How will drop-off work? 

1. You must make a drop-off appointment on Monday, May 25 or Tuesday, May 26.  Please note that Monday, May 25 is Memorial Day and we wish we had another option for setting up this event but using this additional day is the only safe way to spread out our drop-off hours and keep everyone safe.  You can make your appointment in your account in MyCM under the Drop-Off tab.  If you are picking up your remaining items at the end of the event you will choose a pick-up appointment for Saturday when you complete drop-off.
2. All items must be dropped off in plastic bags or cardboard boxes, no bins that need to be returned.
3. Your clothing must be sorted by size and gender.  It would also be most helpful if your other items are also packed up together - games together, toys together, infant items together etc.
4. All items with non-porous surfaces like hard plastic and metal must be sanitized before drop-off to keep us and our families extra safe.

This might be your favorite drop-off ever because you will just unload your items inside the church, fill out your consignor agreement and leave. Drop and Go!

Are you still inspecting items? 

Yes, we will be super inspectors this event!  

All your items must be in excellent condition because people will be purchasing items without the benefit of in-person inspection.  We are depending on you guys to bring us only items that will help keep up the wonderful reputation of this event for quality items at amazing prices.  If more than 10 of your items are rejected from your drop-off you will be notified and will not be able to participate in any other events this season.

 

On that note, please know that we are going to do our absolute best to make sure that every item dropped off is included for sale.  However, we cannot guarantee that we won’t miss something and it is entirely up to our discretion whether your items meet our quality standards for this event.    Rest assured that all tags are transferable so if you drop-off an item that isn’t quite right for this type of event you’ll be welcome to bring it to our in-person events in June and July.

Will there still be a half-price sale? 

Yes! Friday will be our 50% off sale day.  We encourage you to  include your items in our 50% off event.  Because of the technology we are using to run this event, items not included in our 50% off event must be moved to a different part of our inventory on Friday and may not be as prominently displayed as items that are included in the 50% off sale.  

 

Will consignors be able to shop early, it's one of my favorite perks?!? 

Yes,  we will give consignors early access to our online store every day. However, our live sales on Facebook will be open to all so make sure you tune in and are ready to claim SOLD!

Will there be a dollar dash? 

No, there is no way to safely host that event while social distancing.

 

Will we still be able to leave our remaining items for donation? 

Yes, in place of our dollar dash which raises hundreds of dollars for local charities we will be hosting a "mystery box" sale in our online store of our remaining items during the weeks following the sales.  Proceeds benefit our non-profit partners as well as passing on additional remaining items for donation as soon as our non-profit partners are accepting physical donations.

Are we still able to help out at the event as a Team Member? 

At this time, we will be unable to offer team member opportunities to our consignors for this event.  However, we will need to hire additional staff members to help us out, please message us at ashley@growingkidsmart.com if you are interested in applying for a position with us for the week along with your hours of availability.

What can we do to increase our sales commission if we can't join the team? 

All consignors will earn 60% sales commission as usual on their sales.  Consignors with total sales of over $1,000 will automatically have their sales commission increased to 70%.   

Online selling adds additional fees to all sales therefore we will be unable to offer any additional sales commissions above 70%.

How will pick up work? 

You will need to make a pick-up appointment for Saturday.  The best news - you don’t have to come in and find your items, they will be sorted and waiting for you at your pickup time.  We are still working on the details of this so we'll give you more information as we figure out the logistics.

 

Of course, you always have the option of donating your remaining items at the end of our event. 

I'm registered to sell at the Jarrettsville event too, will that event run the same way?

We just don't know yet where we will be in mid-June but we are still hopeful to have some in-person shopping at both our June Jarrettsville and July Bel Air events.

I'm signed up to consign but I don't think this event will work for me?  Please message ashley@growingkidsmart.com if you'd like to cancel your registration for this event.  We only have a few spots left and we do anticipate that they will fill up.
