What is consignment?
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!
What are your consignment terms?
We sell your fine furnishings on consignment. You receive 50% of the sale price.
How do I consign my furniture with One Amazing Find?
All FURNITURE 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.
Is there a limit to the amount of consignments I can bring in at a time?
Yes, limit to two -2- boxes of decor per consignor, per consignment day. Lamps - no more than 2 without appointment. Artwork - no more than 2 per day, per consignor - all artwork must be equipped with the appropriate hardware to hang on our walls. Furniture items are all pre-approved before arrival at our store.
How do I prepare my items?
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 may 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.
Do I need an appointment to consign items?
We always suggest giving us a call before you bring your decor items here for consignment. All decor items (accessories, lights, pictures, dishes, small items, etc. that you wish to consign must be dropped off, during a consignment day, in a box or container labelled with your FIRST and LAST NAME along with a detailed itemized list.
Consignment Hours: Monday - Thursday: 10 - 4, Saturday 11 - 3
When you bring in items for consignment at One Amazing Find you have the option to wait while one of our staff members quickly goes through your boxes and returns any items to you that we feel we will not be able to sell. If you are unable to wait while we go through your consignment you may be asked to pick up any unwanted consignments within 7 days of notification or your items will be donated to a local charity.
Do you buy items outright?
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.
Who sets the price?
The selling price of consigned items will be established by One Amazing Find staff. 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 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.
Can I take back my item(s) if I change my mind?
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.
How long is the consignment period?
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.
How will I know when my item sold?
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.
What happens when my item(s) sell?
Checks are always ready to be picked up a the stores 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.
What if my items do not sell?
We have many clients who consign with us therefore it is up to the consignor to track dates and pick up unsold items following the contract period.

We would also like to point out, subject to your own view of course, for which we shall never judge you, because of course then we too might be judged and we all know where that could lead... wait... where were we? Oh yes, we would like to point out that our collective favorite creature on the planet is the Noble Platypus. Humans, especially the adorable little ones are amongst our favorites, yes, but we think that goes without saying, and therefore should not be at the top of our list. Oh, and puppies, kittens, and just about anything small and furry... except spiders... not cute. Our point, right, is the Platypus, a creature that was, arguably, made neither by evolution nor devine design, but rather, we believe, by committee. Yep, that's our favorite one... for now... :-)
