It is with a burdened heart that I tell you Armadillo Consignment will close for business Saturday October 28th.
A recent and projected rent increase forces this very difficult decision.
Armadillo Consignment opened on August 27th, 2007. During this time we’ve consigned almost 140,000 items, supported several local charities, and most importantly have made several thousand friends and neighbors. We sincerely thank you for allowing us to be part of your community and hope you will continue to support us as we transition.
Tuesday September 5th: Last day we will accept new consignments. All store fixtures and equipment will also be for sale.
Tuesday September 12th: We will begin closing Tuesdays in addition to Mondays.
Wednesday September 13th: We will begin liquidating inventory and the following discount schedule will apply:
September 13th – 24th (30%)
September 27th – October 8th (40%)
October 11th – October 28th (50%)
If you do not wish to have these discounts applied to your consignment you must retrieve it by Sunday September 10th.
You will continue to receive 50% of any sales unless other arrangements have previously been made.
If you’ve consigned an item with us that has a beginning value of $300.00 or more we will give you 80% of the final sales price if it sells at the 50% discount.
Saturday October 28th: All contracts will end at the close of business on Saturday October 28th. All items that remain thereafter become the property of Armadillo Consignment. We will sell, donate or dispose of it without explanation, reimbursement, or benefit to you.
Checks for sales that occur between October 1st – 28th will be processed as usual and mailed on November 7th.
Undoubtedly there will be questions and special circumstances that will need to be addressed. Rest assured that we’ll approach them in our usual manner and make reasonable accommodations where we can.
Again, we truly appreciate the relationship we’ve established with you and thank you for your patience as we transition. I will remain in touch with you and make sure you know our individual plans for the future.

Erick writes “This night stand once lived in a Seattle hotel, but now it’s helping bring a bit more order to my family’s bedside reading (often I find my tweenage boys claiming my side of the bed for reading breaks). It’s not the sexiest picture, but it’s honest and I’m grateful to not have to reach down to the floor to nab a book anymore. Thanks, Wayne!”

The Saturday sale was outrageously fun. You should have seen was $6.00 – $10.00 bought!
If you missed it …you’ll have this week to shop by the pound for $1.50 then Saturday it’ll be $1.00 per pound – then it’s gone.
It’s Saturday 10 – 2 ….
Many of the items are still new in their packages. Some things we moved inside so you could take advantage of our air conditioning.
Then we’re promised several really nice consignments, one featuring predominately mid century furniture.
We expect them towards the end of the week, and we’re pretty busy right now so it won’t be priced, but it should be by early next week.
This Saturday … Next Saturday …
1.50 per pound for sundries, tools office, home …
Deep discounts on many other items … Some furniture
15% off your in store purchases ….

August 27th, will mark our tenth year anniversary. We can scarce believe it … and we thank you for your continued support.
As we’ve been considering how to celebrate the occasion (which we usually do in November) we thought about the thousands of customers and sales we’ve made over the years.
Here is where you and more importantly your story come in.
We know many of you are loyal shoppers and in fact you’ve furnished your homes, filled your closets or carry a handbag (or two) we’ve sold you. We’re pretty proud of that and we’re hoping you’ll want to share your story about them.
Send us at least two photos of anything you’ve purchased from us along with a brief summary of your experience with us. Talk about how your’e putting it to use, maybe what your friends and family have had to say about it or just talk about how it fits into your life.
We’ll feature your story on our blog and in addition all submissions will be entered into a drawing for a $100.00 gift certificate which we’ll raffle off at our annual anniversary party in November.
We’ll identify you by your first name only, no other personal information will be shared and we reserve the right to make minor grammatical edits.
This is a project we’re really excited about and we hope you’ll join us in what we hope will be a lot of fun!
