CONSIGNMENT INFORMATION

ATTENTION:

 

September 19, 2022

 

 

At this time, our small item appointments are booked through September 30th.  We will not be making any small item appointments for the first week of October. The next time to call for an appointment will be Monday October 3rd, to schedule for the week of October 10th-14th. We recommend calling as early as possible on that day to be sure you can get an appointment.

 

Because small item appointments have been filling up quickly, we will continue to  "pause" the small item appointment-making, so that we are not booking more than a couple of weeks out. We will be sure to update this message and our phone recording to reflect the status. Thank you for your patience!

 

 

ALL CONSIGNMENTS ARE BY APPOINTMENT ONLY. Please read below for details and a list of items we are not accepting. In the future, any items we are overstocked on will be listed here as well.

 

 

PLEASE CHECK BACK, AS WE WILL BE UPDATING THIS INFORMATION REGULARY.

 

We are currently overstocked on:
** If you bring these items, please be prepared for us to pass on them.

 

- sets of dishes & china

- wall art 

 

 

 

  

  • 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.

  • We are no longer accepting framed prints for the most part. We will occasionally make exceptions for original art, horse/equine art, or things with local significance. Any wall art should be approved before bringing it in. You can send pictures via email or text for approval. Please include your name when you text.

 

 

 

IMPORTANT - PLEASE NOTE:

 

Due to the high volume of emails we receive, please do not expect an immediate reply. 

We apologize for the inconvenience. We are working to make the system more efficient, but at this time just one person is responsible for emails / scheduling furniture, as well as pricing & entering all items that come in.

 

If you have not heard back from us within a week or so, please feel free to call & check in on the status. We have been getting a lot of inquiries lately, and occasionally some get missed or looked over.

 

Appointments for bringing in furniture are about 1-3 weeks out, depending on the number of pieces you have. We have a waitlist for bringing in dining furniture - expect a long wait, or the possibility that we cannot take yours at this time.

                                           THANK YOU!

Consignment Policies...

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. 

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 only. We welcome you to call or email to schedule an appointment.  Because we are now scheduling the small items, you may choose to either:

  • Drop off your boxed items for us to evaluate, and for any items we are not able to accept, we can add them to our Habitat donation boxes.
  • Or, you may wait for us to go through your items, so that you may take home any items we cannot accept. Because of space and social distancing, we just ask that you wait in your vehicle, or you may browse the shop while we review your items.


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 at the top of 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 time. All lamps need shades and must be in working order. If they are found to be defective, we will automatically donate them.
