Entering and Pricing


PRICE IT WELL - WATCH IT SELL!!
 

While it may seem daunting, pricing your items is simple with our online inventory system
 

We want you to have a successful sale and earn a lot of cash, so we urge you to price your items to sell. Think of sales, coupons, clearance, and outlet prices.  Our shoppers are eager to find bargains & will make a lot of purchases when they do! Overpricing & not participating in discount day are the top two reasons for low consignor returns. PRICE IT WELL - WATCH IT SELL!!


When entering your item please use a detailed description to assist us in matching lost tags with items and to ensure tags are not switched by dishonest people.
 

If you plan on donating, you must mark your item as discount. Give them the chance to sell!
 

This pricing guide from our friends at Consignment Mommies is a very helpful tool 
 

Discount

Saturday's sale is 50% off select items.  If you would like your items to be sold at half price, check the Discount box.  
 

We highly recommend discounting as this gives your items a great chance at selling the busiest
time! Some of our shoppers come specifically for discount day!  Don't encourage them to choose
discounted items over your regular priced items. Make your pickup pile smaller!


Donate
We are thrilled to be help you help our local community in need.  Our consignor family has given truckloads of items to local charities!
 

If you would like to donate any unsold item at the end of the sale, check the donate box. We will take care of the rest.
