        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

        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.
