Online sale? What?
Here are the details you need to know!
(Please note: as our first online sale, we are still learning and wanting to remain flexible, so some sale details may change. We promise to let you know any adjustments we make and will only make changes that we think will make our sale even better!
Our sale management system has integrated with an online selling platform that we will use for listing the items. These items will be available for purchase during the times listed below.
So basically, you will shop online just like you would any online shopping platform. At checkout you will choose either curbside pickup or delivery, both taking place October 25th and 26th. (Delivery will be a $10 fee and is only for local Manhattan addresses).
Check back soon for a video with a sneak preview of the online store and some tips and tricks!
When can we shop?
October 16th at 6 am through October 17th at 10 pm
What about your half price sale?
Still happening! At 1 pm on the 17th, eligible items will be half price!
But wait, will people get to shop early?
Yes! Just like our normal in person sales, we will have early shopping for volunteers and sellers. We will also be holding a "Midnight" madness presale, watch for details on this soon.
Presales on October 15th
Volunteers: 5:30 pm
Sellers: 7:00 pm
(We are working on an idea for an additional presale to replace Happy Hour shopping, we will keep you posted!)
How will I get my items?:
Items can be picked up curbside October 25th and 26th. Delivery is also an option for a fee.
How will selling work?
-Enter your items in the sale manager system that you are used to. Choose your price, whether or not you'd like it to discount to half price at our half price sale, and if you'd like to donate it when the sale is over.
Changes for online:
-You will need to add a picture to each item, this will be done in the sale management system. These pictures don't need to be professional, just use a simple background and accurate lighting.
-After the online sale closes, you will receive a list of your sold items. You will only need to bring your sold items to the distribution center, no need to haul all your items, and no need to make a second trip to pick up unsold items! EXCEPTION: Sellers choosing to donate ALL unsold items will have special days prior to the online sale when they will be able to bring all items to the distribution center. We will will sort your items, no need to come back for anything!
-We will also need you to pay your $12 seller fee when registering for the sale. JUST FOR THIS SALE you will have this fee refunded if you bring all your sold items (so we will just keep the 35% consignment percentage). You can also have this money refunded as long as you unregister no later than October 10th .
So when do we bring items to the distribution center?
Sellers donating ALL unsold items: October 13-14
All other sellers: October 20-22
Will sellers get to shop early?
Yes! Sellers will be receive a special shopping access code that will allow them to shop at 7 pm the night before the public sale.
Will you still need volunteers?:
Yes! Volunteers will work in very small groups. Volunteers will help us with seller drop off, sorting items to prepare for shoppers, helping with curbside shopping pickup, and clean up. They will be expected to follow all health recommendations and requirements in place at the time of the event including masks and screening prior to their work time. Those who commit to a shift will receive a special access code that will allow them to shop in our volunteer presale.
But... how will early shopping for volunteers work?
Volunteers will get an early shopping code that will allow them to access the sale before the public.
