Entertainment Centers:

Due to the vast numbers of people purchasing large, flat screen televisions, there is little demand for traditional style entertainment centers that are designed for picture-tube style T.V.'s. Therefore, we are no longer accepting them on consignment.

Media centers designed for flat-screen T.V.'s 48" or larger are in demand, and we would be interested in accepting those on consignment.
