One of the most unique aspects of Checkered Cottage is its "Recreate" area. Here customers are able to bring in their gently used and loved items to sell to others. Here's the scoop on this wonderful consignment program:
Checkered Cottage specializes in the following consignment items:
- paper crafting machines and cartridges/folders
- unopened and unused stickers
- paper pads
We will not accept:
- single sheets of paper
- stamp pads
- any product that is currently selling in the shop
The consigned price of an item will be set by management at the time of consignment. Checkered Cottage reserves the right to refuse certain merchandise.
How long will an item remain on the floor?
All items will be kept for a period of 60 days. After 30 days, items will be marked down by 50%. All unsold merchandise will be donated to charity after the end of 60 days, unless you request to pick up the unsold items. You will have 7 days to pick up the merchandise.
When can I drop off consignment items?
All merchandise can be dropped off during regular store hours. Items will be priced and ready to sell on Monday afternoons after 1:00pm. Checkered Cottage normal business hours are: Mon- Saturday: 10:00am- 5:00pm and Thursday 10:00am- 6:00pm.
When do I receive payment for an item that has sold?
