Too Good To Be Through (Posted On: Monday, January 21, 2008)

 Decrease font 
Have you ever found yourself with just too much stuff in your house?  Perhaps you have moved up full time to the area from Toronto and now you’re faced with merging two different decorating styles into one house, or maybe you’ve just bought a new house that needs new furniture and accessories and you don’t want to break the bank…because your new mortgage has already done that for you.  A visit to Too Good to be Through is what you need! TGTBT is a consignment store with a fresh, light and contemporary approach to gently used items.

This store on Balsam Street in Collingwood (across from Canadian Tire) is a great concept, very well organized and always a different experience every time you visit because the stock rotation is very swift.  Putting merchandise into the store is a breeze, especially if you already have an account with them. 

The staff is friendly, efficient and they’ve got the system nailed down.  If you think you would never buy anything second hand, think again because some of the furniture in there looks like it’s right off the showroom floor.

Here’s how it works. 

A representative of Too Good to be Through must preview merchandise prior to being displayed in our showroom.  This can be done in one of three ways:

· By providing a photograph in person or by e-mail
· By bringing merchandise into the showroom
· By appointment at your location by one of the store representatives

“We want to make buying and selling a worthwhile experience for everyone.  To ensure the greatest return on your valuables you should take the time to groom your items before hand.  TGTBT asks that your items are clean and neat to let your stuff outshine the rest. The price established remains firm for 30 days, it is then reduced by 15% and an additional 10% 30 days thereafter, after which time any unsold items must be claimed by the consignor.  Due to the volume of merchandise in the store a reminder phone call is not provided.”

Unclaimed merchandise becomes the property of TGTBT and may be given to charity. Merchandise in the showroom remains the property of the consignor until sold and may be removed at anytime.  However, while in the showroom the merchandise continues to be available for sale.
Proceeds of items sold are sent to the address provided and distributed the following month by cheque as follows:  60% to the consignor and 40% to TGTBT.  An account with a balance below $15 will not be sent a cheque, however you may pre-arrange a pick up for cash or leave the balance on your account for a future purchase.

Delivery to and from too good to be through is the responsibility of the consignor and or the purchaser.

Here’s what they take:

Garden goodies, chic chandeliers, interesting accessories, funky flatware, classic wingbacks, sumptuous sofas, groovy chairs, artsy art, stylish ottomans, contemporary cabinets, traditional tables and they will even consider the family jewels.
