Any balance below $50 can roll over to the next month or we can process a cash payout at register on the 5th of each month for your previous month’s sales. Consignors may use their account credit on store purchases anytime during the month.

Why consign at Fabulous Finds? We have been in business since 2008 and, on average, sell 85% of incoming items in the first 35 days.

What are your best sellers? Accessories are always the best sellers: Jewelry, purses, blouses, jackets and shoes.

What is NOT selling?

Why are so many items in your store new with the original tags? This is a great part about shopping at a consignment store, even if you don’t like to shop gently used. Over 30% of our inventory comes to us new with the original tags because women tend to purchase items (sometimes multiples) and then forget to return them or we decide later that it’s not the look we are going for. If you are looking for a gift that still has tags, consignment is a great way to go.

Do you only accept designer items? The better sellers come from the department stores to the boutiques. Main stream labels like Chico’s, Ann Taylor, Banana Republic, Talbots, Express, etc. are what sell best for us and what we have the biggest demand for. Of course we love our LV, Prada and Fendi items too. See a list of the items we accept in our Designer Brands list.

Why can I not pick up my unsold items at the end of the consignment period? Any item that we price at $29 or more, if it doesn’t sell you are more than welcome to pick it up. But due to high volume we do not offer pick ups on your unsold items priced under $29. Any item that does not sell will be donated to charity and you will receive a tax donation slip. We have found this method to be easier for everyone involved and not a problem since most items sell within the 60 day period.

Who do you donate the items to? We donate to Next Step Ministries who do great work with domestic violence awareness and serve women and children in the Triad area.

Do you handle estates for loved ones who have passed? How does it work? Yes, we have a quite a bit of experience in handling estates and understand that this is a difficult period of your life and we promise to handle with care. We offer a couple of different options for estates: cash or consignment and would be happy to set up an appointment to look over your items. Furniture is a popular seller at auctions and estate sales but clothing and accessories are a much harder sell, this is where we come in. We make it simple and fast. A well trained associate will come out and take about an hour of your time, view the items and discuss your options with you.

If you would like to set up an appointment to do this please email us at shopatfabulousfinds@gmail.com and in the subject line write ESTATE. Thank you for allowing us the opportunity to help you in this time of grief.

Do you offer home pick up service? Yes! With so much going on in our lives now a days, we understand your time is precious and sometimes we need an extra hand. We offer home pick up services for Triad area clients who:

  • Have a loved one who has passed away and needs a gentle hand to handle it.
  • Have at least 100+ pieces they need to consign or sell.
  • Have at least 50+ designer pieces they need to consign or sell.
