New consignment shop offers cash and charity option

Considering our perpetually-bananas rental market, we're all about furnishing an apartment on a dime here in Toronto (and if we can do it with baroque sofas and cool vintage posters, all the better). A new store about to open near Orfus Rd. puts a new spin on the used-furniture concept by taking items on consignment -- and takes it a step further by letting consignors choose whether to take home the cash or to donate the whole shebang to a charity of their choice.

Elle and Eve is set to open its doors in a 10,000-square-foot space at the end of the month, stocked with vignettes of consigned pieces (from couches and lighting fixtures to artwork and knick-knacks). Their buyers carefully select pieces that are a fit; if you want to donate the proceeds from your sale, they'll even give you a tax receipt. If you'd like to check them out, they're hosting an opening bash on January 29.
