U.S. cable network VH1 will premiere House of Consignment, a reality show focusing on a high-end consignment shop, on March 21 at 10 p.m. with two half-hour episodes.

The 10-episode, half-hour series is produced by 44 Blue Productions and stars Corri McFadden (pictured, middle), whose Chicago store eDrop-Off deals in designer clothes and accessories, from Hermes to Chanel. The consignment shop, which began as McFadden’s senior project in fashion design school, has become a multi-million dollar company.

In addition to documenting McFadden and her team in the store, the series will also focus on the house calls they make to clients for closet clean-ups, where the eDrop-Off ladies edit wealthy wardrobes and advise what needs to go and what can sell for big bucks on consignment. Fashion advice is also doled out by McFadden, as she makes high-end fashion brands accessible to the budget-conscious, young customer.

The series will also have an interactive element, as eBay will host a live auction for fans to bid on one item featured in a particular night’s episode.

House of Consignment is executive produced by Stephanie Drachkovitch and co-executive produced by Jennifer Colbert for 44 Blue Productions. Executive producers for VH1 are Kristen Kelly, Jill Holmes and Jeff Olde.
