Around My House Consignment


Around My House Consignment Port Moody

Reduce – reuse – recycle applies to kitting out your house here too in the Tri Cities. Around My House Consignment on St. Johns Street in Port Moody has been relocating gently loved house treasures for more than fifteen years now, helping home decoration enthusiasts find new-to-you home décor items with that eco touch.

The store is situated on a bright and sunny corner in Port Moody’s old town centre. It is a compact showroom brimming with an ever-changing stock of home furnishings. Inventory changes regularly, and price reductions keep customers coming back for that one-of-a-kind bargain. Turnover is rapid – this is a store you need to stop by often. The store holds items ranging from dining tables to side tables, armchairs, benches and telephone tables, and an eclectic selection of fine china and accessories for the house.

As with most consignment stores, you may not find the exact object on your list that you are looking for, but in browsing, you are sure to see furniture and decor items that will give your home an instant update. It is a great place to discover unusual décor items – on one visit, I came away with a cute collection of Dansk figurines for my windowsill. I’ve also missed out on a unique Chinese red lacquer drawer set and a chaise longue, much to my disappointment.

Around My House also accepts items for consignment, giving a sliding rate for payments back to the owner. Items must fit certain criteria, not be too large, and be in good condition. Damaged or scratched items are not welcome and check for mustiness, insects and grease before consigning. As with most consignment businesses, you need to make an appointment to evaluate your pieces before they can be accepted.

One of the attractive features for shoppers is that inventory changes so often at Around My House. The shop gives a 60-day sale period for consigned items before returning them to their owners or sending them to charity. For the shopper, this means that there is always something new to see. You can also check ahead by keeping an eye on the gallery pages on the website, or by subscribing to the Around My House Facebook page, which is updated regularly with photographs of new stock to tempt you into visiting.

The key to consignment or thrift shopping is visit often, visit regularly. There’s ample parking outside on the street, so visiting the clean and well-organised showroom is a pleasure. Here’s to a giving your home a mini makeover this summer!
