We will have an item limit of 300 items for our upcoming sale. We do check all items that are brought to the sale to keep the quality of inventory at an excellent level! We encourage you to bring your best items so that you sell a high percentage of your things. A consignor who brings 75 great items will do better than a consignor who brings 150 items that are poor quality and marked too high.
OPTION #1 TRADITIONAL DROP OFF - You want your items guaranteed and attach your labels in the store. Let us print your labels and have them for you when you get to the store. You will label your items at the store on one of the Drop Off Days. (This is most popular.) Please allow one hour per 100-150 items. OPTION #2 LABEL YOUR ITEMS AT HOME AND HAVE THEM GUARANTEED! We can print your labels or you may print them at home (requires a color printer and please follow the directions carefully that appear after you enter your items. FAILURE TO FOLLOW DIRECTIONS CAN COST YOU MONEY WHEN YOUR ITEMS SELL FOR HALF PRICE BECAUSE YOU DID NOT PRINT YOUR LABELS CORRECTLY.) 1. Attach your labels at home. 2. Bring your items to the store IN ORDER. 3. We inspect your items IN ORDER. Items that are not in order will waive the guarantee. 4. After a short inspection, YOU PUT YOUR ITEMS ON THE FLOOR.
We are allowing volunteers and consignors to bring either their spouse or parent with them to help them shop, not a sister or best friend. You may give your guest pass to your sister or friend & meet them at the Guest Sale later in the evening. Our volunteers and consignors have worked hard to earn this special shopping privilege and we want to honor them. We will be checking!
We strongly suggest that you not bring your children to the Pre-Sale. Just bring a tape measure and their measurements and enjoy a mom's night out.
We suggest you set the price at 30% of the retail value for high end items. For store brands, you may want to go lower. Baby equipment, furniture and large indoor/outdoor toys usually sell for more and are in high demand. There is usually an abundance of 0-6 month sizes, so they must be priced competitively to sell. Maternity- and junior-size clothing are not shopped as heavily, so only bring your best and price these competitively, too.
Yes, but you will need to enter your items online in separate batches and under separate consignor numbers. Register for each sale separately.
No, use children's plastic hangers for sizes 10 and below. Use larger plastic hangers for sizes 12 and above. No wire hangers, please!
Place them in a zip-top bag and then seal the bag with clear packing tape. This is important! When I price items in a ziploc bag, how do I attach the price tag? First, be sure to stick the bar code label to the price tag. Do not stick it directly onto the bag. Then attach the price tag securely by its sting and place both item and tag inside the zip-top bag. Please make sure the price tag is visible.
No. Please reuse your code from the previous Greater Memphis sales (this helps us tremendously during our sorting process after the sale is over). If you can't remember your code, there is a place on the "enter items" page where it can be requested. If you have any problems, just email firstname.lastname@example.org, and we'll be glad to send your code to you.
We have some bins on hand, but we suggest you bring a laundry basket with your name on it. Large bags will need to be checked at the door.
If it meets our "excellence quality" standard, then group it together with one or two more like items. Pin them together on a hanger or group them in a zip-top bag and set one price for the entire group.
Wrinkled clothes do not sell! Please do what is necessary to make your clothes look clean and nice. Remember, the better they look, the more likely they are to sell!
We are not able to accept any clothing that has odor of any kind. When it is hung on the rack with other clothes, the odor spreads. We must be sensitive to children and families with allergies and we absolutely cannot sell any items with smoke odor, pet odor or any other kind of odor. Clothing with pet hair is also not acceptable.
Due to recall regulations by the Consumer Product Safety Commission, we do not accept any drop side cribs.
