Childrens UpScale ReSale
Childrens Upscale Resale relies on our volunteers to run the most successful sales events. There are many different ways that one can volunteer such as:
Set Up: This would be the late afternoon/evening before the actual sale opens. Some lifting is required, so husbands are more than welcome to take this shift and it counts as your volunteer shift.
Check-in Consignor's items: This would be the late afternoon/early evening before the actual date of sale. You will check-in sellers and inspect items to be sure that they are the highest of quality before being put out on the sales floor.
Organizing: This would be the late afternoon/early evening before the actual date of sale. You will organize racks and tables by size and type of items. If you have a merchandising eye, this task if for you!
Greeting:This would be the days of the sale and as people come in, you would greet them or if it's during our VIP sale, you would be greeting them and crossing off their names on the VIP list.
Sales Floor--Monitoring: This would be during the days of the sale. These people would walk the floors and make sure that merchandise is off the floor and in proper areas, helping customers with any questions, keeping an eye on everything and just "being present" on the sales floor.
Bagger: This would be during the days of the sale. These people will help with bagging items, taking hangers off the merchandise and helping the check-out team.
Sorting: This would be on the last day of the sale. These people would sort donated items and not sold items back out by seller number. Ultimately, the consignor is responsible for retrieving their items, but we will have people to help expedite this process.
Check-out: This would be on the last day of the sale. These people help with the check-out process, making sure that the correct unsold items leave with the correct consignor.
Tear Down: This would be on the last day of the sale at 2pm. This is another time that you can have your husband fill in for your volunteer shift, if wanted. This includes just taking everything down and clean-up in general.
Benefits of Volunteering
Childrens Upscale Resale consignors who sign-up and fulfill their volunteer shift are considered VIP. Volunteers who complete their shift(s) are invited to shop before the general public at our VIP shopping times. Our VIP's are also the first to save at the 1/2 off price day (an hour earlier than the general public). If you can't make the early time, you are still more than welcome to come when the general public does, as well.
Childrens Upscale Resale consignors who fulfill their volunteer shift(s) also EARN MORE MONEY! Consignors who volunteer (1) 3-hour shift get an extra 5% of your sales (70% instead of 65%). Those who work (2) 3-hour shifts earn an extra 10% of their sales (75% rather than 65%). That is more money in your pocket!!

*******Please note that any volunteer who does not fulfill/complete their work shift cannot volunteer in any future Childrens Upscale Resale Events. It will also affect your commission rate, as it will revert back to the base % earnings of 65% for anyone who does not complete their work/volunteer shift.
