Welcome to Selling Stuff 101, a primer on the best local consignment and buy/sell/trade spots in Boston.
In wrapping up our guide to Greater Boston's prime options for unloading your once-loved goods, we encourage you to check out Rescue. It is only fitting that we highlight this Newbury Street boutique, as it is a beautiful merge between buy/sell/trade and consignment (for those super swanky designer goods). If The Closet often signals "uptown," then Rescue is definitely "downtown," with everything from rag & bone to Alexander Wang and Surface to Air on its racks.
Typically Rescue is highly selective, making sure that whatever they take on is worthy of tomorrow's editorial. So if you think your in-season wears make the cut—feel free to stop by the store for a thorough run through of what's expected—bring up to 60 folded items by the shop. While appointments are not required, it is recommended to call ahead and confirm that inventory is needed, and if so, what kind of merchandise.
On the spot, buyers will determine both a cash and a store credit value to your gear, reserving the option to consign for extremely high-end pieces. Checks are given for payments above $100, and store credit can be used on everything but consignment. Give Rescue a ring at (857) 350-4410.
