How to Consign Furniture
All items that appear in our showroom or online have been checked for quality, style, and condition to ensure that we continue to offer the best service for our customers.
Our process for curating the perfect items for our shop starts by emailing your photos of your items to firstname.lastname@example.org. They do not need to be professional quality, but we do need to be able to see the items, so surfaces need to be cleared.
We also need to know if there is smoking or a pet in our home? (we do not consign furniture items from homes with smoking). What is the time frame for consigning your items? i.e. closing date on home sale, start of renovations, etc…
If you can include any relevant information, such as brand, condition, purchase date and price that can be helpful for evaluating your piece. Please don’t forget to include a phone number that our viewer may reach you at.
Both in-home and in-store viewings are available depending on the pieces you are looking to consign. Appointments must be made for both. Please DO NOT bring the item to the store without an appointment.
Who Sets The Prices
Our team has the knowledge and training 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.
Consignment Split and Payment
Our consignment split is 60/40 (60 to the consignor and 40 to the store) on the net selling price for all other items. Consignors are paid on the 15th day of the proceeding month that the item is sold. Payments under $25.00 are not issued; they will be added to your payment when another item sells from your account.Consignor access and tagging fess are applied monthly or when items are sold. Credit card processing fees will be charged back to the consignor should your item be purchased by credit card.
Consignor Early Pick Up
Should a consignor wish to pick up any item prior to the termination of the contract a storage fee of 12% of the net selling price of the item will be charged and the fee must be paid prior to pick up.
How Long Do You Keep My Pieces?
Your items are consigned for 90-day period with an additional 30 day extension on select pieces. Most of our inventory sells faster than that, but some particular pieces require longer exposure in our showroom, as styles and demand changes regularly. Don’t fret if your items don’t sell immediately. We signed an agreement with you because we believe that someone else will enjoy having them. We will continue to promote your items at a lower price.
How Are My Pieces Discounted Over Time?
When we received your item, the initial price is set for the first 30 days. If your items have not sold after 30 days, the selling price will be reduced by 10%. Following the initial reduction, the items will continue to be reduced by 10% every 30 days; if the item doesn’t sell after 90 days an additional 30 day extension may be granted or you may come and pick it up. Any items not picked up after 7 days will be the property of Juniper & Oak and we will ensure it is given another use at no cost to you.
