Welcome to Selling Stuff 101, a primer on the best local consignment and buy/sell/trade spots in Boston.

Why The Closet doesn't have the word dream squished between "the" and "closet" is a mystery to many. Painfully chic vintage enthusiasts flock to this garden-level Newbury Street consignment shop for designer booty, often priced at a third of original retail. Superfans can find the latest hot items in the store on its blog which is updated almost daily, proving both the caliber and swift turnover of the in-demand inventory.
If you've got some killer high-end wears to unload, The Closet offers a pretty hefty 50/50 split and sends out checks monthly. Assuming any of the seasonal, 1-2 year old items you bring in make the cut, there could be a significant payment in the mail upon selling. Call (617) 536 1919 to make an appointment for a 15-20 piece haul.
