Consignor FAQs

I am new to the sale, what do I do?
  • We have two sales each year – Fall and Spring, so gather your items that you wish to sell at the appropriate seasonal sale. 

  • To become a consignor simply register through our consignment manager system here on the website (click the red registration button to access the system).

  • Through our online consignment manager system, our consignors will price and create tags for all of their items.

  • Tags are generated through the consignment manager system and should be printed on basic card stock.

  • Attach your barcoded tags to your items with a tagging gun or safety pins. (Tagging guns can be purchased for a minimal cost on Amazon). Tags should be attached through the garment tag or under the left arm sleeve. On items where safety pins or tagging fasteners cannot be used, items tags should be secured with clear packaging tape avoiding the barcode on the tag. 

  • Drop off your items during any of our Drop Off times. You will be able to put items on hangers provided by us (while supplies last) and then put the items in the appropriate section. Once Drop Off days are done, we will resort things for the Sale. 

  • Please bring your items fully prepared. We do have hangers if you need them (while supplies last)

  • Pick up any of your items that didnt sell and weren't marked for 'Donation' 

 

Check out our guides and video tutorials on the Consignor Info page for more information about using the system and tagging and preparing items. 

 

I do not see my item's category and/or size in the system. What do I do?
  • An item's category and size is just helpful information but does not need to be totally accurate. There is a 'Miscellaneous' category and every category has a 'See Description' as well as a blank for size options. The information on the tags is most useful for when a tag falls off during the sale and we have to figure out the item it goes to so that we charge the price that you want. The description box can be where you add all your descriptive information if you can not find a category or size that works. 

Do I need an appointment or do I just drop off my items?
  • No, you do not need an appointment. Please come during our Drop Off hours for consignment drop off. Consignors may shop  on Drop Off days. See dates here

Do we price our own items?
  • Starting with the 2018 Spring Sale, our consignors have had control of all item pricing including clothing. General pricing guidelines will be provided on our Consignor Information Page.

  • For pricing the following: Toys, games, baby equipment, bedding, costumes, hats, books or DVDs, we suggest that you ask about half of what you paid or simply try and think of what you would want to pay for the item if you came to our sale to buy it. Remember, the better an item looks, the better it sells, so clean up it and put in fresh batteries! NO ONE WILL BUY AN ITEM THAT DOESN’T WORK.

  • See our PRICING GUIDE for pricing suggestions

How much do we earn as a consignor?
  • Consignors make 50% of the selling price of each item sold. We do not charge any fees to participate in our sale.

When do we receive our checks?
  • Your checks will be available immediately following the sale or may be collected on pick up day.

Is there a certain number of items that I have to bring in?
  • There is no minimum number of items to consign but we ask that you limit your clothing items to 150 quality pieces.

  • You do not need to consign in order to shop at our sale.

Are there any items that you don’t accept?
  • Yes. We do ask that you review our website for a list of items that we do not accept. We strongly suggest that you not bring in any “Gerber” type onesies or t-shirts. They just DO NOT SELL. If you can buy them 3 for $5 at the store brand new, they just don’t sell at a consignment sale. We suggest that you donate those items to charity.

 

When can I start buying?
  • Consignors are welcome to shop at any time during the sale including all Drop Off days.

  • Beginning with the first Public Sale Day, the sale will be open to the public for shopping. 

I have items to sell but I don't have time to tag. Can you do it for me?
  • At this time we are not able to price or tag items for you. We would like to offer that service in the future.

  • To help save time, group items of similar category and size (ex "Boy's Pants, Size 4") together which will allow you to make multiple quantities of one tag

I can tag my items but I can not hold them/drop them off during dates. Can you take them? 
  • Yes. Just contact us and we can arrange something. 

If you have any additional questions please do not hesitate to reach out.
