What is Consignment Solutions?
We are here to assist sellers to sell their home furnishings and accessories in “like-new” condition.

Whether you want to sell a single piece or a whole room or buy a single piece or a whole room, Consignment Solutions has the solution for you! Once your item sells, you will receive 50% of the final selling price.
How long is the consignment period?
Consignment Solutions will display your merchandise for up to 120 days. Once the consignment period is over, you will be contacted to collect any unsold merchandise. Should you choose not to pick up your merchandise within 10 days of notification; it will become the property of Consignment Solutions and will be marked down further, donated to charity or disposed of at the discretion of Consignment Solutions management.
How are items priced?
Like you, we want your item to sell for the highest price. We price items at fair resale market value. Often original price, age, desirability and condition help us determine a fair price. We welcome your input but reserve the right to set the final selling price.
How do I consign my home furnishings?
Large items must be previewed prior to arrival in our store through photographs which you can bring in or email. Once accepted you will have seven days to bring items in or arrange for pick up. To consign small items, please call to set up an appointment to bring them into the store. We can pick larger items up for a pick-up/delivery fee. See a Consignment Solutions associate for details and pricing.
