Becoming a Team Member:
Team Members keep everything running smoothly and are a vital resource; we can't do the sale without you, the team members!
Here is some necessary information on becoming a Team Member:
Consignors, enter your consignor number and password in login (website).
First-time Team Members, use the link under the login to register and set up your account on the website. If you are consigning and becoming a Team Member for the first time, register as a consignor before signing up for shifts. Becoming a Team Member is not required but highly recommended.
Who can become a Team Member?
Anyone! You do not need to be a consignor to be a Team Member. Helping is easy, fun, and we need help every day doing many different tasks.
There are shifts during the day during the sale week, both during the week and on the weekend. Whatever your schedule, we likely have a shift for you! If you can't show up for a shift, we welcome spouses, moms, dads, and grandparents to come to your place so you can still enjoy our pre-sale!
Why become a Team Member?
Get a break from the kids and the everyday schedule *ADULT TIME!!*-
Meet other parents from the area, create new friendships!
Shop before the public sale, shop early!-Help keep the floor organized, so it's easier for customers to shop (so your items sell!)
Without our incredible Team Members, we would NOT be able to coordinate such an exciting sale! Thank you for taking the time to consider helping us at the sale and for continuing support from returning Team Members.
This sale wouldn't be such a success without YOU!

Team Member, Shopping Times

Team Members will only be credited for hours scheduled under a SINGLE registered consignor number for a higher profit percentage. No hours will be combined for multiple consignor numbers.
If a registered consignor has a family member who helps earn a higher percentage toward profit, they must be signed under the consignor number. Use the consignor homepage to sign up for a shift. Once the shift is selected, please email email@example.com to let Lisa know who will be covering the shift for the consignor to receive credit for that shift.
If 2 people from the same family will be working the same shift, you must contact Lisa for approval and instructions on how to sign up.
Pre-sale passes will be per person working the hours and be verified off of Team Member worksheets.
Please honor your word and show up for the shift you sign up for.
