As Be Savvy Chic grows (yay!), I thought it might be helpful to post a few answers to the most Frequently Asked Questions.  Let me know if there are other questions you would like to see included on this list!

Sales Tax

As of April 1, 2013, Be Savvy Chic is going legit!  Sales tax will now be applied to all orders.  I had planned to hold off another year on this step, but with current sales volume, my accountant thought it was a little too risky to wait!


Be Savvy Chic is happy to ship your order!
-Small Flat Rate box $6
-Medium Flat Rate box $12
-Large Flat Rate box $16
-Larger package, I will weigh and give you a shipping estimate.

If the medium or large flat rate boxes are not the best price, I try to package it in a different box. Usually for larger orders I can give you a price reduction to partially offset shipping.


Be Savvy Chic accepts cash, check, money order, or Paypal.  Paypal charges 3%, so that fee will be added to your total if paying in this way.

Items On Hold

If you see an item you like  in a Facebook or Blog post, just let me know and I am happy to hold the item for you to try on!  I will hold the item for one week, or if you mail payment, I will hold it longer.  If you mail payment, but then change your mind about the item, your payment can be applied to your next order.

Personal Shopping

I love to do personal shopping!  If you have a specific item you are looking for, just let me know.  If I see something I think you might like, I can txt you pictures and price to see if you're interested.  I prefer to get your approval before purchasing;  however, in general you are not committed to buying the item. In certain cases, if I do not think I can resell or return an item, I will let you know up front so you can decide if you want to commit to the purchase.

Once I purchase an item specifically for you, we can schedule a time within the next week for you to come try it on.  Or, you can mail payment, and I will hold it until we can schedule an appointment at your convenience.

Purchasing Inventory

I typically shop at Goodwill, Thrift Stores, and Sale Racks.  Also, I am happy to take your donations!  If you have items you were intending to take to Goodwill, I am happy to come pick up your entire donation, filter out the items I can re-sell, and deliver the rest to Goodwill for you.  It is VERY helpful to get these donations!  It helps keep Be Savvy Chic prices low and passes greater savings on to our Savvy Chicks!

If you have clothing items that you are trying to sell, (whether for an adoption fundraiser or just because you need the cash!)  I usually suggest that you try to sell them for as much as you can first.  However, if that doesn't work, I can sometimes pay up to $2 apiece for items.  I do try to strictly limit how much I spend on inventory month to month, so I sometimes cannot buy items when asked. 

Giving Back 

As of January 1, 2013, Be Savvy Chic has donated at least 10% of every dollar spent to Redline United (www.redlineunited.org), the organization that helped bring my niece and nephew into our family.  So far, all of these donations have been designated to a specific family.

Also, some of our clothing purchases have now been from adoption fundraisers,  which is a way we can give even MORE.  If I buy a shirt for $2 from an adoption yard sale, then sell it for $5 and donate 10% of that sale, then 50% of the purchase price of that item went directly to helping bring orphans home!

Be Savvy Chic has also had opportunities to donate clothing items to people in need via school collections, angel trees, etc.  We look forward to more of these opportunities in the future!
