What we accept

Are you downsizing, relocating or redecorating? Do you have wonderful things in your home that you no longer need or maybe they just don’t fit in with your décor style? 

Acosta’s is the perfect place to showcase your items for others to purchase and enjoy!  We will stage, advertise, and market your items in our beautiful showrooms in order to give maximum visibility to a large number of buyers and ensure a quick and profitable sale of your goods.

Consignment furniture doesn’t mean it is heavily used and it doesn’t mean it’s old! Many of the items at Acosta’s are nearly new, brand new and some can still be found in retail stores! Acosta’s accepts quality furniture with styles that appeal to a large number of customers, please do not be offended if we are unable to accept an item- we accept based on previous experience with comparable items and never want you to go through the time and trouble of bringing an item to us if we aren’t confident that we can sell it for you.

Furniture pieces need to be pre-approved, please send photos to info@acostashome.com.

Please bring in Home decor and small accent pieces during your appointment. Here are a few tips for you for bringing in accent pieces and home decor.

  1. Please print your consignor form, fill out completely including as much information about your items as you can and bring with you to your appointment.
  2. Please drop off accent pieces and décor items to the store designated drop off area in bins, boxes or bags. (bins will not be returned)
  3. Please make sure your items are clean, in very good-excellent condition and are showroom ready.
  4. An Acosta's team member may not be able to review your items when dropped off.
  5. Due to the volume of incoming consignment items and storage limitations, you will be notified via email if you have home decor items that we are unable to consign due to condition or style issues. You will have 24 hours to claim any items that we cannot consign. After 24 hours, damaged & any un-consignable items will be automatically donated. 
  6. Processing may take up to 2-3 weeks. Consignment 90-day terms do not begin until the items are processed.
  7. If you have seasonal items to consign, bring them in as soon as possible. We display Fall & Halloween in August, Christmas starting in September and Spring/Easter starting in February.
  8. We do not have an item limit at this time.
