The Benefits of Shopping at Consignment Stores for Jewelry

You’ve probably heard about the benefits of shopping at consignment stores for clothes. You enjoy a wide selection of clothes across the price spectrum. Sometimes you can find luxury branded clothes still in the plastic that the person couldn’t return for a refund for a variety of reasons. You have your pick of gently used jeans and T-shirts for a fraction of the price of a new version. What many Cincinnati residents don’t realize is that the same is true for jewelry at consignment stores. That’s right! You can find beautiful, gently used pieces of jewelry, at significant savings, right here in Cincinnati – at Legacies Upscale Resale in the Hyde Park Plaza!

So why shop at a consignment store for jewelry?

The Cost Savings of Consignment Stores

The greatest benefit of shopping at a consignment store like Legacies is the cost savings. Pre-owned, high quality jewelry is typically sold for a third to half the price of new jewelry. And if you’re looking at costume jewelry, you could pick it up for a fraction of the cost of a brand new replacement.

Choose Consignment Stores Over Pawn Shops For Jewelry

Consignment shops are typically a better deal than what you’ll find in the gold and silver section of the local pawnshop for several reasons. One reason is that at a quality Consignment store like Legacies Upscale Resale, the sterling silver, diamond, and gold jewelry items for sale are readily available to you, without being pressured into spending more money on “the good items” or “the items in the back”. You can see everything out in the open without any pressured sales tactics. At Legacies, we have several large glass cases filled with terrific jewelry for you to view – we’ll gladly help you with any of the items you want to hold and try on.

Note that if you sell jewelry through a consignment shop, especially gold, silver and diamond pieces, you’ll receive far more for the jewelry than if you shipped it to one of those mail-in places notorious for paying five to ten percent the real value of the precious metals.

The Wide Selection Of Consigned Jewelry

One of the best reasons to visit a consignment shop is for the wide selection. Most conventional jewelry stores offer classic designs that never go out of style and the latest styles. That’s it. Consignment shops like Legacies have a wide selection - from the nearly new items that the former owner is selling because the return window has passed, to antique jewelry being sold to liquidate an estate. You’ll also likely be able to find vintage jewelry at a consignment store -- whether you want specific items to impress at special events, or just to increase your collection of items within that style you used to love but can’t find anywhere else.

The Good Customer Service

There’s no doubt you’ll get great customer service at a name brand jeweler. Then again, they’re charging a literal fortune for their engagement and wedding rings, necklaces, broaches, etc., due to the higher costs of the brand new pieces. The brand name jeweler has to market heavily to that crowd, too. Compare this to your local Cincinnati consignment shop that is appealing to people with all types of budgets. Consignment shops don’t have to pay for fancy ads, and this lowers their overhead costs significantly, allowing them to sell items for less, and move the product off the show room floor since new products are coming in daily. This is a great deal for all!

It also results in better customer service. After all, that couple that bought an engagement and wedding ring from them is at best going to refer another newly engaged couple to them. The smart jewelry shopper will probably come back again and again to buy desired items at a bargain, and they may sell items back through the consignment shop as well. That’s aside from their ability to refer new clients to the business. Consignment shops with an extensive jewelry collection has to offer excellent customer service if they want to remain in business. Legacies has been in business and selling consigned jewelry for over 25 years with many many repeat customers!

Oh, the Treasures You’ll Find! Scoring Furniture Deals at Upscale Consignment Shops

If you’re looking for high quality, brand name furniture at great prices, you might want to start your treasure hunt at one of Cincinnati’s best upscale consignment shops.

The consignment concept is simple: consignors bring gently used furniture, antiques, home accessories, and jewelry to a shop; the shop sells the items; then the shop and consignor split the proceeds. Everyone wins, especially you—the shopper—because items are priced to move quickly.

Cincinnati Consignment Store Funding Hope

At the Legacies resale consignment shop in Hyde Park Plaza, there’s another winner: the Cancer Support Community of Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky (CSC). Our large store is run by over 100 volunteers, and all profits go to FREE programs that support families facing the challenge of cancer. For over 25 years, CSC has been enhancing the lives of people in the local community by offering free non-medical support and services to improve quality of life and survivorship.

Six benefits of upscale consignment furniture shopping

  1. Yesterday’s craftsmanship. As the saying goes, “They don’t make ‘em like they used to.” This maxim could have been written for furniture. You can find gems at Cincinnati consignment shops made when furniture was crafted with materials and skills that are in short supply today. Where you do find pieces with excellent quality--like at small “studio” shops--the prices far exceed ours.
  2. High-end merchandise. When you shop at upscale consignment shops, the furniture sold on consignment is higher-end. Because customers expect the best from us, we are very particular about the furniture we put on the floor. You’ll find beautiful, unique and rare conversation-starters for your home--in great condition--not available anywhere else.
  3. Delightful prices. The consignment business model allows us to offer lower prices than typical retail furniture stores. Consignors want their “babies” (items they love but can’t use anymore) to find good new homes, so they are usually open to friendly pricing.
  4. At consignment shops in Cincinnati, merchandise changes often; at Legacies, we change it daily! Every time you stop by, there will be exciting new home furnishings we just acquired.
  5. A special shopping experience. There’s no rush or pressure when buying furniture at upscale consignment shops, particularly at Legacies. Our volunteer sales associates love learning about customers’ needs, and helping you find that treasure you only dreamed existed in Cincinnati.
  6. The chance to make a difference. Buying from a consignment shop is good for the environment, because you are saving perfectly good furniture from the landfill. And, because we exist solely to raise funds for CSC, every penny you spend at Legacies makes a difference to someone affected by cancer. Your purchases fund professionally led support groups, educational workshops, and healthy lifestyle classes that compliment conventional medical care.

When you want something special, ordinary furniture stores can be a disappointment. They don’t have what you want, the quality is poor, or the prices are ridiculous. For a more rewarding shopping experience, where the variety, quality and prices often exceed expectations, try one of Cincinnati’s upscale consignment shops.

Kitchen Memories – The Food, The Smells Take You Back

Legacies’ Kitchenware Promotion begins, Tuesday, March 5th

Sometimes, seeing dishes similar to what your mom or grandma used also conjure memories. How many of you, like me, remember pastel colored, Pyrex mixing bowls – they were white inside. I remember my mom had an aqua one in which chocolate cookie batter was mixed. In a smaller pink one, heavy cream was whipped to top pecan pie. Every time one of the bowls comes into Legacies, I’m back in the kitchen in the house I grew up in.

My sister has those bowls now. She’s added others she got from her mother-in-law. Her children – now all young adults and setting up first apartments of their own – have seen her use them when their family gets together for celebrations. Their memories may be of macaroni or potato salad being mixed in them, but they’re as warm and wonderful as mine.

Corelle plates, Cincinnati Reds glasses, tumblers nestled in rattan “cozies” – what triggers memories for you? What will your children remember from your time together in the kitchen?

Legacies Book Review gift basket

Legacies Book Review: Whiskey in a Teacup

Whiskey in a Teacup

A new book by Reese Witherspoon that we really love!

Published by Touchstone, an imprint of Simon Schuster.

Although the title refers to a description of southern women, we like it as a suggestion. The book contains family stories, photos and recipes and would make a great hostess gift.

“Those old Nashville homes are usually decorated with furniture from several different eras, as well as lots of heirlooms, such as oil paintings of ancestors and antique rugs”. The description on page 35 sounds like a Legacies home to us!

Stop in to Legacies and take a chance on our Whiskey in a Teacup gift basket. Along with sweet teacups and an adorable teapot, the gift basket includes tea, candy and the book, of course. With each purchase of a single tea cup you receive one entry. Entries can also be purchased for $1. Good luck!
