Q: Why should I consign with Consigners Collection?
We will professionally price and stage your furniture and home accessories to ensure you receive payment for your items as quickly as possible. Our experienced staff carefully selects desirable, high quality items for our store. This creates high foot traffic, quick turnover and consistent repeat customers making it easy for your items to see a profit.
Q: What if my item doesn't sell?
As we have years of experience in determining consignable items, it is unusual that your consignment will not sell. In the rare cases when consignments remain on our showroom floor for over 120 days, you can decide to come and collect your items within 5 days, or the item will become the property of Consigners Collection.
Items that become the property of the store may be discounted and sold with 50% of the proceeds going to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. They also may be painted and sold at full price or donated to Pawsabilities. If the store decides to paint your unsold item, Consigners Collection will retain the proceeds to cover cost of supplies and labor.
Q: Will you notify me if my item sells?
Unfortunately, as we have a full showroom we are unable to notify consigners if their item has sold or not. It is the sole responsibility of the consigner to check back on their items and collect their earnings.
Q: How do you establish pricing?
We set our pricing so that you get a check as quickly as possible but not so high that the items don’t sell. We promise to carefully research, catalogue, determine fair market value of your item, and price tag. Additionally, your item will be professionally arranged on our showroom floor to maximize interest.
Q: What items will you not accept?
As we maintain a high standard of quality for our buyers, we cannot accept items that are stained, faded, ripped, broken or in need of refinishing. Nor can we accept clothing, jewelry, drapery, electronic items, bedding or mattresses.
Q: Do you offer layaway?
Currently, we do not offer layaway. However, we are happy to put pieces on a 24 hour hold for you.
Q: Will you load purchased items into our vehicle?
We do not always have the manpower to help load larger pieces. Please come prepared when heavy lifting is involved.
Q: Do you deliver?
We do offer delivery on select pieces based on availability and moving difficulty. Please consult with a team member to see if the item you would like to purchase applies. If we are not able to deliver your piece, we are happy to recommend a professional local mover to assist you.
