Consigning at Style Your Space

Style Your Space consignment shop is the best place for you to sell items which still have value, but are no longer needed in your home.  Consigning offers a hassle-free, convenient way to sell items, saving you the cost of advertising, showing your items, and opening your house to strangers.

No appointment is necessary to bring in home décor and accessories for evaluation. They can be brought in Monday thru Saturday, 11–4, unless previously discussed.  A buyer is not available on Sunday.

For furniture, we would need photos first.  Photos can be e-mailed to info@styleyourspacestl.com or brought in on a camera or phone.

Please provide your own help when bringing in large furniture.  We can recommend names of movers who will assist you for a moving fee.

The management of SYS will carefully inspect your items, and price with consideration given to condition, style, color, manufacturer, age, the demand for the item, along with past sales history of similar items.  We always strive to get the best possible price; however, it is in everyone’s best interest to price items at a fair market value that will realistically sell within the first 60 days.  Please note that it is the market’s response to an item that truly sets the price.

After your items are received and priced, they are assigned computerized inventory numbers, tagged and displayed on our selling floor in attractive settings along with other complimentary accessories.

Periodic markdowns will be taken during the consignment period at the sole discretion of the store to facilitate its sale.

Tips to get the most from your products:

  • All items must be ready for floor presentation and display upon arrival.  Please clean your items before bringing them in.  Remove dirt, dust, fingerprints etc.  Windex and Murphy’s cleaner are good products.  Clean off the cobwebs and spider nests from underneath your furniture.  A cleaning fee will be charged if items are not up to standard.
  • Inspect each item carefully.  Cloth items should have no rips, tears or stains.  Glass items should have no cracks or chips.  Wood products can be enhanced with ‘Old English’ or similar product to fill in scratches.  Check that all the screws are tightened.  Loose joints should be re-glued.Loose-jointed items do not sell, or if they do, at a reduced price.
  • Items that sell have these qualities: eye appeal, quality, clean, and fair price.

Terms:  We do not charge a set-up or any other consigning fees.  When items sell, we share the proceeds with you 50/50.  Payment for items sold will not be available until the items are completely paid, and 15 days after the sale.

New account payouts will be available 45 days from the date of your initial contract.  Please contact SYS for your payout information.  Account balance inquiries and payouts can only be made by the owners (Donna and Tom) Monday-Saturday from 11-4.  Please call or e-mail first so we can have your payment ready

If your items have not sold within the 90 day consignment period, you as the consignor have 30 days to contact SYS to determine the fate of the product.  If we do not hear from you, it will be assumed you do not want the items.  They become the property of SYS (unless otherwise discussed) to be donated or disposed of at our discretion.

It is YOUR responsibility to keep track of the pick up date. You will not be notified. 

All reasonable care will be taken of articles consigned to this shop, but they are left at the owner’s risk.  We are not responsible for damage caused by handling, loss by fire, water damage, or theft.
