I told ya’ll this morning that I would be working hard at registering items for consignment this week. Every year I earn more than a thousand dollars just by consigning the extra clothes and toys we have around our house. This year we’ll be expanding to include items that have been left over from our Clean It Out sales, as well.
This is an easy thing that ANYONE can do to save/make money.
Let’s use the upcoming Rhea Lana sale in SW DFW as an example.
#2 – Then collect all of the items you are ready to part with and also as many of these supplies as you have around – hangers, safety pins, white hanging sale tags.
Tomorrow you can actually attend a beginner’s information class at Pirate Coffee Company tonight from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. Not only will they cover all the basics during this hour, but from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. you can also purchase supplies (100 tags for $1.50 and $.20 for each hanger) or pick up marketing materials to hand out in order to publicize the sale.
#3 – You enter the items you are selling into the computer and safety pin a white tag on to the item. It may be easiest to number the tag in order to keep everything in order.
#4 – Between September 11 – 13, you will drop your items off at the Aristide Event Center, 570 N. Walnut Creek Dr., Mansfield, TX, 76063.
#5 – If you sell, you are able to shop early. If you work an few hours to help at the sale, you will be able to shop even earlier. This is one of the best advantages. The earlier you are able to shop, the better deals you will find. Pre-shopping will take place from 4 – 9 p.m. on Tuesday, September 13.
#6 – The actual Rhea Lana consignment sale will run from September 14 and 15.
#7 – I usually do the majority of my shopping at the half-price sale. The workers are able to shop first at 5:30 p.m. on September 15th and the sale continues on until Saturday, September 17th.
#8 – You pick up any of the items that have not sold and you want returned on Saturday, September 17 from 5 to 7 p.m.
Then you get your check and that’s exciting!
You can save hundreds and possibly thousands of dollars by purchasing your children’s clothing and toys from consignment sales.
You can make as much or more by selling what your children are done with. I would challenge you to try it and see how well it will work for you.
