We have consigned furniture to the Clearing House and got good money for it. It was way easier than putting an ad in the paper and having to deal with phone calls and appointments to see the stuff, and far preferable to selling it on Ebay and having to deal with shipping. The shop does all the work for you and they are friendly and helpful when discussing what prices to set. The shop is full of things to buy if you are more into acquiring than divesting of stuff. They are closed for a few weeks each August.
