- What is The Collection?
- The newest branch of the company, The Collection houses merchandise sold at fixed prices with new product added every 2-3 weeks. This sleek, 1,500 square foot retail space is housed within our headquarters in Chicago’s Lincoln Park neighborhood (2117 N. Halsted St.), and it will continue to exist alongside our namesake open-auction eBay platform, which has been the base of the company’s success over the last 10 years.
The store has custom-built, floating racks for clothing, and a steel and glass shelf display for handbags and shoes. Built-in TV screens and a comfortable seating area allow clients to relax in an environment they are familiar with and have loved for years. Customers can now shop merchandise in-person and try on new and gently used pieces in what has been named one of “The Coolest Fitting Rooms in Chicago.”
- How long does the process take and when will I receive payment?
- The length of time it takes for your items to be listed on our site can fluctuate slightly depending on our inventory levels. We list all items in as timely a manner as possible, and checks are always issued within 90 days of an item’s date of sale.
