Consignment FAQ

A consignment store showcases and sells your items in return for a percentage of the final sale price. The Consignor (You) owns the items throughout the sales process. The Store and the Consignor do not make any money until the items actually sell.
Buying "gently used" items is just smart. You will save money over buying new, and if you can't tell the difference from new, who will?

Also, due to our constantly changing inventory you avoid "cookie cutter" decor in your home and you will have a unique shopping experience every time.

Buyers at CCG will notice our price tags are different than other stores. Our prices decrease over time on the tag.

Example item:
Initial selling price of the item upon its arrival to CCG = $100
Item price 30 days after the initial price = $85
Item price 60 days after the initial price = $70
Item price 90 days after the initial price = $55

So, given the above example:
*Shopping the item on day 10 after its arrival would cost you $100.
*Shopping the item on day 95 after its arrival would cost you $55 (if someone else hasn't purchased it first of course).

This systematic markdown of items is very effective at finding the "natural fair market value" of the item, and it just makes shopping more fun as well :).
When selling items yourself, you are inconvenienced with many annoying variables: advertising, garage sales, meeting with strangers in your own home for larger items or needing to drive a far distance to meet with them for small items, phone calls, emails, and texts at all hours, "maybe" buyers, and no shows.

Save yourself time, energy, and sanity! We offer you an easy and safe alternative to selling items yourself. We expand the marketability of your item by: attractively displaying your item in our stylish gallery, accepting credit cards, and most importantly, we work with the buyer so that you don't have to!

SMALLER ITEMS: For acceptable smaller items (items that one person can easily carry) you may bring up to 15 items maximum per trip, no appointment needed. Or, you may send photos first so that you know what to bring and what to leave at home. Please choose whichever method is more convenient for you personally.

LARGER ITEMS: For acceptable larger items (items requiring two or more people to carry and larger artwork), we do REQUIRE an emailed picture first. This assures that we do not waste your time transporting a large/bulky item to us that may turn out to be unacceptable for consignment at CCG. The top of this webpage has a convenient email link to submit your pictures to us for review.

After we receive your emailed pictures of the large item, we will evaluate whether the item is something we think we have the market for, and we will get back to you (normally within 24 hours). Upon our approval for consignment, you may bring the large item to us during normal business hours.

When you come into the store with your accepted items, we will discuss initial pricing with you. At the end of your visit you will receive your item list and will be asked to sign our consignment contract.

Please note that during this process we will ask you for: Your name, address, phone number, and email address. (Please remember, the name and address that you provide will be where we will mail your check for the items that we sell for you.)
As you prepare your items for consignment, ask yourself: “Would I buy this item in its current condition?” If the answer is "no", then please take a minute to dust, polish, clean, or vacuum your item before bringing it in to the shop.
You will be paid by check via the United States Postal Service. Checks will be processed on the 15th of each month for items sold in the previous month. (Please note, we do have a check minimum that needs to be reached on accounts before a check is generated.)
Cranberry Consignment Gallery ultimately determines the "initial selling price" of items in our showroom.

However, during the intake process, we will ask you for your thoughts on a "SUGGESTED initial selling price" for the item.

CCG's ultimate "initial selling price" is influenced by the item's: suggested initial price by the Consignor, the item's: age, original cost, condition, and current market demand.
Ultimately, the Buyers in the market have the power to set the "final sale price" of the consigned item through our automatic markdown process.

Our markdown process occurs in 30-day intervals. The first markdown is at 85% of the initial selling price after 30 days. The second markdown is at 70% of the initial selling price after 60 days. And the third markdown is at 55% of the initial selling price after 90 days.

An example of the above would be as follows: Initial price $100. 30 day price $85, 60 day price $70, 90 day price $55.

Our research within our industry has shown that markdowns simply work. If the price is higher than the fair market value, the price will drop. But, potential buyers will be fearful that they may lose the item at the next price drop date to another buyer. Thus, there is incentive to purchase before a drop in price, not necessarily after a drop in price, as you would initially think.

Example: 10 buyers see the price of $100 as too high. 2 of the buyers are thinking $85 is fair and 4 of the buyers are thinking $70 is fair. The ones waiting for $70 will miss out on the item at the first 30 day price drop to $85. The market will successfully determine a fair price for your item.
Cranberry Consignment Gallery offers a 50/50 percentage split.
We will take exceptional care of the items consigned. However, merchandise is the Consignor's until sold. Please cover items of exceptional value under homeowners or renter's insurance policies. We will not be held responsible for any damage, breakage, loss by fire, theft, water, mildew, mold, or other loss to the item.
All sales are final! No returns, refunds, or exchanges. Payments must be made in the store at the time of purchase, phone and online payments are not accepted. We do not offer layaways and we do not accept partial deposits on items.

All items dropped off are subject to the terms and conditions of the contract. Items go directly onto the sales floor as we do not have storage room for items.

Please bring everything you will need to transport your items when you come to pick them up. We do not keep ties, straps, padding, or other transportation items in the store. We will help you load smaller items, but beyond that, they are your responsibility. If the item is large, you must bring help to load/unload the items.
