As a Consignor, what percentage do I make on consigned items?

You receive 65% of the purchase price of each item sold.


Are there any fees involved to Consign?

Yes. There is a $10 registration fee that will be deducted from your check.


Do I have to volunteer?

Absolutely not! You can drop off items and then wait for your check! However, to receive the BEST shopping opportunities at the sale, it is best to volunteer and it's tons of fun too! If you volunteer we require a minimum of two 5 hour shifts.

You pick the price that you think is appropriate. A basic rule of thumb is to price the item for approximately 1/4 of its retail price. Consider its condition and ask yourself “Would I pay ___ for this item?” Items with tags attached and boutique brands go for slightly more. (See our Pricing Guide for help).

We will accept Cash, Visa, Mastercard, and Discover.

Explain the Drop Off procedure.

Drop off your items during the drop off hours as shown on the Sale Schedule. We have a very streamlined process and it will take less than 20-30 minutes. Upon arrival, you will be directed to a check-in table where all items will be inspected. We have 2 Drop-off stations: 1) Downstairs: Clothing, shoes, toys, games, books, nursery items etc. 2) Upstairs around back of store: Large Item Drop-off (for large items like furniture, train tables, high chairs, car seats, strollers etc).

 

**You should first come downstairs to get in line for the clothing/ item inspection. It is at this point that you will sign in and receive your consignor & guest passes etc. 


Explain Pick Up procedure.

To pick up your unsold items and check for items sold, please check the Sale Schedule for pick up day and time. If your items are not picked up during these hours, they will be donated and your check mailed to the address on file.

Important change affecting the Women's Sale Only!

 

Due to minimal volunteer staffing with this sale, we will not be able to sort unsold items by consignor number for the Women's Sale. At unsold item & check pickup day, you will pickup your unsold items from the sales floor. After collecting your items you will check out with with one of the staff members before leaving. All items not picked up will be donated to Frazer's Clothes Closet. Thank you for your continued support for this Sale. 

  

Ideas to help locate your items easier: You may want to use similar color hangers or tab each hanger with colored tape or use a different "light colored" card stock for tagging or wrap a colored ribbon around each hanger etc.  Any questions please call 334.270.1456.
