Kelly Hensley is the owner of Leftovers consignment store in San Francisco. She works with over 5,000 consigners and currently has a wait list for consignment, which she attributes in part to her prime location at the epicenter of Russian Hill, Nob Hill, and other upscale San Francisco neighborhoods.
Consignors leave their goods at her store for sixty days, after which they can either reclaim what hasn’t sold or donate it. All proceeds are split 50/50 between the consignor and the shop. The constant flow of new and unique goods gives the store a different energy from a big box store that can be counted on to have the same types of furnishings indefinitely.
