SELLING WITH MATISA MARKET
If you have designer pieces that you no longer want and you think they can be loved by somebody else, why not pop in with them to see if we can move them on to a new home.
Selling with Matisa Market is easy...
How does it work?
If you have designer, independent and/or High Street pieces that you no longer want and you think they can be appreciated by somebody else, why not contact us to see if we can move them on to a new owner. All pieces need to be freshly laundered and pressed in new or nearly-new condition without marks or damage.
We accept items for re-sale during our opening hours - if you are unsure which pieces to bring in then please get in touch and we are happy to discuss or for you to send us photos via whatsapp of the pieces you are considering re-selling. We can usually have a look through and assess the pieces whilst you wait. As you’ll see, our shop is small, so sadly we can’t take everything that we are offered, so please don’t take it personally if we say sorry it’s not for us. Our focus is designer, high-end and High Street labels in nearly-new condition with no marks or damage and stunning vintage pieces.

Also please remember all items need to be seasonally appropriate - although we do like to have resort wear all year. We accept clothes, handbags, shoes (new and boxed please), accessories.
No fakes! We are strict about all of the stock being genuine and authentic, We do not accept copies - even though they are some great ones out there - they are not for us. For premium brand handbags and leather goods you will need to provide original proof of purchase along with authenticity cards and original packaging. If you are unable to provide this then we will need to authenticate the items by Entrupy (we are a Trusted Entrupy Seller). We hold the software to take microscopic images to analyse that the items appears to be consistent with the profile of known authentic items from this particular Brand and Material. It also provides full financial guarantee for any item that is confirmed as authentic. The client will be responsible for the £25 charge per item for the verifying prior to sale.
If they are found to be fake, the policy is to dispose of the piece or pieces.
Or we can do it for you
If the prospect of sorting out your wardrobe is too daunting, let me come along and give you a helping hand. This service is a great way to review everything you have and sort through which pieces you would like to keep and those you would like to move on – see ‘Matisa Encouragement Service’ for more details.
As a general rule of thumb, you can expect to get back 10–25% of what the item was originally worth. We obviously want to achieve a good return for the item you and ourselves, but we also want to succeed in selling it, so it’s important to strike the right balance when valuing the item. The highest price that can be offered for any piece in Matisa Market is approximately a quarter of its original retail price. The valuation depends on condition, how recently it was purchased, original price, original labels still attached to the item, demand for, size of item and general saleability of the item. The commission rate is 50% split and this is non-negotiable. Your items will be on sale for 8 to 12 weeks online at Matisa Market. In addition to being for sale on Instagram (please note that such promotion is at my discretion — unfortunately I can only list a select number of items). We have a shop policy that I do not reserve items nor can we take deposits on items - sorry! It really is best to check instagram daily so as not to miss out!
Payments for sold items can be made any time on request, but generally, arrangements are made to make payments at the end of the 8 to 12 weeks or before if all items are sold. This can be done either bank transfer, cheque or Paypal.
Please note that unsold items will need to be collected after the allotted time - unless we think that it is worth keeping them in the Store and/or online for an additional two weeks. We will let you know when this time is up and would appreciate you popping by to collect your items and we can then settle your account. Please be aware that if items remain uncollected after two weeks they will be donated to a local charity.

I adore Philippa not only for her fabulous sense of style but for her honesty and vision. I had items that I love and have held onto for years but never knew how to wear. Philippa gave me ideas for how to style them and even had suggestions for pre-loved pieces I could add to my wardrobe that would complement them too. She is most definitely a one stop shop!
My wardrobe edit with Philippa has been a cleansing experience! I was able to let go of pieces I had been hanging onto for all kinds of reasons, which felt good! I now know the gaps in my wardrobe I need to fill as well as having some winning outfit combinations to rely on. Philippa is super efficient and it’s a couple of hours well spent. Do it! Enjoy!
