See you this fall!

What forms of payment do you accept?  We accept cash, debit, and credit cards--VISA, MasterCard and Discover. Personal checks are not accepted, thank you for your understanding. 

Is there an admission fee to shop at the sale?  Nope! We want you to save your money for the amazingly great items inside our doors at the sale! Entry is FREE!

How often does 406 Consignary have a sale?  We have events in 2 cities twice a year--one in the Spring and one in the Fall.  Joining our mailing list or click SALE INFO SIGNUP and we promise to keep you posted on upcoming dates!

What is your return policy?  All sales are FINAL. No exchanges, no returns.

Why do you give Volunteers and Consignors a Special PreSale Pass?  Basically... we love them, they're amazing, and the rock! And mostly also because, without them, there would be no sale.  Period.  It takes MANY people to coordinate and organize a sale of this magnitude and it's our little way of saying Thank You <3

Can anyone sign up as a volunteer and attend the Friday PreSale?  Yes! You must be a Volunteer or Consignor in order to earn a PreSale Pass.  Children must be at least 18 years of age to volunteer.

Will dressing rooms be available?  No, there will be NO dressing rooms available.  You may consider bringing a tape measure and your child's measurements with you.  We will NOT allow shoppers to try on items in the bathrooms at the sale.  NO EXCEPTIONS!!

Consignor Questions

Who receives the Donated Items?  We work with several charity organizations in town that will love to have our donated items. We want to support our local families.  

Why don't you accept stuffed animals?  I have so many I could put in the sale.  Actually, that is one of the main reasons.  ALL of us have lots of stuffed animals and we could fill an Ark with them.  If each Consignor only brought 5 stuffed animals--with just 100 consignors we would have 500 stuffed animals!  Yikes!  Again, please do not be offended if we pull any stuffed items that may have been dropped off for the sale.  No matter how cute they are, we can't let some in and exclude others.  Stuffed toys that are battery operated are acceptable.  We consider them to be a toy.


What if I am missing an item?  Does 406 Consignary pay me for the item?  Unfortunately, items do walk off the sales floor.  406 Consignary is not liable for any missing items.  We can only pay Consignors for the items that sold.  Please know, we do everything we can to keep this from happening.  Since we do not physically check in each and every item, it is impossible for us to know what was actually brought to the sale.  Please do know, 406 Consignary will always do our very best to ensure that your items are safe and cared for.

Miscellaneous

Do I have to volunteer or stay for the sale?  No, you are welcome to volunteer during the sale, but it is not required. All you need to do is price, tag, hang and deliver your items--we help you organize and display and then sell your items for you!

Can anyone sign up as a volunteer and attend the Volunteer PreSale?
 Yes, however volunteers must be 18+ to earn points towards a PreSale Pass or Consignor earnings account. You may sign up for a maximum of three (3) volunteer shifts.

Please understand, children that are helping need to be a minimum of 14 years of age. No young children can accompany you during a volunteer shift. Thank you for understanding.


What if I can't make it to my shift?  If your life changes, you have the option to go online and cancel your volunteer schedule.  We simply ask that you do this no less than 7 days prior to Drop-Off day.  If you need to cancel after that time, you will need to find your own replacement.  In the unlikely event that you do not fulfill your volunteering responsibility or find a replacement, a $25 fee will be deducted from your consignor check.

Volunteering

Who can consign their items and become a seller?  ANYONE can consign their children's items.

What percentage of the sales do I receive?  Consignors receive 70% of their sales, less a $10.00 registration fee. Volunteers with 3 or more shifts will earn 75% and not be charged a registration fee. Full Volunteer Perks Listed Here!

 

What types of payment are accepted at 406 Consignary sales?  We accept all major credit cards: Visa, American Express, MasterCard, Discover. Debit Cards, and Cash. We do not accept personal checks, thank you for your understanding.

Will I keep the same consignor number for all sales?  Yes, you will keep the same Consignor ID number. You can also reactivate any unsold inventory from previous sales without re-tagging the items!


What if I forgot my consignor number or my password?  No worries! Go to the CONSIGNOR LOGIN button at the top of this page, click 'log in to your account'.  Then, click 'Forgot your consignor number or password?  Click Here'. The system will ask for your email address or your consignor number.  Your information will be immediately emailed to you. If this option does not work for you, feel free to contact us and we will be happy to generate a fresh login for you!

When will I receive my consignor check?  Some sales we will have earnings checks ready Sunday at Pick Up. We will mail all consignor earnings within 1 week of the sale. Please make sure the mailing address we have on file is correct :) Cash your check within 60 days of the end-of-sale so we can unlock the system for the next event! Lost checks have a $35 fee if they need to be reissued. 


What happens if an item of mine doesn't sell?  You have the option to pickup any unsold items Sunday evening after the sale, 6:30-8PM. If you would rather not pick any items up, you may select 'donate' in your consignor area when pricing & tagging your items. Items not picked up by 8 will be donated by default.
 

Shopper Questions​​

Will you accept all the items that I drop off?  We ask that all items be clean and free of stains, odors, tears, pet hair, etc. and in working condition.  We want to keep a high standard of gently-used consignment items at our sale. Please, no hard feelings, if we do not accept an item or if we pull an item from the sales floor. It is easy to miss something while getting your items ready at home. {We know because we have had to pull some of our own items!} We will be inspecting all of your electronic and battery-operated items before you set them out on the sales floor on Drop-Off Day. All electrical items will be plugged in to ensure they work.  Also, all DVD's, cassettes, CD's and VHS will be inspected. Please review here for accepted items, and here to see which items we cannot accept.

Do I need an appointment to drop off my items?  Yes, please log in and make a pre-arranged appointment to drop off your items. It also tells us that you know when Drop-Off Day is.  It will take approximately 30 minutes to set up your items at the sale. For every 150 items, please sign up for an additional drop-off shift.

What if I forget to pick up my items on Pick-Up Day?  ALL items not picked up on the last day of the sale will become property of 406 Consignary.  Pick-Up Day is VERY busy!  We are simply unable to hold onto all the items which are forgotten.  We wish we could, but it is merely an impossible task.  Additionally, our contract with the venue states that we need to have the building emptied by Sunday night.  Please keep in mind you may send a friend or family member to pick up your items for you.


Totes? Boxes? Yes please! At your Drop Off Shift please leave a plastic tote, cardboard box, etc (marked with your consignor #) to hold your unsold items for pickup on Sunday night. If you're planning on donating any unsold items - please don't leave a tote with us.


ZERO EARLY BIRDS!  We always hope things go well with the number of helpful volunteers we have with sale take-down. We cannot and will not accept any early birds during Sunday Night Pick Up. Anyone who requests this will risk not being permitted to reconsign the following sale. If you want items to be ready early- help out and we will all get things wrapped up sooner ;) Consignor Pick Up is scheduled for Sunday 6:30pm - 8pm.

Drop-Off & Pick-Up Days

Where can I get hangers?  Ask any clothing store--sometimes they have extras. Dry cleaners are another good place to buy hangers inexpensively. Stores like Kmart, Shopko, Target, DollerTree, etc. all sell plastic hangers.

What kind of hangers can I use?  You can use wire hangers or plastic store hangers.  You are welcome to use nicer hangers, but we have no way of returning your exact hangers to you.  Please understand, any exact hangers that you use will not be returned. All shoppers will keep their hangers with any item they purchase. 


Must ALL of my clothing items be hung up?  Yes, clothing items that are hung up sell so much better than folded on the table.  For this reason, your items must be on a hanger.  ALL clothing items need to be hung with the hanger facing left (like a question mark).  Pants and jeans can be clipped or pinned to the hanger.  See Pricing and Tagging.


How can I hang up pants?  Simply safety pin them to the top part of the hanger (see example).  Do not safety pin pants to the bottom part of the hanger because they slide to one side and are easily overlooked at the sale.


Will I get my hangers back after the sale?  Nope. Because we have thousands of items consigned each sale, it's literally impossible to keep track of who-brought-which hanger. We allow shoppers to keep hangers if they'd like to. If there are leftover hangers on Sunday evening at pick-up time, you are more than welcome to help yourself to the number of hangers you brought in. First come, first serve- when they're gone they're gone. Please only take as many hangers as items you sold... ie: sold 20 shirts and 2 pants, you may take 20 hangers and 2 pants-hangers.

How difficult is it to enter my items and print tags?  Registering online is quick and easy!  Once registered, you will be assigned a consignor number and can get started immediately.  Our exclusive online tagging system is user-friendly and you can print your bar-coded tags within minutes.  Even if you do not consider yourself to be computer savvy, this system is easy--for EVERYONE!


Do I have to enter my items online all at the same time?  No, you can add items whenever you like 24/7. Monday prior to Drop-Off Day, at midnight, the tagging system will be turned off.  This means that no more entries can be made. However, you may still print tags and view your items until Drop-Off on Thursday. 

Can you explain the categories to me?  When you start entering your items, you will see a drop-down list for the categories.  You will choose the most appropriate category for your item.  This information will give 406 Consignary a rough idea of how many items are in that category for space purposes during set-up and drop-off.  There is also a drop-down menu for size, if applicable. (In the rare event that a tag gets separated from your item, categories & a good description will also help us rematch the tag to your item) 


I am not sure how to make my own tags, can I still participate?  Of course you may!  Anyone who has ever used the web at all will be able to handle this step with ease.  Go to our Entering and Tagging page for help.  Remember to use WHITE cardstock or coverstock (65 lb. and up) when printing your tags.


How many tags print on a page?  Six (6) tags will print per page.  Please do not shrink the tags to fit more on a page.  They will not scan at checkout.

I don't have a printer, what can I do?  You may print your tags at ANY computer (be sure to use WHITE cardstock or coverstock).  You merely have to log in to the website.  We are also happy to print them for you for a small fee. Simply contact us and we can help you out!


Why must I use cardstock or coverstock when printing my barcode tags?  Cardstock or coverstock is much more durable and will not bend and tear like standard paper.  We will be scanning your items' barcodes at the registers, we need to make sure the barcode is readable.  Cardstock or coverstock helps insure that we will be able to scan your item and credit you properly.  If your printer does not accept cardstock or coverstock, feel free to contact us for help.  Staples/Office Depot sells the paper at a great deal.  Maybe a friend or two can even split the cost with you.  Please use white paper only--dark or bright colored paper does not scan. 65lb or heavier for thickness please :)

My friend doesn't have the internet/computer/printer what can she do?  For those few who do not have internet access, we suggest going to a friend's home or the library.


Why must our items be priced at a minimum of $.50 cents and in $.50 cent increments?  The software we use for the online tagging system determines these guidelines.  These are the minimum requirements and we do not have control over those prices.
