Frequently asked questions:
What are your rates?
Design consultation, 1 hour on-site: $95
Closet consultation (includes closet assessment and one outfit styling): $95
After initial consultation, room redesign and closet edits both start at $75/hour (3 hour minimum.)
(This does not include any additional purchases needed for the project.)
What type of payments do you accept?
I accept cash, check or Venmo.
How long is a typical closet edit?
This largely depends on the size of the closet and the clients wardrobe but on average a closet edit usually lasts anywhere from 4-8 hours. The project can be split into multiple sessions if needed.
Once the closet edit is complete then outfit styling or packing for a trip is much easier and I can happily help with that.
Do you have suggestions on where to sell or donate my clothes?
Yes I can certainly give you suggestions of local places as well as online selling options. (Please see links below in resources section.)
Do you take any donations away?
I will take one car load of donation away as part of the service. If a specific charity is chosen we will discuss drop off hours and location to see if I can accommodate.
Do you actually list my clothes for sale? Or take them to consignment?
I do not do online selling for clients but am happy to give you some options to explore yourself.
I can also help you choose a local consignment store and get everything organized and loaded in your car but I do not take the consignment unless you pay additional for the time.
Do you shop for any supplies needed for the project?
For Room Design and Styling:
I can shop locally or online for any accessories or products we need.
My normal rate of $75/hr. still applies for anytime spent shopping and time spent on returns.
I do find it much more efficient to shop with the client to avoid too many returns. In this case we will meet and do a fast shop based on what we have already scoped out and hourly rate applies.
An alternative option is for me to provide you with a shopping list and you can shop on your own.
*Deposit is required in advance for any supplies that I shop for independently.
For Closet Edits:
If you choose to forego the consultation, I will ask you some questions to see if we need any supplies such as hanger, baskets, bins, garbage bags, etc. before our first session.
I can do special shopping at my hourly rate or bring any supplies I have in stock.
The cost of the supplies will be added to your invoice. I do not up-charge for any supplies.
