Caniche offers high-end consignments

By Shelley Smithssmith@salisburypost.com
Caniche has turned the old into the new by opening an upstairs fine consignment shop, which offers furniture and collectible owners the chance to sell their items.
“We offer fine furniture and high-end consignments,” said Missie Alcorn, owner of Caniche. “It’s a green thing, a recycling concept of reuse. It brings together the seller and the buyer, benefitting both.”
Caniche offers a 90-day contract to consignors, giving the consignor 60 percent of the profit and keeping 40 percent of the profit.
Alcorn will meets with potential consignors by appointment or talks with them over the phone. She accepts walk-ins Mondays and Tuesdays.
“If someone has a large amount of inventory, I’d like to come out to their home and look at it,” said Alcorn.
Alcorn is also developing a service that will go to a consignor’s home and pick up their items.
Caniche Fine Consignments offers furniture, small area rugs, books, a teen room, outdoor furniture, local art, floral arrangements and much more.
During its grand opening Friday and Saturday, items were discounted at $2 each.
The upstairs of Caniche used to host a bake shop and tea room but closed in March.
“Due to the economy, we closed it,” said Alcorn. “I have also been a designer for 20 years, and design work slowed down drastically, so I decided to do something different.
“Now, instead of buying new, I try to offer used, high-end, affordable items.”
Alcorn also offers design consultation.
Contracts are available for 90 days and can be extended for another 90 days until the item is not sold. If it is not sold in 180 days, Caniche donates it to a local charity if the consignor no longer wants it.
“We have inventory coming in at all times,” said Alcorn.
