Bellocchio Upscale Resale requires an appointment for consignment and items are placed on the floor shortly after the meeting. Bellocchio takes women’s designer clothing that is of high-end name brands on a 90-day contract. Once the period has passed, the consignor can pick up the merchandise for a small one-time fee or the company will donate it to the Dress for Success charity with a tax receipt form for donations.

All items must be clean, wrinkle free and no odor. Items will be accepted or rejected on the spot and any addition rejections during the first 48 hours will be notified.
