Please have the hanger facing the way it is shown in the picture.

 


  • Only Clean Clothing. No stains or holes. We reserve the right to refuse any items.

 


 

  • PRICING: You price your item. General guideline is 1/4 to 1/3 of original sales price. Name brands and excellent condition items sell for more. Ask yourself, "Would I buy this for $xx?" Start early, it takes time to write out price cards and sort clothing.

 

  • SHOES: please limit to your best 50 pair. HANG YOUR SHOES. TIE TOGETHER with laces or strong braided string. Pin or tie your tags on to the shoes with yarn. These display better on our racks than those in bags.  They need to be priced lower than your clothing.

 

  • Baby ITEMS: only baby items in excellent condition will sell unless they are priced very cheap

 

 FEES for consigning your items are $10 Consigner fee plus 20% of sales. Whether you have a little or a lot of items, you keep 80% of the sales price! Fees are deducted from proceeds. Do not meet all fees, you are expected to make the $10 consigner payment.

 


 

  • CONSIGNOR NUMBERS: New consignors will use their first letter of their last name plus the last 4 digits of their phone number as their consignor/seller number. For example, Deena Pittman is P-0582. If you consign at other sales and already have your items tagged and have a specific consigner number, please use that existing consigner number and the tags that are already on your items.

1. Your gently worn to excellent condition clothing must be on a hanger. Hanger hook should face LEFT (looks like ?, a question mark ). Place price tag on right shoulder. Some play clothes may be placed in ziploc bag. Hanging items sell better. Items that are clean, smell fresh, and ironed look & sell better. We accept many sizes, but don't accept clothing dated older than 5 years. A 12 year old's toddler clothing is dated.

 

 

2. IMPORTANT! Sets should be pinned together securely by hanging the shirt first then attaching the pants to the hanger by the waist. The neater this looks, the better the set will sell. Be sure to catch the hanger as you close the pin so the pants do not weigh down the shirt. Try not to hide the pants under the shirt. Pin pants @ top of hanger -- catch the fabric twice or they slide along the bottom & do not sell.  

 

3. We accept baby clothes, kids’ clothes, teen clothes, women clothes, & men clothes.  Purses and bags sell well. 

 

4. Price in whole dollar increments (no .50 cents or .99 cents) at full price. Items not priced in whole dollars will be rounded down to the nearest dollar. Put small items together to equal $1.00 worth. It helps customers keep track and easier checkout.

 

5. Small items should be bagged together in a Ziploc with the price card attached to the front with packaging tape or pinned to the outside. You can bag small toys, games, etc. together for one price which will sell better than little individual ones. Taping the bag shut protects from theft and children opening during sale.

 

6. We accepts all kids' items: Strollers, cribs, beds, toy boxes, high chairs, walkers, toys, books, video games, videos, CD/DVD, shoes, and sporting equipment. Make sure all baby items are not broken or missing pieces. If so, please note on the card. Toys need to include all pieces and be in excellent condition. You can saran wrap small items to the larger item too.

 

7. Toys that need batteries need to include them for demo purposes. They also sell better this way.

 

8. Equipment, furniture, and toys should be clean, have all parts, and any small pieces should be in a Ziploc bag attached to the main part securely with tape, ribbon, or yarn. DO NOT use masking or scotch tape... it will not stay attached. Use clear packing tape or saran wrap.

 

9. It is your responsibility to check all items for recalls.

 

10. Any Chamber Volunteer has the right to refuse any items and price untagged items at checkout. Items without tags will not sell.
