Walk-ins are only accepted first-come first-served between 10:00am - 10:45am on Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays, and every other Monday. If you have more than 1 piece of furniture or 1 small box of items, we ask that you book an appointment for your items.

  • Always check in with the intake team in Unit 8 before unloading your items.
  • If you cannot move something on your own, please bring someone along, such as a family member, roommate, partner, or other hired help. 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.
  • Items that we pass on will be returned to you right away.

Please Note: Items that arrive at Mimi's disassembled are subject to assembly/repair fees at the rate of $120/hr billed in 5 minute increments. Please discuss assembly requirements with the buyers and/or delivery person.

      Pricing & Payment:

      Consignment
      We typically 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 consignment items sell. You will receive 40% of the selling price in check or 50% in store credit (this choice is made when you first consign your item(s) and cannot be changed at a later date. Store Credit cannot be converted to Cash or vice versa.)

      Buying Outright
      We are selectively buying small items such as dishes and décor “outright”. Rather than the items going on consignment, the seller receives 30% of what we expect to sell the items for in a check or 40% in store credit upfront.

      If you are leaving Central New York, we may also be able to buy your furniture “outright”. Please reach out to our Intake team to discuss these arrangements ahead of time.

      Out-of-Season items may also be purchased outright, though our offer will reflect the additional costs of storage.
