Consignment is an arrangement in which goods are left in the possession of another party to sell. Typically, the consignor receives a percentage of the revenue from the sale.
OTP is the acronym for the parent company - of Things Past. Rather than having of Things Past: Living the name was abbreviated to OTP Living.
OTP Living has gone through several different exercises to differentiate itself from Of Things Past. There will be some overlap of furniture, but the main difference in furniture and styles is, OTP carries furnishings that are sturdy, functional and perhaps more appealing to everyday living.
For furniture and larger Items, all items must be approved prior to store delivery by one of the following 4 options:
  1. Form
    Complete the consignment form found on our web site, attach photos and send as much detailed information as possible about each item.
  2. Email - info@ofthingspast.com
    Attach photos and as much detailed information as possible about each item. Information required should include: size, condition, manufacturer, age and original purchase price.
  3. Mail Photos or Bring Physical Photos into our Showroom directly
    185 Bridgeland Ave, Toronto ON M6A 1Y7 Attn: Consignment Team
  4. In-Home Private Consultation
    For a large number of items, one of our team specialists will visit your home for a one-on-one consultation. Accepted items will also be preliminary priced.

For small items, such as lamps, china, crystal, accessories and artwork - an appointment is not necessary; please bring items directly to our Bridgeland location to our Consignment Office.

We have run a successful consignment showroom for over 20 years; our team of experts has the knowledge and experience required so that items can be priced accurately for our market. In addition, we also perform market research on the majority of items received. Pricing also takes into consideration the quality, condition and demand for the items. Our intention is to have items sell as quickly as possible.
There is no difference in the way furniture is priced between stores. Consignment items are priced according to our market, trends and styles. Every month prices reduce on all consignment items.
Home visits are one of the exclusive services we provide. If you have an extensive amount of furniture and large items a home visit can help to simplify the consignment process and provide the support that is often required with moving, re-decorating and downsizing. A $50.00 administrative fee will apply.

Please call or email to set up an appointment.
