Thank you for another successful Clothing Sale!

Wow! What a sale! Thanks to everyone that come out to volunteer, consign and shop! We appreciate you spending some of your weekend with us and hope you found some awesome deals! Mark your calendars for our Spring 2018 sale on March 16th and 17th!

For consignors: we just wanted to give you some insight into the numbers you’re seeing on your consignor homepage: if you sold items during the discount period, your total sales WILL NOT be correct. This is because everything that is sold during the discount period shows up on your end as being sold for full price. Don’t worry, though! We have the correct sales totals on our side! You will be able to see those totals in the sales breakdown that is included with your check. Please don’t rely on the numbers you see on your homepage to indicate what your check will look like. We know this is an on-going problem and hope to figure out a solution soon. Thanks for understanding!  If you’d like to see a report of your sold and unsold items, login to our consignment website.  If you need a donation receipt for your unsold items that you did not pick-up, Donation Receipt.
