Resources & Answers
Welcome! We're so glad you're here. We're absolutely honored that you've chosen to SAIL with us.
Please know that our primary goal is for you to sell LOTS of stuff and have a great experience while doing it. (Haven't decided yet? Click on the blue CONVINCE ME! button and you'll be consigning in no time!)
The CONSIGNOR LOGIN button at the top of every page of the website will take you to our My Consignment Manager registration page where you can register, schedule drop-off and sign up for your volunteer shift (and we DO NEED YOU to volunteer!) There are lots of great perks for doing so! You can find them listed on the volunteer page. Volunteer and drop off schedules for our Spring 2018 Sail open in early December 2017.
SUPER IMPORTANT THINGS TO NOTE:
(if you don't read anything else, read this!)
*The regular consignor fee is $12. This fee is non-refundable because it reserves your spot.
*We ask that EVERY consignor assist in getting their items sold by promoting the SAIL on social media (there are often contests associated with this) Please plan to help!
*There now exists on Facebook a CLOSED, invitation only Consignor group named, Sail Again Consignor Group (catchy, right?) If you are a registered consignor, please request entry into this group. It is a place to ask questions and have them answered by seasoned consignors. It is also a great place for us to share important info & contests.
*There is a $2 tagging minimum. The system will not allow you to price an item under $2.
*Every consignor who intends to pick up even ONE item, needs to leave a plastic/rubber bin (without the lid) for sort. This is both convenient for you to take your things home in, and a necessity for our sort process. Neither boxes nor bags work well for this process. Those who do not bring a bin will be charged $5.
*There is a 50 item hanging limit for sizes 0-18mths. This is a combined total for both genders and across all sizes. (ie 49 girls items and 1 boys item, NOT 50 boys and 50 girls and NOT 50 9mth items and 50 18mth items) Just 50 total. You may group like items/outfits on a hanger(s) with only one tag.
*We would love it if every consignor would choose to volunteer.Consignors who do not volunteer make 65% of their sales. Those who do, can make 70%, 75%, or even 80%.
*We will once again accept your maternity items, but you are limited to your best 20 pieces.
*As of the Spring 2018 Sail, we will no longer sort socks. You can still bring them of course but they must be marked to donate. (If you forget, we won't- even those not marked to donate will be donated.)
*We would also love it if you would mark your books to donate--helps with sort and REALLY HELPS our charity partners who put books n the hands of kids who really need them.
*We will also accept your meticulously cleaned diaper genies and potties.
*We DO accept car seats and travel systems but only if they were manufactured after February of 2014 (4 years old or less) and you must certify that they have never been in an accident. We will also accept your non-expired booster seats.
*We no longer accept breast pumps or crib bedding.
*Drop-off is by appointment and you should expect it to take one hour. Plan to bring in your hanging items, check in at the desk, deliver your items to be inspected and then return to your car and retrieve the rest of your items (toys, equipment, shoes etc) and put them out while your clothing is being inspected, When your number is called please interrupt this process and immediately retrieve your rack of clothing and put it out on the sale floor.
*Pick-up of your unsold items (and your bin) is scheduled for Tuesday March 13th from 4-7pm
PLEASE do not wait to register! Our spots are limited and we fill up fast! Regular Registration is just $10. Drop-off your items BY APPOINTMENT on Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday March 5th, 6th & 7th. Consignor/Volunteer shopping opens Thursday evening March 8th. You can find the entire sail calendar under the calendar tab in the navigation bar---up there at the top of every page of the website.
Sail Again is a 65/35 sale for consignors who don't choose to volunteer. But, IF YOU VOLUNTEER for only one 3-hr shift, you make 70% of what you sell and we make 30% minus the expenses of running the sail. (Space rental, insurance, racks, tables, software, credit card fees, advertising, promotion, etc. etc.) There are hundreds of volunteer slots available -- a few dozen of them can even be done from home outside of sail hours. And, if you volunteer for at least 4 shifts, you'll make a whopping 80% of your sales!
We count on our consignors to volunteer and assist in any way possible to promote the sail. This is how we get your stuff sold!! When you volunteer, you earn both the chance to shop early and the right to make a higher percentage of your sales. Even if you can't volunteer, it is imperative that you promote the sail via word-of-mouth, social media, and email forwarding and sharing. TELL some people about us!
Want to consign but no time to tag? Let us valet for you! Drop off your items to a valet tagger and let them do all the work and you can still make 45% of your sales.
Want to sell LOTS of stuff? Make sure you mark it to discount. On the last day, most of our consignors mark their items to go 50% off--sell it and get it out of there we say! You can also really help us help others by marking your items to donate at the end of the sail. We help so many families this way.
Please refer to the RED tabs on this page before you get started and most of your questions will be answered. But if you're stuck, don't hesitate to email us with questions at firstname.lastname@example.org . We will do our best to respond to you within 24 hours. Again, welcome and thanks for trusting us with your stuff!
Happy, Happy Sailing!
