forward to welcoming you to our online community of #teamrenaissance.
See you Soon.
