DVC Furniture Sales

Here's a curious question!!

My parents own a timeshare in Williamsburg,Va and when they replace or upgrade the furniture they have a sale which is open to owners first. A lot of the furniture is in almost new condition.

Do they do this with the DVC furniture when they replace or upgrade the furniture? And if so where or how can you find out about the sales?

I can't imagine that Disney sells on eBay, so there is either a company they have an agreement with that purchases all the stuff, or they have a sale and companies buy it to sell on eBay!!

They sell some of it in the cast member store. Which may end up on ebay.

I've also heard Disney will auction off lots of furniture from refurbishments to bidders (irl) who in turn have warehouses or put them up on ebay. I got a picture from the BWV when they had refurbished them this way. Can't seem to find that site. The other site I know of was reported as now being littered and containing tons of broken items by those who have gone over in person.

yep - pretty sure it's part of the refurbishment process.

Not a clue - but don't think I'd want to be buying lots of 50 armoires. Not exactly carry-on compatible

I just did a search - and the company names we used to hear of here on the DIS were SurplusKingdom and Mousesurplus. The honesty of both places was in question as there was something to do with a partnership and a falling out. Moot point though as both seem to be out of the furniture business for now.

The place I got my picture from was a nice shop, but they didn't carry all that much. I was impressed by their service and shipping. Wish I had their name still to see if they're in operation.

Searched my email and found the company I delt with: http://www.ownthemagic.com/
As I mentioned they keep very little stock (look under 'catalog' menu at top), but I was impressed by them.

Interesting!!! Thanks for sharing!! But I still wonder how and when they auction these things off!! How often are they required to replace the furnishings??

There are stores for cast members (Disney employees) either backstage at the parks or right outside the parks, not open to the general public.

So, when they sell the used furniture from DVC properties, do the proceeds go back to the membership? Just curious.

some resort/park items we've bought from mousesurplus (ebay and their old warehouse - their new storefront had nothing "fun"), surplus kingdom, cast connection/property control (CMs only), and a few others on ebay:
- GF "fairies" bedspread, dustruffle, 6 HUGE decorative pillows & a bunch of small ones, thermal "ribbon" drapes, "artwork"
- large BWV picture (the one looking out of the room, with the "hidden mickey balloon") - still available on ownthemagic, tho we paid less
- YC entrance rug, ice bucket/tray, bathroom stuff
- AKL lighting fixtures
- ground (standing) speakers used in the parks
- old signs (favorite is the LARGE metal ticket pricing sign, with river country, etc)


and much, MUCH more

most visitors to our home don't even realize that the item they liked was actually from WDW, but we know, and enjoy the warm memories from them.

do keep an eye on ebay, as ppl remodel, and resort items still show up there.
(btw, i was told by mousesurplus, etc that they were allowed to remove the replaced items as part of the reno work they were involved in).

Hmmmmm that's interesting, never thought about it. I would assume it is included as income, just as when I sell an asset from my business after it is depreciated money goes back to business.
