TC Consignment shopping feels like discovering gold at the end of the rainbow.
It's a treasure hunt with many satisfied participants.
The shopkeeper earns a commission by selling clients' furniture and accessories -- some new, some not. The clients -- artisans, antiquers and homeowners who are changing decor -- recoup some of their investment in the pieces when they sell. And the savvy shopper who patiently scouts in consignment shops takes home the value-priced treasures.
