We are so excited to bring our amazing sale
to an online platform

We are opening up our super-simple online sale for all the things we do not sell at our in-person sale! Take advantage of our huge shopper list and don’t worry about porch pick-ups. We’ll take care of that for you. Here is how:

  1. Register to consign and enter all your items into your consignor account, including a picture of the item. You do not need to print your tags at this time.
  2. Wait for the online sale to happen and watch your items SELL, SELL, SELL!! You can even keep entering items during our sale as we will upload newly entered items every morning.
  3. Print the tags for your sold items only AFTER they are sold (they include the buyer’s order number), attach them to your items, and drop them off at the designated time and place.
  4. That’s it. (no, really, that’s it)

When and Where:

Shop September 8-14, 2024

Drop off your sold items September 18 or 19

Pick up of orders will be during our in-person sale event.

Returning Consignor Registration

For consignors that have sold with us in the past and already have a consignor number. Welcome back! We are glad to see you again.

New Consignor Registration

For consignors registering for the first time for our sale. Welcome to our sale! We are glad you found us.


Consignors will receive 70% of their total sales. We also pay an additional 10% for all items that sell for $45 or more. There is a one-time
$12 non-refundable consignor registration fee due at registration for new and returning consignors. This fee will confirm your spot as a consignor and allow you to use our online inventory system.

Depending on how many items you sell online, additional fees may apply. Sellers with 1-250 items sold online will not be charged an additional fee. Sellers with 251 – 500 items sold online will be charged an additional $6 fee. Sellers with 501+ items sold online will be charged an additional $12 fee. The fee will be deducted from your consignor payment.

Consignor Check Payments Through PayPal

All our consignor payments and settlements will be made through PayPal. Please make sure that the email address we have on file for you is the same one you use to sign into your PayPal account. Once we generate the payments, your settlement $ will be transferred automatically, and within seconds, to the PayPal account associated with that email address. Payments will be made 14 days after the closing of the sale to allow for possible shopper refunds. You will have access to your money the second we send it. You can either spend it straight from your PayPal account, many online retailers accept PayPal payments, or you can transfer it to your local bank account. There will be no fee charged to you for receiving the money or for transferring it to your local bank account. The biggest benefit to you is that you don’t have to worry about losing your check or driving to the bank to get it deposited. If you do not have a PayPal account or the email we have on file for you is not the one associated with your PayPal account, you will receive an email stating that money is available for you to claim. Simply click the link and follow the instructions to claim it. If you do not claim the money within 30 days, the money will be transferred back to our account, and we will issue and mail a check to you. There will be a $1 handling fee deducted for issuing and mailing the paper check, and keep in mind that this means you won’t receive your money until about 6 weeks after the sale. Claiming it through PayPal is a much easier and faster way to get your money.

How to Tag & Price Your Items

Here are just the most important rules to remember when preparing your items. Not following these rules may result in your items being turned away.

  • You set your own price, there is a $2.50  minimum.
  • You can decide on discount yes/no, but you can not use the double tag option to mark items less than 50% off.
  • Mark your items donate yes/no as you would for an in-person sale. While there is no donation program for the online event if the item does not sell, but you already have it entered correctly for the next in-person sale.
  • All items must be clean, stain-free, in working order, with all parts attached.
  • You do not need to put clothing items on hangers. Bundles can be placed in plastic shopping bags after you take the picture, or wrapped up and secured with a rubber band. Individual items do not need to be bagged, although it is preferred.
  • Include a detailed description of your item, including brand name, color, and style. NO GENERIC DESCRIPTION like “pants” or “t-shirt”. Remember that shoppers can’t inspect the items so the description must include the brand name.
  • Pick the appropriate category from the drop-down menu. The online system will place your items according to the category you pick. If your item is in the shoe category, but it is a toy, it will not be found online by shoppers.
  • Pick the correct size for clothing items! Again, the online system will sort all clothing items according to size. If you do not enter a size, your item will not be uploaded. If you enter the wrong size, your item will be listed in the wrong size online and if it sells and the shopper complains, you will not be paid for that item.
  • Add a picture of the item to your listing. Include a ruler for scale for smaller items like toys. You also have the option to send more images to be added to the online system to us. Instructions on how to do that are in your email tips.
  • You print the tags AFTER the items sold. Tags must be attached with a safety pin or packaging tape/string. Do not use a tagging gun.
  • You can use paper to print your tags, no need for cardstock at the online sale.
  • Check the Consumer Product Safety Commission for recalls.
  • Make sure all items you put up for sale are available for drop off. If you fail to drop off any sold items, a fee equal to the value of the item will be deducted from your check. If you fail to drop off at all, you will not be invited to sell with us again.
  • We reserve the right to refuse any item.

Dropping off your Sold Items

All items sold during this sale MUST be dropped off on Wednesday 9/18 or Thursday, 9/19 by appointment. If you fail to drop off any sold items, a fee equal to the value of the item will be deducted from your check. If you fail to drop off at all, you will not be invited to sell with us again.
