Items checked in that do not meet our strict criteria will be removed from the sales floor and discarded.

How do I know what to price my items?

You should price each item for at least $2 (we recommend $5 and selling a few items in "lots" to make more money). We offer you some pricing suggestions on the website but as a general rule, you should price things 1/4 – 1/3 of their original retail price. Popular or name-brand items can be priced higher. You are the best judge, price an item for no more than you would be willing to pay for that same item.

Do you require clothing to be on hangers?

Not for the online sale. You are only dropping off SOLD  items to us AFTER they sale and we ask that you put clothing in clear plastic bags. No hangers required for the online sale.

How can I earn the highest percentage – 75%?

Consignors earn a minimum of 60%. You will earn 65% with a perfect drop off. If you help for one 4-hour shift we will increase your percentage to 70% or 75% when you help a total of 8 hours (two 4-hour shifts) Click Here for information on earning more.

Is there a deadline to enter and upload images?

Yes. Each sale will have its own deadline which will be communicated to consignors ahead of time.  After that time, consignors will no longer have access to the system. The deadline will be shared with your a registration and is usually 5 days prior to the start of the online event to allow us time to download items onto the site.

Will I be able to track my sales during the event?

Yes! Consignors will be able to track sales daily. Sales statistics will not be “live” but will be updated each morning before 9 am. Items sold on the same day as pick up will not marked as sold until 9am Monday morning.
