How do I get my items to you? -We have three easy ways to do that.
Drop In: Anyone may bring us up to 25 items any Tues.-Wed.-Thurs. between the hours of 10:00 - 6:00 for us to evaluate. No appt. is needed. We will price your items before you leave.
By Appt: If our "drop-in" hours don't fit your schedule we may be able to work by appt. on Mon.-Fri. or Sat.
Pickup*: We may pick up your items from your home/business for a predetermined fee. (The fee is deducted from your proceeds after your items sell.) *Restrictions on Pickups Do Apply.

Other Q & A's ?
How much do I get? You receive 60% of the consigned price for items valued $45 or more and 50% for items of lesser value.
How long do you keep my items on consignment? 90 days
Why so short a time? We average selling over 90% of items in 90-day period.
What happens if my item is broken? You're paid, just as if it 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 sold used items for as much at $8,000, antiques for as much as $4,000 but we're intentionally eclectic by design.

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.

  I asked you to price my beat up, old corner cupboard for at least $100.00. You said you thought it would bring $1,200.00. It did!! Wow! Thanks.
