Here is a store called "Lavish & Squalor" based out of Toronto,
Canada. It's a well known boutique that has three floors and has been in
the game for fifteen years.  They carry brands such as Brixton,
Penfield, etc.  And, when they decided to take Nine in for consignment,
we considered it as a huge leap forward for our brand.Here's the story.On
September 24th, 2012 we shipped our hats and hoped for the best .It was
confirmed a week after that they were on the floor and ready to sell.
Considering it was consignment, profits that were going into our pockets
are not going to be received for the first two months; fair enough. As
the months progressed, we were receiving updates that the hats were
selling and doing really well. However, when it came to pay day, the
updates stopped coming and the answering machine was our only connection
to the other line. We didn't know what was going on and
sooner or later we found out that they have financial issues. The
majority of what they carry is under consignment only because they
cannot afford to buy wholesale or pay for brands that they already
carry. Thus, they take small brands in ,like us, make the profit of what
we delivered, and we never hear from them again . We tried calling,
sending emails or leaving voice mails, but no return. And right after
that we found that the store was broke on national TV. Here the link.
This
is our story, just wanted to share it was all of our readers and brands
that follow us. So if one day you think about putting your merchandise
in that store, either do it wholesale or nothing. Thanks for reading.Nine Co-Founder/Creative Director

UK brands should avoid 71 Queens in Bristol.
Also on consignment. Sold out of our whole range very quickly but started ignoring emails.
After a couple of months of pestering I said that we were coming over to see them, after which they paid some of the outstanding cash. Which led to again chasing, this time on their Facebook page eventually leading to the rest being sent.
So they had the cash just didn't want to pay us.

I think that before entering into a consignment agreement you should contact other brands that they carry to find out how reliable they are with payments.

That's terrible to hear. Things like this situation definitely need to be put out there, so hopefully it can stop other brands who probably have a hard enough time trying to make it as it is, only to be stolen from and lied to by a bigger company then them who's focus is suppose to be helping these brands.
