We allow consignors to bring in additional merchandise on Thursday evenings. If you are a consignor and find additional items after you have checked in and the sale has begun – you can bring in your tagged and prepared merchandise on Thursday evening between 7:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m.
- Clothing must be sorted by SIZE and GENDER.
- Please COUNT ALL ITEMS before you come to check-in – we need the number of tags you are bringing in.
- Bring a self-addressed stamped business sized envelope (we like the self-sealing kind.)
- Be sure to confirm your volunteer time and/or sign up to be a volunteer. We appreciate any help you can give us.
- Remember to pick up a yard sign and/or postcards to help spread the word about the sale as you leave the building after checking in your merchandise.
Just to let you know what to expect at drop-off:
When you arrive at the Wholesale Fireworks building, parking is located behind the building. All consignors will ENTER through the door on the southwest corner of the building. You will go through the check-in procedures, paperwork, etc. here.
CHECK-IN TABLE: At check-in we will have a consignor information sheet and waiver for each consignor. You will need to verify the information on the consignor information sheet. Also you need to mark how many items you are consigning (or an approximate number.) This is strictly for tracking our inventory growth for business planning. Please count them ahead of time to save time at check-in. Each consignor will receive an envelope containing your pre-sale pass, consignor 1/2 price pass, and guest pass.
ENVELOPE: You will need to provide a business size self-addressed stamped envelope for us to mail your check after the sale. Please put your consignor number in the lower left corner of the envelope – thanks. If you forget to bring an envelope at check-in, you may purchase a stamped envelope for $1.00.
VOLUNTEER PASSES: If you are planning to volunteer at the sale you need to confirm your work time and trade your Pre-Sale Pass for a Volunteer Pre-Sale Pass. If you did not call ahead for a time but would like to work, check the schedule for available time slots. Also, some bartering jobs may still be available so check that list as well. We will have the work schedule and bartering list posted at check-in.
INSPECTION: You will bring your prepared merchandise in on hangers (we have a few wheel racks you can use for hanging clothes) and we will have tables set up for toys and other miscellaneous items. We will look over your items for quality and proper tagging requirements. (Please no stains, tears, missing buttons, etc. Also, make sure all small parts to toys are properly secured and you have included working batteries in any battery-operated items.) Sometimes the light in the building picks up some stains that you miss at home so please do not be offended if we turn any of your items away. You are welcome to take them home and try to get the stains out and return them to the sale.
You will be responsible for putting your items on the appropriate size racks/tables after we inspect them. We will have separate racks for boys and girls clothing for easier shopping convenience. Sort your clothing by size and gender at home and it will save you time at check-in.
TUBS, TUBS, TUBS: When merchandise is brought in at Check-In on Tuesday and Wednesday, many of you bring your items in tubs. But, at the end of the Check-in period – we have a lot of leftover tubs that consignors have forgotten. If you are bringing your merchandise in a tub, please write on the tub your name and/or consignor number so we can match it up with you at Check-out on Saturday.
The sale will end at 2 p.m. on Saturday. At this time we will be taking items off racks and tables and sorting them by consignor number and separating out any items with a “D” on the tag for donation to charity.
You will need to come back on Saturday, (date to be announced) between 6:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. to pick up any unsold merchandise that you are not donating or make arrangements for a friend to pick up your stuff. We encourage consignors to bring a tub or box to put unsold items in for easy transportation to your vehicle. Sometimes we have boxes leftover that we can use – but if you bring your own it would be appreciated.
Also, we wanted everyone to know the Wichita Children’s Home volunteers are highly appreciative of those items that get donated at the end of the sale. This is a major source of their inventory.
