Heirloom Consignment

When you walk into Heirloom Consignment at 161 Ocean St. in South Portland, you never know what you are going to find, but store owner Michelle Raymond guarantees you will be impressed with the offering.

“People that come in can expect exceptional quality merchandise at a cost less than retail. We have been in business for three years and people are still bringing great stuff in. We have things coming and going pretty much at the same speed,” said Raymond, who has 30 years experience in interior design and furniture sales.

Although it depends on the week, or even the day, there are upward of 2,000 items on the sales floor of the 4,000-square-foot store, located in the Mill Creek section of the city. Items include furniture, tables and chairs and decorative items, such as lamps, rugs, artwork and mirrors.

Raymond said once an item is accepted, she uses her background in interior decorating and furniture sales to determine an asking price. That price is reduced by 20 percent after 31 days and another 30 percent after 61 days.

Many customers come in to Heirloom Consignment looking to decorate their home, while others stop by to find unique items. As spring approaches, she said, she sees a surge in re-decorating homes in a lighter tone and people are coming in looking to furnish their camps or cottages.
