We have over 50 years of combined experience valuing previously owned and new items. We price items after we have had an opportunity to inspect them. At that time, we will determine a price with consideration given to the original cost, age, demand, overall condition, brand name and market demand. If you have specific pricing requests, please reach out to us before.

In addition to our beautiful brick & mortar showrooms, most of our pieces are available to purchase online (Shop Online) and our customer base is throughout the entire US! Additionally, we advertise on our Acosta’s Consignment App, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and our email reach is over 20,000 customers!

We are partners with you on a 60/40 (60% to you) basis on items that sell for over $750 and on a 50/50 basis on items sold for under $749. Checks are mailed on the 22nd of each month for the previous months sold items for all amounts over $50 (final balances under $50 can be picked up in the store at any time). Direct deposit available!

Most items will sell within the first 60 days, however, if an item does not sell at the end of the 90 day consignment period you may pick up your item within 3 days of your consignment end date or it becomes property of Acosta’s Home to sell or donate at our discretion (due to the volume of consignors we partner with, we do not notify consignors when items expire).
