Why it makes sense to buy or sell at SILO

It's sustainable

Passing on beautiful clothes creates joy, but also helps the planet. Because vintage fashion is an important building block of the circular economy. The longer we use clothes, the more CO2 we save. It also reduces textile waste. At SILO, we strive for a company culture that is as sustainable as possible - for example, with used packaging materials and a vintage shop design.

It's respectful

Beautiful clothes are usually produced with a lot of effort and love. The people along the textile chain who make our clothes, as well as the clothes themselves, deserve our respect. At SILO, all clothes and accessories are therefore cared for and presented in the very best light. For this, we work together with professionals and thus create jobs to preserve creative potential.

It's easy

Mostly clothes slumber in closets for years because the effort to sell them on second-hand channels is high. This is exactly where SILO comes in. We want to make selling your clothes as easy as possible. You don't have to invest hours in fancy photos, sophisticated texts or answering customer queries. Just put your clothes in our hands. We'll do the rest.

It's smart

Cleaning out your wardrobe regularly creates space. As well as in your head. But it's important to remember that valuable clothes need to be worn. They are neither suitable as dust collectors nor do they belong in the clothes recycling bin. It is smarter to pass on preloved fashion items. This brings money for new styling or for other projects of the heart beyond fashion. If you need professional help sorting out your clothes, book our all-inclusive service.

We will select the pieces that fit SILO. Please send the fashion items we have selected to the following address: Lindenstraße 34, 50674 Cologne.

And then?

We take care of the rest.
Your preloved fashion items are in the best hands with us: We have them ironed, styled and photographed by professionals. Then we present them in our boutique in the centre of Cologne and/or online on Instagram - with all the information that is important for the next owner. We answer questions from prospective buyers and handle the sale for you. You have nothing more to do, we take care of everything.
Once your fashion item is sold, the proceeds are paid to you. If you desire, you can be paid monthly from a minimum revenue of 100 euros or after the commission contract has been fulfilled (90 days) by bank transfer to your account or via Paypal.
Please see our terms and conditions for details.

How much?

These are our commission conditions:
up to 500 € 55 % 45 %
501- 1000 € 60 % 40 %
from 1001 € 70 % 30 %

What else?

Wearing and selling second-hand is no longer just about trends, but about a new attitude towards consumption. In cooperation with SILO, you make a contribution to making the fashion industry more circular. In addition, you can do something charitable (without obligation). If you give your consent, we will deduct one euro from each of your sold pieces and add another euro from our pocket to support a charitable cause with this money. With this donation we want to contribute together with you either to the improvement of the environment or to a better future of social conditions in fashion.
SILO works with two NGOs from which you can choose your favourite charity project.
You can find more information about the two NGOs under the section Responsibility.
We are looking forward to receiving your vintage fashion items.


I don't live in Cologne, how can I drop off my clothes at SILO?

Besides the drop-off for customers from the Cologne area, there are also other ways to send us your clothes, shoes and accessories. You can send them to us or - if you have particularly valuable pieces - we can come to you personally. Please see all possibilities in the How to Sell section.

Does SILO only take designer fashion?

We have decided against a list of fixed brand names, whereby quality, workmanship and design aspirations are of central importance to us in the selection process. We love clothes that tell us stories. So a high-quality vintage original from the 70s or an unusual designer cooperation with a fast-fashion label also fits into our concept. We are open. If you are unsure, send us an email to hello@silo.boutique and feel free to send us several photos of the garment.

Why are SILO's commissions higher than those of other online second-hand sellers?

SILO's concept is based on making it as easy as possible for customers to sell their preloved fashion items. We offer an all-round service and also a dual sales channel, namely online and stationary in our self-managed shop in the centre of Cologne. This increases the chance that your goods will sell faster. Thanks to our professional treatment, each garment is also presented in a valuable and attractive way for sale. This also increases the sales revenue. We want to save you work and time. Because selling second-hand clothes is time-consuming, tedious and costs hours and hours.
We are quite honest: If you have time enough to style your clothes, take pictures, create product descriptions, upload them, answer questions from potential buyers, pack them up after you have found a deal, take the goods to the post office and check the payment, you will certainly sell at better conditions with other second-hand sellers.

I want to buy a garment but can't get to Cologne?

EJust click on our Instagram profile to see what we have to offer. We provide extensive information about each item of clothing so that you are well informed. If you like to buy something, just send us an email to Iwantthis@silo.boutique. We will reply immediately, organise the sale and send the goods to your home.

Can I exchange or return items purchased from SILO?

As all other second-hand sellers who work on commission, i.e. on behalf of private sellers, we unfortunately can not accept returns. More details on our terms and conditions. If a purchased item doesn't fit or you don't like it, you can resell it with us at special conditions.

Does SILO offer an authenticity check?

The two founders are proven fashion experts with many years of experience in the luxury segment. They know the subtleties of a seam or good workmanship. At SILO, every garment is put through its paces before it is included in the assortment. If authenticity documents (e.g. invoices or the brand's own authenticity cards) are available, they are of course included and passed on to the new owner. Our most important authenticity check, however, are the SILO customers themselves: We pay very close attention to where we source our clothes.

Which countries does SILO deliver to?

Sustainability is one of our corporate principles. We don't think much of sending a garment around the globe. SILO itself is based in Germany and France. Therefore it makes sense to ship throughout the EU. We make exceptions for countries that do not belong to the European Union but are located in Europe. Unfortunately, higher shipping charges apply here.

The following General Terms and Conditions (GTC) govern the contractual relationship between SILO GbR (hereinafter referred to as SILO), represented by the two shareholders Silke Bücker and Barbara Markert, and their clients and buyers. The GTC apply to the use of the SILO website and all subdomains belonging to this domain plus deliveries and services arising in the normal business relationship between SILO and its clients and users. The version valid at the time of the conclusion of the contract shall be authoritative in each case.
Purchasers and clients within the meaning of these Terms and Conditions are natural persons who enter into a business relationship with SILO without this being attributable to their commercial or independent professional activity.

Conclusion of Contract

The offers in the brick-and-mortar shop as well as on the e-shop of SILO's Instagram account constitute a non-binding invitation to the buyer to purchase or order goods. In the normal sales process, SILO acts as a commission agent, i.e. on behalf of and as an authorised representative of the seller/owner of the goods under private law. Trading takes place in the SILO's own name and for the account of a third party. In exceptional cases, SILO may also offer its own items or items from commercial sellers on the website. These shall be marked accordingly.
Products are sold for private use only. In the e-Shop, the purchase is made via a private exchange between the purchaser and SILO. If the purchaser accepts the offer, he/she will receive an order confirmation by e-mail, which will set the deadline for payment. In the event of non-payment, the offer shall be deemed to have been rejected. The conclusion of the contract becomes null and void.


The prices published on price labels in our stationary boutique or in the e-shop are stated in EURO. The prices represent final prices including VAT. Shipping costs are not included.

Minimum order value

There is no minimum order value.

Delivery areas

SILO ships goods exclusively to countries in the European Community (EU). By arrangement, deliveries to other European countries that are not part of the EU can be accepted.

Delivery time

The delivery time within Germany is usually 2-5 working days after receipt of the purchase price. International deliveries within Europe may take longer depending on the country. The shipping address should be chosen so that the package can be delivered during the day.

Shipping costs

The buyer is responsible for shipping costs. The costs of delivery are calculated according to weight and destination in accordance with the currently applicable scale of charges of Deutsche Post/DHL. SILO shall inform the purchaser in advance of the expected costs. During the checkout process in the e-Shop, the purchaser may assert his right to collect the goods himself in the shop.

Shipping partner

Deliveries are sent by Deutsche Post/DHL during normal working hours on working days.

Payment, due date, default of payment

Payment for goods is made in the shop by cash, EC/Girocard or credit card (Visa, Mastercard, Maestro, V Pay, American Express). Deliveries in the e-Shop are only made by prepayment via PayPal or bank transfer. Items purchased online can also be collected from the boutique using the means of payment mentioned above. Items ordered and not yet prepaid must be collected from the boutique within 5 working days, otherwise they will be released for sale again. When paying in advance for goods from the e-Shop, the purchaser undertakes to transfer the purchase price within 5 working days after conclusion of the contract to the following account of SILO GbR at Deutsche Bank: IBAN DE48 3707 0024 0227 7986 00, BIC DEUTDEDBKOE.


The object of purchase shall remain the property of SILO and the property of the principal until payment has been made in full.


Complaints due to defects not disclosed in the product description or in the customer discussion or due to incomplete or incorrect delivery shall be notified to us in writing by e-mail or letter without delay, but no later than 72 hours after receipt of the goods. The same deadline applies in the event of doubts about the brand authenticity of a product.

Right of revocation and return

There is no legal right of revocation or return due to dissatisfaction or problems with fit for goods purchased on commission in bricks-and-mortar stores. The same applies to goods ordered in the e-shop that are offered as goods on consignment by private sellers within the meaning of §13 of the German Civil Code (normal case for SILO). The 14-day right of revocation and return customary in online commerce shall apply exclusively to goods from commercial sellers that are identified as such by SILO.
Items purchased and ordered online will only be taken back against reimbursement of the purchase price in the event of damage that clearly reduces the use of the goods, which was neither described in the product description nor addressed in the customer conversation. In order to exercise your right of withdrawal, you must inform us by means of a written statement (e.g. letter sent by post or e-mail) within 48 hours.

Consequences of the revocation

If the contract is cancelled, we will refund at most the purchase price of the item. Subsequent costs or shipping costs already incurred or necessary for the return are not refundable. For the reversal, we will use the same means of payment that you used for the original transaction. The refund will only be made once the goods have been returned to SILO. You must return or hand over the goods to us immediately and in any case no later than 48 hours from the day on which you notify us of the cancellation of this contract. You shall be liable for any loss in value of the goods if such loss in value is due to any deterioration of the goods caused by you through improper use.


Claims for damages due to errors in illustrations and texts or due to late delivery and non-delivery remain strictly excluded. The colour of the products illustrated in the online shop may differ from the actual product colour.

General terms and conditions for consignment clients of SILO GbR

Subject matter of the contract

A consignment contract shall be concluded between the principal and SILO GbR as commission agent.
The consignment client shall hand over the goods on commission to SILO GbR for sale and, by accepting the General Terms and Conditions, assures that the goods on commission are his/her unrestricted property and free of third-party rights.
After the expiry of the consignment contract, SILO shall take custody of the goods on commission for 30 days in accordance with the following provision.

Duration of the Commission Contract

The commission contract begins with SILO's acceptance of the goods on commission and lasts for 90 days for non-seasonal articles. For seasonal items (e.g. swimming costumes, winter hats, winter coats, summer dresses), a longer commission contract may be agreed between the commission agent and SILO. This will be recorded in the commission form. After expiry of the commission period, the commission contract ends automatically.

Ordinary termination of the contract and custody period

From the end of the commission period mentioned above, SILO will take custody of unsold commission goods for a period of 30 days (custody agreement). The consignment client undertakes to collect unsold commission goods within this 30-day custody period. Collection is only possible by prior appointment.

Non-collection during the custody period

If the goods on consignment are not collected during the term of the custody agreement, the items shall become the property of SILO without the principal receiving any financial compensation. SILO is not obliged to inform the consignement client of this fact.

Collection or reclaiming of goods during the commission contract

The consignement client may terminate the commission contract prematurely during the term of the contract without giving reasons, provided that the goods on commission have not yet been sold or reserved at the time of termination. Termination after the sale or reservation of the goods on commission is excluded. In the event of premature termination of the commission contract, SILO shall charge a flat-rate expense allowance of EUR 50 per recalled piece of commissioned goods.

Condition of the goods on commission

The goods on consignment must be clean, in good working order and without any defects that would impair their function. Obvious or deliberate defects must be reported by the consignement client at the time of handover.


The consignement client undertakes that the goods handed over to SILO on consignment are authentic. This means that the branded goods are "genuine", i.e. neither a plagiarism nor an imitation (replica). If proof of authenticity exists, such as invoices or cards with serial numbers, these must be handed over to SILO for resale. These certificates of authenticity will be passed on with the goods to the future owner. Furthermore, SILO is entitled to investigate any doubts regarding authenticity. Any costs for the certificate of authenticity will be added to the sales price and must be reimbursed by the consignement client to SILO against invoice in the event of non-sale. In this case, the new certificate of authenticity will be handed over to the consignement client upon return of the goods. The consignement client shall be liable for all claims under civil law that may arise from the sale of non-authentic products.
The consignement client also undertakes to state if a product has already been purchased by him/her as second-hand goods.

Defect detection after goods acceptance

After acceptance of the goods, SILO subjects the commissioned goods to a detailed quality and authenticity check as well as a defect check. If defects are discovered that were not detected at first glance upon acceptance, these are documented on the commission form and communicated to the consignement client. In consultation, the two parties agree whether the goods will be transferred to the commission business at a reduced sales price or whether the commission contract will be terminated. In this case, the consignement client must collect the goods within one week (7 days).


SILO shall endeavour to achieve the best possible sales price for the goods on commission in line with the market. Pricing is based on expertise, market research and experience.
If the consignement client does not have any ideas about the selling price when handing over the goods on consignment, SILO is free to set a price at its own discretion and without consulting the consignement client. If the consignement client expresses a desired minimum revenue, this will be taken into account in the pricing and recorded in writing in the commission form. If the fixed sales price exceeds the desired minimum proceeds, the goods will be released for sale without further consultation with the consignement client.
If the sales price falls below the desired minimum proceeds, SILO will contact the consignement client for consultation. In this case, the consignement client has the right to withdraw from the commission contract within one week (7 days) and must collect his goods. If the goods on consignment are already registered with SILO, an expense allowance of 10 euros per product may be charged in this case. If the commission taker does not react or does not collect the goods within the deadline, the goods on commission will be put on sale at the price set by SILO.

Settlement of the commission business

SILO executes the commission business in its own name for the account of the consignement client. The sale may be conducted via the stationary trade and/or the e-shop (Instagram). SILO is free to determine the sales channel without consulting the consignement client.
The consignement client shall be entitled to the following commission shares of the gross sales proceeds - subject to other agreements in individual cases, which shall be recorded in writing on the commission form:
Sales price Consignement client SILO
up to 500 € 55 % 45 %
501- 1000 € 60 % 40 %
from 1001 € 70 % 30 %


In the event of damage to the goods on consignment and the associated reduction in value, theft and burglary, SILO shall be liable for 50% of the commission share of the sales proceeds to which the consignement client is entitled. No liability shall be assumed in the event of force majeure.

Legal validity of the commission contract

By signing and handing over the goods on consignment, the consignement client confirms that he/she has been informed about the GTC and that he/she has read, understood and accepted them. Upon request, the consignement client will receive a one-time copy of the signed GTCs as a PDF by e-mail. On the other hand, the GTCs can be viewed on the company website www.silo.boutique. As long as they have remained unchanged since the day of the first signature by the consignement client, the GTCs shall also apply to future commission transactions with the same consignement client without further signature.

Data Protection

SILO undertakes to treat private data obtained in the course of business transactions as confidential and not to pass it on to third parties.

Legal Remedies

In the event of disputes, German jurisdiction shall apply.

Shipping charges are at the expense of the buyer.
SILO delivers its goods to all EU countries. Countries outside the EU, but which are part of Europe, can be delivered by arrangement.
We use Deutsche Post/ DHL as our shipping company. You can find out why we use this company in our Sustainability section
Deutsche Post / DHL delivers climate neutral.
In the EU with a small surcharge.
Here are a few guidelines to help you estimate the shipping costs:
Weight incl. insurance Shipping in Germany Shipping in EU (varies by country)
from 2 kg up to 10 kg from 10 kg
5 € 15 € 23 €
12 up to 30 € 35 € 60 €
As the prices are always changing, this information is only indicative. You can take a closer look at https://www.deutschepost.de/de/p/portoberater.html#/.
When shipping an item that you have purchased from SILO, we will inform you in advance about the weight and price of the shipment.


Contributing to more sustainability in the fashion industry is one of our primary corporate goals. This is not only about extending the life cycle and optimising the cost-per-wear of garments, but also about managing our company itself as sustainably as possible.

Equipment and management

For our boutique in the centre of Cologne, we made sure to use vintage furniture as much as possible in the interior. Our price labels are made from cardboard remnants, the business cards are made from recycled cardboard and we only use energy-saving LED lamps. We travel between the SILO offices in Cologne and Paris by climate-neutral train. Meetings are held online as far as possible.


To save additional packaging material, we have raided our own collection of shopping bags from the international luxury industry. If you shop at SILO in Cologne, you won't get a SILO bag, but one from Prada, Dries van Noten or Hermès, for example. We also use existing cardboard material or an environmentally friendly shipping bag for the packaging of the e-shop goods.


We have chosen Deutsche Post/DHL as our shipper because they are the only ones among the providers who not only focus on CO2-compensation but also on CO2-avoidance. Parcels within Germany are shipped climate-neutrally with Deutsche Post/DHL as standard, in the EU there is a small surcharge for climate-neutral shipping. Due to the international orientation of the textile chain, many garments already travel halfway around the world during production. In order not to further burden this environmental balance, we limit shipping to Europe.


When selecting our range, in addition to our aesthetic maxims, we pay attention to valuable and thus durable materials as well as a carefully maintained condition of the pieces. We believe that the higher the quality of a garment, the better it will be cared for and worn for longer.


The people behind fashion and the impact of the fashion industry on the environment are increasingly coming more and more important. Who made this garment? Where and under what conditions was it produced? To what extent does this process impact the planet? These are questions we ask ourselves today, in the face of social injustices, tragedies like the Rana Plaza collapse and environmental balance sheets that show that 850 million tonnes of CO2 emissions are caused by the fashion industry alone each year (source: Carbon Trust). Responsible consumption should therefore look beyond the wardrobe. SILO would like to make a small contribution here. We pass on one euro from the proceeds of every item of clothing sold to a good cause. Our customers can decide whether they would also like to support a social or ecological project with another euro.
Our donations go to these two NGOs

Trillion Tree Campaign

Initiated in 2006 by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), the project aims to plant one trillion trees worldwide to offset climate change. The campaign is based on the Green Belt Movement of Nobel laureate Wangari Maathai and is today implemented mainly by the German NGO Plant for the Planet. By 2021, several billion trees have already been planted and forest restoration projects implemented.

Kalhath Institute

The institute, which is based in Lucknow in northern India, aims to preserve local know-how in embroidery and to train and educate young people. Craftsmanship expertise and a completed education are an important building block to counteract social injustice and exploitation in the fashion industry. The founder of the institute, Italian Maximiliano Modesti: "The sustenance of artisans is important for any craft to thrive and this can happen through training, opportunities and giving them a voice to express." The institute, which won an award for craft in 2018, works for the international luxury industry. SILO is in direct contact with the founder through a friend.

    Make your fashion story circular
    Basically, SILO is about esteem. Respect for a garment, for those who conceived and created it, and for those who chose, wore and loved it. It's about an appreciation for the story that fashion has to tell, and ultimately, an appreciation towards our planet.
    With SILO, we want to preserve the soul of fashion items so that they last for decades to come. With us, every single piece gets the chance to continue its story – stylish and multi-faceted. We want to be more than just a vintage boutique. We want to offer a platform where fashion with sophistication comes together to be presented in the best light and find new owners.
    SILO wants to be a link between a lived and a newly awakened fashion love. And each new lover writes his or her own chapter. We select each individual piece with care and an uncompromising demand for aesthetics, quality and zeitgeist. We believe in a stylish mix of catwalk, classics and contemporary - accessible, exciting, timeless and special.


    At SILO you can shop offline and online: We operate a brick-and-mortar store in the centre of Cologne, but we also offer the possibility to shop via our Instagram account. We look forward to your visit.

    Their passion for fashion and their feeling for changing values have brought Silke Bücker and Barbara Markert together. Both have been working in fashion for decades, know the mechanisms of the industry and appreciate the savoir-faire of valuable clothes. Thanks to their expertise, they know about the transience of some trends and the durability of good style. The two are now bringing this know-how together in a new adventure. SILO is their very personal project of the heart, which aims to give vintage fashion a new, contemporary appreciation.
    For Silke Bücker, fashion has always been more than clothing - cultural asset, attitude, statement, poetry - a value to be preserved. This passion above all has kept her busy with textiles from the most diverse angles for almost 20 years. Be it by interviews, reports or essays for renowned fashion magazines and daily newspapers, by means of creative responsibility for the staging of lookbooks or editorials or as the initiator of the former Cologne boutique called GOLD - Mode zur Zeit. For her, SILO is the logical quintessence of these experiences and pays off on those values that are now cultivated in fashion: Responsibility, quality, longevity, substance and an uncompromising demand for a timeless aesthetic.
    Barbara Markert has been writing about fashion for almost three decades - for German Vogue, Spiegel S magazine and the industry journal The Spin Off, among others. The Parisian by choice has attended far more than 5,000 fashion shows in her lifetime, interviewed numerous designers from Nicolas Ghesquière to Clare Waight-Keller and Raf Simons, and successfully ran the fashion blog called Modepilot for ten years. Very early, she accompanied and assessed the current change in the fashion industry towards sustainability and a change in consumer behaviour on in her editorial work. SILO is the logical consequence for her to step out of the shadow of the reporter and to actively shape the transformation of the industry.


    Fashion becomes more sustainable not only through the buying and selling of vintage clothing, but also through prolonged personal use, the choice of the right materials, the right styling as well as comprehensive consumer education. At SILO, we therefore make available our expertise and know-how in text, styling and fashion knowledge in special consulting and services.
