How to Consign
Review & Price
Call for a weekday appointment to bring in items or photos, or email digital photos to: firstname.lastname@example.org or schedule a home visit for a house full of items. Consignors have the opportunity to agree to all pricing.
Sign & Sell
The Board of Trade and its consignors sign a contract. The Board of Trade carries items on consignment for a minimum of fourteen weeks, and they may stay longer if necessary. Good merchandise moves very quickly. We sell the majority of new inventory within four weeks.
Your item(s) will remain at full-price for a month, after which the price is reduced at regular intervals. Exceptions to the mark-down policy are made for truly outstanding pieces that may take a while to find the right buyer.
Checks are mailed each month for the prior month’s sales.
“Beth and her staff are up front and trustworthy. They are knowledgeable in listing, pricing and displaying my items to the best advantage. Paperwork is detailed and concise. All this results in the check I receive each month… it’s that simple!”
“I have been shopping at the Board of Trade regularly ever since I moved to the Atlanta area. I buy for both my home and my antiques business. They carry a wonderful selection of decorative items for the home at better than reasonable prices, along with a large selection of antiques and collectables. I make sure to visit once a week. They are constantly getting fresh and exciting inventory.”
“I also consign items at the Board of Trade. If I get a new piece for my home I take the old piece there. I often get what I paid and sometimes more! It is my number one place in the Atlanta area to find high quality unique home decor and antiques. The service is impeccable. The staff is knowledgeable and friendly. The location is easy to get to from just about anywhere. It is a joy to shop there. Beth the owner is a hard-working always busy lady yet accessible to all her clients.”
