Consigner Items

Our consignment shop is designed to help you sell items and recycle quality goods to someone who values our secondhand shopping experience. 

Our shop generates money and pays overhead selling things, we lose money when we don't sell. Therefore, we choose consignors based on quality of goods, a willingness to move products at the right price and consignors who are supportive to management. 

Consignors in need of every month appointments for living income should sell their goods online or find another consignment shop.

Consignment is by appointment only- Email or stop in to make an appointment at the beginning of each month during store hours, for the following months desired appointment date. 25 items max per appointment. Appointments book up early in the beginning of each month.

The Appointment Process

1. Email us at in the beginning of the month. These appointments emails are in search of an appointment for the following month. Example: early January email inquiries are looking for February appointment dates.

2. In Subject - label it for "February" Appointment.

3. Our consignment times are Wednesday- Saturday 9am - 12 noon on the half-hour. We do make some afternoon scheduled drop offs only for consignor working schedules, etc. In the email let us know what day or times work best for you.

4. We will let you know if we have available days/times for appointments or let you know that we are fully booked for the month.

We have 650 active consignors looking for 125 appointments each month. Consignors who are looking for appointments every month should be prepared to have some patience please. The math simply does not allow us to satisfy every consignor. 

25 total items are allowed per scheduled appointment.

All items valued less than $5 will not be accepted due to input labor costs. You may donate the items under $5 to the shop if you wish for someone to have them. We will price them accordingly for someone to purchase that is in need.

October-December appointments will be winter related. (November appointments ONLY for Christmas decor)

January-March will be spring related. (February appointments) ONLY for Easter decor)

April-June will be Summer related.

July-September will be fall related.(September appointments ONLY for Halloween decor)

Please plan your appointments accordingly.

All consignor appointments scheduled are at the discretion of management based on the shops inventory needs. 

This is a for- profit business and quality is factored into every decision. Some consignors have needed or desired shop inventory and therefore will be chosen over others. 

Example - we may need inventory that is more Home Goods concentrated, Extra Large or Extra Small Clothing etc. Demand impacts what we are looking for in terms of Supply.
