So, you're thinking about consigning . . .
What is the consignor split? You'll make 65% of your sales even if you don't volunteer! But, you can volunteer just one 3 hr shift and raise that percentage to 70%. Consignors who volunteer 4 or more shifts make up to 80% of their sales! Consignors who don't volunteer at all make 65% of their sales.
What's this volunteer thing? Most of our consignors volunteer at least one 3-hour shift to help get their stuff sold, but it's not a requirement. The Moms (and Dads) who do it make a higher percentage of their sales and get to shop early. You might help with set up, put out signs, hand out flyers, provide a meal for other volunteers, assist shoppers, tidy the sales floor or even work as a cashier. There are hundreds of shifts available --many that you can do from home outside of sail hours.
What kinds of items can I consign? All things kids! Clothes, shoes, toys, books, equipment . . . Check out the consignor resources page for more info.
How long do I have to get this done? Early Bird Registration opens on Monday November 27, 2017 for the Spring/Summer 2018 sale. Drop-off appointments are scheduled for Monday,Tuesday and Wednesday March 5th 6th & 7th. Consignors and Volunteers shop on Thursday afternoon, March 8th.
How do I get paid? We will pay you via PayPal direct deposit and you will have your $ within 10 days of the sail OR if you absolutely, positively can not make PayPal work for you,you can request a check, and your payment will be processed by Bank of America's bill pay system. Checks take longer as they are not written until 30 days after the PayPal payments but you should still have your $ within 6 weeks of sail close. (Either way is fine with us but Pay Pal is more secure and much easier and faster for us (and for you!) so we strongly encourage you to go that route!)
Still want to know if it's worth it? Wondering why Sail Again and not somewhere else?

Well, Of Course You Are!
Here's How It Works:
You don't have to take
our word for it!
You can head over to FACEBOOK and read a bunch of our awesome reviews!
Here's a little sample:
Katie M. says, "This was my first time at this sale and I loved it! I got $270 worth of stuff for $50 during the presale! Awesome quality, great prices and so much to choose from! Thanks Sail Again I will be back in the future."
- Last Spring our sell-through rate was nearly 70%! That's way higher than at a typical consignment store and you're making a higher split too!
- You can give up the yard sale haggling (and the yard sale hosting! --no more strangers in your yard at 6:30am!)
- Think of the gas you'll save (and how much safer you'll feel) when you give up driving around to meet-ups for that Buy-Sell-Trade group.
-You owe it to yourself to give it a try. You said you would clean out that closet/playroom/garage! Here's your chance!
-You can also help a lot of people by donating your items that don't sell! We work with great charities that distribute our donations to folks who can really use them.
-And then there's the CA$H! Our average consignor sells more than $300+ EVERY season! Our largest check last season was for over $2300!
We'll sell your stuff to THOUSANDS of shoppers (most of them, Moms like you!) at
Sail Again's Spring/Summer Sail
500 S. Main St. Mooresville, NC
(next to Alinos Pizzeria and Merinos Furniture)
March 9th-12th, 2017
and as a Consignor and Volunteer, you get to shop FIRST before the public on
Thursday March 8th!
If you've already tried other ways to clear out all the kids clothing, toys, and gear in your house, you know that consignment stores, FACEBOOK meet up groups and other buy-sell-trade groups have the potential to be crazy time consuming, a bit frustrating- because you can't get rid of it all at one time, and worst of all, maybe not even that profitable!
We can help you clear that clutter with a lot less frustration and make you a BIGGER check besides!
But only if it's easy right? A super simple way to turn your kids' clutter into cash!? And make a few hundred buck$? And sell it ALL in just one week?!?! We hear you Mama! Relax. You're in the right place.
