How to consign with us:

 

  1. Register as a NEW consignor: If you have not consigned with us in the past, you will need to create a new consignor account. You will receive a consignor number and create a password.   
  2. Returning consignors:register for the current sale using your consignor number from past sales and your password on the return consignor link on the website. The following steps can be done through your Consignor Homepage once you are registered. 
  3. Read and sign your consignor agreement. Every consignor must electronically sign this document to participate in the sale. One Hard copy will be signed during inventory drop off, this will activate your tags. You can print a copy for yourself. 
  4. Sign up to be a Team Member. This is not required, but highly recommended. There are many benefits to helping: consignors who help can earn an additional percentage; lowers the registration fee; shop earlier at the pre-sales.  Without our consignors helping during the sale we would not be able to continue.  
  5. Enter your items into our online inventory system. We do not accept any handwritten tags or tags from other consignment sales.  Our tags are unique to our database, so only our tags will be accepted.  The better your description the more likely we’ll be able to match it in the system if a tag is lost.  Including information such as brand names, colors and styles help sell your items!
  6. Print your tags. Please use white card stock to print all of your tags. It is available at WalMart: Georgia-Pacific Card stock, 8.5 x 11, 110 lb., 150 Sheets. Office Max 250 sheets $15.99 Recycled Specialty Cover Stock, 65 Lb, 8 1/2" x 11", Stardust White, Pack of 250 Sheets. Prices may be different in your area. Tags print 6 to a page.
  7. Prepare your items. Read our guidelines for what we will accept and how to prepare your items for the sale. Clean, press and organize your items. Make sure sizes match – no mismatched size sets will be allowed (2 T pants with size 4 T shirt). Check your items in a brightly-lit room for stains and other issues. The better you prepare (and price) your items, the higher your check will be. All clothing must be hung securely on hangers with the hook pointing to the left, like a question mark. The Consignment Mommies website have great guidelines for pricing, www.consignmentmommies.com. Please check  https://www.cpsc.gov/Recalls  for recalls.   
  8. Tag your items, Note: Items must be tagged using white card stock only. If you are using a tagging gun, attach our bar code tags to the garment’s label or in a right-side seam only. Do not use a tagging gun in any other place!! Items with tags printed on copy paper will be rejected at drop-off.

Consignor FAQ

image13

Why is there a $18 registration fee?

Your registration fee helps cover the cost of the location rental, advertising, insurance, display racks, tables, supplies, etc.

I'm a registered consignor. How do I sign up for direct deposit?

 Please contact Lisa by calling 724-433-8980 to set up direct deposit. You will need access to your email when we do this. Or email me at info@saleforkids.com and we can complete this by email. 

Is there any other way to tag my items, besides online? ​

 No, unfortunately, there's not. We require that all items be entered into the inventory program and tags be printed out because it makes the entire process MUCH easier, quicker and smoother.  

Can we use barcode tags from other consignment sales?

 We are not able to accept other sale tags.  Our tags are unique to our sale; our database will only recognize our tags.

Will I be able to track my sales during the live sale?

No, our program is not set up to track live sales.  Sold inventory reports will be available online when checks are poste

How long until I get my settlement payment?

Please allow 14-21 days after the end of the Teen and Adult sale to receive your profit check.

Do I have to be there to sell my items?

Consignors do not need to be at the sale during all business hours. You are able to earn a higher % if you join our team and help during sale week.. See team member information.
 

Do consignors have to become a Team Member?

 No, but if they do they are able to earn up to  80% profit . When you join us as a team member you are able to see how the consignment sale works. You are able to talk to other consignors and see first hand what sells and how pricing of your items work. We ask for a minimum of 3 hours to help because without your help the sale is not possible. 

Do I have to provide my own tables and racks?

 No. Westmoreland Sale for Kids provides all the equipment. We have the buildings set up in departments for you. All items will be grouped with other like items (e.g., all 2 T boys on one rack) 

Where can I find wire hangers, pins and tags?

 Ask your local dry cleaner for recycled wire hangers. Ask family if they have some from dry cleaning or if they have uniforms cleaned. Westmoreland Sale for Kids collects hangers year around. Call to see if I have any to give out.  If you know someone who wears uniforms to work and their company cleans the uniforms for them ask for the hangers. Safety pins can be found in the sewing section of most discount stores (Walmart, JoAnn Fabrics or in bulk on line). Tape is available in the office supply sections of major stores. Card stock 65-67 weight is needed for printing tags. (Can be found at Office Max and Staples).  

Will I get a Receipt if I decide to donate my unsold items?

 With the donated items going to 3-5 different places at this time I am unable to track where your items are being donated to so a written receipt of your donated items will not be given out.   You are welcome to pick up your items Sunday April 26, 2020 7-8 pm and donate them yourself.
