Wait! What will I actually be doing?
Our crew members do a little bit of everything! There are shifts for truck unloading, cashier, floor set-up, order fulfillment, food delivery, putting out signs, handing out flyers, sort, check-in, drop-off, sales floor merchandising and more.
Play to your own strengths! Sign up for something you like, then just grab an apron and a name tag when you arrive for your shift (and make sure to sign in so we know you were there)
About those off-site shifts: (you're only allowed one!)
Sign up to provide a meal for 6/8 crew members or snacks & drinks for 20 (you will be contacted about what to bring.)
Flyer Delivery: Deliver 500 flyers to a "route" of day-cares and child friendly places.
Signs: Place (and retrieve) 6 to 10 yard signs in designated places around LKN/Concord.
Some people help out to shop early, some people help out to keep more. (Maybe you just want some Sail Swag- one of our cool T-shirts or bags!?!) Whatever your motivation, we WANT and NEED for you to assist in making your sail great-- so if you can't find a shift that works for you, please let us know--we are happy to create a custom one just for you! Our times are a guideline to help YOU with scheduling!
Your shopping "buddy" may NOT be one of our consignors who did not crew with us --that wouldn't be fair! Consignors have to buy up their own rate. Only one "special/off-site" shift per consignor. (ie signs, flyers, food)
Please do not SIGN-UP and then not SHOW-UP! It's not nice. . . . and we'll be forced to call you a "landlubber" and think of you unkindly!
Sail Again LOVES our CREW! Without you, our sail would not be possible. We know that people love what they help to create, and we want you to love us. So please, plan to help! Help us create YOUR sail. Want to know a tiny bit more about us first? Click here for sneak peek into what we are really about.
Just do it. It's fun! Hang out with other moms. Get your girlfriends together and help out as a group. Earn a pass to shop early. And . . . keep more or your money too!
Crew schedules for the Santa Sail Online in Concord are open. Use the Consignor Login or Register Here links to login to your account and select a shift that fits your schedule, matches your skill set and meets your expectations in terms of % payout and shopping times and the cool Sail Swag that you want to score. The schedules includes a few special "double" shifts where 4.5 or 5 hrs of crew time gets you credit for two entire 3 hr shifts (that's 6 hours of credit for 5 hours of work!).
Sail Again is a 65/35 sale. In Mooresville, you pay us a $15 combination consignor/registration fee. $10 of which is subtracted from your proceeds at the end and a non-refundable $5 registration fee when you sign up to participate. Our online Santa Sail is just $8 paid when you register. And, you pay a 35% commission for us to get your stuff sold. (or, said another way, you keep 65% of your sales.) If you would like to keep more of your sales (i.e. pay us less) you can buy that rate with your time! You'll do more. You'll take home more, and we'll work for a lower % because YOU are helping. Makes sense, right? You can buy a 75% rate if you help for at least 4 shifts and you'll get to shop sooooooo very early! In future seasons we may allow more items if your sell-through is higher AND we may allow you to purchase either the rate OR the shopping time for a $ fee if contributing "sweat equity" doesn't fit into your schedule. We are always trying to make the sail better and change with the times to better fit your needs.
Beginning in Fall 2020, here is how it works:
Assisting for one shift still buys you a 65% rate but you'll get an earlier shopping time (before those consignors who don't crew) and a cool T-shirt too!
Crew for two shifts (6 hours of crew time) and shop earlier still and get your consignor fee waived. Plus, you'll still keep 65% and get the T-shirt.
Crew a 3rd shift and you'll keep 70% of your sales and you're buying the right to get in even earlier, and of course, your consignor fee is waivedand you get that T-shirt.
Your 4th shift will buy you an even earlier shopping time and another 5%. What? Yes! This is the sweet spot y'all. You can snag some awesome stuff! (Woop! Woop! 75% now!), and you're getting your fee waived and both a shopping bag and one of our cool T-shirts!
Want THE EARLIEST shopping time and ALL.THE.THINGS?
Then you're got to crew 5 shifts and one of them must be part of "the sort" or another specially designated shift You'll get 1) the earliest shopping time. 2) the bag AND the T-shirt, 3) you'll keep 75% of your sales and pay us only 25% and 4) your $10 consignor fee is waived and 5) you will be invited to a special shopping time for sort crew only and 6) a $15 shopping credit!!!
Care ONLY about the early SHOPPING and not so much about the swag & the added %?You can also sign up to work with us by the hour for either cash or sail credit! Email us and we can work something out!
