Most people are hesitant to throw away or donate their belongings—especially if those belongings have some value. Consignment stores are great resources for both buyers and sellers. If you are looking to get rid of some furniture, décor accessories, or jewelry, a consignment shop can help you do it. Keep reading to find out how:

The Store Sells It for You

One of the biggest benefits of working with a consignment shop is the use of their store space. The store handles the process of selling the goods so you do not have to do it. Once someone buys the item, you and the store split the profit. Although the store gets a higher percentage, you can sell the item at a great price and with minimal hassle.

You Drop Off Your Items

Consignment stores are always in the market for quality furniture and jewelry to sell. Once you hand the item over, you do not have to do anything until the piece is sold. This means that you can take advantage of the store’s client traffic and their advertising and sell your item quickly.

Everybody Wins

When you work with a consignment shop, you, the store, and the person who buys your merchandise all come out on top. You do not have to worry about scrambling around to find someone to buy your item. The store gets merchandise without having to pay up front for it. The buyer gets access to an extensive inventory of gently-used items at unbeatable prices.

Come to one of the Home Consignment Center’s Sacramento-area locations today to sell your jewelry and furniture on consignment. With our heavy traffic flow, we can help you sell your merchandise quickly and pay you the money we owe you as soon as possible.

3 Problems You Might Encounter Selling Home Goods or Jewelry on Your Own

3 Problems You Might Encounter Selling Home Goods or Jewelry on Your Own

Do you have unused or unwanted items taking up space in your home? If so, it may be time to get rid of them! Selling home goods or jewelry is a great way to make some extra money while removing items that are collecting dust from your home. A consignment store makes selling easy, but selling on your own may lead to some problems:

Getting Scammed

Sales websites attract different types of scammers who try to steal personal information from sellers and other website users. If you create a posting for your home good or jewelry, you may have to deal with scammers sending you emails with harmful links or personal questions that can be used to steal from you.

Dealing with Low Offers

You know how much your items are worth. Consignment stores also know how much they can expect to make from different types of home goods or jewelry. Online buyers may not know how much your items are worth, though, which is why they will try to make low offers when expressing interest. Get a fair amount for your items by selling them through a consignment store.

Having Strangers Come to Your Home

If you find success from an online posting, you will have to meet up with the buyer to give him the item and collect your money. The buyer usually goes to the seller for the exchange, but this means a person that you do not know will be coming into your home. When you choose a consignment center, your items are sold in a store. Additionally, some buyers ask sellers to come to their homes in order to make the exchange. This is another uncomfortable situation that is also inconvenient for the seller. Consignment stores offer convenience and much more.

The Home Consignment Center Gives Tips for Taking the Proper Measurements for Your Furniture

Sunday, July 14th, 2013

Modern living-room interior.

Decorating your home with consignment furniture can be a very exciting undertaking, but also one that requires forethought and preparation. For instance, you should know how to measure your furniture and determine what can comfortably fit in your intended space. No matter how taken you may be with a particular piece of furniture, if it does not fit well into your living room or bedroom, it will cause headaches down the line. Keep these tips in mind when furniture shopping.

Take Down the Basics

No matter how big the couch or small the table, all furniture takes up three-dimensional space. That’s why you should carefully measure the height, width, and length of any piece you intend to buy. When you are searching for large items, such as a couch or dining room table, these measurements can prove essential for calculating whether your furnishings can adequately fit in your room.

Consider Standard Measurements

Before beginning your furniture search, it may be helpful to review the standard measurements for the type of furniture you want to purchase. Though some pieces may have distinctive features that slightly alter their dimensions, many furniture manufacturers adhere to the same general measurements for big ticket items. By knowing ahead of time the expected size of a piece of furniture, you can better determine what will or will not fit into an allotted space.

Remember to Measure Doorways

One task that many people forget to do before buying furniture is to measure all the doorways through which the furniture must pass before coming to its final resting place. Though furniture movers are skilled at getting furniture through small spaces, you don’t want to risk potential damage to either your furniture or doorway. Always make sure you have sufficient room for transporting your furniture through your home.

Let the Home Consignment Center of Sacramento help you find the perfect couch, chair, or table for your home. Our capable sales representatives can see to it that you have accurate measurements for all pieces you wish to purchase.

The Home Consignment Center Presents Color Theory for Interior Design

Saturday, June 1st, 2013

 

When you buy new furniture for your space, you have the opportunity to transform your interior design. Color is a huge aspect of home décor. Color theory is an interior designer’s secret weapon when adding new life and depth to a space.

Using complementary colors is a great way to add excitement to a room. These shades are on opposite sides of the color wheel and play off each other well. Analogous colors are close together on the color wheel and provide interesting visual stimulation for the eye. Try not to use more than three shades in a room. If you contrast warm and cool shades, you can create an inviting space.

Use your newfound color knowledge to choose consignment furniture and accessories from the Home Consignment Center that really enhance your décor. We offer high-quality pieces at amazing prices. Give us a call at (925) 272-4318 today to learn more about our services and locations.
