Why Consign?

Because it’s FUN!

We love to see what you bring to us! It’s like Christmas every day in our back room. Our inventory changes daily, it’s never the same store twice. We stage the store at least twice a week, so your items get moved around and seen in a new way.

Because we strive to be inspirational, creative, transformational and savvy!

Our prices are fair, and considerably lower than retail. Older furniture is made in the USA, and the quality is often much better than new furniture. Shopping consignment keeps items from going to the landfill, and extends the life of the piece! You also have more $ to spend in other areas of your life because of the savings you will realize when you become a savvy consignment shopper!

Because of our convenient location !

Our premier Frankfort location results in a constant flow of walk-in and drive-by traffic generated by neighboring businesses.

Because of our Experience!

Since 2009, we have sold thousands of items, and our staff retention is amazing. Therefore, not only do we have a robust, historical pricing database, our staff has become well versed in what the market value is currently for most items. Staff is also aware of current trends in fashion and design, and are able to help with finding just the right items. We have a home stylist on staff, along with a few fashion specialists. We also have staff who are experts in using our Dixie Belle Paint products.

Because of our Charitable Giving!

Each year we have found areas in which to give back to the community at large. Early on we supported a Christian Boarding School for troubled teens.

We have donated to Love Inc. and helped a single mom furnish her apartment so her daughter could stay with her.

We host an annual garden walk whereby the proceeds go to local charities as listed below:

In June of 2021, We raised over $20,000, by God's grace, to support the Roseland Community Good News Day Care, a ministry to young moms, to enable them to finish school or go to work.  Other organizations we have supported throughout the years are:

The Conservation Foundation
Lincolnway Special Recreation Association
Navarro Farm
Journey Pregnancy and Life Hub

Each week we donate items to Morning Star Mission which serves the entire Lincoln-Way area and more. Bibles are available for anyone to take for free, and a prayer corner is present to leave a prayer.

Because of the marketing we do for you!

Multi-layered marketing approach. We have an online store through Shopify on our website, an online presence on FB, IG, Pinterest, Youtube,  & Google.

We belong to the Frankfort Chamber of Commerce.

Because of our Online Showroom!

We photograph all of your items and place them in our online store as well as in our brick and mortar store. shop.evilenasreddresser.com is open 24/7, and we also ship boutique items anywhere in the country. This is a valuable service at no extra charge to the consignor.

Because items sell quickly!

90% of our items sell within the 60 days

Because it’s easy to get paid!

Come in anytime to pick up your consignor cash or check, or reserve it for store credit! It’s like trading! If you can’t come in, checks get mailed out quarterly for amounts over $50 for a small fee. If your amount is less than $50 and you need it mailed, just let us know!

Because you have Online Access !

Consignors can check on the status of their account 24 hours a day.

Because we have a Vote of Confidence from Consignors!

We have thousands of repeat customers and hundreds of repeat consignors, satisfied with our ongoing attempt at perfecting our services to the community.

Because we invest in Security!

Evilena’s Red Dresser is a secure and safe marketplace to sell your items. Our security system provides 24-hour monitoring, along with multiple video camera surveillance.

Because it's helpful and awesome to shop local and small!

According to civiceconomics.com, for every $100 spent at a locally owned business, $73 remains in the local economy. When you shop in a non-locally owned business, only $43 remains with each $100 spent.

There is a personal connection to the community. And we give personal service.

Items are unique because they are brought in by hundreds of local but different consignors.

Your support of any small local business is the best way to show pride in our community and help protect businesses that make our city unique.

Because it's better for our environment than tossing into the trash and overwhelming the landfills!
