All of your consigning questions: answered!/

Do you take decor on consignment?
In preparation for our move to Slater in May 2023 we will no longer be accepting decor on consignment as of January 1st, 2023.
How are my items priced?
We price items in-store. Pricing is 30-60% below retail value, depending on the item and quality of the item. If there is a minimum sale price you require for item(s), an itemized list must be filled out to accompany your contract.
How long do my items stay on consignment?
We have a 90-day contract period.
Will you notify me when my items sell or when my consignment period is up?
We have thousands of consignors and items, so we ask that consignors use their consignor number to log in to view the status of their items. We also encourage you to mark your consignment period end-date in your calendars.
What happens if my items expire?
Items become property of Something Blue after 90 days. You are welcome to pick your items up anytime during the last 30 days of your contract period.
How much do I receive for my items when they sell?
You receive 40% of the selling price for items sold during your consignment period.
How do I get my payment?
We can mail your monthly check out for a $2 fee, or you can stop in to pick it up. Checks in the amount of $25 or more are available after the 15th of each month and are valid for 180 days.
I’m a current consignor and my name or address changed. What should I do?
Just give us a call and we will be happy to update your information.
I changed my mind and I really want something I consigned back. How do I get it back?
You may stop by anytime during the last 30 days of your consignment period to pick up your items. We can print an item list for you in-store showing your available consignment and you are welcome to find your item(s) to take home with you.
What if I have a question that’s not on this list?
For any other questions, send us a note at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at 515.339.7006
Are there specific items you don't accept?
