“Antiquing” and collecting has become an American past-time. Television programs like “American Pickers”, “Auction Hunters”and “Cash and Kari” give all the instruction needed for those great finds. Consignment at Dunagain’s Antiques gives one the opportunity to get your feet wet as an antique and collectible dealer. Typically a dealer scours the garage, yard, estate and tag sales looking for those things that are desirable to collectors. This is commonly referred to a picking. After a good cleaning, and a little research, the age and maker of the item can be verified. If these items can be acquired at a “good” price dealer can resell them for a profit. Consignment gives the beginner a chance to become a dealer without any commitment or cost of business start-up. Pickers bring us their “finds” and either our vendors price the item for retail or the picker will price the item. Retail pricing reflects a profit for both the picker and store. Then we provide the bookkeeping, sales person, the sales tax collection (and payment), and the space to display the item until that special person comes along and purchases it for their own collection, or to replace something long lost. Maybe you just have some things you want to get rid of. We will take single consignment items, a box full or a room full. Items should be clean and in working condition. It’s fun and profitable. Be careful because it can be addictive.
