Ann Hope's Corner by Peter Rabbit Consignment
I LOVE THIS STORE! First, it is HUGE! I am not used to a consignment store having this much selection to pick from and the inventory is always changing!Second, helpful and friendly staff! I can always find someone willing to help me. No matter if I am bring in from my car or have a question about something in the store. Third, prices are very good! I am also very pleased with my amount I get for my items. I am used to doing larger consignment sells but they are just to much work! I do not do yard sales cause people just upset me. I would rather put it in the yard for free cause that is what people want. If you consign... I will say that it takes a few months to get a good amount but it is well worth the wait! Try this store out! It is just AWESOME!

A Junkin Ginger Consignment
A warehouse full of surprises for those who want furnishings that are unique and hand-crafted. The owners are helpful and offer delivery in some instances. I have left items on consignment with them. There is a beauty salon at the front of the warehouse. Beyond it, stretches room after room of interesting and charming items. Well worth an afternoon stroll. Bring your cards & cash! I am sure you will find something to love and adopt to take home.
Tips & Advices
If there is ever a dispute regarding payment over the course of the project, a contractor or subcontractor could place a payment claim, or lien, on your property. To avoid this, ask the contractor to sign a lien release, which is a legal agreement that states that any payment accepted is final. This can come in handy if a contractor has his or her own payment issues with their subcontractors. Signing a lien release form certifies that any payment made by a client to the contractor is enough to pay for any goods or services rendered.
Absolutely ask. Paying too much up front offers the homeowner minimal leverage if the quality of work does not meet expectations or contractual specifications. Try to establish a reasonable pay schedule, such as paying 10 percent of the total cost for each 10 percent of the work that is completed. Include this payment plan in the contract, as well.
Before any money changes hands, there should be a contract to sign. Make sure the specifics of the work and all costs are listed in the contract, including details. If you forget to have something included in the contract after signing it, there's rarely a chance of recourse.
Ask the contractor for proof of their certification before signing anything, as well as their proof of insurance. You should also check your homeowners insurance policy to see if they offer coverage for contracted work. You may want to call your insurance provider and ask for more details on what your plan will and won't cover.
Yes. Plans for how the work site will be cleaned at the end of each day as well as at the conclusion of work need to be put in writing. An experienced general contractor should make every effort to keep the workspace clean and prevent dirtying or damaging any other area. Even so, talk with the contractor about the daily schedule, the logistics of transporting workers and equipment, and how cleanup will be handled.
