PRICE: ONE TIME €10,-
To be able to borrow items you need a membership. We register you in our system and you get your own personal LENA library card.
We gave all items in our collection points, based on uniqueness, quality and style. You can use the points fitting your subscription to ‘shop’ in our library.
Everybody has a little accident every now and then when it comes to their clothing. Like a stain, tear or little hole. We think it’s very important for you to feel comfortable in our clothing, so we completely understand that these things happen. Therefore you get 3 accidents from us as a present. From the 4th time onwards we charge a fee of 25% of the sales price to compensate.
Lost something? Then you need to pay the full price.
We have three different subscriptions you can choose from, all with a different amount of points.
If you for example take the subscription ‘low’ of 100 points, you can make any combination as long as you stay within these 100 points. Eg. 25 + 25 + 50 = 100, of 50 + 50 = 100. The fun this is that you can always have the value of 100 points at home, which means you can come and swap them whenever you like.
LENA works with automatic payment which will be withdrawn from your account on a monthly basis.
PERIOD OF NOTICE
Subscriptions are valid for a period of 3 months. We automatically prolongue this for you after this period. From then on you can cancel your subscription monthly. You have 30 days before the end of the period to give us notice if you want to cancel your subscription. Your subscription cannot be ended prematurely.
FREE LIBRARY BAG
Are you getting your first subscription? Then you get your very own LENA library bag. You can use it to carry your borrowed items so we use less plastic bags!
Sometimes you just know a garment is meant for you. But unfortunately it happens too often that love instantly disappears when you come home and your purchases end up in the back of our closet. That is why we started with the ‘try-before-you-buy’ system. Which means you can test items before you actually buy them.
If you want to buy something after you’ve borrowed it for 1 month we give you 10% discount. After 2 months or longer you get a discount of 20%, unless otherwise indicated.
Used up all your points? You can easily get some extra points with the stamp card. For subscribers we have a special price of €24,95 for 500 points, 50% discount on the normal price! The same conditions apply as for the stamp card as described below.
Do you have items at home that would fit perfectly in our collection? You can swap the item you bring in for something else from our collection. You get a ‘swap-credit’ you can use to pick something from the collection in store.. We base the amount of the ‘swap-credit’ on 60% of the sales price we give to your item. A few items from the collection you can’t swap, because we have collaborations and agreements with brands and designers (we will mark these items with a no swap sticker on the label). It is not possible to take more items than you brought in, because we don’t want to see our collection shrink in volume.
PRICE: € 49,95, 500 points
Don’t prefer a subscription? Than you can opt for a stamp card which has 20 x 25 points. You have a period of 5 days to borrow something, so make sure to bring it back in time. The stamp card is valid for a year counting from the day of purchase, and is registered in your name.
Using a stamp card or did your subscription end? Always make sure to hand in your borrowed items in time. Every day you are too late we charge a fee of €2,- per item.
YOUR CLOTHING AT LENA
We have a temporary pause, because of your enthousiasm. We can’t keep it up at this moment. But not to worry, we will let you know asap when it’s time hit to the start button again!
Do you have items at home that would fit perfectly in our collection? Check this checklist to make sure:
clean & tidy (freshly washed and ironed)
no staines and damages
ladies only (no underwear)
no fast fashion
We put a lot of trouble in making sure our collection consists of the best quality unique pieces for you. So we are picky. We make a selection based on style, quality and size.
What do you get in return?
The items you bring in, we take in consignment, and you get 40% (non-subscribers) 50% (subscribers) of the sales price when it get’s sold. In the meantime our members can also borrow your item, so there may occur user traces.
