  • Consignors are responsible for checking for all items not sold during the sale.  Forgotten items will be donated.
  • No payments for consignments will be made the day of the sale.  Checks will be mailed within twenty working days.

Preparing Your Items for the Sale

Each consignor is given a number.  This is how we will track the sale of your consigned items.  Use the enclosed sheet to make tags for your sale items. Items without proper tags will be pulled from the sale.

  • Write your consignor number in the box in the upper right corner of each tag.
  • Copy the page to get as many tags as you will need.  (You may use any color paper. Do NOT use white.)
  • Prices must be a minimum of $ 0.25, priced in $ 0.25 increments.
  • If items are to be sold as a set, make sure they are securely fastened together as we will not be responsible for lost items.  With the garment facing you, the open side of the hook on the hanger should face left. There will not be any hangers available at set-up.
  • For easier tag location, please safety pin the tag to the upper right corner of the item.  The safety pin should go through the tag at the black dot, then through the garment. (Clothes tagged with straight pins or sticky tape will not be accepted.) Please do not use packing tape if at all possible.
  • Items that cannot go on hangers should be put in a zip-closure bag, with the tag taped to the inside, easily visible.  Group similar items together if they are not worth $ .50 individually. (For example, socks, shoes, onesies, T-shirts, books, videos, etc.)
  • Items too large for a zip-closure bag must have the tag securely attached in an easily visible place.  Sticky tape or safety pins should be used wherever possible, as long as the tag can be removed without damaging the item or the tag.
  • Tags need to be secured enough not to fall off as shoppers browse.  Items with missing tags will not be sold.
