How to Consign

How to Consign

How do I get started?

Bring any pieces that fit in your car by any of our stores Monday-Friday 10am-4pm or Saturday 10am-2pm. Appointments are required for all furniture and when dropping off 25 or more small items and can be made by calling the store. For larger pieces, you can either email a picture to Jenny@southerncomforts.com to be previewed, or stop by the store during consignment hours with a picture (or even the screen on your cell phone camera!)

Do you offer pick-up/delivery?

We will provide a list of preferred movers for your convenience. We will also be glad to provide assistance loading and unloading at any of our stores.

How long do you keep my items?

Southern Comforts typically sells 95% of consigned merchandise within a 120 day consignment period. The consignor is responsible for retrieving any unsold items at the 120 day mark.

How am I paid?

Checks are ready on the 10th of the month following the month in which items sell. They can be picked up at the store where you dropped your items off, anytime within 6 months of the sale of your items.

How are prices set?

We price at fair resale market value. Like you, we want to get the most that we can for your items. You may bring information, such as the original cost and age of items, and we will use our expertise on current market prices to price your items.

Items are sold at the full ticket price for one month, the second month items are reduced by 10%. During the third month, items are reduced by 20%, and during the final month, items are reduced by 30%. Seasonal items (ie. Christmas, Halloween, etc.) may be discounted at the discretion of Southern Comforts.

Is there fine print?

Although we try our best to provide a secure environment for your merchandise, the items remain your property until they sell or 120 days pass, after which all items become the property of Southern Comforts. You must provide any desired insurance coverage for fire, theft, damage or other losses through your homeowner’s or renter’s insurance. Checks are void after 6 months. Acceptance of consigned items is always dependent on condition, ability to resell, and space availability in the store.
