What happened...how did that piece of furniture that you once loved become the 'elephant in the room'? Maybe you really do love that big, sweet pachyderm, but he simply doesn't fit into your new decor or space. Well, it's time for us to find him a new loving home!
Let's begin the process - email photos to us:
Be sure to include your name and contact information. While additional facts such as manufacturer, age, purchase price, and size are not neccessary at first, they are welcome and may expedite our decision process!
Your photos should show the entire item. Please include images that show condition issues of any kind. We reply to every email we receive after thoughtfully considering the market for each piece - typically we reply within 24 hrs. If applicable, our response will include instructions to call and schedule receipt of your merchandise. You may deliver approved items to us, but we require that you schedule an appointment time. If you require pick-up of your furniture, we offer that service for a fee - please inquire for details.
If you would like to consign smaller home decor or tableware items, you may personally bring them to us for consideration instead of emailing photos. Please call us as appointments are necessary. They allow time for our merchandise analysts to review your items & accept only those which are most appropriate for our market.
We determine pricing for your merchandise only when we can assess/inspect it in person. You will receive documentation. We add a small handling fee onto the ticket price of each item. Consignors are never charged handling, membership or account set-up fees.
Our showroom floor will put your 'elephant' in the spotlight it deserves! The consignment period for each item is 90 days. Merchandise will be reduced by 15% off of the original price after 30 days and 30% off of the original price after 60 days. As the consignor, you receive 50% of the selling price of a sold item. Payment is automatically mailed out to you after the 15th of the following month after your item sold. If an item does not sell after the 90 day consignment period, the consignor has an additional week to call and make arrangements to pick-up their item. After the additional week, all consigned items become the property of Elephant in the Room Design.
