Why does Consignment 1st make sense over alternative selling methods?

  • Does the customer have money on the day of your sale?
  • Can he/she locate the address if he shows at all?
  • How valuable is your time?
  • Safety/Liability
  • Have they sold "millions" of items like Consignment 1st has?
  • Will weather be a factor?
  • Do you really enjoy arguing/haggling?
  • How long have they been in business?

How long do you keep my items on consignment?

90 days.

We average selling over 90% of items in 90-day period.

What happens if my item is broken?

You're paid just as if the item sold. We self-insure our items.

What happens to any unsold items after 90 days?

Any item valued at $10.00 or more may be picked up between the 91st-97th day of your contract. Items of lesser value may be donated to a local charity. You may have a receipt if you wish. Occasionally your item may be re-consigned for another period.

Do you have a market for "my type of items"?

Probably yes. We've sold used items for as much as $10,000, antiques for as much as $4,000 but we're intentionally eclectic by design. However, we rarely accept used sofas, rugs, and "old" antique furniture.

Helpful Hints

  • Items need to be clean/polished--ready to sell
  • E-mail photos for an evaluation prior to bringing large pieces.
  • Give any information good or bad that might influence pricing. i.e.: "This crystal is Waterford" or "although barely noticeable, the leg has been repaired."
  • Remember...we're on the same team
