ConsignWorks is New England's premier, full service estate and moving sale company!

     Since 2004, we have proudly served the Boston/Metro West, Central Mass, Rhode Island, and Connecticut communities. As the area's premier estate sale company, we have run hundreds of moving and estate sales, nonprofit fundraising events each year, right here in New England.  Our sales span everything from antiques to modern and contemporary furniture, decor and furnishings, average homes to the largest estates. (Our largest sale had over 2,200 attendees!)

     Why is Consignworks different? Selling furniture, home furnishings, antiques and quality items IS our business--we know our markets and buyers as well as the items we sell.  Our roots are in antiques, furniture sales, fund-raising and retail. We handle estates with antiques and collectibles as well as those with contemporary furnishings. Our own experienced, knowledgeable, and professional staff personally handle each estate sale. The professional staff of full-time and permanent part-time specialists have years of direct experience in a variety of areas, including antiques, furniture sales, appraisals,  public and charity fund-raising, retail and more, so you can be sure your items are properly identified, and your sale expertly managed. Our "bench" is deep with experience, and our sales are properly staffed, with 6 to 25 associates per sale, and with one or more cashiers and our own movers.  Employees are bonded to $30,000, and we have complete and comprehensive insurance for general liability, workmen's comp, theft, fire, damage and more. An insurance binder is always provided. 

     We design a custom online picture gallery for each sale so buyers can easily view sale items and descriptions. We accept credit cards and checks, which results in higher sales results, and our sell-through rates are typically 80-99% for each sale. Our references/testimonials are UNMATCHED, and we are highly recommended by top realtors, move managers, estate clients and buyers. 

     Our estate sale process is professional, and comprehensive, and completely transparent-from fully documented inventories and price schedules, individual invoices for each sale, fully-staged, fully tagged sales (yes, we tag almost everything), donations and furniture pickups, clean-outs and more. Pricing is fully disclosed and fully documented for clients on a material inventory schedule. Post-sale, our client's receive their check within 10 days along with the material inventory schedule. No other company provides this level of detail and transparency.

We NEVER enhance sales by bringing in other items such as jewelry or memorabilia--we are here to sell YOUR items only. We DO NOT buy-out estates at the end of the sale. We will work with our clients to identify items for optional post-sales, donations or disposal. We are A+ BBB certified in both Central MA and the Greater Boston/Metro West area. Our associates are specialists in antiques, art, china, pottery and collectibles.  

As a local company, our staff are members of  various antiques, collectibles and civic organizations and active within non-profit auction and fund-raising events in Wellesley, Wayland and metro Boston. We partner with the finest area companies and auction houses to find the right market, before the sale and after.  Sometimes, estate sales do not find the right buyer for a special item, a work of art, or fine antique, and should never be liquidated for a quick sale. We will find the right buyer or channel for you, from auction houses, on-line marketplaces, high end consignment stores, specialty shops and dealers.

Our Testimonials

We recently liquidated our large home after living there for decades. Debra and her team came in and worked tirelessly for two straight weeks; tagging, staging, re-arranging, and overall organizing. It was the most professionally handled event, beyond successful, and overall, it just made seeing your items and your life actually, FOR SALE, palatable. The check came by overnight seven days later when everything cleared, and they simply could not have been more accommodating. I have sung their praises to my real estate agent, to our neighbors, and to all our friends. An AMAZING, "caring for the customer" company. WELL DONE GANG!!!!!Cynthia Chick - Dedham, MADecember 2019
We were looking to downsize from our big house in Lexington and we found a condo in Boston that was our dream home. Suddenly we were caught up in a whirlwind of house sales and purchases that was both overwhelming, and daunting. Consignworks came to our rescue! I liked the owner, Debra, the minute I spoke with her and was not disappointed as we went through the process of selling 2/3 of the belongings we had collected in our house over 20 years while raising 2 children. Debra understood the emotional challenges of this and was a reliable, trustworthy guide through it all. I feel bad to see that old reviews from 2013 when the company was owned by someone else could be affecting the current standing of Consignworks. I encourage anyone who is looking to make a big transition like this to contact Consignworks. I can say with confidence that they will be honest, caring, and reliable stewards of your belongings and home. Thanks Debra and crew! You rock!Jonice WebbOctober 2019
We had a very unusual situation for our estate sale. As empty nesters we sold our home six years ago and had almost all of the contents in storage ever since. When we decided it was time to remove most of the contents out of storage and sell them we needed a novel solution for our estate sale. We were lucky to connect with Deb at ConsignWorks. She immediately embraced the challenge and came up with a very novel approach to stage the Estate Sale at a third party location. Although the situation was much more complex than usual Deb made it easy for my wife and myself at every step along the way. She was a pleasure to work with, always communicating well with us and solving one problem after another. Nothing seem to bother her and she went the extra mile to reduce the strain and stress on us during a challenging time in our lives. Deb is a first class human being and a very trustworthy business person. We cannot recommend her and ConsignWorks highly enough.Frank Moss - Weston, MA July 2019
Deb Bacon and her extensive team of family, friends and professionals handled our Boston estate sale in June 2019. I enjoyed every minute of the sorting, pricing and even a portion of the sales process when I returned to Boston for the last hours of the sale. Whenever a customer questioned the provenance of an item or, more often, wanted to bargain below the range of agreed-upon prices, Deb texted me for an opinion or decision. I can recommend Consignworks to anyone looking to sell a lifetime's worth of pretty good brown furniture, artwork and collectible antiques, as well as all manner of personal possessions.Grace Gregor - Boston, MA 2019June 2019
I found Debbie to be extremely helpful. I called while they were operating an estate sale to check on an antique mirror I wanted and although she was obviously busy Debbie was able to check and confirm it was available. Ultimately I hesitated too long on the price and the mirror I wanted ended up being sold to an auction house. Even though Debbie no longer had anything to gain from helping me she was able to reach out to the man running the auction house and I was able to buy the mirror from him. I am so thankful and I would definitely shop Consignworks estate sales again in the future.Ann T. - Happy ConsignWorks CustomerJune 2019
