    Cleaning and Caring for Fine Jewelry

    Last updated 1 year ago

    Fine jewelry is an investment as well as a personal decoration, so it should be properly cared for to make sure it lasts a long time. Watch this video for tips on how to clean and care for your fine jewelry.

    Jewelry you are not wearing should be kept in a partitioned jewelry box or in individual bags within a jewelry box to make sure it is not exposed to moisture and dust. You may want to get a safe to store your irreplaceable and most sentimental pieces. To clean your jewelry, wash it gently with soap and warm water, and take it to your jeweler every six months to have it professionally cleaned.

    With the tips you learn in this video, your fine jewelry from the Home Consignment Center will remain beautiful and sparkling for years to come. Contact us at (925) 838-0113 to learn about the current jewelry inventory in our Bay Area stores.

    What To Look for in a Dining Room Table

    Last updated 1 year ago

    With current design trends emphasizing usability over formality, dining rooms are experiencing a resurgence in use. Dining rooms can be used for family dinner on a nightly basis and then spruced up when you are entertaining guests. Choosing a dining room table for everyday use as well as special occasions requires a little bit of planning, so consider the following advice before you shop for new dining room furniture.


    There are many different styles of furniture ranging from classic to mid-century to contemporary and minimalist. When you shop for a new dining room table at a consignment store, consider how different tables will work with your existing decorating style. If you aren’t looking to revamp your entire dining room, look for tables that will complement the color and style of your wallpaper, decorations, and other furniture. You might go with a lighthearted cottage table if your design tastes tend to be on the breezy side, or look for a classic table if you prefer your dining room to be more formal.


    Dining room tables come in a variety of shapes including round, oval, square, and rectangular. Before you head to the consignment shop to look for a new table, assess your dining room to decide which shape will work best. Rectangular shapes are a little more formal than round shapes, but you may be able to fit more people at a circular or oval table.


    It is essential to measure your dining room to make sure you don’t fall in love with a dining room table that just won’t fit! Bring your measurements to your consignment store to ensure that you take home a table that works in the space you have. You may also want to look for tables with leaves that can expand when you have more people over for dinner.

    The Home Consignment Center carries an ever-changing inventory of dining room tables so you are sure to find one that fits your needs. Call us at (925) 838-0113 to find out more. You can also visit one of our five Bay Area stores to learn about buying consignment furniture.

    What to Consider When Purchasing New Furniture

    Last updated 1 year ago

    Furniture is one of the most important purchases you make for your home. Without the right furniture, your home could end up uncomfortable and visually unappealing. If you want to buy furniture that lasts, you have to know how to shop. Use this guide to simplify the furniture-buying process so you can go home with pieces you love:

    Think About Sizes

    Buying an oversized couch for a small living space is not a smart idea. When you shop for furniture, you want to find pieces that complement your living space. Take measurements of your old furniture and your home before you do anything else. This way, you can narrow down your selection at the furniture store and only look at pieces that will work in your interior.

    Think About Style

    When you purchase new furniture, you have an opportunity to incorporate a new décor into your home or enhance the one you already have. If you want to start over with your interior design, shop for pieces that really catch your eye and serve as a foundation for a new interior design. If you want to keep the current décor, however, you should find furniture that seamlessly fits into your space.

    Think About Your Wants

    Take your time when shopping for furniture so you can find a piece that meets all of your needs. If you are looking for a coffee table with extra storage space, for example, you should not settle on a piece that does not offer it. You do not have to buy the first piece you see; wait until you find the piece that you actually want.

    Home Consignment Center is always getting a new selection of great consignment furniture and accessories that can enhance your décor. We want you to have the selection you need to find the furnishings you actually want. To learn more, visit us online or call (925) 838-0113.

    The Latest Dining Room Decorating Trends

    Last updated 1 year ago

    As one of the primary centers for entertaining in the home, the dining room should offer aesthetic appeal, comfort, and convenience. The latest decorating trends offer all of this and more. Consider adding some of the following to your dining room décor to make the most of your space:

    Focus on the Lighting

    Light fixtures are great accessories for a dining room, and can help you create a certain mood. Find a unique light fixture that adds some visual stimulation to the space and helps you walk the line between formal and casual dining. This decorative addition will draw even more attention to your beautiful dining table.

    Mix and Match

    You do not have to have a table with matching chairs to create a beautiful and functional dining area. Try to find a few different styles that come together to create a cohesive look. Shopping at the consignment furniture store is a great way to find unique pieces that you can mix and match to create a style that represents your personality. Buy furniture and accessories that you like and figure out how to combine them when you get home.

    Bring the Glamour

    A glamorous accessory brings just the right amount of pizzazz to an otherwise casual dining space. Whether you find the perfect chandelier or an elegant hutch, these stylish additions bring a unique element to the space that enhances all of your other design choices. One or two glamorous pieces can serve as the finishing touches for your new dining room design.
