What's the difference between a vendor and a consigner?
This question may seem tricky but we promise it's not!
A consigner is someone who brings us gently used furniture or home decor. A consigner splits the profit of a given item 50%/50%. The price of a consigner's item goes down 10% every 30 days for the first 90 days. If the 90 days go by and the item does not sell, the consigner comes and picks the item up. After 4 months the item isn't picked up, it becomes 50% off the lowest price. Talk about a steal!
A vendor is someone who makes, repurposes, or improves items in any way. Our vendors typically make gifts, paint furniture, reupholster items, and make furniture from start to finish. Vendors tell us what they need to make from an item they bring us and we add our price onto it. Vendor items are in the store for 90 days. At the end of 90 days their items are moving, they stay in the store until further notice. Vendor items do not reduce in price unless the vendor wants them to be. We always try to price all of our vendor items at reasonable prices.
And there you have it, Consigners V. Vendors, the easy version. Want to be a consigner or vendor? Stop by, give us a call, or send us an email. We love making new friends!
