Our customers would give a resounding “Thumbs Up” to that question. Sometimes it may not work out financially for you. Some consignors simply want their items to go away and don’t care if they realize a profit from their consignment transaction….they just want the stuff gone!
Many consignors want to realize more money from their consignments than what they pay to consign. The costs to consign would be the money spent to have the furniture delivered from their house to our store, plus charges for steam cleaning, touch-up repairs, etc. It is very difficult for us to estimate the selling price because a photo may not show a blemish or damage which can significantly reduce the selling price, and the item may not sell until the last marked down price.
We won’t accept an item for consignment if we think it isn’t in the best interest of our consignor, or we may call prior to accepting the item and discuss it with you. Then it is your decision. The consignment transaction should benefit both parties or it isn’t a good transaction….we only want good transactions for both parties.
