Sell With Us

How it Works:

If you are interested in consigning an item, please email photos of your item to our buyers at info@mimisatticithaca.com.
We take in new items Monday through Saturday 10am-5pm and Sunday 12pm-5pm.
  • Appointments are encouraged, but not required. To schedule an appointment, please call us at (607) 882-9038. 

  • All items should be clean, in good condition and free of odors such as smoke, pets, storage, etc.

  • Smaller items should be brought in a cardboard box or bag.

  • When you’re ready to sell with us, come to Unit 8 of 401 Elmira Road, and pull in parallel to the curb.

  • If you have an appointment, once your appointment time has started please unload your items and bring them inside. If you do not have an appointment, check in with the intake team in Unit 8 before unloading your items.

  • If you cannot move something on your own, please bring along someone you are already in close contact with, such as a family member, roommate, or partner. If you're unable to bring someone along to lift heavy items, please let us know so we can make arrangements to have staff available to assist you.

  • When you have finished unloading, park your car in any of the available spots in the parking lot. Then return to Unit 8 to complete the intake paperwork and discuss your items with our intake team.

  • You are welcome to visit the showroom while we price your items.

  • We will email you an itemized list and a copy of the consignment agreement** for your records after we process your items.

  • Items that we pass on will be returned to you.
  • You may choose to receive your payment by either check or store credit.

    • Bookshelves
    • Glassware and dishes in fun colors and retro styles
    • Practical sofas and couches that kids can be rough on
    • Comfortable living room chairs
    • Small tables, & TV tray tables

      Pricing & Payment:

      Consignment
      We consign furniture , kitchen appliances, and items that we would price for $20 or more.  Our Intake Specialists will work with you to find a selling price that feels right to you and will work in our market. Our consignment period is 60 days and you are paid after your items sell. You will receive 50% of the selling price in check or 60% in store credit. 

      Payments are made at the end of your consignment period or once all of your item/s have sold. Store Credit is applied to accounts and checks are sent out on the 1st and 15th of each month.

      Buying Outright
      We are selectively buying small items such as dishes and décor “outright”. Rather than the items going on consignment, the seller receives 35% of what we expect to sell the items for in a check or 45% in store credit upfront.

      ** We are Updating our terms of service regarding donation of unsold consignment items. See Below.**

      Mimi’s Attic Sellers’ Agreement Addendum

      Effective 18 June 2021

      All items consigned on or after 18 June 2021 and not picked up by the end of their consignment period, will be subject to a $25 sustainable relocation fee per group of items. (The pick up date for your items can be found on your consignment receipt) 

      Due to local donation partners no longer accepting donations, we have removed the option for items to be “donated” at the end of your consignment period. All consigned items must be picked up by the end of their consignment period in order not to incur the $25 fee.

      We are actively seeking alternative donation partners consistent with our values of reusability, minimizing waste, and inclusivity. If you have any suggestions on possible donation partners, including options outside of Tompkins County, please send them to Kevin at MoverCoordinator@MimisAtticIthaca.com
