How to Consign


FAQs | What We Accept | What We Do Not Accept

Consign 639 does not accept unannounced "drop-offs", so if you are interested in consigning with us, you must contact the store to set up an appointment to bring your item(s) in to be viewed. Please go to our "Contact" page to set up an appointment. If you are interested in consigning furniture or large items, it helps to email photos, or bring photos with you to your scheduled appointment.

FAQs

What percentage is the commission?

Our commission is as follows:

35% split for items sold over $50.00
45% split for items sold under $50.00

How does Consign 639 determine the price of my items(s)?

Consign 639 will appraise each item and bases price on...

  1. What the consigner (you) paid for the item(s) new
  2. The condition of the item at present state
  3. The current retail value of the item
  4. The consumers' (general public's) demand for the item(s), (e.g. the more popular and "saleable" the item is, the more it is worth because it will sell faster)

Are my items guaranteed to sell?

Unfortunately, we do not guarantee any sales, as the economy changes everyday, and the consumer's preferences are subject to change as well. But we do our best to help you sell you sell your item(s) through several different means.

How many days do I have to sell my item(s), and what happens after that time period?

Your items are consigned for a period of 90 days. After the first 60 days, you may pick up your items at anytime. After 90 days, the items may be considered abandoned and will become the property of Consign 639. Higher priced items may be considered for a second consignment period at a lower price or taken to auction if agreed to by both parties. It is the consignor’s responsibility to contact us and make the arrangements after our contract ends. It will not be our responsibility to contact you.
