About Us


ssectionalThanks for taking the time to visit our web site. When we moved our family to Seminole county, we noticed that there were several great consignment stores in Orlando but none close to us, so when our children both started school, we decided the time was right to open Better Than New in October 2009. This decision came naturally since it’s always been hard for us to resist a craft fair, antique mall, or auction. You might even catch us darting into a yard sale one morning before work. We love finding unique and beautiful things wherever they are hiding.

When you shop with us, you might notice how hard we try to provide excellent customer service, from offering pick-ups and deliveries to helping out with a tape measure and a second opinion. We believe that honesty and hard work make a difference and try to apply those values to everything we do.


Our mission is to keep quality furniture in circulation because chances are, if you bought it, brought it home, and loved it – someone else will love it too.

In addition to being fun and value conscious, consignment is a green decision. Our motto is Reduce ~ Reuse ~ Redecorate. It’s a good feeling, knowing that your purchase didn’t require more new materials in the form of lumber, petroleum, plastics, glues, and transportation. We watch for things made from solid wood and even when it’s not, at least it’s already been assembled and off-gassed for better air quality in your home. We also keep it green by recycling shopping bags and gift bags – bring in a bundle and let us use them one more time.

Shop with us and you are shopping with family, our family, and the families of all our consignors who graciously choose to bring us new and fabulous things every day. We wouldn’t have the variety and selection we have if it weren’t for the tremendous support from the community – Thank you all!

See you soon,

Jenni & Ed
