What is a consignment store?

A consignment store sells items for you and shares the profit. At AFC, our consignors receive 50% of the final selling price.

Who sets the price?

Our knowledgeable staff will determine initial prices with your approval. We welcome any information you have regarding the age, manufacture name, original cost of the item, or any history of your item(s) that would attract interest.

Antiques and other mid-century furnishings are welcome.

We will not accept the following items: cribs, lamps without shades, waterbeds, pianos, mattresses, appliances or electronics, or anything in need of repair or refining.

Is it clean?

A common question asked in a consignment store is; “Is it clean?” It’s a natural concern. Rest easy, if you are buying at AFC , the answer is YES, it is clean! Our several stage approval process insures not only the physical integrity of what we accept, but its cleanliness too.

Most of our consignments come from the region’s premier private homes, estates, and model homes. We are selective about what we accept. (We let the other stores sell the smelly, old, used stuff!)

Every piece of furniture and carpet that comes through our door is inspected for cleanliness and aroma. If it’s not clean and odor free, we won’t accept it.

We then treat every piece with a residue free, biodegradable, hospital grade sterilization product. It is one of the only non-residual products labeled effective against bed bugs, mites, fleas, fungus, and mold. It dries in less than 20 minutes leaving no odor or residue.

Are there markdowns?
