The Consignment Process

Step 1  The Evaluation Process - Before we get started we need to be sure that your merchandise is saleable.

  • Condition: To be saleable in our store, the merchandise must be in good to mint condition. Evaluating your items on the ACR scale of 1-10 with 10 being the best, we look for pieces that are in between a 5 and a 10.

Step 2  Pricing - Our pricing formula consists of: condition, style, age, uniqueness, scarcity, finish, color, original sale price and in some cases what the piece could be purchased for either new or used in the current market.  Any information and historical information that you have on the piece is also helpful. We also factor in our experience with how other similar pieces have sold in the past.

Step 3  Delivery Getting the merchandise to our store: If it is possible for you to deliver your merchandise to our store, we are able to assist you during any of our normal business hours. For larger items, it is best to call ahead to be sure that we have some strong backs on-site to give you hand. We also offer an affordable and professional pick-up service. Rates vary based on location.

Step 4  We take it from here! We polish and touch up your furniture and other items to make them as desirable as possible. After all, it is in our interest to sell your merchandise for as much as possible! Major repairs or excessive cleaning does result in additional fees. The staff will discuss these situations with you where it is necessary. From there, we professionally merchandise your furniture and other items, and our professional sales staff will work hard to sell them!.

Step 5  Get Paid! Upon the sale of your goods, we will write you a check or credit your account within 10 days of sale if sold within our store.  For Internet sales, you will receive your check within 30 days of sale.
