Whether you are downsizing, redecorating, looking for that perfect piece or even a special gift, Revive Us Again is the place to shop this season!
In March of this year, Michael and Vickie White opened Revive Us Again Furniture Consignment in Jasper. With his 45-years in retail and hers with Georgia Marble, drapery-making, and retail—and their own passion for shopping consignment, they wanted to do something fun before they retire. Their experience and interests blended into the idea for creating happy customers.
Vickie tells it this way, “After much research, prayer and a few sleepless nights we did it. We opened our store in downtown Jasper, in the former Jasper Jeep/Burnt Mountain Trading Company building. Consignment is a savvy way to shop, but it’s also the thrill of the hunt for that perfect piece of furniture that you’ve been waiting for. Prices are more reasonable, especially when your hunt is for quality pieces,” Vickie enjoys the nostalgia that comes with selling consignment, “Especially when younger customers tell us that some of our furniture reminds them of where they grew up in their parents and grandparent’s homes.”
Michael is gratified, “One of my greatest rewards is that consignment allows a customer, who may not have a great deal of money, to be able to purchase a piece that they thought was out of reach for them.” The Whites understand, since their home in Jasper is filled with consignment furniture, mostly traditional, with a hint of French Country.
Revive Us Again furniture is a variety of gently-used furniture. The most popular item currently: “farm” tables. This dining style is a simple way to get back to basics of life, like eating a meal with family. Vickie adds, “I like to think that families are actually eating together again.” The showroom is an array of treasures for the buyers who love the feel of character in furniture. Vickie brings attention to redoing furniture with chalk paint that turns outdated furniture into updated style. “It’s a fun way to redo,” Vickie assures.
The Whites keep a wish list for customers, who ask them to keep an eagle-eye spy for certain pieces. Vickie notes, “One of our customers just bought a rice bed that we’ve been searching for her for months. It was the prefect piece!”
Michael points out their Christmas shop, “It’s unique, in that we have not only new items but consigned items that are one-of-a-kind.” Vickie’s style of decorating her tree tops brings requests from customers to share her tips. Their variety of ornaments makes holiday decorating easy.
When someone wants to consign with Revive Us Again, the Whites asks them to send pictures of the furniture they want to sell or invite them to their home to see the items. Most of their merchandise is obtained locally, but they also bring in furniture from other areas. The Whites have a 120-day consignment period, after that if the item or items don’t sell the consignors contacted to see if they want to pick up their items, sell at 50 percent markdown, or donate to a charity of their choice. “We have been fortunate to receive some very nice items from our over 250 consignors. We consider one of the nicest compliments to be that our customers tell us that we don’t look like a consignment shop because of the number of high-quality pieces we have. Michael says, “Jasper and the surrounding communities have made our shop a success.”
The Whites urge, “Whether you are downsizing, redecorating, looking for that perfect piece or even a special gift, Revive Us Again is the place to shop this season! Find gently used furniture and décor to turn your space into something you’ll enjoy for years to come. Or, if you’re looking to get some extra cash for the holidays, your furniture and home decor pieces could be just the perfect treasure that someone else is looking for.”
Vickie sums up the Revive Us Again business, “I love seeing satisfied customers leave the store, and it’s also rewarding when those same customers return and tell us how much they’re enjoying their special piece. We love making people happy.” ACLM Visit Revive Us Again at
