For those interested in consigning but unsure of how to begin, the following might help you get a few things together and get started. As the consignor, you need to prepare your items for consignment so that you get the most out of yur experience. The same preparation should be taken if you are consigning a bookshelf or a lamp, a knickknack or a dining room set.
First-timers should bring no more than 10 items to keep the inital meeting short. The person accepting your consignment will look over each piece for "sale-ability". Don't go in expecting all your items to be accepted for consignment. The store's personnel will know what has "sale-ability" in their shop and what does not.
Cleanliness of your items is a MUST. Preparing your items by spot cleaning can make a big difference. Jewellery, knickknacks, dishes, furniture and miscellaneous items should be clean and dust free. The price you will recieve for your items depends on the shape they are in at first glance, so, spruce them up before you consign.
- If the items needs to be cleaned, there will be a small service charge.
Consignment Terms. We will display your items for 90 days. The selling price will be reduced by 20% after 60 days. You receive 60% of the selling price. Stop in any time for monies owed to you. If you would like to retrieve any unsold items, please do so by the 90th day. Call us ahead of time and we'll have them ready for you. If you do not wish to pick up the remaining unsold items, they become property of Another Man's Treasure.
That's all there is to it. It's that easy. T
