Any one know who determines what each item will sell for?
You determine the price. We recommend 50% of retail for excellent condition items and then adjust accordingly – if you saw it at the sale what would you pay? First time sales are tough because you can overprice and sell nothing or price too low, sell it all, but not make a ton of money.
I am ready to consign for the first time, and know very little about it- I need to catalog my items and price them, submit them to the consignment sale owners, and they will email back price tags to be printed, si? Is there a good “how-to” anywhere on consigning, because I am feeling overwhelmed at the whole matter for some reason…
I’ve done Pass It On Sales for nearly 6 years now (eek). You sign up to consign, pay your fee, receive a consignor #, and then enter your inventory. When done you print your tags on cardstock, tag your stuff, separate by G or B stuff, and then drop off. An inspector looks over your items, accepts what is good, and you’re done! Nightly you can log on and see what has sold. At the end of the sale you pick up what did not sell – or if you marked donate while doing inventory entry, it goes to NW Children’s Outreach and you get a tax writeoff 🙂 Consignors shop earlier than the public and if you volunteer at all you shop earlier and you make more $$$. These sales pay 60% of your price and up, a store gives you 40% at best. Email me at kirsten dot beier at gmail dot com and I can help you (or anyone in need of it).
Wow, you’re an angel, thank you for laying it out for me [= I feel like I’ve always cut it too close to the deadline to consign, so I need to get a jump on things now. I’ll keep your contact info!
Will they accept children on consignment?
We’ve all tried at least once Howard 😉
I’ve consigned and shopped at a few different ones, but I do JBF every year. It is the best for price, quality and selection.
Based on inventory it is one of the smaller sales too.
