Furniture Consignment Process
Many of our customers who buy furniture from us are curious about consigning furniture and decorative items, yet are not sure how it all works. Below is an explanation of the process. We are here to answer any questions you have.
Furniture Consignment Murfreesboro
We start by requesting photos of your furniture or décor pieces. You can email them directly to our stores using the following addresses:
Murfreesboro Inquiries: [email protected]
You may also come into the Murfreesboro store with pictures on your phone.
The photos you provide will give us a good idea what you have and whether we can use it in the Murfreesboro store. We can’t price items from photos but we can tell you if they have a good chance of selling in the store. Items cannot have any structural issues or damage and must be clean.
Dropping Off Consignment Items
It’s up to you to get your furniture and accessory items to us. We can give you the names of movers that we recommend if needed.
We price items when they arrive. If an item is fairly new and in great shape, we put 1/3 to 1/2 of retail on it. If it’s older, we price it based on our experience. The more information that you can give us, the easier it is to research and price.
Consignment Contract Period
The contract is for 90 days. Consigned items must remain at the store and cannot be picked up by the consignor during that 90 days. The 1st 30 days, items are sold at full price. After 30 days, the price automatically drops down 15%. If it’s still here at 60 days, the price goes to 30% of the original ticketed price. Most items sell at the middle price. Wherever it sells, we split the proceeds 50/50 with the consignor. Checks are issued to the consignor each month and go out automatically around the middle of the month for the previous month’s sales. For example, if your item sold in April, a check would go out in mid-May.
At the end of 90 days, you have 2 weeks to pick up any items. There is not much that is still in the store after 90 days but it is the consignor’s responsibility to pick up anything they want back. Otherwise, items become the property of the store. If you have any other questions, please let us know.
Thanks for your interest!
