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, 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 as well as our own movers.  Employees are bonded, and we have complete and comprehensive insurance for general liability, E&O, worker's comp, theft, fire, damage and more. An insurance binder is always provided. 

     We design a custom online picture gallery of exceptional quality for each sale so buyers can easily view sale items and descriptions. We advertise your sale far and wide utilizing several aggregators as well as all sorts of social media. Our long history of running phenomenal estate sales has earned us a deep mailing list of buyers who will help to empty your home! We accept credit cards as well as cash 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 material inventories and price schedules, 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 also provide online estate sales for those clients that for a number of reasons, cannot, or do not want to conduct a traditional estate sale. 

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

Hi Deb.
I’m so proud of the job you did on my behalf.
****** If I only had stars on my IPad
Thank you for your professionalism and the integrity which you displayed during the estate sale at a a very difficult period of time.
With kindest regards

Larry G.April 2020
Debra Bacon of ConsignWorks, Inc. was outstanding to work with! She and her staff are extremely professional, kind, experienced, and take care of everything from researching items even if you don't have receipts, set up, organize, clean up; they are extremely trustworthy and willing to help you in any way you need.
We had a sale a few weeks after we moved out of the house and they FaceTimed to go over every inch, kept us abreast of everything they were doing; provided an inventory list; called if offer price was different; and even helped connect us with options for the very few items and furniture that did not sell.
We can't say enough! We absolutely recommend Debra Bacon and her company!

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
