Furniture consignment isn't for every furniture piece (say your leftover college furniture or a severely damaged item). But if you have a piece of vintage or gently used furniture you no longer want, have inherited a piece that isn't your style, or are sick of paying the fees on a storage container full of furniture you haven't used in awhile, you might want to enlist the help of a consignment shop over trying to sell it yourself. A few reasons why consigning could be a good idea for you:
Reach a larger audience of potential buyers willing to pay:
If you've got a valuable piece of furniture going through a consignment shop means you'll reach buyers looking for well-designed and made furniture — and willing to pay for it.
You'll deal with the consignment shop — not field calls and emails from interested buyers.
No strangers coming to your home: Do you want to meet a stranger at your home or storage unit and haggle over a price? Of course not.
Free up space for your new decorating project: If you've filled up your home but want a new look or have inherited a furniture piece that isn't your style, consigning your gently-used but fabulous furniture could get you more money to enjoy new designs.
