How do I consign?
REGISTRATION FOR THE FALL SALE IS FULL!
As a consignor, it's simple. You get to set the price on your items. Remember that people are looking for deals at sales like this, so be smart with your pricing if you want it to sell!!!
Please price items in multiples of 0.25. If you are going to price an item on a WHITE or PINK TAG, it MUST be priced in multiples of 0.50!!! (You can't divide .25 in half!!) Please use the tags that are available to download here. Please print them on heavy card stock paper as that will be less likely to tear than regular paper. REGULAR PAPER IS NOT ACCEPTABLE!!!! Please tape price tags with clear packaging tape to all items that a tag cannot be pinned (toys, baby equipment, etc.) Please use Scotch tape on books to avoid tearing. Please pin tags directly on the clothing, not on the hanger. *****On clothing, please pin price tag on an area that is noticeable, but not through the front of the clothing!! We recommend that you use underarm seams, tag on collar, etc.) This is a new rule as some people complained that the pins left very tiny holes in the clothing. You may also use a clothes tagger. These work very well and make the tagging process for you much quicker!! They can be found for very cheap on Ebay. **The hanger should look like a question mark when facing you. We are not responsible for missing tags. Items cannot be sold without a tag. NO STRAIGHT PINS PLEASE!!!! Anything that does not meet these guidelines will NOT be accepted.
ALL CLOTHING MUST BE ON HANGERS!!!! Please do not place any clothing in Ziploc bags other than socks, onesies, etc.
Shoes will sell better and look neater if they are placed in Ziploc bags, but can be also tied together with the shoelaces. Shoes must show little wear and be clean. Please tape the tag to the OUTSIDE of the bag!!
Small Items such as socks, onesies, etc. do better if they are packaged together in a ziploc bag. Please staple bag closed so things will not be lost out of the bag. Place price tag on the OUTSIDE of the bag with clear tape.
Toys must be in working order. Toys MUST include all parts. Any tiny, loose pieces can be packaged in a Ziploc bag . Attach the bag to the main item with heavy packing tape. Also, you might want to tape the bag shut to prevent lost parts! Do Not bring items with missing parts. If a toy requires batteries to operate, they MUST be included for acceptance.
TAG ITEMS. All tags MUST be printed on 60-67# card-stock. If you can't print them at home on card stock, take them to your local printer and have them copy them for you. Please use colored card stock if you want your items back. ALL PINK TAGS WILL ALSO GO 1/2 OFF, BUT THE ITEMS WILL BE RETURNED TO YOU. WHITE TAGS WILL BE 1/2 OFF AND THEN BE DONATED. If items with a white tag do not sell, it means you do not want them back and they will be donated to charity. Again, white and pink tags will go 1/2 off ALL DAY on Saturday........white will be donated and all pink will be returned to you if not sold.
Any item without a tag WILL NOT be sold. If you do not put a price on your item, we have the right to price it for you.
DROP OFF ITEMS. All clothing items MUST be on hangers at time of drop off. Drop-Off will go fast if items are hung correctly and sorted by gender and size. It is a big help if you have your clothing grouped together by size and gender!!! Again, drop off is on Thursday 10/8/15 from 11-7. ****WE WILL HAVE TIMED DROP OFF THIS SALE!!!
Items will be inspected at drop off. Any items that are outdated, stained, ripped or otherwise unacceptable will be given back to you.
PICK UP OF UNSOLD ITEMS We CANNOT store your items after the sale. If you would like your unsold items returned, you MUST pick them up at the designated pick up time which is 5:30-6:30 on Saturday 10/10 ****DO NOT COME ANY EARLIER THAN 5:30!!*** We may not be finished sorting and you risk having items lost. There will be ABSOLUTELY no e-mails, phone calls, etc. trying to track down owners of left-over items. Any items that have not been picked up BY 6:30pm will become the property of Second Time Around and donated!!!! Sorry, there are NO EXCEPTIONS to this as we must be out of the church and cannot store your items. If you can't pick-up... find a friend that will.
PAYMENT All checks will be mailed within 28 days of the close of the sale. All checks that have not been deposited after 60 days will be voided and consignors forfeits these funds.
There is a a new law that affects reselling of children's goods. The purpose of the CPSIA (Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act) is to keep babies and kids from being exposed to any products that have high levels of lead. This law affects not only new items, but also second hand items like ours.
