CONSIGNMENT MARKDOWN SCHEDULE:
Consignment items are on a 90 day contract and are marked down every 30 days until the contract has expired. For example if an item arrives at Colleen’s on 8/1/14 on Consignment – It will be marked down 20% on 9/1/14 and 50% on 10/1/14. When the 90 day contract is up, if the item has not sold, the consignor can either pick up their unsold items or we can donate them to a local non-profit.
NEW GOODS MARKDOWN SCHEDULE:
New goods are also on markdown schedule.

Tip # 6: Market Season
The World Market Center has 2 shows per year. A winter one in January and a Summer one in July. We get a lot of our new goods around when the World Market Center shows are as the furniture suppliers are clearing out their showrooms to make way for new samples. Look for a heavy influx of new goods right before and right after both the winter and the summer shows.
Next Show: July 28 – August 2 ,2018
