How to Consign

Is your closet bulging with beautiful clothing, shoes, and accessories? Consider consigning with Art.i.fact!

Like most consignment boutiques, Art.i.fact has a distinct aesthetic. Some days we go elegant; other days it’s jeans and boots. We wear what makes us feel pretty, funky, hip, and just plain good. Please review our list of brands to learn more.

Please note: You must make an appointment if you are a new consignor or if you have more than 10 items, including jewelry and accessories. To make an appointment, call 505-982-5000 or email style@artifactsantafe.com.

If you are a current consignor and have up to 10 items, you may bring them in during regular business hours. If possible, we will review your items while you wait. If you need to leave them with us, we’ll call you if there are returns. You must pick these up within three days; items left beyond that will be donated to one of the nonprofit organizations we support.

All items must be seasonally appropriate, clean, and in ready-to-wear condition.
