I don't know if Furniture Exchange closed up shop, or moved to new quarters. They always had some interesting pieces and reasonable prices. I made note of the consignment shops mentioned earlier, and will see if I can find them. If anyone knows of any others, please post, or send me a pm.

Was wondering if you had any success?

Sorry, just saw this now. (Wasn't ignoring you)

I'm still living with the furniture. It is nice, and works. I decided not to try to change all of it at this time.

Judy Derouin - If I had enough CA$H I'd buy it all from you. Sounds like just my style.

Every couple of years or so, I decide to redo a room (or to hubbys dismay, most of the house) and buy new stuff.

sometimes I'll sell a piece or two through craigs list, but quite honestly, I give it away locally on freecycle. I get rid of it (yay!) and someone gets it who really needs it, and may not be able to afford to purchase it. win win situation!

We've had excellent success selling items through Consigning Design. Their website is Consigning Design .

Highly recommend them.

Gosh, I wish we had the kind of money some posters seem to be spending on replacing perfectly serviceable furniture.

More power to you!

Posted in this a while ago. I had great success on Craigslist selling two couches and 8 dining room chairs. I got about 65% of what I paid for the couches and about 55% for the chairs. I didn't bother with consignment shop as they take way to much of a cut.

There is a guy named Steve that will come to your home and sell by "estate sale". I've had a couple of clients use him when they were selling whole house of furniture.

I recently sold an iphone, using some of the trading facebook pages. My daughter has purchased some furniture from those sites, as well.

Much better success with those than craigslist.

I've had great luck both buying and selling furniture on Craig's List. My neighbor just sold most of her mother's estate household furniture on Craig's List. Consignment stores take too much of a cut.

By the way, I'm SO in the market for a great new sofa! I'd love a leather sofa, one that provides great naps. :-)

My own sad story is that I'm a fairly recent cancer survivor and I can hardly bear to look at the sofa where I spent months looking forward to the end of the chemo misery. Can't just dump it cause it's the only "sitting piece" in my living room other than the chair I'm sitting in now.
