CONSIGN

Consignment is the process by which we sell your furniture. “Consignment” simply means “we sell it for you”.

Consignment furniture doesn’t mean used and it doesn’t mean old. Many of the items at Divine Consign are new or nearly new. Divine Consign only accepts the best quality furniture. We do not accept junk!


Consignment is the process by which we sell your furniture. “Consignment” simply means “we sell it for you”.

All furniture sold at Divine Consign must be pre-approved. Head to our Online Consignment Form to get the pre-approval process started. Please allow 48 hours for a response./p>


The staff at Divine Consign is very skilled at pricing furniture so that it will sell. We’ll consider the condition, purchase price, age, style, etc. of your item, and typically end up setting the initial price between 20-30% of retail value. It will remain at that price for three weeks before markdowns begin. You receive 50% of the final selling price.

It is in our interest to price your items at a high enough price so we both make money, but reasonably so your items sell quickly and are not marked down. Remember – this is consignment, so while it won’t make you rich, Divine Consign will it as easy and convenient as possible!


Divine Consign does not negotiate prices. We have an established markdown schedule that provides for automatic markdowns based upon the length of time an item has been in the store. Items are marked down 20% every three weeks.

Our markdown dates and prices are clearly written on our tags.


When your furniture has been approved for consignment, you will be given your own online account. You can monitor this online account 24/7 to check the balance of your account and track your items. Your online account is updated daily. When your furniture sells, it will be designated as SOLD in your online account.

Divine Consign will NOT call or email you when your furniture sells. You must monitor your account (or contact the store directly) to see if your furniture has sold. Likewise, Divine Consign will not automatically send you a check when your furniture has sold. You MUST request a check – which you can do via phone, email or just stop by the store and pick up a check anytime (no appointment necessary).


When your furniture sells, you receive 50% of the final selling price of your furniture. Use the proceeds from the sale of your furniture as store credit toward the purchase new furniture. You can also request a check. When your account balance exceeds $50 (or no active items in your account), stop by and pick up a check any time – no appointment necessary! If you can’t make it in, give us a call, we will send you a check – no extra charge.

Please note: Divine Consign will NOT call or email you when your furniture sells. You must monitor your online account or inquire with the store directly. Likewise, checks will NOT automatically be mailed to you. You must request a check.


Divine Consign’s consignment period is 60 days.


Divine Consign will hold onto your furniture for 10 days after your consignment period ends. Most consignors elect to donate unsold furniture to deserving charities, but if you wish to retrieve any unsold furnitue, you must do so within 10 days of the expiration of your consignment period. If you do not request that your furniture be returned within 10 days of the expiration of your consignment period, your furniture will be donated and cannot be returned to you.

You will have 24/7 access to your online account to monitor your consignment period and contact us if your items haven’t sold. Divine Consign will NOT contact you at the end of your consignment period. You must monitor your account and contact Divine Consign if you would like your items returned.

SHOP

Divine Consign’s inventory changes daily! We only keep items in the store for 60 days, BUT 75% of all of our furniture sells within the first three weeks of arrival. We add an average of 50 new items into inventory per day.

The best way to keep with our quickly changing inventory is to check our online store for new additions. Also, sign up to receive our emails. Our email friends are the first to get notice of truckloads, designer items, specials and sales.


We mark down most furniture every three weeks (we do not negotiate prices). Our markdown schedule is as follows:

Day 21: 20% markdown
An item with an initial price of $100 becomes $80.

Day 42: 40% markdown
The item with an initial price of $100 becomes $60.

Day 60: 60% markdown
The item with an initial price of $100 becomes $40 and the consignment period is over.

Certain furniture is not subject to this markdown schedule (ex: Horchow/Neiman Marcus, Merchandise Mart, and interior designer furniture). These types of items are rarely marked down and still sell very quickly- so don’t let that fool you!


We know that you may need time to think about a purchase or measure to make sure a furniture item will fit

Divine Consign allows you to hold furniture items ONLY until the end of the business day you put them on hold. No exceptions. We have to keep our consignors happy!


Of course we do! Divine Consign offers delivery/pickup for a very reasonable fee, starting at just $35 for the OPRF area.

Our professionally trained delivery men deliver furniture 5 days per week (Tuesday – Saturday).


At Divine Consign, you can try our furniture in your home before making your final decision!
