The volunteer schedule will lock the Sunday prior to the sale and you will not be able to make changes.

VOLUNTEER ROLES:

SET-UP

Set-up shifts are great for anyone who is handy with tools or willing to do some heavy lifting.

 

This will involve setting up the racks, shelving, tables, hanging banners, and getting the floor ready for consignor drop-offs.

         (Consignors! This is a great opportunity to get your husband involved! His volunteer hours will count toward your added percentages

          and early shopping times!)

 

ITEM CHECK-IN & SALES FLOOR ORGANIZATION

Volunteers for these shifts will have a lot of interaction with consignors as they drop their items off at the sale.

 

These volunteers will make sure that the items that are being consigned are clean and in proper working order, they will be checking for stains, rips and holes in the clothing.

 

They will ensure that clothing is hung and tagged properly.

 

They will ensure that toys and equipment is in proper working order and they will be checking items for recalls.

Volunteers for these shifts will also be setting up the sales floor, putting inventory out, organizing sections of the sales floor, and transforming the space into an organized and shopable event.

Volunteers for these shifts must have a keen eye for detail and quality, and they must be comfortable in the event that certain items are not able to be accepted. 

 

 

PRE-SALE, PUBLIC SALE AND 1/2 PRICE SALE DAY VOLUNTEERS

These volunteers are vital to keeping the sales floor clean, organized, and in great shape for shoppers.

 

They may be assigned to any number of roles, including Greeter, Merchandising and Organizing the Sales Floor, Cashier/Check-Out, Sorting, etc.

Individuals interested in these shifts will be the eyes and ears of our sale. They’ll be interacting with shoppers and they will need to have high energy, be engaging and excited to be at the event! 

 

SORT & TEAR DOWN

This is the final step of the event and it involves sorting unsold items into piles for consignors and taking down all of the shelving, tables and fixtures and cleaning up the building that was used for the event.

 

It also includes sorting all unsold items for consignors and charity partners.

This is another great opportunity for husbands to get involved!

Volunteer  Q & A

 

Q: How do I sign-up?

A. You need to go to the volunteer sign up page to create an account. Once the account is created you can log-in and select a volunteer time available. Thank you.

 

Q: Who can help?

A. Moms, Dads, grandparents, expecting parents, aunts, uncles, anyone over 16! Children under 16 are not allowed to volunteer or be with you while volunteering.

 

Q: What if I am expecting, nursing or have a special medical need?

A. We can work with you! Email us and let's work out a plan that works best to meet your need.

 

Q: What type of experience do I need?

A. The only experience needed is helping others with a good attitude. Help other volunteers, shoppers and buyers. We do have training for 15 minutes before we need you, so don't be late!

 

Q: What will I be doing?

A. You can choose once you sign in.  Team volunteers are a huge part of making our sale successful from the beginning to the end. We start by setting up the event, then on to inspecting and organizing before the sale, followed by helping shoppers and checking out buyers during the event. We then pick up and pack up for another sale!

 

Q: What do I need to bring and wear?

A. Most importantly, bring a good attitude and SMILE.  Good shoes are important, but what you wear depends on what you sign up to help with! 

 

Q. Can I bring someone to shop with me?

A. We do allow Sellers to have a buddy pass for a guest to shop at the Seller/Guest presale, (see details) but the Volunteer pass will ONLY admit 1 person.   Have them sign up to volunteer too!

 

Q: What do I need to do if I have a change in plans?

A. The team is counting on you!  You can change your volunteer time up until the first volunteer time starts! (that is unless they are full!) Call us, text us, or email us if there is an emergency and you cannot find a replacement. 

If you do not show, your account will be charged $25 to help pay a last minute replacement.
