Consignments

Are you contemplating changing scales or a new layout? Do you want to clear out your closet of all the unneeded kits, engines, cars, etc.? Selling part of an estate? Why not let us sell them for you at our store?

What Is Our Consignment Service?

Consignment items are products offered for sale by individuals, however the actual product is in our store. All consignment items are subject to prior sales, and in most cases we only have one of those items on hand. Prices are typically set by the person offering the item for sale, with possible input from store management. If the individual is flexible about the asking price, we will indicate so by stating "make offer" in the product's description.

Papa Ben's charges a reasonable percentage of the final sale price for offering this service. In addition to making space in the store, we also (typically) photograph the items and post them here on this web site. This expands the possible audience, leading to a greater chance of the item being sold and sold quickly. Call us, or come by the store for more details.
