Buying and Selling: Does Trove Sell Furniture?
To answer the big question, yes. We do sell a lot of furniture, although we aren't a furniture store. Our vendors curate their selections by thrifting, hunting, crafting, and creating their goods. In a lot of cases, that leads to a number of excellent pieces of furniture finding their way into our store.
You might find the best end table you've ever seen hiding in one of our corners. On another day, you could grab a sectional couch from us. At any given time, there are dozens of excellent pieces from various vendors. There isn't one particular type of furniture that we deal with, though.
Our selection comes and goes and is always shifting. If you're looking for something specific, you can reach out to us and ask about it or visit the store to see for yourself.
Can I sell Furniture to Trove?
This is a pretty popular question as well. This answer is a little more complicated than the last, though.
There are a couple of ways to sell furniture at trove.Marketplace. It's important that you don't bring furniture to our store unannounced, however. Customers in the past have brought furniture to the store in hopes that we'd buy it. This is something we do not do, and that's frustrating when you've hauled a big piece of furniture all the way down to the store.
So, if you're looking to sell furniture at our store or to the vendors in our store, here's what you do:
Take a look at our furniture consignment application page. You can use the information on that page to apply to sell furniture through consignment. You'll see our rates, the distribution of the profits, and more. This is the only reliable way to sell furniture at trove.Marketplace.
If you're interested in selling particular items to our vendors, the process isn't clear-cut and there's a very small chance that it would happen. Only on rare occasions do we help customers sell items to our vendors. This only happens when the item is perfect for a particular person in the store.
Note that vendors must buy items at a lower rate than market value. Their purpose is to acquire items and sell them to make a living, and that can't happen when they acquire items and pay full price for them. If you're looking to get the best deal, it might be wise to try selling on platforms like Craigslist or Facebook Marketplace.
Their process is similar to a lot of resellers. Take a look at this example of a reseller's process for finding and selling good. Our vendors take a slightly different approach, but the ideas in this video could help to clarify things:
We hope these ideas have helped to clarify things! We look forward to seeing you in the store. Explore our site or contact us for more information about trove.Marketplace and all we do!
