PICK-UP/DELIVERY: you will need to arrange your own delivery or pick-up. Please contact us if you need any recommended movers. We advise that you bring help if you are not using movers as we may not have anyone available to assist you and especially if the pieces are large and/or heavy.

PRICING OF YOUR ITEMS: we determine the price by researching and based on demand, brand and condition. Like you, we want to get the most we can for your treasures. A guideline is 30% to 50% of 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. 

PRICE REDUCTIONS & COUPONS: for the first 30 days your item remains at full price. between days 31 to 60 it is reduced by 10%, days 61 to 90 reduced by 20%, days 91 to 100 reduced by 30%. To help sell your items quickly, at times we have promotions or discount coupons. This is usually 10% and no more than 25% off current selling prices.

SEASONAL CONSIGNMENT: We will advertise in our newsletter, website and other media when we are ready to accept these. 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 with out 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 item fees have been deducted. Checks are void after 6 months.

ITEM FEE: this is also known as a buyers 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.
