Mt. Bethel Children's Consignment Sale

Consignor Instructions

Welcome to the Spring/Summer 2020 Mt. Bethel Children’s Consignment Sale! Please read these instructions carefully before entering any items into the online system. Email us if you have any questions.

Important Reminders

  1. This sale features quality children’s/tween clothing, accessories, toys, books, furniture, and more for the Spring/Summer season. No Fall/Winter items will be allowed. See our Acceptable and Unacceptable Item list for other exclusions.
  2. Each consignor number is limited to 125 items. Consign your best quality children’s items. Our shoppers are looking for clothing and children’s items in great condition. If you have more than 125 items, you may register for another consignor number. This will require a different email address than your first consignor number.
  3. There is an $8 registration fee per consignor number used. Sale proceeds will be split 70 percent to the consignor and 30 percent to the sale. The registration fee and portion of sales that will go to the sale is tax deductible. The Seller Report and Donation Report, available at the conclusion of the sale, can be used for tax purposes. Be sure to run those reports before June 27, 2020.
  4. You must enter your items, make sure your mailing address is correct, and print your tags and inventory sheets by Tuesday, March 10, 11:59pm.
  5. Checks will be mailed to the name and address listed in your consignor account within a week of the sale.
  6. If you register to consign for this sale and decide not to sell, you must unregister by Tuesday, March 3, 2020. If not, you may not be allowed to consign at the next sale.
  7. Tags must be printed on white cardstock using black ink. This allows our scanners the best possibility to scan the tags at checkout. Do not use colored card stock or regular weight paper for tags. The colored cardstock doesn’t scan well and regular weight paper is more likely to tear and fall off your item, making it harder to sell. Inventory sheets should be printed on regular weight white paper.
  8. The minimum price for an item must be two dollars ($2.00). Fifty-cent increments are allowed.
  9. All items will be discounted by 30 percent on Saturday, so please check the “Discount All Items” option after entering your items. All items will be discounted regardless, but this will allow these tags to be scanned at checkout instead of being manually entered, causing slower lines.
  10. Unsold items that are not donated may be picked up between 4 to 5pm on Saturday, March 14. Please bring your photo ID as we randomly check at item pick-up. Any items not picked up by 5pm will be donated to our mission partners at 5:01pm.
  11. Please consider donating your unsold items. All unsold items that are donated go to support local, national, and worldwide non-profit organizations.

Preparing Your Items

  1. Before the system opens, you can begin pulling together your items, spot cleaning and mending clothes, hanging clothes on wire hangers, washing toys and sports equipment, and making decisions about what you would like to sell.
  2. As soon as the system opens and you register for the sale, you can begin entering items. The system will remain open until Tuesday, March 10, at 11:59pm. You must print your tags and inventory sheets before then.
  3. Organize your items according to the chart below. This will save you time when you enter them into the tagging system. Many of the fields autofill based on the previous entry, so organizing them by Item Type and Category is a huge time-saver.
