Karma Couture Offers Deals on Designer Clothing and Accessories
Karma Couture was born from the belief that “what goes around, comes around” and sometimes, that’s a very good thing. Especially when it comes to high-end designer clothing accessories with astronomical original price tags. The ideology behind Karma Couture is simple; why pay retail when you can shop resale? Whether shopping in the East Grenwich, RI shop or the online store, clients can score high-end gently used or new fashion at a fraction of the original price. The options are limitless with a wide selection of gorgeous pieces from dresses, tops and denim to jewelry, handbags shoes and more. Karma is selective in the items and brands it carries to offer customers the ultimate shopping experience. Brands range from more affordable lines like Lilly Pulitzer, J. Crew and Tory Burch to high-end design houses including Burberry, Gucci and Chanel. Read below for a list of some of the brand carried by Karma:

Whatever it is that you are seeking, Karma is bound to carry it. Shop in store or online for items including:

Are you notorious for buying a dress, wearing it once and hating it? Or, do you buy handbags and get tired of them after a few months of use? If so, you’re going to love the additional service offered by Karma Couture. Aside from offering a source of major shopping, Karma will resell the unwanted designer clothing taking up space in your closet. For policies and procedures on the Karma consignment program read below:
Karma Couture Consignment
In-store consignment: There’s no need to make an appointment for a local store drop off. Possible clothes consignments are not reviewed on the spot with the client. Instead, clients will receive an inventory report via email within three days of a drop off. Items not chosen for consignment are returned to the client or donated to the charity of a client’s choice.
Online consignment: Clients that choose to consign online can process requests by clicking the “Consign Online Now” option on the website. Prepaid Fedex shipping labels are available on the page as well. A pickup is scheduled for the next business day. Consignors must cover costs for item returns, if they are not taken on consignment.
Quality:As a marketplace for upscale designer pieces; only high-end items are selected for consignment. Check out the designer list as a guide on which items are accepted. Items must arrive cleaned and pressed as well as in season. Most importantly, designer knock offs and replicas are not accepted. All items must pass an authenticity test prior to listing online or in the store.
Pricing: The boutique employees are well versed in the pricing of consigned items. However, many times research is still required. Thus, price quotes are not given at the time of a client drop off but within three days as part of the inventory report.
Contract Terms: Consignor’s must agree to the terms including a 50/50 split on all items excluding premier designer handbags, which fall under a 60/40 split. Some of the premier labels include, but are not limited to, Chanel, Gucci, Hermes, MiuMiu, Goyard, Valentino and more. For a full list, visit the Cash For Bags page on the website. Items that are unsold after the 90-day contract time are returned to the consignor or donated to the charity of the consignor’s choice.
Payments: Payments are offered via store credit or paper check. Store credit as payment becomes available as soon as your items are sold. Paper checks are requested online under the Consigner Tools section. Only checks that exceed a $50 balance are mailed.
In addition to offering clients clothes and accessories for up to 80 percent off retail value, Karma gives additional incentives to its clients. Stay up-to-date with weekly flash sale texts sent out every Wednesday. And, don’t forget to sign up for the customer loyalty program, which can help you earn rewards like $30 back for every $400 you spend.
Because Karma is committed to providing exceptional designer pieces in pristine quality condition, we follow a strict condition rating guideline. The system works as follows:
- Each item is given a title ranging from…
- NWT –New With Tags
- NWOT- New Without Tags
- NIB- New in Box (shoes)
- NWOB- New Without Box (Shoes)
- Each item is also rated with a number system, which varies according to condition. The number system ranging from ten to seven ensures that items rating less than seven are not consigned.
- 10- Purchased and never worn.
- 9- Purchased and tags were removed yet never worn.
- 8- May have been worn a few times and has minimum signs of wear.
- 7- Used item that still maintains a good condition. Remains wearable.
Karma Couture knows all about shopping on a budget. That’s why they offer layaway online and in store. The terms do not require a credit check, or finance charge and they give the option of six weeks to pay. The minimum is a $100 total order and only one layaway at a time is permitted. Karma is the destination for shoppers looking to stretch their dollar and look chic, at the same time. The shop gives clients the opportunity to purchase items that are typically out of budget. With a variety of brands and items, clients can virtually fill up a whole closet by shopping with Karma alone.
