Consignment Information


We accept a wide selection of home furnishing and accessories on consignment. You will find a PDF copy of our consignment agreement below. Please be sure to read the contract, as it explains how and when payments are dispersed!

  • Items that sell for more than $50 return 60% to the consignor, while items that sell for $50 or less are divided equally, 50% to the consignor, 50% to Room Service.
  • Consigned items are marked down 10% each 30 days, and are kept on the sales floor for up to 4 months.
  • At the 4 month mark, items are marked to 50% off, and are considered eligible for donation. At this time the consignor may pick up any unsold merchandise, or Room Service will donate such merchandise on behalf of the consignor. It is the responsibility of the consignor to keep up with their items. We are happy to email an inventory list to consignors after entering the items in our computer system. The inventory list will show the pick-up date for each item.
  • Please note: we will be having Habitat donation pickups every couple of weeks, so consignors who do not want their items donated should pick them up at the 4 month mark to avoid the possibility of their items being donated.


If you are interested in consigning furniture, we ask that you email pictures of the item(s) to roomservicelex@gmail.com so that we can discuss salability, possible asking price, and schedule an appointment to bring the item(s) in. Because of the volume of inquiries, we ask that you call us to follow up if you do not receive a response within a few days. 

Due to space limitations, we MUST have incoming furniture on our schedule. We are typically scheduling 1-2 weeks in advance, depending on the number/type of item(s) you have.  We regret that we are usually unable to accept large pieces that are not scheduled. If you are unable to bring in larger items yourself, we are happy to recommend a delivery service, but there is a charge for their services. We are not able to help with unloading furniture.

ALL items need to be clean, free of animal fur, free of smoke and other odors, and in good repair. If items are sent that require cleaning, a charge may be imposed. You are responsible for making sure your items are clean - vacuumed, dusted, washed, etc. Dishes and glassware (or other small items) that are dusty or dirty will not be accepted, and will be either returned to the consignor or automatically donated. This is is especially the case for artificial flowers or greenery - please do not send in dusty arrangements!

 

Small items, such as accessories, must be dropped off during scheduled appointment times or during allotted walk-in times. Please visit the "Consigning Small Items"  tab for Walk-in dates. For appointments please call the final Monday of the month to schedule an appointment for the following month. For example: call Monday, January 29th to schedule an appointment in February.

 

  • Items will be reviewed during your scheduled appointment or walk-in slot. Any items we can not accept will be sent back with the consignor. If damage is discovered after the consignor has left the defective item may be automatically donated.
  • Room Service will determine a fair market value for the items. If the consignor has any pricing expectations, please inform us ahead of time so that we can research past sales of similar items to see if the expectations are in line with our prior sales. 
  • Items will be entered into our database and an inventory list will be emailed to the consignor. This list will include: price of item, when item will expire, and total items inventoried.
  • Consignors are able to check on their account by calling Room Service at 859-226-0423


Finally, there are a few items that we are unable to accept - please see below for a detailed list. If you have an item that you think we might make an exception for, please email us a photo. Specific items we are overstocked on will be listed on this page, and will likely change frequently.

 

Please note - 

  • Lamps are something we regularly get overstocked on - for this reason, we ask that each consignor only bring 2 lamps at a timeAll lamps need shades and must be in working order. If they are found to be defective, we will automatically donate them.

  • All clocks must be in working order when brought in (with batteries if applicable). We will no longer accept clocks without functioning batteries.
