Especially as a kid, that moment of glimpsing your holiday haul, but not yet knowing exactly what goodies you got. That’s the feeling the staff at lower Polk’s consignment store, Leftovers, gets when they receive a delivery every day. Sometimes it’s furniture, sometimes art, even jewelry and general knickknackery stamped with names like DWR, Crate & Barrel, McGuire, Room & Board, Pottery Barn, Baccarat, Limoges and Lalique. Whether it’s an Ikea piece or a rarity that has all the city’s top decorators drooling, to Leftovers, it’s a treasure worth sharing with their customers.
Kelly Hensley, a former advertising creative director and lifelong consignment hound, opened Leftovers with a passion for antiques and design. Leftovers offers sellers 50% of the profit on items sold in a 60 day term. With two locations in lower Polk, the smaller boutique-sized store carries a treasure-trove of smaller goodies and the 5,000 sq. ft. brick-walled showroom around the corner, offers larger, fabulous home merchandise. A giant red couch that looks as if it was built to seat an NBA team takes up one wall, a Hold sign tacked to one of the arms, while a kidney shaped Hollywood Regency mirrored coffee table seems to whisper stories from another corner.
Leftovers is very active in the community, furnishing first apartments through Rooms for Change as well as work with local animal care charities like Toni’s Kitty Rescue and SF’s Animal Care Control branch. The store also donates to Out of the Closet, Community Thrift, A.R.A., Larkin Street Youth, Project Openhand and the fight to cure breast cancer. Kelly hopes as Leftovers’ success continues, she can contribute more to the causes near and dear to her heart, but for now she’s tagged Leftovers as a drop off point for donated towels and blankets she’ll then take to local animal shelters.
