Consignment Information

Here you will find several notes to help you get started with consigning. Remember that the better the condition and cleanliness of the item, the better price you will get in return. Don't forget to clean under, inside, on rims and edges, and all upholstery before bringing in for evaluation. An initial $5 fee is charged for beginning an account with us.

Pricing

Pricing is done by mutual agreement. Most of our consigners rely on us to price their items since we have an excellent idea of what it takes to sell an item. If any of your items have special or unusual value, let us know so that we can factor that into our pricing.
