Frequently Asked Questions
Is this time-consuming?
There is definitely time involved, but our online tagging system makes it much faster. You will spend time gathering your items, hanging clothing, entering your inventory, and attaching tags. You will get faster as you get more familiar with the system. Some people find that sorting by size and gender before getting started helps. Some people enter everything before printing tags and others enter a batch and then print. You'll quickly figure out what works best for you.
What is the consignor fee?
There is a $10 non-refundable consignor fee that must be paid in order to complete your registration.
What can I consign?
It's always good to check the accepted items list for each specific sale because there are some sales we don't accept in all categories. We are picky about what we accept in order to help consignors sell as much as possible and to give shoppers the best experience. We do not accept items with excessive wear, stains, or missing pieces.
When do I deliver my items?
Each sale has specific drop-off dates and times. You will bring your tagged, hung, prepared items to the sale location. You also need to bring a self-addressed stamped envelope so we can mail your check if necessary.
What happens to my unsold items?
When you enter each item into your inventory you will have the option of donating that item if it does not sell. Items you want back can be picked up during our specific pick-up time. Charities come and collect the items marked for donation. In addition to supporting your community by donating your items, you can also earn half of your consignor fee back by way of a gift certificate to the current sale if you mark ALL of your items "Donate: Yes."
How much will I earn and when do I get paid?
For the Children's Sale, consignors earn 70% of their sales. Consignors that complete two volunteer shifts earn 75% of their sales. For our adult sales, consignors earn 60% of their sales or 65% if they complete two volunteer shifts. Typically we are able to give you your check when you pick up your unsold items. If you are not picking up anything we are usually able to mail checks the following day. Instant gratification!
