Everything you need to know
What is Estate Sale 365?
Estate Sale 365 is a consignment store dedicated to the satisfaction of both our consignor’s and our customers. We only accept the finest goods in new, nearly new, or excellent used condition. Our offerings are free of cracks, chips, tears, and stains.
What are your hours?
Sales are held every other week during the following hours:
Wed-Thurs-Fri: 10:00 -4 and Sat-Sun: 11:00 - 5
How do I become a consignee?
We ask that you first send photographs of the items you would like to sell to customerservice@EstateSale365.Sale.
One picture per item will do, and we want you to provide the provenance, that is,
everything you know about the item like brand name, model, origin and any history
you have of the product like Grandma’s, bought in 1955, price paid, etc.
We use this info to set pricing and train our staff to get you the highest price.
Once we review your submission, we will respond with a suggested retail price and ask you to tell us the lowest price you can accept for the items.
What is your pricing strategy?
We strive to be competitive and research thoroughly what similar items might have sold
for in the past and what similar products are listed for elsewhere. Then we suggest our
starting price, you approve, and then we place your items on the showroom floor.
Once displayed, the clock starts. Sales are held every two weeks. The consignment
period is 90 days. Items are reduced 10% after the first two sales periods, 20% for the
3rd and 4th sales periods. 30% after the 5th and 6th sales periods, and 40% after the
7th and 8th sales periods.
After that Estate Sale 365 may discount as much as 50% without selling below the
originally agreed upon lowest acceptable price.
When an item would fall below the lowest price you will accept, we will alert you and you
will have the option of taking the item back or donating it to the charity of your choice.
Who is responsible for getting goods to the store?
You are responsible for getting your items to the showroom. We are happy to provide a list
of preferred movers. Accepted items must be brought into the showroom. We are unable to
provide labor to bring your items through the door.
What percentage do you charge?
Our standard sales commission is 50%. We do offer a lower percentage of 35%
when we sell major items over $3,000.
What is the duration of the Consignment Agreement?
The consignment period is 90 days. Unsold items must be retrieved Consignor between
the 85th day and 90th day of the consignment period with no fee or penalty.
Estate Sale 365 will contact Consignor regarding unsold items 10 days prior to the
commencement of the retrieval period.
Unsold items after the retrieval period may be picked up by the consignor or donated to
charity. If Consignor does not pick up or arrange for a charitable organization to pick up,
all unsold items will be liquidated by Estate Sale 365 after the 91st day.
For certain items we may, at our discretion, continue to display items that are especially
unique and may take longer to attract the right buyer. We are of course flexible and can
work with you.
When do I get paid?
