You, the consignor, will need to choose a drop-off time slot to come to Common Threads on Tuesday of sale week to bring all your things, receive a quality check, and place them on the floor with our help.
Please utilize the closest parking spaces available when you arrive.
Then you will bring all your items to a drop-off station(table), where a Team Thread member will begin checking your things for our quality check-in step. We are looking for stains, tagging issues, hanger placement, etc.
After we give the OK, you will begin placing your items directly on the sales floor (racks, tables, bins) in the correct locations. Don't worry; everything will be marked to ensure organization.
After you finish, you will need to sign a contract, and THAT'S IT! We try our best to make it as quick as possible, and Team Thread will help you rack all your items with your assistance. We ask that you help until all your items are on the floor and in the correct location, which usually doesn't take more than 30 - 60 minutes.
After you register and you will begin entering 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."
If an item is marked "donate: YES" and does not sell at the end of the sale, it will be donated to one of the Common Threads' local' charities. These donations go to helping our community!
The Giving Closet of Union County is one of our favorite local charities and has been taking our donations for the last several sales. Please consider supporting our community in this way! I love what The Giving Closet 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.
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 afternoon- the last day of the sale.
As a seller, you need to come to the sale on Saturday and find your things. We will have "check-out" tables set up where you will need to stop and we will double-check that you have your tags only and you will sign a release waiver.
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 communicated to me before Saturday evening.
