Buying FAQ



Do you offer appraisals?

We are happy to help you identify a designer, but we do not offer free appraisals. We recommend using the available online resources.



What kind of items do you buy?

We buy and sell items from the 1950s through the 1970s, including furniture, décor, barware, clothing and accessories, records, working electronics, household items, etc. The best way to find out what we buy is to look at what we sell. Stop in and check it out!



How can I sell my items to you?

There are a couple of ways to do so: You can make an appointment to come into the shop during business hours. We also make house calls if you have a large item or large quantity of goods. Call us at 515-777-0667 to schedule an appointment. Learn more.



Can I just leave the goods I'm selling at the shop outside of buying hours?

No. We don't have the storage and cannot be held responsible for items we haven't purchased. Please make an appointment.



How long can I expect a buying appointment to take?

The time it takes varies depending on how many items you have. The average appointment is around ten minutes.



Does Funky Finds consign items?

We do! Please schedule an appointment to bring your items in.

Does Funky Finds rent space to vendors?
