To Consign Your Furniture Complete These Steps:
Digital Photo Pre-approval: For larger furniture and accessory items that cannot easily be brought to the store, we must receive a digital photo for pre-approval by email. If you do not have a digital photo, you may mail a photo or bring one to our store. Include your name, phone number and a description of the item, including: size; approx. age; and if known, original purchase price; the original manufacturer and where it was purchased. Please make sure you note any flaws or “character” marks! We accept consignment items based on condition, seasonality, demand, and our current inventory.
Delivery to Home Again Store:
You can bring your pre-approved items in during normal business hours or we can arrange for an appointment. Either way, we would like to know when you planned to arrive so that we are prepared to make room for your items. If your items were not fairly represented by picture, you may have to take them back with you.
If you have smaller items, you may send a picture or bring them to our showroom. We will examine items for acceptance. If you have many items and do not care to wait, you may drop them off and come back for final approval. Weekend consignments are by appointment only. Weekday does not require an appointment. Please allow plenty of time because buyers have first priority in the showroom.
Upon acceptance of items, Gillette Furniture Consignment determines the pricing with consideration given to condition, quality, brand, age, original purchase price, style, and most importantly buyer demand. The true value is set by demand. Priced too high…items do not sell and priced too low it is not fair to the seller/consignor or our business. We price and display your items to sell quickly for maximum profit for both of us.
Gillette Furniture Consignment (Consignee) will enter into an agreement with the seller (Consignor). Once the agreement is signed, it will mark the beginning of the consignment period and spell out the terms continued below. It will also give you the date your consignment ends. It is a simple contract that you can sign in our store.
Consignment Period and Markdowns:
The consignment period is 90 days from the date of the consignment agreement. After 30 days, if the item is not sold, Gillette Furniture Consignment reserves the right to mark down your items 10-15% off the original price. Priced right, most items will sell in 30 to 45 days. With these markdown policies, you have a good idea of what your items are going to sell for. We respect that they are your possessions until sold. We reserve the right to put an item on sale at any point.
Tracking your Treasures:
Your items will be entered into our inventory and you will be given a customer number. Each item has its own item number and tag for accurate tracking on our consignment software.
Your will receive 50% of the final sales proceeds.
