Who We Are - Holly Antiques has a long history of being a quality source for antiques and unique collectibles. We pride ourselves in our historic setting, pleasant, helpful and knowledgeable staff as well as the diverse offerings of our dealer/vendors.
BECOMING A CONSIGNEE – Becoming a Consignor is simple. Upon filling out the HA Consignment Contract, you will be assigned a 4 digit Consignor Number. Consignor is set up with a catalog page on which all items will be listed. Items for consignment will be vetted for acceptance, catalogued and tagged with Consignor Number, Item number, initial date of consignment, initial price, and a brief description of the item. As items are sold, they will be marked as sold on the master catalog page with date of sale, price collected and initials of HA employee.
Acceptance of merchandise – Vetting and acceptance of new consignment items takes place every Thursday and also on other business days by appointment. All merchandise must meet criteria listed below to be accepted for sell at Holly Antiques.
Commission, House Fees and Sales Tax – A Consignment fee of 25% of price charged will be charged on all cash sales / 27% on credit card sales. All necessary Sales Tax will be collected and paid by Holly Antiques.
Items will be automatically discounted 25% every 3 months up to 12 months.

A 10% discount on items priced $20.00 and over will be given to the customer upon request. This will only apply during the first 3 months of the consignment period. After that, the item(s) will be considered “sale” items and no further discount will be applied unless approved by Consignor.
Items may be removed from inventory after the initial 3 month period at no cost to the Consignor. If consignment merchandise is not sold or picked up within 1 year from the original consignment date, said items automatically expire and convert to the property of Holly Antiques.
