Frequently Asked Questions

As a Consignor, what percentage do I make on consigned items?
You receive 60% of the purchase price of each item sold.

Are there any fees involved to Consign?

Do I have to Team Member?
While we certainly could use your help, we understand that life is busy. You can drop off items and then wait for your check! However, to receive the BEST shopping opportunities at the Sale, it is best to join our team.  Team Members who serve 4 hours or more and also consign earn 80% of the purchase price of each item sold. Team Members also get to shop before consignors.

What may I consign? 
Check out the list of all acceptable and non-acceptable items.

Do I supply my own hangers?
  Yes. You must supply your own hangers (wire is preferred because it takes up less rack space) and safety pins for tagging. All clothing items are sold on the hanger. Clothing should hang with the hanger facing left to make a question mark.

How do I price my items?
You pick the price that you think is appropriate. A basic rule of thumb is to price the item for approximately 1/3 to 1/2 of its purchase price. Consider its condition and ask yourself , “Would I pay _X__ for this item?” Items with tags attached and boutique brands sell for slightly more.

What forms of payment will you take at the sale? 
  We will accept cash, checks, Visa or Mastercard. We will not accept Discover or American Express. You may be asked for ID when writing a check or using a card.

How do I get paid for my consigned items? 
Please bring a self-addressed stamped envelope with you when you drop-off your items. We will use this to mail your check within thirty (30) days of the sale. If you do not provide an envelope, then you must agree to pick-up your check at the church several weeks after the checks are mailed!

Who gets my donated items?
We partner with local charities to receive any unclaimed items. Items are picked up by the charity of choice at the close of the sale and can not be retrieved by the consignor or anyone associated with Berea Kids Consignment Sale.
