How to Consign:

*As a Consignor you earn 70% of your sales minus a $12 fee that will be deducted from your profits. Volunteer to earn more!*

1. Register and sign up for a drop off appointment.

  • You’ll receive a consignor number when you register through our website. (Click on the "New Consignors" tab.) Use this to log into your homepage and work with your inventory.

2. Gather your supplies and prep your items!

  • Depending on what you’re selling you’ll need:

Hangers

Packing tape

Painters Tape

Zip Ties (various sizes)

Ziploc bags (various sizes)

Card stock (white for donate and colored for pick up)

Tagging Gun

Safety Pins

  • Clothing sells the quickest when hung. Wire hangers work best. Clothing falls off too easily when put on children's hangers. Check YouTube for quick tutorials on how to hang pants and outfits the best way to display them.

  • Zip ties are great for connecting shoes. You can buy a large variety pack of sizes for under $10. Be sure to give shoes a quick wipe down. Magic Erasers do wonders for rubber soles. 

  • Toys with small pieces should be put into ziploc bags and attached to the larger piece. You can do this for games and puzzles as well. 

  • Preschool puzzles that the pieces fit into the holes can be fully wrapped in plastic wrap and taped to display the pieces in place. 

 

3. Input your items.

  • It is best to sort clothing by size as you hang them so that when you input the items you can enter all the same sizes at once. If you have multiples of items they can be entered at one time using the multiples function. Make sure to select donate/ discount options if you plan to donate or discount your items. 

3. Print your tags on card stock.

  • Use white paper for items you’d like to donate. Use colored paper (avoid dark colors and red) for items you plan to pick up. **anything on a WHITE tag will be automatically pulled for donation**

4. Attach Tags to Items.

  • Purchasing a tagging gun from Amazon is an affordable way to save time and your fingers from pinning tags.

  • Painters tape is best to attach tags to books and wooden items or anything that packing tape could pull the paint off of.

  • Small miscellaneous items should be placed in bags, this helps keep them clean and easy to find. No need to attach tags with tape, just slip them inside the bag. Save yourself time and money!

  • Multiple books need to be in a box with the spines facing up. Diaper boxes work great for this.

  • Sort like items as they are tagged and ready to go to make drop off as smooth and quick as possible. 

5. Drop Off Items.

  • Bring your items and Consignor Drop Off Form to your scheduled drop off appointment. 

  • Clothing should be sorted by size and gender. Holiday wear, swimwear and coats have their own section.

6. Shop the Pre Sale!

  • Consignors always shop first before the public.

7. Pick up your items!

  • Any unsold items you pick up are ready to go for our next event. No need to retag! Just stick that tote in the garage and add more inventory until the next event to make more cash.

  • If you donate all of your items, you have nothing else to do, but rest easy knowing you've emptied some closets, made some cash and passed on your unsold items to people in our community who can use them!

 

8. Cash your check!

  • Checks are mailed within 3 weeks of the end of the event.
