How Our Consignment Works

What we accept:

We accept high quality furniture appropriate for the home such as: upholstered sofas, chairs, ottomans, dining sets, kitchen tables, book cases, bedroom sets, dressers, accent and coffee tables. We accept rugs on a limited basis and they must be cleaned prior to consignment. Please inspect the items you are considering for consignment to ensure they are in excellent condition, pet and smoke free and appealing to the current market place. All furniture must be previewed before accepted. Wood pieces must be dust and dirt free and need no repair or refinishing. All hardware must be intact. At our discretion we may consider unique small accent pieces and oil paintings, but generally we do not accept art prints or lamps.

Please inspect the items you are considering for consignment to ensure they are in clean, excellent condition. All pieces must come from cat and smoke-free homes. Upholstery must be vacuumed and cleaned, and free of dirt and dust.

How to consign:

Please take photos of the items you wish to consign. If possible, you may email the photos to us or bring them to the shop during our regular business hours. Our email address is: consignment@windsorcottagehome.com In the subject line please write: Attention: Annie. Include and any and all information you have about your furniture including manufacturer, condition, age and condition. Sharing the original purchase price helps us as we determine market value. Smaller items may be brought to the shop any day during our regular hours for us to consider. If either of these options are not available to you please call the shop to discuss your items. We must see all items before we accept them for consignment.

Our consignment policy is a 90 day agreement. Every 30 days consigned items are reduced 10% and when the item sells we split 50/50. After 45 days on the sales floor, we reserve the right to mark down certain items to reflect the current market value. If a consignor would rather take their items back, it is up to those individuals to keep track of the date and contact us to pick their items up after 60 days.

Should a consignor choose not to hire a professional mover to bring items to the shop, they must bring their own “muscle power” to unload their pieces. While we are happy to help unload small items, we do not have an in-house moving staff, and are not able to help move heavy items such as sofas, heavy tables or cabinets.
