HOW TO SELL: Sign up for a vendor number as discussed above. Pick up a vendor info sheet, tags and hangers at this time and sign up for a drop-off time. Supplies will be available until the Wednesday before the sale. Each vendor may bring 150 items to sell, so be particular which items you choose and decide on a fair price for each item. (Pricing guidelines included in the vendor info sheet available at signup.)

Hang clothes with hanger hook facing to the left (like a ?) and the tag goes on the right side of the garment when looking at outfit. (see below) Please sort clothing by gender and size (ex. All boy clothes NB-12 & all girl NB-12 separated) Tag items as instructed, making sure your vendor # is on both halves of the tag. (if the tag is not filled out correctly  we can/will not give you proper credit).

Bring items at the drop-off time you signed up for (Weds, Thurs or Fri before the sale.) There is a $7.00 vendor fee deducted from your proceeds to offset supply and advertising costs. (No fee charged for volunteers) As items sell, we tear off the bottom portion, sort all the tags, add your sales up, and issue you a check (appox. a week after the sale) for 60% of this amount, minus the $7.00 fee to participate (if you don’t volunteer).  NOTE: If your item total exceeds 150, additional fees will be assessed. Items that do not sell must be picked up between 5:30 and 6:30 pm the Saturday of the sale or you can designate them for donation when you sign up. We cannot store unsold items. If items are not picked up, they will be donated Saturday evening.
The RED TAG SALE (50% OFF) will be held on Saturday afternoon from 1-3 pm. To designate an item for “red tag” simply use the specially stamped tags. If an item sells at the “red tag” price, the commission rate remains the same based on half of the original price. You may red tag all, some or none of your items. All items will be automatically reduced by 25% during the red tag sale; however, the commission will be deducted from the Preschool, rather than the vendor. If you are planning to donate unsold items, we encourage you to red tag all of your items to maximize your chances for selling them.

Check Pick up: The checks will be available for pick up appox. 2 weeks after the sale. Date to be determined and you will be notified of time and date. If check is not picked up, they will be mailed on the following business day. Tags will be available for pick up only with your check and will be available for pick up in the Administration Bldg for 2 weeks thereafter.

SIZE: Newborn – 12 ONLY. We will accept only seasonally appropriate & stain/tear free clothes.

 RED TAG SALE: If you wish to increase your chances of selling your items, you may participate in the red tag sale by using the tags with “Red Tag” stamp already on the back. These items drop to 50% off at 1pm. This does affect your commission, however, so participation is optional

RESERVING VENDOR NUMBER: If you have items already tagged from the last sale and wish to keep the same vendor number, you can reserve this number by emailing Carrie Brady consignmentsale@hilandpreschool.com BY Feb 26th @ noon, including in the email your address and phone #. After Feb 26th, sign up is on a first come, first serve basis and we will not be able to reserve your number. Otherwise, simply come and sign up early so you get a slot. You must still come in and register and get supplies even if you reserve a number.
