Consignment

Estate & Downsizing Specialists operates the EDS Estate Tag Sale Store located at 701 S. Ransom Lane.  Some of the exceptional items Estate and Downsizing Specialists have received through its estate downsizing process are for sale to the public.  If you are looking for a place to sell furniture, household, antiques, or collectibles call us today at 812.822.2508.  We are sure to have a consignment program to meet your needs.  Commissions are based on the overall value of the consignment.  The entire process is computerized, offering inventory management of all items consigned, from start to finish.  Payments are made monthly until the items are sold.  If you have a large consignment we will send a representative out to your home to see if we can help.  We also provide convenient packing and pick-up services. This option is excellent for clients that have furnishings and other items left after a downsizing move that they need to sell. It is also another alternative to an Auction or Tag Sale.  Some Homeowners Associations or Developments do not allow Tag Sales and sometimes an auction is just not feasible. The EDS Consignment service is a great solution.

Items taken into the store on consignment are inventoried and placed on our showroom floor in the Tag Sale Store for a 120-150 Day Program. The first 30 days, items are on the floor for 100% of the sale price. The next 30 days they are marked down 25%. After that 30 days, the items are reduced 50%.  The last 30 day reduction is 75%. After that last reduction, the items have been on the showroom floor for 120 days. The client has a choice to pick up the unsold items, donate them* or place them in a final liquidation auction held monthly at the EDS Estate Tag Sale Store.

Estate and Downsizing Specialists pays their consignors after each thirty day period and provides a detailed report of what sold. The consignment percentage fee that Estate and Downsizing Specialists charges depends on the items consigned. That would be individually discussed and determined. The usual range is 35-50%. Included in that fee is handling, advertising, and the assurance that your items are on a showroom floor where shoppers can see them every day.
