How to Prepare your Consignments to Make the Most Money

So you've decided to consign your furniture - how exciting! There are typically a few things we (and most consignment stores) ask that you do to ensure that we help you get the most out of the consigning experience. It may seem like a lot of work but we promise it's worth it in the end.

Step 1. Make sure you give us all of the information about the piece that you know of. Even doing a bit of research can go a long way. Some of the really important facts we need to help price it are: 

  • how old the item is 
  • how much you paid for it when you bought it 
  • how long you've had the item (different from how old the item is) 
  • where you purchased the item from 
  • what the item is made of 

Step 2. Clean the item. Knowing what the item is made of can help when cleaning it. For example, you wouldn't clean real wood and glass with the same product. Cleaning your item with appropriate cleaners can really make a difference in how we price it.

Step 3. Fix any imperfections. If you're table leg is loose or there are some scratches on your chair make sure to tighten screws and/or use wood markers to spruce up your item.

After you've made sure your items are in tip top shape its time to bring them in! You've done the work now just sit back and wait for your item to sell (leave that part up to us).
