It’s New To Me
It’s New To Me is Austin’s freight furniture store target. They entrust or buy funky, fun, and elegant gently used furniture. They carry top brands, accessories, and art displayed across their 10,000 square foot showroom. It’s New To Me dated in Austin since 1988. They enjoy their customers stopping by weekly due to their consignment pieces changing so fast. It actually is a new experience whenever you walk in the door.
Make your next dream space with consignment. Mid-century modern, traditional, modern, high-end to affordable pieces, they carry it all. Consignment is a clever, simple way to sell your furniture. Their agent appraises your furniture, you agree on a fair market price and they display it in their showroom. Once it sells, they issue you a check the following month for your agreed-upon share.
Buy & Sell
“I’m a designer who was furnishing an apartment for a client. I needed to canvas a lot of stores quickly and during Covid. Jay and his team went out of their way to photograph items that fit my descriptions so I could go and quickly view and choose. Yes to furniture, but also go for the art! Frames might not be in perfect condition, but close enough at these prices, and for art, you’ll do far better to have than big-box mass production. They helped load small items into our vehicles and waited for movers to take the larger pieces. Definitely recommend.” – Katrina S.
DoubleTake ATX volunteers care greatly about supporting children as they heal from trauma and helping hinder child abuse through awareness and education. They work to support the Center for Child Protection, a nationally accredited children’s advocacy center, and the only nonprofit in Travis County involved in the investigation and prosecution of crimes against children.
They are now open to the public at a limited capacity Wednesdays – Sundays from noon – 5 pm. They update and promote their in-store sales via email, social media, and here on their website.
