Premier Consignment

The Smartest and Easiest Way to Buy and Sell

By Aaron Hunt, Co-owner of Premiere Consignment

Who wants to pay the full retail price when shopping, especially for furniture? Most items sold at retail stores today inherently include enormous markups, and furniture and room décor are no exceptions.  That’s why we launched Premiere Consignment. Premiere Consignment offers both buyers and sellers the perfect venue for conveniently buying and selling quality, name brand, gently used furniture, décor, Oriental and area rugs, and art at prices far below their original retail selling prices.

The sellers win because they can conveniently sell no longer used quality items resulting from a relocation, downsizing, or estate sale. Safety is another important consideration, because sellers don’t have to invite strangers into their home or sit and wait for buyers who never show up or who want to negotiate an already agreed upon price for an item. Buyers also have full access to our full-service eBay store as well.

Buyers especially appreciate our large selection, as well as our convenient showroom location and business hours. And because we accept most forms of payment, there is no need for sellers to be concerned about bad checks or handling large amounts of cash.

Homeowners, here’s a great suggestion for the upcoming holidays. Think back to how conveniently guests were able to enjoy your home last holiday season. Did a particular room appear cluttered, or was the traffic pattern or flow obstructed? Was there sufficient seating for all of your guests? Was your dining room table too large or too small? Would a buffet or sideboard have been helpful when serving meals? Reflecting on last year’s holiday events provides you with the perfect opportunity on just how to improve your home for the upcoming holiday season, allowing you to comfortably and efficiently entertain friends, family, and neighbors this Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s.

Here’s how Premiere Consignment can help. From décor to furniture, we can help you enhance every room in your home or help you find a new home for those quality items that you may no longer need. Why not let Premiere Consignment take the inconvenience out of buying and selling quality, name brand furniture, décor, Oriental rugs, and art while saving you up to 90% off full retail pricing? Premiere Consignment is simply your smartest and easiest way to buy and sell!

Update Your Home Without Busting Your Budget

Americans are discovering many innovative ways to update their homes without the added cost, inconvenience, or mess of a major renovation. By updating lighting, cabinet drawer pulls and door handles, new window treatments, and a thorough cleaning and painting, you can create that showcase look you’ve been dreaming of – without the cost.

Another way to achieve that updated look is to add a new accent chair, sofa or loveseat, dining table, art, décor, or perhaps an Oriental rug. Thanks to Premiere Consignment in nearby and convenient Tellico Village, you’ll discover many of the items that you’ve been looking for at incredible savings.

One of the most important features of being located within the heart of the Tellico Lake area is the opportunity to secure furniture, art, home décor items, and Oriental rugs from many of the area’s most luxurious homes. Also, because most of their consignors have relocated to communities such as Tellico Village and Rarity Bay from all across the country, they are able to offer you a large selection of items purchased by these same homeowners from all across the nation. Perhaps that’s why they are frequented by many of the area’s top interior designers and decorators.

Currently they have an excellent collection of dining room furniture, sofas, loveseats, and recliners. You’ll also discover Oriental rugs, lighting, home décor, art items, and florals from their very own resident floral designer.

Another feature that’s popular with both their consignors and retail customers is how quickly they are able to turn their showroom inventory. Customers appreciate it because the selection is greater, and consignors appreciate it because they don’t accept items for resale that are placed in storage indefinitely.

Whether you’re contemplating a home update or if you have some gently used name brand furniture, art, décor, or Oriental rugs you no longer use, you’ll find Premiere Consignment the perfect solution. Also, don’t forget their online store powered by eBay, where they have successfully sold many thousands of items for their customers.

Happy Fall, Y’all!   

After a very hot summer (including our recent trip to sizzling Las Vegas Market), our team is ready to kick off this season of cooling temperatures, football, and giving thanks a few weeks early this year!  We traveled across the country to find new vendors to stock our store with unique products, paying special attention to buy from other small entrepreneurs who share our values of supporting special causes and domestic suppliers.  You can still trust us to be your source of Keepers of the Light candles: We love that they employ adults with special needs to provide them financial stability, so we are expanding our line to include Papa, Mama, and Baby sizes so you can choose the perfect style for your home and gift-giving.

We also continue to rely on local farmers for our organic raw honey and private label jams. Raspberry Jalapeño remains our top-seller, and fall brings the return of seasonal favorites Apple Butter and Pumpkin Butter, Cinnamon Pear Preserves, and mulling spices for cider and wine.  During football weekends, we’ll be selling (and sampling!) Rocky Tots™ – made for Knoxville, they are the treat for tailgates, get-togethers, or a sweet gift!

For “udderly” soft skin, we have sourced beautiful, handmade goat milk soaps, lotions, and lip balms from the Windrift Hill family farm in Montana. Your skin will also “bee” it’s best with products from The Naked Bee, another natural line using organic, hypoallergenic, and pH balanced ingredients from Tennessee.

Quilling cards, hand-crafted artisan jewelry, and laugh-out-loud kitchen towels are a few more new lines guaranteed to bring a smile this season.  We look forward to seeing you in the store – especially during our Fall Open House on the 13th & 14th!
