What items are you currently accepting for consignment?
We are currently looking for custom riding suits from Carl Meyers, Marsha DeArriaga, DeRegnaucourt, LeCheval, Becker Brothers, Chavez, Show Season, Linda Webber (Hawkewood), Frierson, and individual tailors, etc. for both adults and children. We are still accepting vests from catalogs such as Sterling collection, Reed Hill, and Hartmeyer, as there is a strong need especially in the academy division.

Midwest Saddleseat Consignment Apparel has the right to refuse any merchandise that is not in excellent condition to ensure merchandise of the highest quality.
Are there items that you are not currently accepting for consignment?
Due to our high volume of Saddleseat apparel, we are no longer accepting production line suits, such as Reed Hill Day Suits, suits soley made with polyester, or suits older than 15 years. We are also not accepting any non-custom shirts and cumberbuns.
Will you bring your online store to our stable?
Yes! Midwest Consignment Apparel will travel to your location in Minnesota or Iowa for a “Suit Party” provided you have a minimum of 5 people that are looking to purchase and/or consign apparel. Appointments are necessary. Contact Kristen or Jen for availability. We also hold suiting events in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, and Missouri to kick off the show season.
Can I bring my consignment apparel to drop off directly to you at horseshows?
Absolutely! We will be at several of the Midwest horse shows with consignment agreements and paperwork on hand. Our website will include a list of shows that either Kristen or Jen will be attending.
Would I be able to purchase items from you at horseshows?
Midwest Saddleseat Consignment will be attending numerous shows throughout the season, where we will have a booth set up with our merchandise. A list of these shows will be posted and updated on our website.
How does consignment work?
If you have items you would like MSCA to sell, either download and complete our consignment agreement form or contact us so we can send you the agreement by email or regular mail. When you send in your items to our MN location, please include the signed Consignment Agreement. We will work together to set the minimum price you must receive for your items and then your merchandise will be photographed, measured, and uploaded on our website. You will receive 70% of the final sales price (excluding sales tax) of the merchandise and MSCA will retain 30%.
How and when do I get paid?
Consignment checks are prepared on the 5th day of each month for final sales completed in the previous month. A final sale means that the two week return period has expired or the purchaser has informed MSCA that the item is a good match and that they will be keeping the item. Consignors will receive a receipt of the sale item along with a check for 70% of the final sale price.
What if I change my mind on items I have consigned?
In our Consignment agreement we ask for a specific time period to sell your merchandise; however you will always have the option to have your unsold items sent back at anytime, provided that the item(s) is not sold or “on hold”. If you would like your merchandise returned prior to the expiration of the Agreement, you will be responsible for all shipping and insurance costs to return the merchandise. If the consignment agreement has expired, Midwest Saddleseat Consignment Apparel will contact the consignor to discuss the return of the item or price modifications.
What are your policies on shipping?
Midwest Saddleseat Consignment Apparel will use a reputable carrier such as USPS, UPS or FedEx, and include insurance and delivery confirmation with each shipment. Shipping rates will vary depending on the weight of the items being shipped, arrival time of the package to the destination, along with insurance costs. Items can be expedited for an additional charge.
What forms of payment will you accept?
Midwest Saddleseat Consignment Apparel will accept Paypal, personal checks (however the sale item will not be turned over to the new owner until the check has cleared the bank) and money orders. Credit card processing is currently available through Paypal. There is a $30.00 fee on returned checks.
Why are items marked “On Hold”?
If you see an item marked as “on hold”, it means that we have shipped the item to a potential buyer who is trying the item to see if it is a good match.
We do accept returns on our consignment apparel. Items must be returned in the same condition as they were sold within two weeks of the original date of purchase or from when the item was shipped. All returns must be made via a reputable mail carrier such as USPS, UPS, or FedEx and must be insured.
All apparel must be clean (professionally dry-cleaned) and in good repair in order to be consigned with Midwest Saddleseat Consignment Apparel.
