What is Consignment Furniture?
Consignment furniture doesn’t mean used and it doesn’t mean old. Many of the items at Divine Consign are new or nearly new. Divine Consign only accepts the best quality furniture. We do not accept junk!
How can I consign furniture and home decor with Divine Consign?
Consigning your furniture is EASY! Submit photos for pre-approval by using our handy consignment submission form on our website or download our app. All furniture pieces must be pre-approved. Divine Consign also offers affordable pick up services for those who need a little help getting your items to our store.
How will you price my item?
It is in our interest to price your items at a high enough price so we both make money, but reasonably so your items sell quickly and are not marked down. Remember – this is consignment, so while it won’t make you rich, Divine Consign will it as easy and convenient as possible!
Will you ever mark my items down? (a/k/a do you negotiate prices?)
Our markdown dates and prices are clearly written on our tags.
How will I know when my items sold?
Divine Consign will NOT call or email you when your furniture sells. You must monitor your account (or contact the store directly) to see if your furniture has sold. Likewise, Divine Consign will not automatically send you a check when your furniture has sold. You MUST request a check – which you can do via phone, email or just stop by the store and pick up a check anytime (no appointment necessary).
What are samples and showroom closeouts?
Showroom samples are brand new pieces of furniture that the manufacturer has used as displays in their showrooms or at large trade shows. Once the showroom is ready to display new lines or the trade show is over, the manufacturer needs to move the pieces on out! Since the furniture is no longer in boxes and a few people might have looked at them, the manufacturers can no longer sell them for the high prices as the rest of their merchandise. So, the manufacturers will sell off the entire showrooms to a single dealer at incredibly low prices per piece, but in order to purchase these showrooms, dealers must make deals in bulk, sometimes up to 20 tractor-trailer loads of furniture at a time.
Closeouts are the past lines of furniture (think about it like last year’s model of car) that manufacturers have decided they no longer want to produce. In order to clear out space in their warehouses for new lines, the manufacturers once again strike deals with large dealers to purchase entire warehouses full of furniture at a time.
The important info to take away from here is that showroom samples and closeouts are all still brand new furniture!
The best part is that you get it at a fraction of the price!
How much/when will I get paid?
When your furniture sells, you receive 50% of the final selling price of your furniture. Use the proceeds from the sale of your furniture as store credit toward the purchase new furniture. You can also request a check. When your account balance exceeds $50 (or no active items in your account), stop by and pick up a check any time – no appointment necessary! If you can’t make it in, give us a call, we will send you a check.
Please note: Divine Consign will NOT call or email you when your furniture sells. You must monitor your online account or inquire with the store directly. Likewise, checks will NOT automatically be mailed to you. You must request a check.
How long is the consignment period?
What happens when my consignment period is over?
Please note that any item with a final selling price of less than $10 WILL NOT be returned. If that item does not sell within the consignment period, it becomes the property of Divine Consign. This is a relatively new policy, so please take note.
Divine Consign will hold onto your furniture for 10 days after your consignment period ends. If you wish to retrieve any unsold furniture, you must do so within 10 days of the expiration of your consignment period.When the consignment period ends and if you fail to retrieve your items within the 10 day grace period, the items will become the property of Divine Consign.
You will have 24/7 access to your online account to monitor your consignment period and contact us if your items haven’t sold. Divine Consign will NOT contact you at the end of your consignment period. You must monitor your account and contact Divine Consign if you would like your items returned.

How often does inventory change?
The best way to keep with our quickly changing inventory is to check our online store for new additions. Also, sign up to receive our emails. Our email friends are the first to get notice of truckloads, designer items, specials and sales.
When do items get marked down?
Our markdown schedule is as follows:
Day 28: 20% markdown
An item with an initial price of $100 becomes $80.
Day 48: 40% markdown
The item with an initial price of $100 becomes $60.
Day 60: 60% markdown
The item with an initial price of $100 becomes $40 and the consignment period is over.
Certain furniture is not subject to this markdown schedule (ex: Horchow/Neiman Marcus, Merchandise Mart, and interior designer furniture). These types of items are rarely marked down and still sell very quickly- so don’t let that fool you!
