The owner of this thrift store requires you to sign a contract that stipulates, "Funds and consignments that are not picked up within 2 weeks after the term of your consignment period become the property of The Golden Hangar."  Now, it is industry standard that if a client's clothing does not sell that they pick it up, right quick too, or they get to donate it or dispose of it. I mean, of course. Otherwise she would be selling rabbit fur coats in June.

It is NOT industry standard to keep your client's pay out if you do not return within two weeks, even if you have the receipt. Think of any pawn shop. Lose your ticket and you are up the creek but if you have your ticket and they sold your item- you get your money.  I honestly think most shops selling stolen hub caps, guns, and vape have a fairer system going on than this proprietress.

Think about the little scam she has going in there. Clients drop off clothing. She sets up some unreasonable hurdles. They don't get paid. She sells free product. Pretty good gig, don't you think?

How's it work? By stipulating:

1. A two week window.  And then....

2. When you come in during this two week window you can only deal with the owner. I came in with my receipt. I was sent away because the owner was not in and "only the owner cashes out".

So then, if you exceed your window, she offers you store credit ONLY. So now you not only gave her free product to sell, you actually pay her for someone else's free product before you leave. 

I mean if I wasn't pissed. I might be impressed.

Honestly, I often have a kind of slant eyed respect for a good con, but this woman speaks to people with a haughty high handedness that makes me want to scurry away to fetch her frozen grapes and a rice paper fan. What truly irks me is there is some kind of rehab facility nearby. Across the corner from her store is a little plaza that quite a feel people that are down on their luck with obvious addiction issues pass their time. The idea of her sitting in that store like a spider really irks me.

I reported her to the better business bureau. I stipulated that I don't even want my money. I want her to eliminate her two week time constraint OR allow any employee to pay out her clients. The combination of the two is fraud. If you live on the North Shore of Massachusetts do yourself a favor and stay out of her lair.
