Divine Consign’s New and Improved Digs
The doors just opened at Divine Consign’s brand new 10,000-square-foot showroom (809 South Oak Park Ave.). The Oak Park furniture consignment shop that previously had two locations has consolidated into one big, beautiful space. And they’ve designed the new showroom to be fun and easy to navigate. For example, there is a 10-foot-high wall with glass shelves and a sliding library ladder so you can access the goodies all the way at the top. And this isn’t a you’re-on-your-own thrift store—they have on-staff interior designers to help you pick out the best items for your home. They even have an upholsterer on staff to help you with custom orders. And unlike many consignment shops, they let you return things you don’t like for up to three days after purchase. So if that orange velvet ottoman ends up not looking so good in your home, you can bring it right back for a full refund.
