Selling to VHB

Are you looking to sell your Mid Century Modern furniture? Do you buy furniture? Where do you get your stuff? We get these questions every....single....day. Actually multiple times a day! Our answer is simple: YES. Unlike many stores that consign items, we buy your items outright! So you get paid when we pick up your items and don't have to wait and wait (and wait) until an item sells to be paid.

So if you are looking to sell your authentic Mid Century Modern / Scandinavian Modern furniture feel free to reach out to us.

What we need from you:

  1. Pictures: 
    • Clear, well lit, unobstructed pictures.
    • if the items extend (tables) please show the items fully extended.
    • If you have many items, just send a couple of pictures to give us a sense of the overall condition. Also if there are several items, then a list with the pictures of a couple items is beneficial.
    • If it's only a few items, then send pictures of each item.
  2. Location:
    • While we are happy to pick up items, we need a location so our professional moving service can quote us.¬†
  3. Value:
    • How much are you looking to obtain for all the items? While we will be fair with you, understand that we restore EVERYTHING. We also market, have a retail showroom, employees and expenses. So if we do not think we can make a suitable profit on your items we will decline. If we believe your asking price is too low, we will also tell you this.
  4. All or nothing?
    • Are you open to selling individual items or do you only wish to sell all of items
  5. Lighting & Accessories:
      • If on their own, these items must be delivered. We will not pick them up unless they are part of a larger estate with furniture.¬†

        Guidelines:

        • If you don't know what Mid-Century Modern furniture is, read our¬†blog¬†before contacting us:). At very least, look through our site to see if the items you have match ours. Here are a couple of examples:
        • We only buy authentic Mid-Century Modern. Generally we do not purchase items outside of the time period. There are sometimes exceptions for antiques, but they are VERY, VERY few and far between. There are also very select items from the 70's & 80's by noted designers (looking at you Mr Paul Evans) that we have an interest in.
        • We are DEFINITELY NOT¬†interested in anything made after 1990. That's what Craigslist & Kijiji are for!
        • We restore¬†every item before it goes for sale. Where required Maureen will refinish and reupholster also. What this means is a lot of time and effort goes into each piece to make it ready for our clients PLUS items go on sale.¬†
        • We will not pick up¬†vintage accessories. You must be able to deliver these items.¬†
        • PLEASE DO NOT BRING YOUR ITEMS OR PHOTOS TO THE STORE WITHOUT AUTHORIZATION TO DO SO. WE HAVE A BUSY STORE AND UNFORTUNATELY CANNOT DROP CLIENTS LOOKING TO BUY ITEMS TO LOOK AT YOUR ITEMS.
