She threaded her way through a showroom full of show-stopping furniture with nary a glance and came to a stop in front of the service desk in Hanover. Not even the super-cool Chesterfield sofa in a stunning peacock blue with pewter nailhead trim caught her eye. She was, in a word, focused.

Late February and early March – depending on the weather – are the start of the peak selling season for housing in and around Boston. Warmer weather and longer daylight are factors. And many homeowners want their families settled in a new home before the start of school in September.
At FCG, we know how closely the furniture consignment market follows the housing market. By mid-February, inquiries about furniture consignment start to soar. In fact, FCG could probably predict the strength of the market based on those inquiries. Long before local realtors get a call, we often know which homes will be going up for sale.
This spring looks like a doozy. Already, we’re getting a flood of gorgeous new pre-owned furniture into our stores. This is the start of the fun season at FCG. Everyday, our trucks bring stunning new pieces into all three of our stores in Hanover, Natick and Plymouth.
