WICHITA — For the second time in less than six months — and the third time in less than two years — Invio Fine Furniture Consignment is expanding.

Andrea and Eric Johnsen are adding another 1,250 square feet to their furniture consignment shop in the strip center behind Havertys on Rock Road for a total of 3,750 square feet.

"It's just really grown," Andrea Johnsen says of the business, which started in Diva Furniture a couple of doors down.

Invio expanded into its own space in October 2011 and most recently expanded again in May.

Johnsen says her store is doing so well, she could probably handle 8,000 square feet, but she'd rather "take a baby step."

Consignment is popular right now with customers who have unwanted furniture pieces, Johnsen says.

"They don't want to just give them away.”

She says when customers come in to consign their furniture, "they end up purchasing as well."
