DROP OFF DETAILS
Drop off day is a crazy, fun day! It is amazing to watch 75,000 items pour into the building in 36 hours! Please be patient. Please be kind. Wear a smile and tennis shoes! Bring a helper!
Plan to get your steps in! Plan to wait! Plan to see wonderful items you can’t wait to buy!
1. Say Hello
Look for the welcome tent outside the building! Say Hello at the welcome tent and get assigned a spot to drop your stuff!
Get your assigned holding zone spot
Unload all your items in the holding zone assigned to you. We have some rolling carts but not enough for everyone. We recommend you bring a wagon or a helper with you to help you get your items into the building
MOVE YOUR CAR to a parking space
Hang your clothes on a rolling rack (you might have to wait for one. Thank you for your patience)
An inspector will go through each item you bring in the building.
Do your clothes have stains or holes? Are they hanging on a hanger? Is the hanger facing the correct direction? Is the tag in the correct spot? Is the tag the correct cardstock? (not colored or sparkly)
Do your toys work? Do your baby items turn on? We will plug them in!
Get CLAIM tags on things over $25 or that are too heavy to carry around the sale
4. Floor your items
Plan for this to take 1-2hrs depending on how many items you’ve tagged and how fast you move. (You are allowed to bring a helper!) This will go faster if you have presorted your items! Sort your clothes by size and gender. Some people put garbage bags over the groups of clothes. Some use rubber bands or zip ties around the hangers to keep like items together. Put your baby items in another bin/box and your toys/games in another bin/box.
Put out your clothes first! Get your clothes off the rolling racks so the next person can use it!
Books get their own box! Just presort them at the “BOOK DROP OFF” table. Our wonderful book ladies will shelf them!
To help your items sell best, floor your items in the correct department. If you have questions, please ask someone in yellow! Also, please reference the floor map!
Unfloored Items left in the inspection area will be placed in your pick up bin (or donated if you choose to donate)
5. Say goodbye
When you “say goodbye” WE TURN ON YOUR TAGS in the system. If you don’t say goodbye, we can’t sell your stuff!
Donating all? Thank you! Get a donation slip for tax purposes!
Coming back to get what doesn’t sell? Leave a bin! A box or plastic bin is acceptable. Make sure your consignor number is visible! MONDAY, April 3rd, 7PM. NO EXCEPTIONS!!!
Get your Swag Bag! Your “FRIEND OF CONSIGNOR” pass is in there! You can bring one friend to shop the consignor shopping time, Tuesday at 5pm. The Friend of Consignor pass is good for Wednesday from 9am – 9pm! You may share this electronically, but please DO NOT SHARE ANYWHERE ON FACEBOOK!
Frequently asked questions
Q. Can I bring my kids?

Q. What if I can’t come at my assigned time?
A. Email Jen ASAP! firstname.lastname@example.org
Q. Can I bring someone to help me unload and floor my items?
A. YES! Just make sure they know where to put the items! To help your items sell best, floor your items in the correct department. If you have questions, please ask someone in yellow! Also, please reference the floor map!
