A guideline is 30% to 70% lower than the original price but can vary. So if your are expecting more than 50% of the original price or are finding it hard to let go, we advise you not to consign those pieces until you are absolutely ready to. Once priced we will email you a list of your items with prices. We are a price and go business, so items may have sold before you receive your email which we do not compensate for the difference between price sold and your expectations. If you do not receive this email within 48 hours, please call the store.

Please note that seasonal items may reduce a period before the season, usually up to 50% off the current selling price and the day after the season, usually up to 75% off the current selling price. If you do not wish for your items to reduce before the season, you may retrieve them before they discount without a fee.

PAYMENT: a check will be ready for pick up on the 10th of each month for items sold the prior month provided your account credit has reached the minimum of $25. Amounts are 50% of what your items sold for after the buyers fee has been deducted. Checks are void after 6 months. Account credit maybe used for purchases. There is a $5 check reissue fee.

ITEM FEE: This is paid by the purchaser. The fee is between 99c and $9.99 depending on the original price. This does not reduce when the original price reduces. Example: price tag which has $9.99 the fee is 99c and you will see on your emailed price list $9, for $39.99 the fee is $3.99 on your price list $36, $299.99 the fee is $9.99 on your price list $290.

Thank you for consigning with us! Consigning your no longer needed items is a great way to make some extra cash and help our environment. We select items which we are confident will sell, and if we say no thank you, please do not take it personally.

PLEASE READ THROUGH THIS CONTRACT BEFORE SIGNING. A reminder will be attached with your priced inventory emails.

INVENTORY SELECTION - furniture and large pieces - please email photos to and include close ups of any marks, dents and wear. Please wait for a reply. Accessories (limit 15 pieces) and small furniture - drive up to the curb and we will either come out and select items or during busy periods ask that you use one of our carts to load. Drop off hours are between 11.30am and 4.30pm.

CONDITION - items must be clean and free of odors, and furniture structurally sound with no missing parts to be considered. Please note that we reserve the right to refuse items at the door which do not meet our standards or price them accordingly. For items accepted in store and we later find that they have a flaw or damage, we will price accordingly or donate them.

ACCEPTED ITEMS via email - you will need to make your own arrangements to bring your items to us and call the store to schedule an appointment. Please be prepared for you or movers to place items in a designated space and to reassemble anything arriving disassembled. We are unable to guarantee that we will have help to unload.

PRICING - We want to get as much as you do. WE DETERMINE THE PRICES & ARE UNABLE TO QUOTE PRICES BEFORE BEING ABLE TO INSPECT ITEMS PHYSICALLY. We are a price and go operation so your items may sell before you receive your priced inventory email and are unable to compensate for the difference between what the item sold for and your price expectation if this happens. The guideline for our pricing is 30% to 75% lower than the original price or of a similar item but may vary depending on condition, age, brand name, demand and if current items are on sale at other establishments. Prices will drop by 10% every 30 days of the consignment cycle. If you have any price expectations, please let us know and we will try to work with you, but if we feel we cannot meet it, we will ask you to take the item back with you. From experience, when a consignor has requested we increase the price we have set, their item did not sell.

CONSIGNMENT PERIOD - is 100 days. There is a pick up period between day 91 and day 100 for you to retrieve your items you wish to take back. Please bring appropriate packaging. You will need to walk the store to identify your items. There is a 20% fee of the original price for items retrieved early. Items become expired on day 101 and may be donated (We do not compensate for this. You may request a donation form). If an expired item is sold at a reduced price, you will receive 10% of what it sold for minus the buyers fee.

SEASONAL ITEMS - are reduced before and after the season by up to 75% and donated 7 days after the season. You may request a donation form. We do not compensate for items donated. You may retrieve your seasonal items a week before the season fee free.

COMMISSION - consignors receive 50% of what the item sold for minus the buyers fee. The buyers fee remains the same if sold at a reduced price. Example - if an item is priced at $19.99 (the price on your inventory list will be $18.99) the buyers fee is $1 and 50% is $9.49. The $ amount for the buyers fee depends on our original price with a cap of $9.99.
