Consignor FAQ

How do I become a consignor?

Click the appropriate link below (new or returning consignor). There, you can easily register to receive your personal consignor number and password. From this website, you will enter the items you will be selling and print off price tags to affix to your items for sale. 


How do I prepare my items for consignment?

*Clothing selected for consignment should be of very good quality, clean, free of wrinkles, and in current style. Be sure to examine clothing for stains or holes/tears. Remember: the closer to “like-new” your items appear, the more likely they will sell and the more you will be able to ask for them.

*Clothing should be pinned securely on hangers, with the hook of the hanger bending to the left (like a question mark). You are welcome to combine multiple items on one hanger to sell together. Tag placed on the right (see above pic)

*Shoes should be in very good condition. Shoes should be securely tied together. (zip ties work great!) - Limit of 7 pairs of shoes per consignor

*Baby gear should be in excellent condition. If the item requires batteries,  fresh batteries should be in place so shoppers can see that it works properly. Be sure to check out http://www.cpsc.gov/en/Recalls/ to ensure that your items have not been recalled. Recalled items will not be accepted.


How can I identify my boutique brand clothing?

You may tie a piece of ribbon to the top of your hanger. Clothing with this designation will be sold in the Boutique Corner.  Some examples of boutique brands are Matilda Jane, Sweet Honey, MudPie, and Jelly the Pug.  Please note that sale owners will have final decision on what clothing will be placed in the boutique corner. 


How do I price my items?

Here are a couple of helpful pricing guides.  Be sure to ask yourself what you would be willing to pay for the item in its current condition.  Items can be priced in whole dollar or fifty cent increments.

How do I print tags?

After registering with the website, you can log into your account.  Here you will enter each item you will be selling and assign each item a price.  After entering all the items, you will choose the "print tags" option.  Tags need to be printed on card stock to prevent tearing and falling off the item.  When an item is separated from its tag, it becomes unidentifiable and will automatically be donated.
