Why Consign?

Do you have quality home furnishings that you're ready to move along? 

There are several reasons you may choose consignment as your best option for doing so:

  • You inherited an estate and don't want to have a full-on estate sale but rather sell a few quality items
  • You're moving or downsizing and have quality furniture or home goods you don't want to just donate
  • You want to avoid the hassles of garage sales or online selling to strangers
  • You're ready to redecorate. The extra cash would be great to help fund your new or new-to-you home design goals.

About Consigning With Furnish Traders

Each consignor is asked to sign a 120-day consignment contract. The general terms are fifty percent (50%) of the sale price goes to the consignor. 

Our staff determines the retail price on all consigned merchandise. In submitting our consignment intake form with your item(s), you are able to provide any details you believe would help in pricing.  It is in everyone's best interest for items to be priced at a fair market value that would allow items to realistically sell within the first 30 days of the consignment period.

Our price incentive guidelines for each 30-day interval of the consignment period are as follows:

  • First 30 days:   Listed at full (initial) price
  • Days 31 - 60:    Listed at 90% of initial price
  • Days 61 - 90:    Listed at 85% of initial price
  • Days 91 - 120:   Listed at 75% of initial price

Consignors have seven (7) calendar days from the last day of the 120-day consignment period to pick up any unsold items.  

Consignors are able to track the status of their consignments online 24/7 by logging in to their consignor account online HERE.

Furnish Traders accepts consignments on Tuesdays & Thursdays during business hours. If those days do not work for your schedule, please contact us to make an appointment.  Large furniture must be pre-approved by us prior to arrival. Please email a photo of furniture items for review to info@furnishtraders.com.

Please bring along help to unload or load your items.
