The curviest event of the year is nearly upon us! Join Dark Garden on July 19th for our annual rummage sale, the biggest single-day event of the year. Savvy shoppers line up on Linden St. before we open to get first dibs on an selection of archive, unworn bespoke samples, and gently loved pre-owned corsets, as well as discounted stock corsets, clothing, accessories, and studio odds and ends.

  • Corsets and ensembles from our archive and fashion shows on sale
  • Unworn bespoke sample corsets, deeply discounted from their list price

We will also be doing ready-to-wear fittings and taking commissions for made-to-order corsetry. However, please note that we will not be doing bespoke corset measuring on this date. You may start an order for a bespoke corset at the rummage sale and schedule an appointment to come back for a measurement intake. This is to ensure the highest quality of service and accuracy for the first step of the bespoke process... and guarantee the availability of a fitting room!

If you've outgrown - or outshrunk - your old Dark Garden corsets, bring them in between June 18th and July 17th to be assessed for consignment. You can opt to get cash or Dark Garden store credit if your corset sells at the rummage sale. Corsets must be dry cleaned and in good condition to be eligible; only Dark Garden corsets can be sold at our rummage sale. Please email boutique@darkgarden.com with, "Rummage sale consignment," in the subject line to make arrangements for consigning your Dark Garden corset.

Please RSVP to the event on Facebook and share it with your friends - the rummage sale is a crazy day, and it's also an absolute blast. There are plenty of other things to see, do, and eat in Hayes Valley while you're in the neighborhood. We'll see you there!
