How do I find out if my items will sell in your store?
Please take a photo of the item(s) and text to 331-222-9422, use the SUBMIT CONSIGNMENT ITEMS form or bring photos to the store including your name, address, phone number as well at the brand name and orig. purchase prices. From the photos, we can determine if the items would be a good fit for the store and set up a time for the items to come in to the store.
Are my items marked down over the 120 day consignment period?
We mark items down 10% after 25 days, 10% at 50 days, 10% at 75 days and an additional 10% off at 100 days.
I only have decor, accessories &/or jewelry to consign. Do I have to take photos of these too?
No, you can bring these items into the store any time.
I am in a hurry, do I need to wait?
No, we offer Drop & Go: If you don’t have time to wait while we go through your items, you may drop your items off and go. Please note: For Drop & Go, if you want to pick up any items that we cannot consign, please pick them up within 24 hours of drop off, otherwise they will be donated without further notice.
How are my items priced?
We have over 40 years of combined experience valuing previously owned and new items. We price items after we have had an opportunity to inspect them. At that time, we will determine a price with consideration given to the original cost, age, demand, overall condition, brand name and market demand.
How am I paid?
We are partners with you on a 60/40 (60% to you) basis on items that sell for over $750 and on a 50/50 basis on items sold for under $749. Checks are mailed on the 20th of each month for the previous months sold items.
What happens if my items don’t sell?
Most items will sell within the first 60 days, however, if an item does not sell at the end of the 120 day consignment period you may pick up your item or it will become property of Acosta’s Consignment to sell or donate at our discretion. We donate to the Living Well Cancer Resource Center & the Reach for the Moon Foundation.
If you would like any unsold items back after their consignment period, please mark on your calendar 120 days from the date you consigned and pick them up with 2 days of that date.
