Consignment Hacks: How to Make the Most Money Possible When Selling Furniture and Decor

If you’re trying to sell furniture and decor, consigning is the best way to go about it if:

You’re going to sell your items either way—but are tired of coordinating endless logistics for people interested in them through OfferUp, Letgo, Facebook marketplace—only for them not to show up.
