We refer to our threshold as “house ready”. We require all items be in as close to perfect condition as possible within reason. The better the condition of the items the faster they will sell and the higher the price they will command. All items are subject to final approval pending the condition upon arrival at our premises. Acceptance of your items may be declined if there appears to be a large discrepancy between the described condition and the actual state of the item(s) brought in.
It is your responsibility to deliver your items to the store. If you need help with furniture and large items we have excellent, reliable, and affordable movers we can recommend. If you are able to deliver items yourself, please make sure you bring help to assist you getting your items into the store.
Our CPPAG accredited appraisers have the knowledge and experience to accurately price your items so that they sell as quickly as possible while getting you the best return on your consignment. In order to assist us, we welcome you to provide us with any information or details you have regarding the original purchase or provenance. Please note we are unable to provide prices over the phone. All prices are determined upon final inspection.
When we received your item, the initial price is set for the first 60 days. If your items have not sold after 60 days, the selling price will be reduced by 10%. Following the initial reduction, th items will continue to be reduced by 10% every 30 days until the items have sold.
We are happy to keep your items until they sell! There is no expiration date!
Cheques are mailed out automatically to consignors at the beginning of every month! Once your items have sold you will receive 60% of the selling price. Please remember that if your items have been with us longer than 60 days, the final selling price will be different than the original price.
Consigned items be taken back at any time without penalty. We kindly request 24 hour notice to retrieve your item(s) off the sales floor and prepare the corresponding paper work.
