Questions to Ask Furniture Consignment & Resale Shops

When buying used furniture, it often helps to know what questions you should ask furniture consignment and resale shops. Knowing some key questions to ask should help you determine which used furniture stores have high quality items at affordable prices.

  • Do you sell antique or contemporary furniture?
    You probably have a certain style in mind when you go shopping for furniture. This question will help you target the shops that might have designs that appeal to you.

  • Do you have furniture for homes or offices?
    Some outlets focus on office furniture while others have a wide selection of items for living rooms, dining rooms, and bedrooms.

  • What materials are used to make your products?
    Second hand doesn’t have to mean low quality. As long as you choose desks, dressers, and chairs made of sturdy materials such as oak, pine, and leather, you might find that you can balance thrift with reliability.

  • Do you offer delivery services?
    This is especially important to ask if you do not have a truck or large car. If you do not have a way to transport a sectional couch or rustic dresser, then you should look for shops that can ship them for you. It is also an important question to ask if you are unable to lift some of the modern or antique furniture that you have purchased for your home.

  • Where is your store located?
    If you have to pay for shipping, then you might want to choose a shop consignment or resale shop that is located near you. Shipping charges can get expensive when you have heavy items sent over long distances. Choose a nearby store for cheaper shipping charges.

    Furniture consignment and resale shops are businesses that sell new, second hand and antique furniture. The majority of businesses that make up this industry are usually small, privately owned, with store fronts in areas like outlet malls, or in a complex with other small businesses. Furniture shops are often divided between items that the store has bought outright, and those that are still technically owned by an independent party. For instance, if you purchase that rustic looking oak dresser you have been admiring, and it is a consignment item, the store is selling it, but part of the profit goes to the previous owner of the piece, but only when it is sold.

    If you are interested in buying, selling or putting your dining room table, chairs or living room couch on consignment, you will probably be dealing with the owner of the store. For many thrift store owners, they have some background in home design, furniture restoration or knowledge of antiques. Though none of these skills are particularly necessary, knowing how to identify the value in a stuffed leather chair, a pine bed frame, or an Amish style dresser, and then being able to describe to customers how these items can be can be laid out in a home, can all be very valuable business skills. When a customer comes in asking for kids furniture, the owner can describe the potential in a used bed set, how it can be restored, and make the sale!

    Another place to find used furniture cheaply is online. The disadvantage of looking up contemporary or resale items online is that you are unable to inspect the piece. However, online stores usually have a surplus of furniture available, from a classic oak desk, to a wicker chair, to a stunning sectional.
