Anybody had a good experience selling a diamond engagement ring on consignment in Toronto? Or if you've got quite a lot of knowledge on the subject, is there a better way to maximize the price of one? [more inside]

I'm familiar with Buffalo Exchange and Crossroads, but I have some nicer stuff (BCBG, DVF, Elie Tahari) that I wouldn't mind selling. Consignment sounds like a pain in the ass but if people really insist it's my best bet, I'd consider it (if so, where is best?). If no other options for selling, BE>Crossroads, right?

Hello Austin, Where are my people?
I recently moved to Austin, TX from Fargo, ND (of all places).
I've quickly discovered that this place is flooded with awesomeness, to a point of being mildly overwhelming.
Thus, I am asking for help with finding things and people with similar tastes.
I am, a maker crafts person type, I mostly sew and knit but I have a background in sculpture and some interest in learning electronics.
I am also a cyclist, who loves chill coffee houses and a sense of community.
I'm looking for:
1. a place to consign/wholesale goods I make, mainly plush toy monsters, before the holiday season. also craft fairs
2. a couch, or a place to find a couch (secondhand); thrift stores dont seem to have much in the way of furniture.
3. a good, non-chain, hardware/surplus store.
4. a good fabric store
5. a job
6. fellow makers

I sold some items through a consignment shop that has now gone out of business. On the day I picked up my unsold items, they said they'd be distributing checks after the last day of operation. That was nearly three weeks ago. Would it really take this long, or did they just take my money and run? [more inside]

My husband came into our relationship with a very expensive Stickley (not antique) dining table. It doesn't match any of our furniture, it's too big for our space, and it also comes with some bad memories from his previous marriage. We'd love to sell it, but can't seem to find a buyer. We've had no bites on Craigslist (other than scammers), no luck with an estate sales company, and when I check completed listings on eBay, I see that similar tables don't sell, new or used. What are we missing? [more inside]

Where in Toronto can I buy a classy leather messenger bag or briefcase, without breaking the bank? I want something more "design" than "Organization Man". Consignment places that sell designer menswear? A discount store in Yorkville? [more inside]

Anyone know a good shipping agent in the UK? I have a consignment of goods being sent there from Indonesia. I'm a UK resident but won't be back there until June. The goods will arrive back just before I do & I need an agent to handle all of the admin.
