DÉJÀ VU CONSIGNMENT IN THE WALLEYE - AUGUST 2016

Looking to get rid of some furniture? Need a cool new end table? Well, you may be in luck. A new consignment store has just opened in Thunder Bay that might be of help to you.

So how does it work? Basically, you bring a product in that you wish to sell and then you create a consignment agreement. If the product doesn't sell within 30 days it drops down in price, 60 days again it drops again, and at the 90 day mark, you can either donate or pick up the item.

"It can kind of be exciting for the people who are shopping because you can take the chance to wait and see if the product's price will go down or maybe it will sell," says Trish MacAlpine, owner of Déjà Vu Consignment.

MacAlpine says that she was inspired to open the store by visiting similar, small furniture consignment shops while living in Toronto and completing a diploma in interior design. She hopes that she can also intrigue local artists and furniture makers into using this avenue to sell their work.

"Our intent is to hopefully get local furniture makers and local artisans a spot to showcase their product. Their work would also be consignment, but for a very low percentage."
