We offer consignors the option to pick up their unsold items after the sale or to donate them to local charities. You may choose to select “Donate” as you enter each item online. If you choose to donate, there will be a small “D” on your tags. Only items that are not marked with the “D” will be available for pick up. You cannot change your mind and decide to donate AFTER tags are printed unless you reprint. Once the “D” is on the tag, that is what we will go by as we pull items for donation after the sale.
PENALTY FOR ITEMS NOT PICKED UP
If you did not mark your items donate when you entered them, and you DO NOT pick them up at the designated time, we will charge a $20 sorting fee which will be deducted from your consignor check.
One of the most tedious and time consuming aspects of the sale is sorting unsold items for pick up. Each and every unsold item is touched multiple times as we sort them back into consignor number and then check that each item is in the right place. This process takes several volunteers many hours to complete. In the past, many consignors have not checked donate on their items and assumed that items left after pick up will be donated either way. That means we are spending countless hours sorting and checking their items, and they are ending up in the donate pile.
If you do not plan on picking your items up after the sale, it is simple to check the box “Mark all as Donatable” before you print your tags. If you only wish to pick up a few items, you can check “Mark all as Donatable” and then uncheck those individual items you wish to pick up. We want to honor our volunteers and their time by making sure that items sorted will in fact be picked up after the sale. You can always send someone to pick up for you if you cannot make it during the designated pick up time. You will not be penalized in any way for not donating as long as you pick up your items. Thank you for understanding.
Pick Up Unsold Items Monday, March 27th from 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM @ The Display Building
Any items not picked up at this time will be donated and a $20 sorting fee will be deducted from your consignor check.
When you come to pick up, you will sign in with your consignor number and a volunteer will assist you in getting your unsold items. You will be responsible for loading any furniture that did not sell. There will also be a lost and found area for you to look through in case a tag came off one of your items. Please understand that we do our very best to prevent theft and make sure that all of your unsold items are returned to you. However, with thousands of items of inventory, it is impossible to guarantee that you will get every item back. This is explained in the seller agreement you agree to upon registering. Thank you for understanding.
