Village Merchants (V.M.) is your local consignment store where you agree to sell your goods in exchange for a percentage of the selling price. You have the option to receive cash, store credit, or a monthly consignment check.
We accept furniture, rugs, art, house-wares, clothing, toys, books, movies, CDs, DVDs, jewelry, kitsch, knick- knacks and more! All items must be clean and in working condition. Clothing must be in season & like new.
We are not responsible for lost, stolen or damaged goods. We do not inventory your items but we do carefully track your items when they sell.
All items sold at Village Merchants are sold ‘as is’. There are no returns or exchanges.
Same Day Drop Off
We accept same day drop offs M-Sat, 10am – 4pm of one grocery-sized bag or box. A few miscellaneous items such as large artwork, lamps, or odd sized items that won’t fit in a bag or box are welcome too. We appreciate it when you drop off your items early in the day.
Appointments are scheduled M-F 10am – 4pm. Appointments are made by phone or in person. Bring no more than three boxes or three bags in addition to a few larger items (lamps, household appliances, dining room chairs, etc).
When you have items larger than a dining room chair you need to send in a photo with dimensions for approval. Send in photos to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We price your items to sell at resale market value. Feel free to discuss special pricing issues. Occasionally we may lower or raise the price of items after closer inspection.
