We want to ensure that all the products at the sale are clean and in working order or we cannot accept them.
Who sets the prices?
Each consignor chooses how he or she want to price their items. The lower you price your items, the better they will sell. The price on your tag is what it will be sold for, however, the last day of the sale is the 50% off sale day. It is up to you as the consignor to decide if you would like your items to be discounted on that day. When making your product tags online, you may choose which, if any, items you would like to be discounted (once you drop off your items you can not change price or discount option).
When do I bring my items to the sale?
Upon registering, you will also need to sign up for a drop-off appointment to bring your items to the sale. Drop-off is typically the day before the sale starts. Drop-off should only take you about 10-15 minutes dependng on how much you are consigning. We will inspect all the items you bring to make sure there are no stains, damage, rips, tears, and that all items are working. If you have already registered CLICK HERE to sign up now for drop off.
What happens to unsold items?
