Q: How does the pricing work? What do I get?
A: The Cedar Chest will price your items, generally about 1/3 of the retail price. It will help if you know approximately how much you paid for the item and we may ask your advice regarding specialty items. Original receipts are a plus and may be needed for authenticity on some high-end designer items.
Most items are reduced after the 3rd week in stock and will continue to be reduced until sold or eventually donated/disposed of. Occasionally, we run promotions on certain items. You will receive 40% of the final sales price.
Q: What happens to any unsold items?
A: At the end of the consignment period, any unsold items become the property of The Cedar Chest and then are donated to one of our local charities.
