STEP-BY-STEP GUIDE TO VALET CONSIGNING

This does not apply to Traditional Consignors (see Traditional vs Valet Consigning for an explanation of the differences)

Please note that we only allow 10 valet consignors for each sale. Valet consignors are also limited to 25 items of clothing (a set, such as a shirt and pants in the same size, can count as one piece).

REGISTER 
Register to be a Consignor HERE. Please email us to let us know that you are choosing the VALET consigning option. The registration fee is $10 which helps cover the costs of insurance, store rental, advertising, etc. This fee is nonrefundable and will be collected when you drop your items off on Monday, date and time TBD. If you don't make at least $20 on your sale, you will not have to pay the full $10 fee. (Please contact us for more information.) We are only allowing
10 consignors at each sale, so register early and be sure to let us know you are choosing this option!

IMPORTANT: After you have registered, email us at BunnyTailReSale@gmail.com and let us know that you are choosing the VALET consigning option.

GATHER
Take a look at our List of Accepted Items to help you determine what you can consign. Gather all your clothing items together, and on a bright, sunny day (preferably by a window), check each item over for stains, holes, missing buttons, faulty zippers and excessive fading or pilling. REMEMBER, we only allow 25 pieces of clothing per consignor (a set, such as a shirt and pants, can count as one piece). Check books for torn or marked pages. Be sure all parts are with games and puzzles, etc.  (On a case-by-case basis, we may decide to allow an item to be sold that is not 100% functional. We will price it accordingly and will make a note on the tag.)  

Please be aware that we will be checking every item for functionality and recalls, and any item that does not meet the standards as listed above will not be sold and will be set-aside to be donated or discarded at the end of the sale.  

PREP
Clean and wash your items. It’s tempting to not iron your clothes, but items that are well presented have a greater chance of being sold. Fix anything that is broken. Double check that everything works (change batteries if needed).  

TIPS FOR CLEANING

Clothes - try OxiClean in the wash

              - combine 1 part Dawn (1 Tbs) with 2 parts each (2 Tbs) of hydrogen peroxide & baking soda for a stain fighting “goo” that rivals any store-bought solutions. Apply to stains, let sit for 30 minutes to 2 hours then wash as usual.

              - apply lemon juice to a stain on a white area and leave it in the sun

Toys     - try a Magic Eraser to take scuff marks off shoes or remove crayon and other marks from plastic toys

Corroded Batteries - throw the corroded battery away, then dip a Q-tip into a little baking soda dissolved in water to clean the corrosion off of the terminals. Try a new batter to see if it works.

DROP OFF
Drop off your items on Monday (date, time and location TBD). We will have a space set aside with your Consignor number where you will place all of your items. You do
NOT need to schedule a drop-off appointment for this time. Drop-off appointments are for Traditional consignors only.

INVENTORY & TAGGING
Bunny Tail ReSale will do all the work for you: check for recalls, enter inventory, set the prices, and tag items. All items will be discounted 50% off for the second day of the sale.
