What is Consignment? How does it work?

Consignment is the process of putting items for sale at a retail store and splitting the profits after they've sold. Since this is a secondhand store (in fact, Best in MIami; see News and Press), Las Tias offers items, on average, at 50% retail price. Your items will be beautifully displayed on the sales floor in suggestive arrangements and designs.

How are the prices of items determined?
Every item is unique. We strive to inform ourselves, as well as our customers, about designers, collections, vintage and modern furniture manufacturers to assure we find a happy medium between the value of your items and a great deal for our customers. We'll negotiate a sales price determined on retail price, condition and designer/brand. We suggest being flexible with the sale price of your items for quickest sales.

How do I get my pieces on consignment at Las Tias?

If you're interested in consigning items, please email us photos of the items as well as details about the designers or manufacturers of the pieces, period, retail price and how much you'd be interested in receiving for it. We will consider your pieces and contact you about our decision. Please remember we cannot accept any and all pieces, but only high quality, gently used vintage and designer furniture, decorative collectibles, lamps, clothes and accessories. PLEASE DO NOT BRING ITEMS TO THE STORE WITHOUT PRIOR APPROVAL.

Does Las Tias pick up items from my home?
No, we do not pick up any items from your location. After approval from Las Tias, items must be delivered to the store by the consignee or an arranged mover of your choice. If you don't have a reliable mover, one can be provided.
