We Buy From Estates


We buy women's wardrobes from estates.

Handling an estate and don’t know what to do with the clothing? Going through a move, change of lifestyle, divorce, or downsizing? 

Submit an email to: info@lethrift.com to have your estate and items pre-approved. We accept fine vintage and designer labels.

Make sure to accurately describe the items and attach photos, (please do not attach large size photos). For larger estates, please send an itemized list of inventory to be sold. 

A full list of brands we buy: HERE. Once approved, we will set up an appointment to view the estate. Please allow 24-72 hours for us to respond to your email inquiry. If timing is urgent, you may contact the store to speed up the approval process @ 312-912-9676.


What do we pay for your items?

Because we pay up front and bear the risk of reselling the item, paying for overhead and seller fees, we will buy your items at a percentage of the actual value. We will send you an offer of what we will pay for the item(s).

Upon authentication of the item(s), we will set up a time for you drop off the items at the store, send a shipping label or offer a pick-up. After confirmation of receiving these items you will receive a check.

Can’t get to our store?

After approval, you can ship the items to our store free of charge and we can send an electronic e-check after the items have been received at the store. We will send you a shipping label with tracking to ensure these items have arrived safely at our location. Any items that are not pre-approved first we will not buy. 

We have the right of first refusal if the items presented are not properly represented through the email submission and pictures once we see them in person. This includes misrepresentation of brand, authenticity, condition or damages to item(s).

The seller is responsible for picking up these items or making accommodations for shipping within 48 hours after refusal or these items will be donated. 

Have to much to haul in to our store? Overwhelmed with what to sell? Live out of state?

We can come to you, assist sorting and organizing the items and then write a check. If you live out of state, upon pre-qualifying what you are looking to sell, we will come to you. There may be an additional service fee to cover travel.
