After you register and enter your merchandise on the website, you will see two options for your items: Donate and the other 50% off discount option. You can donate an item that does not sell by the end of the sale by choosing "Donate: Yes."
How it works: If an item is marked "donate: YES" and does not sell at the end of the sale, it will be donated to the Manna Outreach of Mazeppa or another of Common Threads' local' ministries. These donations go to helping our community! Manna Outreach is an organization run by donations where people in need in our community can shop every month for free. Please consider supporting our community in this way! I love what Manna does, and they thoroughly appreciate the children's clothing. It's an excellent opportunity to give. We have also offered donations to The First Baptist Church of Lewisburg Clothing Sharing Program, DWELL orphan care of Williamsport, and several others, depending on how many items we have.
50% OFF Day
Saturday Is typically the last day of the sale. As a consignor, you have the opportunity
to choose which items are sold at half price. On Saturday, the 1/2 price sale day,
every item that is marked "discount: yes" will automatically be sold at half price.
Most of my consignors participate in this and I would highly recommend that
you discount your items too! This is a great way to raise the overall percentage
of the items you sell. As a consignor myself, I not only want to make money
but empty out my basement. So I highly recommend discounting your items. I also
recommend this option just in case you may have overpriced any of your items.
Don’t forget that you must pick up anything of yours that did not sell and you
did not donate on Saturday evening - the last day of the sale. If for
some reason you can not make that, please let me know in advance. If you
decided not to pick up your items because you sold almost everything, please
let me know with either a call or a text, we are happy to donate your leftover
things. Many consignors find they sell so much that coming back to pick up a handful
of items on Saturday is not worth their time and choose to donate at the last minute.
This is fine but must be clearly communicated to me before Saturday evening.
