Lamp ℅ Move Loot
I discovered Move Loot, an online marketplace for buying and consigning used furniture/decor, when I co-hosted an event at their pop-up space in Hayes Valley.
"At Move Loot, we believe that everyone should be able to furnish their homes and offices stylishly, affordably and sustainably. We make the process of buying and selling quality second-hand furnishings and decor easier than ever by taking all of the hassle off of the shoulders of sellers and buyers, and simplifying the experience into one easy-to-use, full-service marketplace. We pickup, store and deliver every piece of furniture that comes through our warehouse, so you don’t have to lift a finger to refresh your space. Plus, since we see every piece in person we quality check everything so that there are no surprises. We seek to create a second-hand furniture experience that is effortless and enjoyable, because everyone deserves a beautiful and comfortable space to call home."
I was absolutely ecstatic when I came across this overhanging mid-century modern floor lamp at their pop-up shop, and realized instantly that it would compliment our home's existing decor.
Since adding the lamp to our minuscule San Francisco apartment meant having to consolidate, I proceeded to consign a few pieces that no longer served a spatial purpose.
The seamlessness of buying and selling is what I think makes Move Loot's business model highly attractive to consumers and consigners.
I can honestly say, I am done bartering with strangers via Craigslist, and underselling authentic pieces at garage sales just to make a quick buck. I trust Move Loot to handle the odds and ends of the sale, without the fear of being ripped off.
Whether you're buying or selling, Move Loot's got you covered!
