*Volunteer times are limited and on a first come first serve basis. Sign up begins 30 days before the sale.
Please read all the details for the procedures of the sale carefully:
1) Make sure you have contacted us at firstname.lastname@example.org and have been given a consignor number!
2) Keep in contact with us (via Facebook is best!) to sign up for your volunteer time, which is typically organized the month before the sale. Volunteer times are either the Friday night before the sale (set up) or right after the sale (clean up).
3) Drop off your items in bins or boxes with your consignor number clearly marked on all of them. *Please take your lids with you after you drop off your bins! We can’t keep track of everyone’s lids.
4) Sort your clothes into two categories: Spring/Summer & Fall/Winter, obviously we are looking for clothes and accessories that go with the season.
5) All clothes must be washed and folded, no rips or stains. If you can sort them by size, it makes unpacking much faster.
6) Each item must be tagged with our tags (downloadable PDF is below), clearly stating your consignor number, the item, the size, and how much your price is. Having all these details helps if your tags go missing from your items.
7) When pricing, think what you would pay for it. If items come back from the sale, you may consider putting a new tag on it, next time, with a lower price, this increases your chances it won’t come home again.
8) The tags MUST be affixed by safety pins, on the outside of the item, so that the price is easily seen. If the item can not take a safety pin, use masking tape, or put the item(s) in a clear ziplock bag with the safety pin and tag attached (see picture above for examples). NO SCOTCH TAPE.
9) There are many items that display better if they are hung up, like dresses, jackets, costumes, etc. you are welcome to have items on hangers, we will make sure they are hung up on the racks.
10) If you’re selling something that has multiple pieces (like a toy with detachable parts or a two piece outfit) make sure you tag each item in the set, put the price on only one of the tags but state on all tags the number of pieces that go together with as much detail as you can.
11)Please do your best to affix the tags securely, however tags and items can get separated, please check the lost and found section of the sale by the cash.
