THERE ARE A DOZEN OR SO CONSIGNMENT ESTABLISHMENTS HERE IN SANTA FE. WHY WOULD YOU OPEN ANOTHER?
We opened ON CANYON ROAD to serve the needs of consignors and shoppers who were seeking a venue for fine art and fine furnishing exclusively. That’s what we do and it’s all we do.
YOUR LOCATION IS AWFULLY PROMINENT, BEING RIGHT AT THE INTERSECTION OF CAMINO DEL MONTE SOL AND CANYON ROAD. WHY THAT LOCATION?
It suits perfectly the image we wish to project, and it is representative of the consignments we seek and the shopping treasures that can be found.
WITH SUCH A PRESTIGIOUS LOCATION, CAN YOU AFFORD TO OFFER CONSIGNORS AN ATTRACTIVE FINANCIAL ARRANGEMENT?
The best arrangement. Our consignment options are flexible and our “60 for 60” plan pays consignors 60% of the selling price for sales in the first 60 days and 50% thereafter.
I SEE THAT YOU SPECIALIZE IN FINE ART RESALES. IS THAT UNIQUE, AND IS YOUR INVENTORY VARIED?
We are, first and foremost, a fine art brokerage and we handle all mediums, all artists, all genres, from all periods. We only handle original art, however, and our highly experienced art team is second to none.
ART INSTALLATION WOULD BE A HELPFUL SERVICE. DO YOU OFFER IT?
We sure do. Our experts can hang paintings and install 3-dimensional works to museum standards.
WHAT KIND OF FURNITURE DO YOU CONSIGN?
We are open to considering all furniture, lighting, rugs and accessories that meet our quality, size, and valuation standards. Most of our inventory consists of 18th to early 20th century selections, but we welcome quality first and foremost.
A DRAWBACK OF SOME CONSIGNMENT SHOPS IS THE CHALLENGE OF GETTING ITEMS TO THE STORE, AND GETTIING PURCHASES HOME. WHAT DO YOU OFFER?
We have a specially-equipped van and offer complimentary pickup of approved consignments. Shoppers will appreciate our timely and affordable delivery services within 50 miles of the gallery.
