How it Works

Consigned Goods

ENSEMBLE will be happy to consign only, high end gently used goods.  We take in season goods as follows:  Feb-Apr. Spring  Apr-July Summer  August-Oct. Fall  Nov-Dec Winter and Fur.  We do not accept consignments the last 2 weeks in December.  Consignments are accepted by appointment.

 

CONSIGNMENT AGREEMENT: The consignor will receive 45% of the selling price. The total length of the consignment period is 75 days. If an item is not purchased after 30 days, the item will be marked down 15%. After 60 days, the item will be marked down an additional 15%. After the 75-day period is over and the item still hasn’t been purchased, the consignor has one week to pick up unsold items or we will donate them. We are not responsible for abandoned goods. Checks for sold goods are written every two months.  February, April, June, August, October and December on or about the 15th of the month.

Ensemble donates all items to Boomerang Special Edition in Boston South End.

New Goods

The new merchandise that you are going to find in ENSEMBLE all come from charity- conscious and environmentally sound vendors. For example, Global Views is a Dallas based wholesale purveyor of furniture, decorative accessories, and lighting, which is entirely designed in house and produced by craftsmen around the world. For each order placed, a generous donation will be made to benefit Gift for Life’s sole charity partner, DIFFA: Design Industries Foundation Fighting AIDS- one of the largest funders of HIV/AIDS service and education programs in the United States. Another vendor, Calaiso, is a wicker basket weaving company whose dream is to bring the world products of timeless design, quality and durability. They seek to do this while taking care of the environment and giving back to the communities of the artisans who create them. Included with each design is a statement of authenticity attesting to the time it took to create, signed personally by the artisans who created it. These are just two of the many trendy, charitable vendors that you will find when perusing through ENSEMBLE’S unique lines.
