FAQ

Here are some of our frequently asked questions

How do I consign?

First off, we like to see the furniture.  You may send photos to: flamingoporch@gmail.com or bring photos by the store for us to see.  If necessary, we can come to your home to see the furniture for a small fee.  Of course, you are welcome to bring the furniture for us to see.  Everything you consign must be clean, no worn places, or out of date fabric.  If your items are not clean we do not accept them.  Why not make sure your items are in pristine condition?  You will make more money!

When may I bring my consignments in?

You are welcome to bring your items in Monday thru Friday from 10am until 4pm, or by appointment.
