Consign with My Cousin's Cottage!

My Cousin’s Cottage resells quality furniture, kitchen goods, and home decor.
We carry a wide selection of treasures and are always looking for
merchandise that is tasteful, practical, or just plain fun!

We focus on current, modern, and traditional styles that people use every day.  Our stock usually comes from people who are downsizing, moving, or just cleaning out closets.  Received a gift you didn’t care for, or just lost the love for a particular decorating choice?  Let My Cousin’s Cottage find new homes for your possessions.  We do the work and you reap the rewards!

Home decor, small appliances, and
everything that can be easily carried into the store

Consignments are taken in by appointment only.  Any member of the team can set up an appointment either in-store or over the phone.  If you have never been to the store, we strongly recommend that you stop in prior to your appointment, and get a feel for the type of items available for sale.

When you bring your home décor and household items to the counter, we will inspect each item as efficiently as possible while you wait.  We only accept items that are clean, in good condition, and still in demand by our customers.  Please understand that our space is limited and our customers’ preferences guide our selection process.

Furniture and large items

Furniture, artwork larger than 16”x 20”, rugs larger than 3’x5’, and bulky items must be pre-approved before you bring them to the store.  Send us an email with pictures, approximate sizes, and overall condition. We only accept items that are clean, in good condition, and still in demand by our customers.  We do not accept furniture that requires repair or reupholstery.  Please understand that our space is limited and our customers’ preferences guide our selection process.
