If you would like to sell some of your home furniture or furnishings, instead of listing them online, taking out an ad, or selling at a garage sale, bring them to us and consign. We take your items into our store, display them on our showroom floor, list them on OUR website, and we sell them for you. We share the proceeds, making us partners of sorts. And even with sharing proceeds, you will likely receive greater reward letting us sell your items, often much greater, than if you tried to sell them yourself!
We sell your fine furnishings on consignment. You receive 50% of the sale price.
All items MUST be approved prior to delivery to the store. You can submit a consignment request by simply sending us a photo of your furniture items Click here for more information about submitting a request. We will evaluate whether it is something we think we can sell and respond to you via email. If you do not have access to email or a digital camera, drop by our stores with a traditional photo or photos on your phone or tablet.
As you choose items to consign, ask yourself, 'Would I buy it in its current condition?'. If not, take a minute to dust, polish, clean or vacuum your item. We will not accept items that are not adequately prepared for sale. All items for consignment must be clean and in prime condition: i.e. dirt, dust, and smoke free, not in need of any repair, and in good working order. In many cases we may move your items straight to the floor when delivered.
Absolutely, yes - consignment delivery to the store is by appointment only. Once your items are approved, please verify with us when you can deliver them so we can approve the day or time. We can accept items any day of the week during normal business hours, but often reject times that may conflict with another large delivery or pickup, in-store workshops, or special events that my interfere with our ability to receive your items. We strive to be respectful of everyone's time, thus the need for delivery approvals.
For insurance reasons, no. If you cannot carry items into the store on your own, please make sure you bring adequate help. Further, if items need to be re-assembled, this is the responsibility of the consignor to ensure that items are prepared for immediate merchandising and sale. We have reserved spaces behind our store for pickup and delivery and double doors to make for easy access. Once your items are in the store, we are responsible for moving them around the store and merchandising.
Any item that is suitable for sale as-is will be accepted ONLY on consignment. We DO purchase some items outright, but only those pieces that we will be refining, refinishing, painting, hardware swap, etc. These pieces must be approved before you bring them to us.
The selling price of consigned items will be established by One Amazing Find staff, and we will discuss with you in advance of delivering your consignment items to make sure you haven't any concerns. In determining the selling price of items, One Amazing Find, will consider such factors as brand, age, condition, and market demand. As a general guideline, consignment pricing is approximately one third of original pricing, although it could be higher or lower based on condition, style, age, marketability etc. We also employ a paid service that provides us access to more than 300 million past transactions so that we can know what your items or similar items actually sold for, NOT what people online may have as current asking prices. We are not an antique shop and do not make any claims to knowing the market value of your piece. We price our items on what we think our buyers will pay. Please visit our website to see how similar items have been priced.
Consigned items remain your property until sold. If you wish to reclaim any unsold items before the sale period ends, you may do so, but there will be a holdback charge of 10% of the starting price.
We will display your items for a maximum of 120 days - approximately 4 months. After 30 days, item sale prices are reduced by 15% from original price. After 60 days, item sale prices are reduced by 30% from original price. And after 90 days, item sale prices are reduced by 45%. One Amazing Find has the right to offer any special pricing or deals at any time the items are on the floor for sale. It can take anywhere from 1-7 days from the time you drop off your consignments to the time they are on our floor and listed in our Web site.
Once you become a consignor with One Amazing Find you will be provided instructions on how to access your online consignor account. Here you can check your current and previously sold inventory as well as your settlement and check history. One Amazing Find will NOT call or email you when your furniture sells. You must monitor your account, or contact the store directly, to see if your furniture has sold.
Checks are always ready to be picked up a the store on or after the 15th of the month following the month the item is sold. Unclaimed, lost, or stale-dated checks will not be re-issued. We do not call you to tell you your check is ready. If you request checks to be mailed we ask that you supply stamped and addressed envelopes. Checks will not be re-issued if lost in the mail or stale-dated.
We have many consignors, hundreds in fact, making it impossible for us to manually call and notify when items are expired on our floor. Therefore, it is up to the consignor to track dates and pick up unsold items following the contract period. This information is all readily available 24-7 in real time through your consignor login on our Web Site. If you do not pick up your items by day 130, they become the property of One Amazing Find and will be disposed of, sold at a reduced amount, or donated to a local charity. One Amazing Find will not issue charitable receipts as we are not a charity. If YOU would like to donate unsold items to a charity yourself, contact us to make arrangements for the charity of your choice to pick up.
