Acceptance and pricing of items to be placed on consignment is at the exclusive discretion of Threads personnel. Consignment period is for 60 days. For items sold during the consignment period, consigners will receive 50% of the sold price in cash or check for furniture and 40% for all other items. If you elect to spend your earnings in the store, we will give you an extra 10% of whatever you make to use in store credit. There will be a $12.00 yearly fee assessed for consigning in our store to help us cover the cost of preparing your items for our sales floor. Unlike many stores, we tidy, steam and press each item individually so your items look their best and, consequently, sell better and more quickly.

If the consigner would like to pick up unsold items, there is a nominal fee of $1.00/per item to retrieve the items from the sales floor. Items not picked up by the end of the consignment period will expire and become store property.

Threads reserves the right to decline any consignment for any reason. We do try to accommodate as best we can but please understand that due to limited resources we are unable to process and/or sell items that are significantly dated, dirty or wrinkled.
