Home Consignment Website For San Francisco Bay Area

Previously Owned by a Gay Man: A Local Twist on Home Decor Consignment

Previously Owned by a Gay Man isn't your average home consignment concept. After watching their friend Douglas house-hop through the San Francisco Bay Area real-estate market, founders Michele Hofherr and Lindsay Snyder couldn't help but notice the heaps of decor that Douglas discarded after each move to make room for the new pieces that matched the new digs. While his rotating collection of housewares ranged in style from Ralph Lauren classic to urban zen, they were high-end, usually one-of-a-kind pieces in mint condition that seemed too precious to be given to charity sales.

Figuring that Douglas couldn't be the only design-savvy pal they had in the San Francisco Bay Area, Michele and Lindsay decided to launch Previously Owned by a Gay Man, a recommerce site that feels like a hybrid of 1st Dibs and Craigslist. The site's well-curated vintage and modern gems resemble what you might find in a reputable antique shop or design boutique, only they're offered online for locals. Shipping outside the San Francisco Bay Area is also possible. Sellers can also benefit by getting a hefty cut of whatever is sold, including a full-service option, which includes storage and delivery of items you want to sell. The site's unique combination feels both highbrow and accessible, perfect for those with expensive taste who may not have an accommodating bank account — just our kind of consignment!
