Top 10 Online Furniture Consignment Stores
Looking for online furniture consignment stores? If you’re moving, downsizing or maybe just re-decorating your space, you might find yourself with more furniture than you need. Sometimes it’s hard to let go of furniture that’s been with us over the years, and trying to coordinate selling can be stressful. So what do you do with it? You can always donate to The Salvation Army or your local charity, but you can also try to sell it. An online furniture consignment store might be the answer. Below are just a few options to get you started and hopefully make the process a little easier. You can also check your local consignment stores as well.
Some of my favorite and unique online consignment shops to get you started, in no particular order:
Apartment Therapy is a community of vintage, antique, and secondhand used furniture sellers. You can open a store, create a listing, and publish it live on Apartment Therapy’s Bazaar. This is a great, low-risk option since there are no fees to list an item. You will only be charged if your item sells. You do have to make your own shipping arrangements, but you could get started with offering local pick only. Head to ApartmentTherapy.com to learn more.
Chairish is an excellent option if you have the right items. They are design-driven and will only accept your items if they fit their curated inventory. If approved, you can list your item for free and once sold, they will organize the shipping for you. This is incredibly helpful when you are trying to ship a large object like a sofa or dining table. Once the transaction is complete, they’ll send you 70% or more of the sale price via Paypal. Not a bad deal at all. Head to chairish.com to get started.
Sotheby’s Home (formally Viyet) is very similar to Chairish. They focus on high-end luxury items. Your item needs to be approved to be listed, but after that they will do all the work for you, including the customer service. You’ll never have to talk to the customer, and they take care of all shipping arrangements too. No listing fees and they payout up to 60% of the sale price. Head to sothebys.com to learn more.
eBay – Is there anything you can’t sell on eBay? You’ve probably shopped or even sold an item on eBay but furniture? Yes, it’s a great marketplace for furniture too; however, you might not get as much for your item as you might with the above options. Buyers on eBay want a deal so sometimes top dollar is not what you might have expected. They don’t arrange shipping either, you’re on your own, but you could list as “local pick up only” and avoid the shipping altogether. eBay.com
Apt Deco is only an option if you’re in the New York, New Jersey, Connecticut area. They ask that you list your item at minimum 50% off retail and then their fee ranges from 19% – 33%. You list the item yourself, but once it’s sold, Apt Deco will take over and handle all the shipping and payment arrangements. Head to Aptdeco.com to learn more
Kaiyo is on the east coast and will only pick up if you’re item is local to their Northern NJ location. At this time they do not charge to pick up and they will keep your item in their warehouse while they try to sell it for you. They will do all the work, so you don’t have to. You select the % of the sale you want for yourself; however, they decide the listing price. Visit kaiyo.com to learn more.
Renovation Angel is a little different. While they do accept furniture, their main focus is kitchens, appliances and bath. Yes, they will come to your house and remove your kitchen cabinets, bath vanity, etc. This is a great way to make a few extra dollars if you are renovating your home. Head to renovationangel.com to learn more.
With Letgo is a marketplace or classified site for just about anything you need to let go of. Best of all, there are no fees! You can pay to promote your item if you choose, but listing and selling is completely free. Of course, you get what you pay for… no support to ship your items and you make payment arrangements with the buyer. If you don’t mind managing your sales, then go to letgo.com to get started.
Facebook Marketplace. If you’ve never tried Facebook Marketplace, it’s worth trying out. They don’t charge a fee to list or sell, but they also don’t assist whatsoever with the payment process or shipping arrangements. It can be a little safer since you can see the buyer’s profile, but I would still only use safe practices when selling online. If you already have a Facebook account, click on the market icon to get started. Otherwise, head over to facebook.com and open an account to get started.
Offer up is more of a general marketplace similar to Facebook Marketplace or Letgo. They don’t charge to post an item, but there can be some fees if your item is shipping. They also offer a premium service to promote your listing for a fee, but this is entirely optional. They have a pretty easy to use app as well where you can post and manage your listings directly from the app. You can check them out at offerup.com.
