Consignment Classics — a better way to buy and sell home furnishings

ENCINITAS — It’s Friday afternoon, and plenty of activity is happening inside Consignment Classics. Families, friends and couples of all ages are perusing the aisles of the showroom.

And with an expansive 20,000 square feet, there is indeed the space to hold something for everyone.

Consignment Classics has been an Encinitas staple for nearly 15 years, and it’s easy to see why. Those looking to fill their homes or even just find that perfect missing piece are likely to find what they are looking for at a price point they can afford.

In addition to their main storefront, they also have a 4000 square foot décor showroom located right across the driveway that’s filled with a constantly changing selection of unique items.

On some days, they bring in more than 500 new pieces, so you’re always sure to find something that fits your style.

Furniture for every room, from new to vintage and mid-century is just the beginning. The showroom is also adorned with rugs, sconces, art and jewelry.

Customers can, and often do, spend hours treasure hunting with friends. Items range from new to gently used, and the staff takes great care to ensure that every item is chosen and inspected carefully.

For those looking to downsize, the back of Consignment Classics is the place to go. Customers can bring their consignments in daily between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m., no appointment is necessary.

They also accept full and partial estates. If you want to save yourself a trip, you can send photos of your items for consideration to

So how does consignment work? Once your item has been accepted, you sign a contract that earns you 50% of the consigned selling price. If your item doesn’t sell after 30 days, the sale price may be discounted.

It’s a simple way to unload unneeded items without any hassle, let the staff at Consignment Classics do the work for you!

As one employee said, “Once people realize it’s here, they ask ‘why would you shop anywhere else?’”

Consignment Classics is located at 201-D S. El Camino Real in Encinitas. For more information and other San Diego locations, call (760) 635-0730 or visit
