Regular Consignor vs. Restock ConsignorIn order to accommodate growth we have two kinds of consignors--Regular consignors and Restock consignors.
What is a Restock consignor?
Restock consignors are consignors that register to consignor after we have reached our first 150 consignors.
The biggest difference between regular and restock consignors is when they drop off.
Regular consignors drop off their items on the Tuesday before the event and Restock consignors drop off on Friday evening. Restock consignors also get extra time to enter in items. The deadline to have items entered in for regular and restock consignor is Sunday at 10am. Restock consignors will also have extra time from Tues. to Friday at 10am to enter in items. The online system will be down for restock consignors from Sunday at 10am to Tues. at 9am. Then the online system will open back up for only restock consignors to finish entering in items. Both regular and restock consignors can volunteer to earn a higher percentage and early shopping times. Pre-sale shopping is for both Regular and Restock consignors is on Thurs. evening at 5pm.
Restock Consignor Benefits
How will I know if I am regular or restock consignor?
You will be told when you register if you are a restock consignor. If you register and there is nothing stating you are a restock consignor then you are a regular consignor. If you have questions, you can email us and we will be happy to help you.
Need Wire Hangers?
WIRE HANGERS are REQUIRED for all clothing items and for blankets. Please hang all blankets on a hanger. We purchase wire hangers in bulk and sell them to consignors at our cost. They are 8 cents a piece. To order hangers, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with how many hangers you need and we will send you a paypal invoice for the hangers. Once the order of hangers has arrived we will email you with times and locations to meet up with us to get your hangers.
The consignor agreement has been updated. Please read the updated agreement below. The updated agreement can also be found when you register to consign and on your consignor homepage after you log on.
