What makes Unshelf Design Consignment Boutique successful? 

We sell the majority of our consigned items as part of professionally styled vignettes. These designer-styled and professionally photographed decor bundles are curated from various consigners to create complementary styling vignettes. These vignettes make interior decorating appealing for buyers, meaning your items sell for more than they would on their own.

If you’d see it on the shelves there, we’ll probably take it!
