Frequently Ask Questions
does your consignment process work?
We accept items that are in good, sellable condition. The prices are determined at the store by our staff. The items are reduced in price every 30 days and kept on the floor for up to four months. The owner receives 60% of the actual selling price.
kinds of things do you accept?
We accept furniture of almost any type. Bedroom furniture
such as dressers, chests, beds, nightstands. We no longer accept
bedding. We take den/living room furniture that is in good condition.
We are limited on space for upholstered pieces and these items typically
don't sell for very much. We accept dining room furniture and kitchen
sets. These can be simply chairs or sold as a table by itself. Odd
pieces such as tables, cabinets, shelves, chairs all sell very well.
We ask that you email or come by with a photo of sofas and dining tables so that we can determine if we have a market for your item at the time.
We also accept accessories such as mirror, lamps, and ornate
items to decorate with. These items are reviewed when you drop them
off and we will let you know if we think that we can sell them for
How do you decide if you can sell it and for how much?
try to keep our store stocked with nice things that someone would
want to use in their home. We consider how old and if that item
can be used in decorating a home. We also consider the pricing based
on what you might pay for that item if it were new and sell it for
approximately half. We ask that all items be in good, working condition. Drawers should open and close properly and nothing should be broken.
Do you accept antiques?
we do have many antiques and collectibles in the store. We are not
an antique store and we do not have the knowledge to price these
types of things. We like to think of our store as a place to find
usable items. If you have an antique that can be reasonably priced
we would love to help you find a home for it.
Do you accept china and glassware?
can sell newer more reasonably priced items such as this. We do
not have an interest in stocking our shelves with fine antique china
and crystal. These items can have a very high price tag and probably
wouldn't sell for the actual value. The majority of our customers
would buy it because they like it not because of it's history.
How do I get paid?
are processed at the end of the month after all your sold items
have been calculated. Customers should receive a call to pick up their check by the 10th of the month.
What do you NOT accept in the store?
do not sell children's furniture such as cribs, strollers and high
chairs. We no longer accept bedding and window treatments. We have stopped accepting rugs and jewelry. On occasion
we will accept custom window treatments if they are not too dated
and out of style. We do not accept accessories of the country motif
or handmade items such as needlepoint.
Do you accept Christmas decorations?
do have a Christmas corner full of fun things. We do not accept
trees. We will start receiving Christmas items October 1st of each year. We do not reduce these items and we do not return them. If there are Christmas decorating items still available on December 26th we will remove them from inventory!
What if the item doesn't sell after four months?
At the end of the consignment period the item will be removed from inventory. At that time Bella’s House will dispose of in the appropriate matter. If you, the consignor, wish to have the item returned it will be your responsibility to pick it up before the end of 120 days.
