Thank you for consigning with the Newnan First Methodist Kids Consignment Sale! Please read these guidelines carefully – they contain useful information about how to prepare your items for sale. Volunteers will be screening your items and any unsuitable items or incorrectly tagged items will not be accepted.
Please do not skip the Tagging Guidelines portion of this site. We do not accept incorrectly tagged items – especially those on regular paper. PLEASE USE CARDSTOCK!
Consignors will sign up for a 30 minute drop-off slot within My Sale Manager
. When the slots become available (See Sale Calendar
for date and time this will occur), your consignor homepage will show an additional item on the screen labeled “Drop-Off Appointments”. Click here to select a drop-off time. There will be six slots for every 30 minute period. Because of our limited volunteer pool, if you are more than 5 minutes late for your drop-off time, you will be asked to reschedule. We cannot guarantee that a slot will be available if you have to reschedule because you missed your allotted time.
These slots will not be available until the Friday before the sale – once again, check our sale calendar for the exact time they will open. We are trying to prevent consignors who register but do not enter items from taking a slot that could be used by someone who is actually coming to the sale. Weather permitting, consignors will bring their items to the door of the Parish Hall and remain outside (or in the foyer) while items are screened.
After screening, you will receive your preview night ticket and any items that were not accepted. Please limit drop-off to one or two adults so that people can social distance while waiting.
Items can be picked up from 1:00-2:30 and not before then. Items not picked up by 2:30 on the Saturday of the sale become the property of NFUMC (as per your Seller Agreement) and will be donated at the discretion of NFUMC. We do not track donated items and cannot retrieve them for you. Consignors are responsible for collecting off of the racks any of their unsold items at the end of the sale. NOTE: Any unclaimed items remaining on the racks after the end of pick-up are considered donations to the preschool.
We will sell only fall and winter clothing during our FALL Sale and spring and summer clothing during our SPRING Sale. We accept top quality children’s clothing (in sizes from infant to children’s 14), children’s shoes, accessories, baby equipment, large indoor or outdoor play equipment, bedding, toys (no stuffed animals), books, videos, DVD, and games (board games, computer/video games non-violent only!). We do not accept formula or expiring car seats. The seller is responsible for checking Toy Safety and recall websites before bringing items to the sale.
Select items carefully! All clothing and shoes must be clean and in excellent condition. Clothing and shoes offered for sale should be from the appropriate season. Stained clothing, clothing stored with mothballs, etc., or those smelling like cigarette smoke will not be accepted at check-in and if found during the sale, will be removed from selling floor.
To show our appreciation to our sellers, we will host a Preview Night for those sellers who consign 30 or more items. You will be given a preview ticket to be admitted to Preview Night when you drop-off your items for sale. This is given to you after your items have been screened, so make sure you wait until the entire process has been completed. This ticket admits ONE adult only and no children are allowed in the building. Masks are required if you enter the building.
The barcode system allows each seller to track what they have sold by looking online at the end of each day. We upload our “sold items” file after the sale closes out each day. Your seller inventory list is for your information only and is not an indication of what you have left on the floor. We do not verify that what you have on your list is what you dropped off at the sale. You are paid based on sales only, not based on what is left on the floor when the sale is over. We are not responsible for lost or stolen items.
EXCEPTION: You are allowed to provide a list at check-in of Big Ticket items priced over $30. We will verify which ones you left with us and we keep the list. At pick-up, if the item did not sell and we do not have it on the floor, we will honor the selling price.
Consignors receive 70% of the total from items sold, minus our registration fee (see seller agreement on registration page). Checks will be mailed one week after the close of the sale to the address we have on file for you from My Sale Manager. This address cannot be changed once registration has closed so please check it carefully! Proceeds from the sale benefit the First United Methodist Church Preschool and Kindergarten. Should you have any questions regarding the amount of your check, you have until 2 calendar weeks after the close of the sale to resolve your concerns. Your online seller report will be ready the afternoon after the closing of the sale and will indicate your expected take-home amount.
