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 pieces that you no longer want and you think they can be appreciated by somebody else, why not contact me to see if I 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, and no older than four seasons.
I accept items for re-sale by appointment, weekdays - please contact me and we can schedule a time at your convenience. I can usually have a look through and assess the pieces whilst you wait. As you’ll see, my space is small, so sadly I can’t take everything that I am offered, so please don’t take it personally if I say sorry it’s not for me. My focus is designer or high-end labels in nearly-new condition with no marks or damage and no older than three years old – unless they’re stunning vintage pieces.

Also please remember all items need to be seasonally appropriate. I accept clothes, handbags, shoes (new and boxed please), accessories. No fakes! I am very strict about all of the stock being genuine and authentic, I do not accept copies - even though they are some great ones out there - I am afraid they are not for me. Please bring confirmation of authenticity for designer handbags. If there is any doubt, I won’t be able to accept the piece and any items I have taken on in good faith, if are found to be fake, the policy is to dispose of the piece.
Or I 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. I obviously want to achieve a good return for the item you and ourselves, but I 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). I 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 I think that it is worth keeping them in the Studio and/or online for an additional two weeks. I will let you know when this time is up and would appreciate you popping by to collect your items and I 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!
