How To Start Consigning
Step 1 – The Evaluation Process
Send us or bring us a picture of your furniture piece(s): We cannot accept furniture consignments without photos. You can bring in your photos on any media to the store or email them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Occasionally we will make personal visits to evaluate consignments. Please call or e-mail us to arrange for a personal visit.
Provide details: If possible, please provide the original purchase price of your items(s), age, dimensions or other information that may be helpful. Often our customers ask if we know the history of an item and the more you can tell us about your piece the better it will help us tell its unique story.
Acceptance: We will notify you if your item(s) can be accepted on consignment and schedule an appointment for drop off or pick-up. Please understand that our showroom floor changes daily and we have a limited storage space for items that cannot fit onto the floor immediately. The consignment period for any item(s) that we put into our storage facility does not begin until displayed on our showroom floor.
Drop-Offs: We accept drop-offs for home accessories and décor at any time. Pictures are not required for these items. Your items will be tagged for inventory as soon as possible and we will notify you if there are any items that we cannot consign. Please review the description of items we can accept.
Step 2 – Pricing & Terms
Our pricing formula takes into consideration the condition, style, finish, color, original sale price and in some cases, the current retail price. Any information you can provide will be taken into consideration when the item is priced. We are familiar with the current resale market and final pricing is at our discretion. Remember, our goal is to sell your items!
The consignment term is 120 days. Please note that any items unsold after 120 days need to be picked up within 1 week after the consignment term ends. It is the consignor’s responsibility to monitor the consignment term.
Consignors receive 50% of the sale price.
Step 3 – Getting your items to our store
You may deliver your items to our store or contact us for pick-up for your larger items. Our pick-up service is free.
Step 4 – We take it from there!
We will display your furniture to make it as desirable as possible. After all, it is in our interest to sell your merchandise for as much as possible!
We list most of our furniture on our internet e-store and we have a strong presence on Facebook. For highly desirable items we may use nation-wide on-line selling platforms such as E-bay or Etsy.
Step 5 – Payout
Upon sale of your item, we write you a check! Checks are available for pickup on the 10th of the month following the sale of your item(s). For example, if your items sells in January, payment is available after February 10th.
Due to the number of individual consignors we have, we do not make notifications when items sell but you may always come into the store or call us to check on the status of your account.
