Items We Consign

Are you downsizing, relocating or redecorating? Do you have wonderful things in your home that you no longer utilize or that fit into your home’s current design scheme?  Acosta’s Home Consignment has 2 amazing showrooms to display your items.  We will stage, advertise and market your items in our locations in order to give maximum visibility to a large number of buyers and ensure a quick and profitable sale of your goods.

More information on consigning

After wading through several other consignment shops, thrift stores, and home decor shops, Acosta's delivered exactly the experience we had been seeking out. This is the perfect place to find quality, higher end pieces at affordable prices. The shop has a wide assortment of styling. Our expedition was to locate french/southern style decor, and we walked out with several pieces to fit out home. They also had some fun seasonal decor. The furniture pieces are worth consideration. We saw complete bedroom sets for $1000, beautiful dining sets, and several couches in exceptional condition.

Acosta's Batavia is pretty much amazing. The large store is filled to the rim with high quality home furnishings and decorator items. The store is subdivided into several "rooms" with similarly styled items. Everything from couches and recliners to candlesticks and chandeliers, this place has it all. When you first walk in, the whole place seems quite overwhelming. As you carry yourself through, this feeling only increases. The rooms are numbered (luckily) as to easily direct the staff to the merchandise of interest to you. Or, for your own reference to find those items again. The prices are reasonable, although a bit higher on many things due strictly to the high end nature of their items. We were able to find several pieces with very reasonable tags attached, and we love each of them in our home. You can find the usual to the unique here, preclusive of shrunken heads or old quackery equipment. The staff was very fun and helpful, and we plan to make this our "go to" store for items of this type.

Kathy

Hold on to an item you like if you plan to browse around some more or have an associate hold and mark it for you. We lost 2 items to another customer by a matter of minutes only. They have lots of gorgeous items. Have fun and good luck.

Ginger

Consigned a sofa with them, was a great experience. Love this place as a shopper as well, adorably decorated and well organized store.

Alex

Have bought many items from Acosta. Always satisfied with everything. Had an emergency family illness and requested pictures of item bought but not yet picked up. Within hours they sent pictures to my cell to be shown to ill family member. That kind of consideration is rare. Not knowing us, the owners treated us like we were valuable customers. Shop online or at one of the three stores. Try Acosta once and you'll go back.
