A little about our consignment ...
We offer "easy consignment" opportunities ranging from single to unlimited items, and booth rental for those who want to set up their own shop for a lower consignment rate. All of our vendors and consignors have access to their own online accounts where they can check and add inventory, print out price tags, and see their payout. This is nice for knowing what is going on with your items when you are not in the store.
Item types acceptable: Quality Artisan Goods & Antiques... handmade, repurposed, vintage or antique items for household use and decor.
Items must be clean, in good condition, and acceptable to store person who does the screening.
Pricing and staging: Pricing, discounting, staging and advertising will be done as outlined in the consignment options.
Payments: Payments are available the second Saturday of the month following the month of a sale. Store credit is available, and can be used toward booth payment and/or store purchases. Payment information (amount, history, etc.) will be available in your personal online account.
Item Term length and removal: Items not selling after 5 months will be removed from the store, taken out of inventory and placed in the “back room”. A note will also be added to their account info page stating that there are discontinued items waiting for pick up. It is the consignor’s responsibility to check this area regularly. Any items left longer than 4 weeks in the “back room” will be ownership of the store and a disposal fee may be charged to the consignor.
