Items to Sell – And Not to Sell – At a Consignment Shop
One easy way to make a little extra money is to sell your gently used items through a consignment store. Selling through consignment is much safer than selling through classified ads or through websites like Craigslist. With consignment you do not need to provide your email address and strangers never need to visit to your home. Additionally, the consignment shop handles all of the marketing for you.
Before you begin gathering your items to take to your local consignment shop, it’s important to know what items sell, and which ones do not.
Such as sofas, sectionals, sleeper sofas and comfortable chairs
Such as leather sofas and chairs
Such as wooden dressers and bookshelves
Dining tables and chairs, especially contemporary ones, typically sell very well
Mid-century modern furniture
Inexpensive, un-framed modern art
Such as large modern pieces on canvas
Such as newer lamp styles with shades in good condition
Including vintage pieces and garden tables
The more interesting, the better
~Items that do not sell well
If you want to guarantee that your items sell quickly, and for top dollar they must be cleaned well before you take them to a consignment shop. This step alone can boost an item’s price by as much as 25%. It’s also important to repair any broken hardware and touch up any scratches or dings. In order for the shop to set a fair price for your items you will want to gather as much information about them as you can. Helpful information includes when it was made and whether it is an original piece or a replica.
