Antiques consignment arrives at Jefferson Street Market

by Mary Tutwiler

If great Aunt Clotile’s treasured prie dieu somehow doesn’t fit into your Ikea decor, there’s a new way in town to offer it for sale to discerning antiques lovers. Revival Fine Consignments, a business owned by entrepreneur Brett Huval, has opened up under the umbrella of Jefferson Street Market. The big back room at the market is now filled with high end antiques, which are priced on a rolling timeline: full price for the first 30 days, reduced 20 percent for the second month, and discounted 40 percent for the third month they are on the floor. There’s some really nice pieces like an 1850s parquet top dining table with four chairs or a pretty little French marble top chest. Jefferson Street Market owner Rob Robison says the consignment concept has begun to take off. “Lots of people have antiques they want to move,” says Robison, “and the pieces have been selling very well.”
