Why Consign?

FAQs

How can I check on the status of my consignment?

If you have already consigned with us before, you can easily check on the status of your items by clicking the “CONSIGNOR LOGIN” button in the top right-hand corner of the site. There, use your consignor ID and password to login and see the status of your consignments, how much they sold for, and when checks are sent.

If you do not know your consignor ID or password, contact the store, and we will assist you. We’ll need to confirm your email address and resend you your login information.

How am I paid for sold items?

Consignors will receive their portion of the sale by check. Checks are cut and sent via mail in the first week of each month for any and all sales during the previous month. (e.g. If your item sells in October, your check will be sent in the first week of November.)

I am unable to bring my items in myself. Can you pick them up?

While we do not have the ability to come and pick up items ourselves, we have a partnership with a third party service who will deliver up to three items within 20mi. of our store for $75. More information on this service can be found  here.

Please be aware, however, that if we agree to accept your items by pictures but they are not in good selling condition when we see them in person, you will not be refunded for the delivery and you will be responsible for retrieving your items. Any abandoned items will be donated to save floor space.

What happens at the end of the contract?

Contracts last for 90 days. If any of your items do not sell within those 90 days, we are required to give you ten days to come in and pick them up. If you do not contact us within that ten day span, we reserve the right to donate any abandoned items in order to clear floor space. While we do our best to contact all consignors once their contracts end, it is ultimately up to the consignor to manage his/her items once they have exceeded their contract’s end date.

If you contact the store and wish to extend the contract, we may be able to do so in exchange for a lower agreed price. We reserve the right to determine if this is doable on a per-item basis.

Why do I need to sign a contract?

By signing the contract, you acknowledge that you are the rightful owner of the items to be consigned and that they are free of any liens, security interests, leases or claims of other persons and that you are authorized to consign the items as provided in the agreement. We pledge to do our best to safeguard your consigned items, but in order to keep our insurance rates and thereby our prices at a minimum, we cannot be held responsible for damage or loss to your property. Your homeowners insurance should cover your merchandise while it is in our showroom.

Terms of the contract can be found here.

How is price determined?

We agree to a starting price and bottom price with you before signing the consignment contract. The starting price will be what we think we can sell it for in our market, and the bottom price will be the absolute lowest you would be willing to go down to. We will not sell anything for lower than the agreed bottom price.

The prices we offer will be based off of our prior experience selling similar pieces. However, if the piece is still sold new on the market, we will rarely sell it in our store for more than half of its original price.

Will you take my items on consignment?

We can only accept gently used furniture in good selling condition. Please no pet hair, odors, stains, etc. Reasonably worn pieces can still be taken, but the condition of the piece will affect our selling price.

Please be aware that due to limited space, we are not able to take everything, and there may be a chance that the piece you wish to consign will not be a good fit for our store. As such, we ask that you send photos of the items you wish to consign to contact@whtsnewfrnvm.wpengine.comiture.com, along with any relevant information you may want to provide, such as:

  • Who made the piece, and how old it is
  • What the piece is made of
  • How much it originally cost / How much you’re hoping to make from it
  • If there is any damage or cosmetic wear at all

Once we have received the images, we will respond as quickly as possible to let you know if we can take your items, or ask for more necessary information. This process allows us to better serve you by giving us time to clear space for your pieces, as well as save you a trip if we are unable to accept your pieces.

Will you buy my items from me directly?

At this time, we do not purchase inventory directly from customers. If you wish to sell your items, you may consign them and receive 60% of the final selling price once it sells.

Consignment: What is it, exactly?

When you consign your items with the store, we will attempt to sell your items on your behalf while it stays at our location. If any item sells while under contract, you will receive 60% of the final selling price.
