Our award-winning antiques consignment shop, La Cache, generates revenue to benefit kids and families at Children’s Hospital Colorado. Shopping, donating, consigning and volunteering at La Cache all help provide funding to reimagine children’s healthcare.
A legacy of impact
Children’s Colorado volunteer Lenore Stoddart founded La Cache in 1982, and we’ve been exclusively staffed and managed by volunteers ever since. La Cache has made a tremendous impact, donating more than $5 million in net proceeds to Children's Colorado over the years.
Whether you’re an antiques buff, consignor, donor or volunteer, we have an opportunity for you to make a difference.

Frequently Asked Questions about La Cache
You do not need an appointment to consign jewelry at La Cache. Please bring jewelry in at any time during business hours (Wednesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.) and leave it for our pricers.
We do not inventory the jewelry when you bring it in, so you should keep a list of what you are leaving with us. Our jewelry pricer will send you a separate inventory and contract the following week with assigned prices for you to consider.
If you want to consign furniture or chandeliers, we require that you take photographs of the items you want to consign and email them to LaCacheConsign@Gmail.com. Please put "La Cache" in the subject field of the email.
The furniture pricer will contact you to let you know what pieces will be accepted. It is then your responsibility to deliver the furniture to La Cache and to pick it up if it does not sell. The rest of the consignment process is the same as for other items.

Once your items have been inventoried and priced at La Cache, we will send you a copy of the contract. Please review the contract to see which items have been accepted and their prices. You can then accept or reject individual items on the contract.
Items not accepted will be marked "pick up" or "donate" on your contract. Please circle on your contract whether you will pick up the items or donate them, sign the contract and send it back to us. If you choose not to consign any items with La Cache, a $25 donation to Children's Colorado is requested when items are picked up.
Once we have your signed contract, your items will be displayed for four months. After the items are displayed for 40 days, the price will be reduced 20%. After 80 days, the price will be reduced another 20%.

The date to call La Cache is listed on the second page of your contract.
Donated items will be priced and displayed with a tag marked RDF (Red Door Fund). All proceeds of the sale of RDF items go to Children's Colorado.
