VOLUNTEER SALE: We also are offering a couple of volunteer shifts that are super volunteer shifts. On Thursday and Saturday, we need volunteers to put out the sale yard signs. It is best done by 2 people/one car. You will be given a map and signs. This volunteer spot gets you in at 5pm to shop!
Join us to shop on Thursday evening from 6-8 pm to get the best selection! Volunteer to work one 2-hour shift to qualify. (No non-volunteers allowed to shop at the pre-sale.) Free childcare for children age 10 and younger is provided during your volunteer shift. When you select your shift, add a second childcare shift so we can prepare for your kids. All Childcare must be reserved in advance. If you want to volunteer but not sell, sign up as a seller and pick your volunteer time.
To sign up to volunteer – www.mysalemanager.net/wrk_start.aspx?partnercode=SPSP.
REGISTERING FOR CHILDCARE: Supervised childcare is provided for children of our Volunteer workers with prearranged reservation.
DROP OFF: Drop off is the Tuesday prior to the sale. Bring your tally sheet and tagged items. You will be asked to put the items on racks. It will speed the process if you pre-sort them by gender and size. Clothes and other items will be reviewed for stains and wear.
PICK UP: Items that are marked for donation will be picked up on Saturday. You must pick up your unsold items between 2:00pm and 3:00pm or they will be donated to charity. You may print your donation inventory report online and use it as your donation receipt.
TAGGING ITEMS: You must use our software to produce tags and your tally sheet. All tags must be attached to clothing items with a safety pin (no staples or straight pins). Hangers need to have the hook open on the left side to make it easy for shoppers. Pants and shorts should be attached to the top of the hanger to make it easier for people to see them.
NEW!!! Maternity Clothes: You may sell up to 10 items that are maternity. They need to be real materity clothes and not just something worn during maternity.
Cribs: We do accept cribs. They need to have been manufactored after June 28, 2011. There will be a Born on Date sticker visible on the crib.
Make sure you mark your items as “yes” for discount. All items are 30% off on Saturday. And, be sure to mark each item as “to be donated” or returned. Be as detailed as possible in your item description (For example – Yellow Carter’s Sleeper with Bunnies). We can sometimes find an item without a tag by using our software. Label things as “2-pieces” when appropriate. Attach shoes together in clear bags or with ties to keep them from being separated. Toys, puzzles and games must be in working order and with all pieces. Exceptions must be noted on the tag. Toys with small pieces must be stapled or taped inside a clear bag. We recommend putting batteries in toys to help them sell.
MARKETING: Please help send buyers to the sale! We have flyers that can be distributed at day care facilities and other locations. Include our sale in your FaceBook post and invite your friends to join you.
