Fans of Ballard Consignment will be thrilled to learn that a Bellevue store, also owned by Joey Ghioni, has recently opened. While Bellevue operates separately from the Ballard store, they are extensions of one another. Ghioni shares that his goal in Bellevue is to carry a diverse selection of Eastside-specific offerings, such as larger furniture pieces to fit the larger home size often found on this side of the lake.
The store gets inventory from furniture shows and vendors who have overfilled their storage space, as well as local individual or family consignors. For someone who is interested in consigning, simply email the store with photos of the item and expect a timely response. If Bellevue Consignment would like to bring the piece in, it will work with a moving company to transport it and carry it in-store indefinitely. If your consigned item sells, you’ll receive a check in the mail. Ghioni says the process is meant to be easy. He likes “weird and wild” items to make shopping fun, but always furniture and decor objects that are stylish and in good condition.
Customers can expect “something for everyone price-wise, and one of a kind treasures” at Bellevue Consignment, and people with a creative vision will come in and find that special piece. With complete turnover throughout the store every ten days, there is always new merchandise to peruse. You can preview some of these items on the store’s Instagram page @bellevueconsignment.
Bellevue Consignment opened in early November, and Ghioni mentions that it will be in its current location at 44 Bellevue Way NE for about two years before the building is torn down for development and he looks for another location.
