Many people who first hear about a children’s consignment sale want to get involved, but are unsure how to get started as a Consignor. Here are some key steps for a consignor that will give you an overview of how consigning at a Posh Little Closet sale works. As a consignor, you will want to be sure and view all pages under the Consign tab so that you can be fully informed on the process.
Step 1: Register
Register for our active sale. On our homepage, you can select which sale you want to participate in by clicking on the event box. Once you have created a new account or logged into your current one, you will be directed to the Paypal website. This is where you pay your $10 registration fee (you can use Paypal as a guest if you do not have an account with them). * Be sure you complete your registration by returning to PLC’s site after you make your payment. You will know you did this correctly if you attempt to log in right after you register.*
Step 2: Prepare
Prepare your items by gathering items to consign and inspect them well to be sure they are free of all stains, holes, smells or considerable wear… Posh Little Closet strives to maintain a high standard for consigned items so that we can maintain a good reputation with our shoppers. You can then hang the clothing (we accept plastic or wire hangers) and put necessary items in baggies.
Step 3: Input, Print, Cut and Tag
Now you are ready to input your items into our online inventory system (some think it is easier to size your items first). When you are finished, you will load your printer with white cardstock (not required, but highly recommended) and then you will print your tags. Then cut and attach each tag to its respective item using safety pins or a tagging gun. Please view our video ”How to tag your Posh Little Closet items”. The deadline to input your inventory is Wednesday June 27th at 4pm. However, you are still able to print your tags and view your inventory after this time.
Step 4: Drop Off
Drop your items to our sale location on Thursday or Friday, October 9th or October 10th, at your scheduled time. To ensure you get a convenient drop off time, please sign up for one when you register. You can do this by logging into your account and selecting ‘schedule a drop off’ on the left hand side.
Step 5: Make Money
Monitor your sales at the end of each day. You can do this by logging in to our online inventory database from the homepage and clicking ‘sold inventory’. Please note that the updated information is available about two hours after the close of each day’s sale.
Step 6: Pick Up
Plan to Pick Up your unsold items on Sunday evening between 8-9pm. You may have a friend pick them up for you if needed, but my notify us prior to pick up.
Step 7: Box and Roll Over
Box up your unsold items until the next sale. You will be able to roll over your unsold inventory from sale to sale with just a few clicks! This will save you a lot of time as you participate in additional sales.
Step 8: Get Your Check
Watch for your check in the mail. Checks are mailed 5-7 days after the close of the sale. You make a generous 70% of everything you sell!
We are thankful for our many faithful consignors and wish them all great success at each of our events! Remember that the more people who know about a Posh Little Closet sale, the more items will sell and the more money you will make. So share us with your friends, family and neighbors!
