Maximize Your Consignment

Maximize Your Consignment

Our goal is to have a showroom full of upscale, near-mint condition items that will draw buyers back time and again. We also want you to get the most money out of your consignment. Please take the time to wipe down all items inside and out. Clean any cobwebs from underneath your furniture. Vacuum all upholstered pieces, especially under the seat cushions. Tighten all loose screws.

Inspect each item carefully and ask yourself if you would buy this item? If not, chances are neither will anyone else. Buyers want quality items that are clean and are appealing to the eye.
