Tips for shopping at The Consignment Gallery
Yes, the prices are incredible — but if you want to take full advantage of our unique shopping experience, here are a few pro tips…
If you fall in love, act fast!
Most items sell within a few weeks of arriving on our showroom floor. Some sell within a few hours. All our consigned items are unique so once they are gone, they are GONE. And don’t worry about how you’ll get it home, we deliver.
Everything in our store is “as is”
We select only the best items in the most pristine condition possible into our store. But we do not steam clean, reupholster, refinish, or do anything beyond very light repairs. Everything you see is sold as-is.
We aren’t allowed to negotiate
Our job is to get the best possible price for our consigners and so we are not allowed to negotiate, haggle or cut deals. The price you see on the tag is the very best price we can offer.
Watch for markdowns!
Every consigned item has a date at the top of the price tag. If an item doesn’t sell, we will mark the price down 20% after 30 days. After 60 days? Another 20%. These changes are indicated on the price tag. Nothing stays more than 90 days.
Shop carefully, all sales are final
Measure carefully! If you forget to bring a tape measure, don’t worry — we have plenty in the showroom. All sales are final though, we cannot offer refunds or exchanges on any item.
Believe it or not, consignment shopping is different than shopping at any other furniture store.
We don’t have a warehouse or extensive inventory of a particular item like at a mall or big box retailer; we can’t haggle or negotiate like an antique store; we reduce prices on items every 30 days; all sales are final.
Here are a few questions first-time shoppers usually have:
What day should I come to see the best selection?
Typically, because items are coming in throughout the week you’ll see the most inventory on Friday at our store.
What day should I come if I want the best discounts?
Tuesday! Tuesdays are a tradition for regular customers at The Consignment Gallery. Because we are closed on Sundays and Mondays, we are marking down three times as much inventory on Tuesday than on any other day!
What if I love a piece but can’t pick it up the same day?
We can hold purchased items for pickup here at the store for up to seven days. We also offer delivery service in Colorado Springs, Monument and Woodland Park.
Want to be the first to know when a great piece comes in?
We don’t have a “wish list” but we do have a couple of ways to let interested shoppers know what just came into the showroom. You can like us on Facebook or use the form below to get notified via email.
