I just left this store vowing to never set foot in there again... I'm not sure if the other reviews have mentioned the terrible service, but this is the largest problem I've had here. I've been bringing clothes for resale for a few years

OPEN YOUR EYES while shopping at Tokio 7 ?? I got a FAKE Hermes belt from there at loads of $. When I brought back the belt, they don??t even know who consigned this belt, so the only thing they could say is ??everything is final sale.?

All you can read from the faces of their staffs is they don't give it a damn to their customers...

I bought an Hermes belt in the store back at the end of May. A few days ago when I decided to punch a few more holes so I can wear it, only to be told by the Hermes store that it was a replica. I called the store and was told that i had to

I just left this store vowing to never set foot in there again... I'm not sure if the other reviews have mentioned the terrible service, but this is the largest problem I've had here. I've been bringing clothes for resale for a few years due to proximity to my apartment, and a generally swift turnover in merchandise. However, the store has changed over the years, and I would absolutely not reccomend it to ANYONE. Here's the deal:
- The reviewing of merchandise bought in for resale has been delegated to 2 very young girls, neither of which apparently knows much about brands & value. They have rejected merchandise on grounds they do not sell certain brands, yet a quick look through their current sale selection shows otherwise. They accept garments that are torn, stained, or missing buttons- the merchandise for sale frequently has these problems. I have had garments returned to me with damages which were in perfect shape upon my leaving them there. They have started to accept a much lower class of "designer" merchandise, such as Juicy Couture, Free People, and J Crew (I spotted all these brands during my last flip through their racks. The final straw was being told that a bag I left there was counterfiet- not only that, but they chose to believe this based on a customer's assessment of the item, not their own expertise. The thing is, I know the bag is not fake- a friend gave it to me, and it came from her fiance's trip to Europe, where he buys overstock from manufacturers to resell at discount retailers such as Century 21, Daffy's, etc. When I challenged their judgement, the owner came over, yelled at me, and tried to show me how he could tell it was fake, based on the ZIPPER BRAND. Not only that, but I noticed as he was yanking my "fake" bag open and closed to make his point, there was a damage inside that was not there when I bought it in for sale!
There was nothing else I could do but ask to have the rest of my items returned that were still out to be sold, and come back home to write & post this review on every single consumer review website I can find!
There's many other resale shops in the neighborhood to try- like I said, I've come to this one for years out of convenience and high turnover rate, but the abuse from the staff plus downgrade in merchandise & service has helped me to decide to explore other options (even if it is a pain to lug my stuff a few extra blocks!).

Tokio 7 is steal for designer clothes. While the staffers could probably care less about whether you're "finding everything you're looking for," really, who cares? This place has the best collection of designer clothes for reasonable prices. The clothes are generally in mint condition, and the variety is impressive. The staffers are fashion-savvy and have discerning tastes--they've put together a very current collection of clothing and won't accept pieces that are too old in season.

Pros: great designer finds

I liked it but some items were really worn. I shop at Pilgrim at 70 Orchard Street regularly. Prices are better, they have new and vintage. I scored a new unused prada bag for $100 and a dior blouse, a halston hat, gloves that were vintage and a paloma picasso belt all for less than $400 total. They also dry clean everything and everything is mint. I saw an amazing silk JP Gaultier silk jumpsuit there and a brilliant 80s Ungaro dress but was already over my budget. Oh well, next time! i go there about twice a month!

They have a big selection of clothing here but the people that work there just couldn't care about you less. So unfriendly if you have to talk to them. The older man that works there gives you a cold stare if you try to talk to him and will raise the price if he doesnt like you. Nice to you if you buy a lot, snotty to you if you don't buy enough.

I highly recommend going to Tokyo Joe's instead. It's nearby, smaller, but much friendlier. Support the small shops!

Pros: Amount of designer clothing available

Cons: Rude employees, unwilling to help, higher prices than Tokyo Joe's consignment nearby

I went the other night to leave off some shoes for consignment. While I admittedly cut it close (I arrived at 8:17p, and they close at 8:30p), when I got there, they already had a Closed sign on the door. I thought maybe if they knew I was coming to do a drop off, they'd still let me in. Well I approached the door and was trying to motion... I figured at the very least the woman would open the door and say "I'm sorry, we're closed", and then I could say "even for a dropoff?" Well I never even got that chance. The woman inside walked towards the door, looked at me, and then turned the lock to LOCK the door and walked away. I found it pretty bitchy. At least open the door and say "sorry, why don't you come back tomorrow...we open at such and such a time....."

They are really picky here with the clothes they sell which is good for their business I guess, but they are REALLY rude to people trying to sell. Honestly, their business depends on them...why be rude? Makes no sense to me.

I am generally a friendly and easy going person, yet whenever I take my clothes to Tokio 7 for consignment I leave feeling pretty annoyed. They are very picky, which I don't mind at all because this is why they have such a wonderfully edited selection of clothes. The girls that work there, however, speak in Japanese to each other and giggle endlessly while assessing your clothes. It is just plain rude. I will probably keep taking my clothes here, but just thought I would mention this.

believe me, everytime i go there, i walk out with 2 bags full of issey, yohji, and commes des garcons, by only paying maybe $300, i can't find elsewhere to get such a good deal! though they are used, the owner really know how to make it looks nice and clean, so i have no problem wearing them for another couple years!

PROS: issey, yohji, and commes des garcons!!!

I go there every week and when ever I go there, there are new stuff that I like! The people are really nice. (especially the boss.) He is very nice, and hires really nice people. I really like how they speak Japanese to eachother.
He definately has a good taste on clothes because I sometimes feel like I want to buy the whole store!

Tokio 7 is a consignment shop that stocks great finds at good prices. They seem to be very selective with what the take, so it is hard to leave the store empty-handed. They mostly stock designer clothes, so instead of rummaging through Century 21, you can come to Tokio 7 and find that designer frock you wanted, at half the price and with none of the hassle.

Since moving to NY from LA, Tokio7 has been the only store coming close to the bargins I use to find on Melrose (i.e. Wasteland, Crossroads). They have a great selection of contempory used and new clothing at prices that are affordable. Marc Jacobs cashmere sweater for $50, Theory pants for less than $50, suits for $150, great party dresses, decent bag selection. I live nearby, so I stop in practically weekly and there's almost always something I want to buy. Shoe selection can be weak at times, unless you have a size 9 feet, and you have to pick over some of the random stuff. These same items are a lot cheaper in LA though. Now I'm just waiting for Buffalo Exchange to open a store in NY!

Cons: sizes

Tokyo 7 is the only place I will buy designer resale clothes anymore. They have great selection and nothing over a season or two old. I never walk out empty handed because the buyers really know what they're doing.

Tokio7 is a frantic search among racks upon racks of clothing to the blare of hip-hop and the backdrop of a Tokyo used clothing store. I've explored Tokyo on month-long trips for the past few years, and this store is right out of the trendy district of Harajuku! Their prices are amazing for amazing finds, and the sales staff lets you shop in peace but is ready and willing to help. I've found a few Japanese brands (Hysteric Glamour, for one)mixed in with names like Vivienne Westwood and Betsey Johnson.
