ASMAA MAKING CONSIGNMENT EASY
ASMAA has now opened their superstore in Lagos specialising in high quality vintage, retro and classic items, although we will be accepting more recent items if they are of a high quality and saleable.
Now think to the last time you went on a shopping spree, you experience the thrill of the chase, the adrenaline rush of the hunt, the glow of conquest to get just that perfect piece of furniture or décor item, it does not really matter what it was at the time.
You knew that it was perfect and expected that you’ would love it forever…but one day, the novelty was gone.
Any decoration of your own home does not mean that you will not want to change it later on (could be colour scheemes, style, etc.) - just like life itself as it goes through its own changes.
The reality is that décor is not a promise happily-ever-after affair, it often just sweeps you off your feet for a few months or years. So when the love affair is over, why not bring your item to the ASMAA Treasure Chest where you can profit from your past?
Afterwards, why not visit our showroom and have fun refilling your home once again with items that really trigger your current mood or décor period. It is then the right time fall in love again with your NEW home surroundings!
ASMAA approaches all consignments with the utmost professionalism and compassion.
Whether you have a couple items or a complete estate to sell, we have the expertise and capabilities to help. We care for your items as if they were still in your home and as if they were our own.
The Process is really hassle free, easy and convenient: We do all the advertising and stage your items in our designer showroom located in the industrial area of Marateca, just outside Lagos (off the EN125). That means that you no longer have to wait for strangers to call or to come to your home to see, buy and pick your items up (or failing to pick items up and wasting your valuable time).
We accept a wide selection of furniture and accessories, such as newer pieces you would find in expensive home decor stores or timeless classics. We also accept brand name designer dressers and handbags (no knock-offs), interesting pieces of jewellery, as well as interesting vintage, retro items or classic.

FURTHER INFO ABOUT OUR CONSIGNMENT SERVICE
We accept antiques in good shape, however, we are not an antique shop and do not make any claims to knowing the market value of your piece. We price our items based on what we think the buyers will pay. If you have antiques, it is best to have them appraised by an experienced dealer.
We do NOT accept items that we cannot sell for a minimum of € 50.00.
All items must be pre-approved before we will accept them. One of our experienced team members will talk with you about what we think will sell, what might not, and discuss the selling price.
There are lots of ways to get an evaluation on your items. Choose which one best suits you.
Once you decide to consign your items with ASMAA TREASURE CHEST in Lagos, you will be given a Consignment Agreement and we will set you up with an account where you will receive 50% of the selling price.
Consigned items will be displayed for up to 80 days in the store. Payments over 50,00€ are issued monthly between the 10th and 15th of the month following the month in which your item is sold.
All proceeds of the sales that ASMAA retains will be used towards covering costs of our various social and environmental projects and campaigns. Alternatevely, you can always donate the items to ASMAA in the knowledge that it is to assist with a good cause. Either way, whether on consignment or straight donation its a good way to assist a reputable local NGO and the many causes they are involved in.
