Please note highlighted or pink items below, as they are important or CHANGES from previous sales.

 

 

1. Register as a consigner

 

There is a $7 non-refundable participation fee, paid via PayPal at the time that you register.

*You must hit return to seller once you complete payment in paypal in order to complete registration.

If you take too long in PayPal the system might log you out. If you have any issues, just email us at swmoms@gmail.com.

 

PLEASE NOTE that online access will shut off at 3:00 am on the morning of Monday, September 30th 2019.  This means you only have through Sunday evening to create and print your tags. Keep this in mind if you are registering to sell with only a few days left before the sale.  Our seller fee is non-refundable and cannot be applied to future sales.

This sale, we will be limiting to the first 80 consignors to register.

 

2. Consider signing up for a volunteer time slot

We HIGHLY ENCOURAGE that all sellers volunteer for a least one volunteer time slot.

Sellers who volunteer at our sale will receive 75% of their sales vs. 65% for sellers who do not volunteer.

Shifts are limited and fill up quickly. Sign-up early.

Volunteers who take a shift on Thursday (during drop-off and/or room organization) will be able to set aside some items for purchase and pay and leave with them that day.  This doesn't mean you have an uninterrupted hour to shop. It means should you see something come in or while you're organizing, you may purchase it. 

We also always need help on Saturday from 8:30 am - 4:30 pm.

Our sale is organized and staffed by 100% volunteers.  If there are no volunteers, there will be no sale.

Due to increasing volumes of consigned items, we highly encourage consigners to volunteer Saturday 1:00 pm - 4:30 pm in order to sort through all consigned items for pick-up in a timely manner.

3. Know what items are wanted and which are not accepted 

 

Information is on our Selling Tips page (there are new changes highlighted in pink). Our sale is known for the quality of our items. Clothing and shoes should be in like-new condition.

Consigners are limited to consigning 300 clothing items per gender. (ie. up to 300 girl clothing items, and up to 300 boy clothing items)

 

4. Work on preparing your items for sale

 

  • Clothes must be on a plastic hanger. With the front of the garment facing you, the hook should point left like a question mark.
    (No wire hangers accepted) 

  • Fasten matching garments (tops and pants) together with safety pins so they stay together. 

  • We highly recommend putting shoes in Ziploc bags.  Shoes should be in excellent condition.

  • Wipe down plastic toys and baby gear.

  • We highly recommend grouping books together in plastic bags by age, theme, character, etc.

  • Secure puzzles.  We recommend using Glad Press 'n Seal (wrapped around the entire puzzle both ways and secured with tape) because it keeps the pieces in place without ripping off the paper.

  • All games and puzzles must have all their pieces.  Crafts should be brand new or nearly brand new.

  • Items requiring batteries should have working batteries.

  • Please sort your clothing items by gender and size prior to drop-off.

 

5. Enter your inventory online and create tags for your items. 

 

See our tutorials on our Selling Tips page for help.

 

  • Returning consigners, you'll need to move some of your unsold inventory to "active" status. 
    Read more on our Selling Tips page.

  • Do your best to provide an approximate clothing size.  If we don't successfully place it with similar-sized clothes, it won't sell. 

  • Read through our pricing guidelines to determine your prices.

  • Discount Option.  Item by item, decide if you want it to be discounted 50% during the half-price sale on Saturday from 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm.  If you choose to allow an item to be discounted, do not intentionally mark up the price!  We highly recommend allowing ALL of your items to be discounted.  There are far less shoppers during the half-price sale than at our advance and general sale earlier in the day on Saturday.  Why would someone buy a full-priced item during the half-price sale?  And do you really want to put those items back in your basement?  If your item is still there at 12:30 pm on Saturday, give it every opportunity to sell by marking it for discount. 

  • Donate Option.  Item by item, decide if you want it to be donated at the end of the sale if it does not sell (you will NOT pick it up).  An image of a hand will appear on your tag designating it as a "donate" item.  If you mark an item for donation, the item must be marked for discount as well to give it a final opportunity to sell.  Sellers are eligible to write-off the value of any unsold items that are donated at the end of the sale.

  • Important:  If you do NOT wish to pick up ANY of your unsold items, then ALL of your tags should be marked for Discount AND Donate.

 

6. Secure your tags to your items

 

  • Print your tags out (one at a time, in batches or all at once) on white paper.  See our tutorials on our Selling Tips page for help.

  • For clothing, tags should be SAFETY PINNED OR TAGGED WITH A GARMENT GUN WITH FASTENERS NO LONGER THAN 1 INCH to the upper right edge of clothing. 

  • For other items, please TAPE tags to baby equipment, toys, etc.  You should also tape tags onto plastic bags containing items such as shoes, books, puzzles, sheets, etc.  Clear packing tape works best.

  • We are not responsible for tags which have fallen off.  Don't miss out on sales - be sure your tags are secure.

 

7. Drop-off your items

 

Thursday, October 3rd 2019 12:00 pm - 7:00 pm

  • All sellers will drop-off using the "exit" doors on the side of Nomads near the Red's Tavern entrance. 

  • Note, if you plan to pick up your items on Saturday you must take your bin HOME and return with it on Saturday. We have nowhere to store sellers' bins at Nomads.

  • We will go through your inventory after you drop it off, and we reserve the right to refuse any item(s) based on its condition, age, and/or space and storage considerations.  If it is determined that an item is not to be sold, you will be able to pick it up at the end of the sale if you did NOT mark it for donation.  If you DID mark it for donation, it will be put aside for donation and you will not be given the opportunity to pick it up. 

 

8. Shop the Sellers-Only Presale

9. Pick-Up of Unsold Items

 

Saturday, October 5th 2019  3:30 PM - 4:30 PM 

 

  • Doors will be closed from 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm to allow us time to sort through items. 

  • If you say you will pick up your unsold items and don't by 4:30 pm, $10 will be deducted from your sale proceeds (in addition to your participation fee). 

  • Any items not picked up on Saturday will be donated.  If you do NOT plan on picking up ANY of your unsold items, and wish anything unsold to be donated, then ALL of your tags should be marked for Discount AND Donate. 

  • Should any of your items have the barcode cut off from the tag, this means that the item was rejected for sale because of its condition (i.e. tear, stain, hole, etc). 

10. Watch your sales grow!
