If you’re interested in adding a unique, yet affordable piece of furniture to your home, where do you start?

How about a consignment shop? Even better, how about Legacies Upscale Resale, conveniently located in Hyde Park Plaza?

Find Great Furniture Deals at Consignment Stores

Consider it the ultimate in ethical purchasing. You don’t have to feel guilty about buying furniture made from exotic woods or hardwoods, because it was made years ago. There’s no need to check for sustainable sourcing or fair-trade rules.

Buying consignment is recycling. You’ll save more wood buying previously owned furniture than if you tried to recycle a whole stack of books. (And if you consign your furniture through Legacies, you’ll most likely get more for it than if you sold it at a garage sale.)

Consignment stores like Legacies will only accept items that are both in good shape and considered desirable to their customers. They know their reputation depends on delivering the quality their clients expect. At Legacies, we only offer the best of the best.

What Kind of Quality Can You Expect at Legacies?

The quality of second-hand furniture at Legacies is far above that of thrift stores. Thrift stores often accept donated items that people couldn’t sell at a garage sale; many of these items would have ended up in the trash if not for the promise of a tax write-off. On the other hand, consignment shops like Legacies are respectable retail establishments; many are offering upscale products at modest prices.

And if you ARE looking to off load some items for a tax deduction, Legacies is a 501(c)3, so acceptable donated items ARE tax deductible! Win-win!

Save Money Buying Furniture at a Legacies

You will save a lot of money buying gently-used furniture at our consignment shop. Someone else’s no-longer-needed couch or table costs a fraction of the price of a new one. Plus, the materials and craftsmanship will probably be better on the second-hand item.

You might be able to afford that luxurious dining set because it isn’t brand new. Ironically, you can often find furniture that is essentially new but at a much lower price at consignment stores. These items are typically from the people who decorate a guest room that’s never used before deciding to redecorate years later. They can’t return the furniture, and they may not want to bother with a garage sale.

Finding Antique Furniture at a Consignment Store

Consignment shops are also a great way to score antique furniture. Legacies carries tables and chairs you remember seeing at grandma’s house–that durable and stylish set you can’t find in a new furniture store.

Consignment shops are also good for finding complimentary pieces for period decor. Legacies has had several of pieces in period movies filmed in Cincinnati (including “Carol” starring Cate Blanchett).

Skip The Garage Sale

Perusing garage sales for attractive, comfortable furniture is hit or miss at best. A consignment store like Legacies will typically have as wide a selection as a furniture shop, but with far lower prices.

You won’t have to choose from the three couches available at your neighbor’s moving sale. Instead, you can check out many different types of couches and divans, selecting the size, shape and color you want. If we don’t have a good match today, come back next week after our inventory has turned over.

Service You Deserve

Legacies Upscale Resale has many extremely experienced volunteers who have worked for the organization for years. They have the knowledge and expertise to answer questions about the furniture on the floor, and you won’t feel like they are inconvenienced waiting on you.

Furniture Shopping’s a Treasure Hunt at Legacies

Shopping at a furniture consignment store like Legacies provides the greatest overall value; you’ll enjoy high-quality furniture and helpful customer service at bargain prices.
