Tips for Selling on Consignment

When you consign furniture and jewelry, you get the chance to sell your unwanted items quickly and efficiently. If you are looking to clean out your home or earn a little bit of extra cash, use the following tips to optimize your consignment possibilities:

Clean Up Your Pieces

In order to get the most money for your pieces, you should take the time to clean them up and ensure that they look their best. If you are selling furniture, you should thoroughly vacuum the upholstery to get rid of dirt and dust that might ruin its aesthetic appeal. If you are selling jewelry, find the best way to clean the metal and the stones so they shine. The better your pieces look, the better chance you have of getting your asking price for them.

Do Some Research on the Market

Before you put your items up for sale, you should do some market research to see what kinds of items are selling. You might want to go through the consignment shop to get a better understanding of the items for sale and their asking prices. This helps you decide if the items you plan to sell will have enough potential buyers.

Find a Quality Consignment Shop

Give yourself the best opportunity to sell your items by working with a quality consignment store. Turn to stores that have a strong reputation in your community for providing a reputable location from which to sell your goods. You should also look for stores that have a lot of traffic and utilize the power of advertising so you have the best chance of getting top dollar for your items.

Busting Myths About Leather Furniture

Busting Myths About Leather Furniture

Leather furniture is a beautiful and durable addition for any home. A lot of people tend to shy away from it, however, because they believe certain myths about the material. Keep reading to learn the truth about leather so you can finally enjoy the look of it in your home:

Myth: Leather Furniture Will Not Last As Long As Other Materials

Since it is a natural material, people tend to believe that leather will not last. In fact, the natural aging process of leather makes it even more beautiful than when you bought it. Leather pieces change and grow with your family and they can become a beautiful addition to your home for many years to come. Instead of suffering major wear and tear like other materials, a great piece of leather furniture really comes into its own as it ages.

Myth: Leather Furniture Is Too Expensive

There are plenty of affordable leather options available that fit nicely into your budget. Shop at the local consignment store to find leather at even better prices. Fabric furniture gets worn down over time, but leather continues to get better through the years. Even if you pay a little bit less for a fabric sofa or armchair, it will not offer the same kind of value as leather pieces.

Myth: Leather Is Hard to Maintain

Whether you have kids or pets, leather is actually very easy to keep clean and looking great. You should use a quality leather conditioner once every 6-12 months to keep the material supple. For most basic cleanings, you will only have to use a dust cloth and the vacuum cleaner. If you keep the furniture away from direct sunlight, you can prevent fading and maintain its original aesthetic appeal.

Home Consignment Center has a wide array of beautiful and affordable furniture options in Newport Beach. Our inventory is constantly changing so you can always find what you need to improve your interior design.

Choosing the Right Furniture for Your Home

The furniture you use in your home completely changes the look and feel of the space. Before you buy furniture, you should consider the décor you want to create so you can choose pieces that really meet your style and function needs. Use the following tips to help narrow your furniture selection and find furniture that fits perfectly into your home life:

Shop for Quality

Whether you want to build a modern or a traditional décor, you should always shop for furniture that is built well. Take the time to check out the craftsmanship of any piece you plan to buy to ensure that it will be a functional piece that can enhance your décor for many years. Shopping at the consignment shop helps you find high quality furniture at prices you can afford so you can create your ideal décor with pieces that are built to last.

Find Your Style

Even if you do not have a particular decorating style in mind when you get to the store, you should still give yourself the opportunity to gravitate toward pieces that appeal to you visually. Once you start to see the kind of furniture that attracts you, you can determine your true decorating style, which will make it easier to shop for more furniture and accessories.

Consider Your Available Space

The size of furniture you buy is also an important factor to consider. This will ensure that your new furniture works well inside of your space. Take measurements before you start to shop so you know what kind of pieces you need to comfortably fill your space.

Selecting the Perfect Dining Room Table

Selecting the Perfect Dining Room Table

When choosing a dining room table, it is important to find a size, style, and shape that caters to all of your entertaining needs. Use the following tips while browsing through the furniture selection at your local consignment store to select a dining room table that enhances your home design and makes it easy to serve meals of any size.

Decide on a Shape

The shape of the table changes the atmosphere of your dining room. If you want to inspire easy conversation between small groups of people, you should choose a round or an oval shape. If you host dinners with large groups of people, though, a rectangular table usually offers more space for guests. Choose your table shape based on your needs to get the most use out of this important piece of furniture.

Spend Some Time Choosing Chairs

You can use the dining room chairs to add visual appeal to the table area. You might want to consider opting for chairs with colorful upholstery that add some excitement to your dining room design. You can also mix and match a few different styles to create a unique aesthetic effect for your room. Make sure your chairs rest at a good height in relation to the table and provide comfort and support that lasts for hours.

Choose a Table with Character

Whether you have modern or traditional tastes, you should try to find a table that has a personality of its own. Shopping at consignment furniture stores gives you access to a wide variety of dining room tables so you can choose one with enough character to serve as the centerpiece for your dining room décor.

Home Consignment Center has the best selection of consignment furniture in Sacramento, Roseville, and Folsom.

Signs You Need to Replace Your Dining Room Set

Signs You Need to Replace Your Dining Room Set

For many families, the dining room is one of the most meaningful spaces in the home, since it serves as the location for countless family dinners and occasional celebrations with friends. If your dining room is a popular spot for you and yours to spend time, then be sure to fill it with comfortable, practical, and attractive furniture from your Roseville furniture store. Here are three major signs that you need to replace your dining room set:

Ugly Scratches Have Ruined the Surface

Although most dining room table surfaces are meant to resist scratches made by clumsy kids or old dishware, it’s not uncommon for them to fall victim to a major scratch, dent, or burn. If your table or chairs show signs of scratches or similar damage, then now may be a good time to replace them with sturdier and more attractive models from your Roseville or Folsom consignment store.

Chairs Are Missing or Don’t Match the Table

Are you frequently dragging a kitchen table chair into the dining room to accommodate guests? Or perhaps you lack the right amount of chairs to sit your family comfortably. If either scenario rings true for you, then say goodbye to the days of adding mismatched chairs to your dining table and consider investing in a new set from a consignment furniture store.

The Set Is the Wrong Size for the Space

It’s also time to consider replacing your dining room set if your current furniture is either too large or too small for the space. A dining room table that is too big for the room will instantly make it feel smaller, whereas one that is too small will make the space seem confused. You can avoid both effects in your dining space by choosing a set that complements the room’s unique dimensions.

Here at the Home Consignment Center, we offer a wide range of dining room set styles for you to choose from. No matter what your décor preference is, you’re sure to find furniture that suits it well at any one of our Sacramento area shops. Call (916) 302-4390 to learn more about buying and consigning with us.
