Smith and Co Consignments – Home is Love
“I wish you could interview my customers,” said Lisa Smith, owner of Smith & Co. Consignments. Part of that is because Lisa doesn’t enjoy being in the spotlight and part of it is her humility. She doesn’t want to be the person saying all the wonderful things about her shop, but I can attest, she hears it daily.
Beverly, the newest member of the Smith & Co. family, was a customer before she was staff. “I told Lisa when I first walked in here, this shop is just magical. There are so many beautiful things that you wouldn’t expect to find in a consignment shop. It’s more like what you’d find in an antique store. The people she surrounds herself with make a difference.”
Lisa added, “I didn’t want to be considered a thrift store and I’ve been blessed with clients who have
been part of my success. They have helped me by bringing in gently used, high caliber items for consignment.” She smiles the entire time she’s talking. In fact, that is her usual expression.
The background music is playing a modern piano version of a classic hymn. She gets so many compliments on the music, which makes her smile some more because she’s happy to feed herself and her clients with the mood set by her tunes. Her faith is what fuels her and sees her work as a ministry to the community. “I had a lady in here the other day who said the song that was playing reminded her of time she’d spent with her grandmother. She was clearly moved and we were touched, too.”
“We’re one of the few stores that will come out to your home, so we are now helping more people who are downsizing, remodeling or decorating, or dealing with a parent or loved one’s estate. I’m not trying to take over the whole estate, but I can provide options. We can purchase some things outright, or if they can be patient, I can consign it, typically getting more for it. If another shop is a better fit, I’m happy to provide recommendations. I send people wherever they need to go. I want to give them the best option for their situation.”
“We take men’s and women’s clothing and accessories along with home décor and furniture. We take consignments by appointment. We will make a house call, so give us a shout so we can talk about it first. We can deliver it to your house for a fee or you can pick it up. Just let us know how we can help and we’ll see what we can do!” Lisa said with a smile.
