Tips for Consignment Shopping

4 Quick Tips When Consignment Shopping For Beginners & Pros

1. A List: Carry a list of what you're looking for with ideal dimensions for each piece. Be sure to measure the clearance of doorways and stairs in your house. Keep a measuring tape with you.

2. Delivery: If the consignment store does not offer delivery for large pieces, you will need to arrange your own shipping. Ask the store for recommendations. Most stores will allow you to keep your purchase at the store for a few days until you can arrange delivery. (Phantastic Phinds can recommend delivery people for you)
3. Inspection: Inspect furniture carefully. Sit on chairs to test for comfort, loose joints or wobbly legs. Open doors and drawers to check for any sticking, broken parts or damaged or missing hardware.

4. Quality: Value design above finish or upholstery, which can be changed. How would a piece work if you shortened its legs or removed its drawers? If it's not an antique, imagine how paint or a slipcover can create a fresh personality.
