House of Consignment



Smart businesswoman hawks luxury goods; some language.

What parents need to know

Positive messages

While House of Consignment is very consumer driven, owner/founder of eDrop-Off Corri McFadden sometimes mentions that material things don't always make people happy. The business itself is presented in a positive manner, and while there's some interpersonal drama, it doesn't take over the show.

Positive role models

McFadden is a smart, driven woman who proves that dreams can be achieved through hard work. She's represented as strong and tough, but not mean spirited or overly harsh.


Some arguments.


Some clothes showcase men's and women's bodies in a suggestive manner. Occasional sexually tinged jokes.


Lots of bleeped swearing -- "s--t" and "f--k" -- while words like "bitch" and "piss" are audible.


While the fashions showcased are secondhand, they're still brand-name luxury and designer goods like Versace and Manolo Blahnik. Labels get lots of airtime, and designers like Christian Siriano occasionally appear on the show.

Drinking, drugs, & smoking

Occasional celebratory or social drinking, including champagne and shots.

Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that House of Consignment showcases name-brand luxury items, from Louis Vuitton to Versace, and labels get lots of airtime. Expect plenty of swearing, both fully bleeped ("f--k" and "s--t") and audible ("bitch"). On the positive side, the show focuses on a smart, strong woman who's determined to make her business work.

What's the story?

In reality show HOUSE OF CONSIGNMENT, Corri McFadden, owner and founder of luxury eBay consignment shop eDrop-Off, works to grow her successful Chicago-based business while juggling a growing number of employees and clients.

Is it any good?


McFadden is very fun to watch. She's the rare unicorn of the reality TV world: smart, strong, beautiful, driven -- and not represented as mean or shrewish. VH1 does her a service by letting her business savvy and intelligence shine through, without obviously trying to manipulate her actions or words.

Along the way, a team of employees share the limelight with McFadden and create fun reality TV moments -- think fussy interns forced to pick up after tiny dogs on walks -- that never take away from the show's main message and theme. This is one of the more enjoyable, light-hearted reality shows out there, and fashion-savvy teens will get a kick out of it and see a fairly strong female role model in the process.

Families can talk about...

  • Families can talk about luxury goods. Why do people want to buy them? Do you think having things with fancy labels makes people feel better about themselves? Does this show make you desire any of the clothes you see here?

  • How is Corri McFadden represented on House of Consignment? How realistic is the show? Do you think Corri and her staff really act this way, or are they playing up for the camera? What does Corri stand to gain or lose from appearing on this show?
