Ok, first, how DOES it work . . . seriously?!?! First you register. Then tag your items in our Online Tagging System. Drop your stuff off at one of our sale locations. Wait by the mailbox for your check! Yep! It's that easy!
What is the consignor split? You'll make 65% of your sales as a consignor! But, you can help out as a crew member for just one 3 hr shift and raise that percentage to 70%.(Yeah, we used to call this volunteering but lets face it, this isn't volunteer work- you're earning a higher %!) Consignors who crew for 4 or more shifts can make up to 80% of their sales!
What's this crew thing? Most of our consignors want to pitch in for 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 crew members, assist shoppers, tidy the sales floor or even work as a cashier. There are hundreds of shifts available --even a few dozen that you can do from home outside of sail hours. (Crew schedules open in January!)
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? Registration opens in late October or early November for our Spring/Summer 2019 sale season. Drop-off appointments are scheduled for Sunday Monday & Tuesday March 3rd-5th in Mooresville. And for early in the first week of April for our new Landis location.
How do I get paid? We will pay you via PayPal direct deposit and you will have your $ within 10 business days of the sail close 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!)
Got some Questions about how it all works?
Here is a list of our most frequently asked ones and a link to our Consignor Resources page where you can find longer, "meatier" answers and more details about "HOW" it all works. Happy Sailing!
- Last year 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 all the gas and time 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 on Facebook Marketplace-- Goodness Mama how many messages did you have to answer before you sold that ONE item? What about the people who still didn't show up?!
-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!
So, you're thinking about consigning . . .
You've already tried other ways to clear out all the kids clothing, toys, and gear in your house--haven't you?!?! How's that working out for you Mama? 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!
But . . .we can help you clear that clutter with a lot less frustration and make you a BIGGER check besides!
