Fall & Winter Sale: November 8-10 Omar Convention Center

Consignor Information for Fall 2012

Happy Tagging!

 
The three of us are doing the same thing you are doing . . . . . so we know how exhausting it can be!  But once you receive your check you will know that your hard work paid off!
 
Firstly, we are only accepting barcoded tags this season.  
THE ONLINE TAGGING INPUT SYSTEM WILL SHUT DOWN ON Tuesday, September 11 at 7am.  :0)
 
SOOOOOOOOO--enter all the items you want to sell at the Fall sale PRIOR to the above date and time.  After the system closes you will still be able to PRINT tags, just not enter additional items.
 
This letter is to let everyone know---especially our newest consignors----what to expect when you drop off your items :)
 
IMPORTANT:  Go into your portal (where you end up once you login and enter your userID and password) and MAKE SURE YOUR ADDRESS IS CORRECT!!!! THIS IS IMPORTANT BECAUSE THIS IS WHERE YOUR CHECK WILL GO!!!!  ONCE THE SYSTEM "CLOSES" YOU WILL BE UNABLE TO ALTER YOUR ADDRESS.
 
We offer two drop off days this year: 
 
Monday, September 10th is for appointment drop-off only, and is runs from 5pm-8pm.
Tuesday, September 11th (9am-7pm) is by walk-in OR by appointment (sign up for a check-in appointment by click on "check-in" times from within your portal.  Your portal is where you end up after putting in your userID and password.)
 
1.  When you arrive to drop off your items, bring your signed "Consignment Agreement" that can be found and printed from off the charlestonrepeats.com website, under the "consignor" tab on the left-side of the screen.  It is the last item you will see under "consignor."
 
3.  Come to the table that will be located outside on the right-side of the Omar to "check-in" with Heather or another volunteer in a white apron and she will direct you in the next steps.
 
4.  As you put all other items OTHER than CLOTHING and SHOES in the correct spaces on the floor, the clothing inspectors will be looking through your clothing and shoes.  They will be looking at the following things regarding your clothing:
      
a.  does the consignor adhere to the 15 items or fewer per size/per gender for sizes premie through 2T (you MAY have more than one item on a hanger and sell it as a bundle--they are mainly looking at hangers)
      
b.  are the items on the hangers facing the correct way (have the outfit facing you as the hanger looks like a question mark) with the tag on the left shoulder of the item (if you were wearing it/ie. as you are facing the item, you would pin it on your right side)  Still confused? (see the Charleston Repeats facebook photographs on pinning items). Seasoned consignors---pin tags the way you always have =)
      
c.  did the consignor place masking tape inside the clothing items with his/her consignor number on it so that if the item were to fall off the hanger we could get the item back to the consignor?
      
d.  is the item in season?  in style?  clean?  not stained?  not ripped?  not on the "not accepted" list? etc.  We want the Lowcountry to be impressed with your high-quality items.

Fall clothing? What constitutes "fall" clothing at Charleston Repeats?

GREAT question and Yes!  We do agree that it stays warmer here for longer than up North, but due to the size of our great location at the Omar Convention Center, the three of us have had to put our heads together and make a list of what we are going to accept at the fall sale versus the spring sale.  If you don't see an item listed below say, like pastel shorts, or swimsuit, or seersucker pants, then that means we consider those items to be spring/summer items.

Thanks so much for being on top of your A-game, already beginning to tag and asking awesome questions!!  An email will be sent out this weekend for consignors regarding drop-off/pick-up/etc. so be on the lookout!

Letter to First Time Moms: Fall 2012 Presale Bash Info

Okay all you frisky mommas!   Are you excited about the upcoming Presale Bash?  :)  IT IS WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 12th from 7PM-10PM at the Omar Convention Center, Mt. Pleasant, SC :) The three of us would like to take this opportunity to do some housekeeping/information gathering/information giving :)  So PLEASE READ THIS EMAIL CAREFULLY!!!

1.  A couple of you have had some questions regarding the process of FTM registration/how many people you can bring/ whether or not you can bring a stroller etc.  So, to clear things up . . . . . .   

a.  if you are receiving this email you are one of our FTMs! :)  We (Charleston Repeats--here in Charleston) use an AWESOME software system called MCM (my consignment manager--in Atlanta) that holds all the information online tagging, volunteers, FTMs who sign up etc.  If you need us (Elizabeth, Heather, and Amy) email us directly at charlestonrepeats@hotmail.com . . . not MCM.  We LOVE answering your questions about the sale :)  

b. If you are receiving this email, that means you may bring ONE guest with you . . . . . any one of your choosing--you do not have to register them too.  

c.  If you are receiving this email, that means that your name will be on a list at the Omar Convention Center in Mt. Pleasant, SC on Presale Bash night :)  We WILL check you off our list.  We do NOT just let everyone/anyone in.  You are SPECIAL TO US!!

d.  You may start lining up at the Omar whenever you choose, but you will only be allowed in on Wednesday, September 13th at 7PM.  The sale lasts till 10PM sharp.  Bring a eco-tote to collect your goodies OR even BETTER--a laundry basket with a belt or cord looped through the holes to pull around behind you throughout the hall---your shoulder will thank you for this!!  There is---too much to see---travel light!  

e.  Strollers are NOT ALLOWED AT ALL Presale Night.  You may bring a stroller with you on Public Shopping days. We respectfully request that you bring your children with you on the public sale days.    

f.  We accept Visa/MC/Discover/and cash--no checks.  

g.  You will not have to carry large items around with you (like pack n plays, strollers, etc.) We have a "Big Ticket" process for these items.  Ex.  You spy a stroller you want?   Flag down a CR volunteer.  He/she will put a number (say, 222 for ex) on the stroller, and have it in the back for you to pick up once you have paid, they will give you a blue ticket with #222 on it, and put the price tag (that now has #222) on it up at the registers.  When you get to the register, you will say, "I have big ticket #222!"  We will then, get the price tag, ring you up and you will pay.  We will stamp your card to prove you have paid.  You will exit the main sale with your clothing, shoes, smaller items, and then present your "yes, I paid!" card to the lady/man behind the building.  

How is the sale set up? When you walk in . . . . . .

Registers are at your right with toys/puzzles/games/infant feeding supplies in front of them on lots of tables.  Behind the tables are exisaucers, bouncers, pack-in-plays, etc. and to your far, far, right will be the strollers.  

On your left will be clothing . . . . boys clothing first then girls further out.  Behind the clothing on the right are shoes and maternity wear with gates/tents/dvds/cds/and room decor behind them.  

In the middle will be costumes, followed by sports equipment and diaper bags.  

On the stage will be rugs and room accents, bedding, and blankets.  

Helpful hints . . . . . .  

Go ahead and think about what you need now . . . . size?  how old will your little one be in January?  (ex. need 9-12m boy . . . .and 3T girl)  What size shoes will you need?  etc.  

Bring a bag . . . . we do NOT have carts for you to use.  

Travel Light when you arrive . . . . LOTs of other moms, dads, friends, aunts, etc. are shopping too.  

Think through your purchases BEFORE you get in line.  The people behind you will not like waiting behind you while you think carefully over each outfit at the register.  We have sorting racks throughout the hall for this purpose.

We are sooooooo excited that you are going to be with us very soon!  YEEEEEEEEEE! :)

The CR GALS

Three Weeks to go--What to do?

So, you've registered to consign and there are about three weeks to go.  Wow!  Presale night (Wednesday, September 12th) and public sale days are creeping up on you (September 13-15th) and you are not sure what to do?  Feeling a little overwhelmed?  Well don't!  Here is a breakdown of the way you new (and old) consignors can approach this last month with less trepidation and even anticipation :)  I am telling you once again---WAITING TILL THE NIGHT BEFORE TO GET IT ALL TOGETHER STINKS!! If you attempt it, I promise that it will be the last time you do it that way because it is too much to do in too short a time and you will be tired and cranky on drop-off days (Monday, September 10th from 5-8PM by APPOINTMENT only OR on Tuesday, September 11th from 9AM-7PM)

COUNTDOWN:

WEEK 3, PART ONE:  Get all your items together that you want to sell this week.

In older blogs you will find a "room reminder" that will bring to mind items that you can/should sell.  But just take time all this week to go from room to room, cabinet to cabinet, drawer to drawer and closet to closet finding clothing, shoes, toys, books, safety equipment, sporting goods, dishes, costumes, jackets, puzzles, room decor, etc. that your child does not need/use any more AND that is in great/pristine condition.  You don't have to freak out about it, just every day take a room or two and pull ALL that you find that is able to be sold into ONE area (your staging/ready to prep area) like the dining room table, the corner of your guest room, etc.

WEEK 3, PART TWO:  Get the items cleaned and ready

Missing button on that shirt?  Sew one on or put in a Goodwill pile (we will not accept without it).  I personally do not take the time to sew on buttons prior to sale, with school in full swing, and the sale to prep for, if it doesn't have a button I put it in my Goodwill pile.

Wash all clothing that needs to be washed.  Stinky clothes are yucky clothes.  Use stain remover to get out stains--oxyclean, etc. (see stain removal guide on our website if you want).  Still cannot remove that formula stain from that darling smocked dress?  Put it in the Goodwill bag.  Got the stain out? GREAT!!  Iron the dress if needed and put it on a hanger (wire or plastic) and hang it up (in a closet, on a drying rack, etc.)

Find all the pieces to that puzzle.     Clean the glass on that pretty picture frame.     Get the dirt off the soccer cleats.

WEEK 2:    Enter all your treasures into the online tagging system and get your cardstock to print on. Remember--from now on we are ONLY accepting BARCODED TAGS---no more handwritten tags will be accepted.

I like to get out my laptop (we have wireless) and take to my staging area and just start tagging away on the online tagging.  It looks something like this:  2T Boys   White Polo long-sleeved shirt with khaki old navy cords and navy sweater vest (yes, I lump it all together if I can for I feel like sets tend to sell better and YES, all that would count as one "item" and YES you can either pin it/hang it on one hangar or tape two hangars together) Donate: yes  Discount: yes  Price:  13.00 (that is just a price I whipped out of my head--sounds good for all that--I'd pay 13 for all that--you might choose $20  another person might put $8--it's up to you!)

WEEK 1:  Print out and affix cards to items and put masking tape with your consignor number on all items so that if the card fell off we could track the item back to you and hopefully match the lost card with the lost item.

I like to put all my books/videos in a bag (the tables at drop off are near each other).  Put all my toys together.  And then I rubber band like sizes and genders together (all 3t girls clothing rubber banded together.  All size8 boys together, etc.)

Grab your signed consignor agreement (online under "consignor agreement tab) and stuff into the car.  Take all Goodwill items to the Goodwill on the way to Charleston Repeats drop off day! (September 10th from 5-8 by APPOINTMENT only OR September 11th from 9AM-7PM--at the Omar Convention Center, Mt. Pleasant.)

OTHER ODDS AND ENDS:

PLEASE, PLEASE read "accepted and non-accepted items" BEFORE you clean and prep and print and prep a tag for an item that we DO NOT ACCEPT :)  You will be frustrated with us when we turn a car-seat away that you have worked hard cleaning and prepping and stuffing in your car.  But sweet mamas we don't accept them and never have (on the not accepted list)  You will find the whole experience of consigning either with us much more enjoyable if you Goodwill a cute dress with a tiny button missing rather than attempting to bring it to consign only to have it turned down.

Make your tags descriptive enough that we can match it up with your item if the tag happens to become detached from your item.

Attach the pins to your clothing items VERTICALLY :)  And have it go through the card ONLY ONCE :)  (easier for you to affix and for us to remove that way).  See the photo at the top of this post as an example.

Make sure all your pieces/parts of your toys are SECURELY taped together.

Drop off days for the Spring 2012 sale are ONLY ON Monday, September 10th OR Tuesday, September 12th, at the aforementioned times!!!! :)  (We will tell you "we are so, so very sorry, but we cannot accept your items if you try to bring them on ANY other day/time)

Pick up day--if you choose to not donate---is SUNDAY, September 16th FROM 1-4.  If you come at 12:58, you will find the door shut because we are still getting ready for you awesome peeps!  We open at 1 SHARP!  Arrive at 4:02, your items will have already been picked up by our awesome charities to bless other Lowcountry families.  These charities are lightening fast quick!!

As always, if you have a question, email us at charlestonrepeats@hotmail.com :)

 

Greetings New Consignors :)

WELCOME all NEW Charleston Repeats' CONSIGNORS!!! We are soooooooooo glad to have your fresh-faced enthusiasm with us for the Fall sale and we would LOVE if each and every one of you would consign in the Spring, and next Fall, and over and over!  Since we want to do everything we can to make this experience as fun and pain free as it can be :)  I am taking this opportunity to tell you the basics (just an overview) of consigning with Charleston Repeats.  

Image

1.  Pretty much everything you need to know is on our website: www.charlestonrepeats.com.  Every now and then a snappy momma comes up with a question/point/comment/issue that we have never thought of before and then we add that to the website for the next sale.  But all the major questions regarding the sale like, "when is drop off?"  "how do I price my items?"  "may I use fuschia hello-kitty paper to put my tags on?" etc. are answered on the website.  We went through MANY, MANY hours writing the website, thinking through issues like, "you need to print your tags on cardstock," (why? because the paper tags fall all over the floor and then we are unable to sell your item for you), so PLEASE READ THE WEBSITE :)

2.  How does this consignment thing work?

a.  you have many items that your child no longer wears/plays with/etc. and you would like to make some $ . . . . . .soooooooo you

b. gather all your goods together and after reading through our list of accepted/non-accepted items you create several piles (bring to Charleston Repeats, throw away, Goodwill, give to your niece, etc.)

c.  for the Charleston Repeat's pile you clean up/fix up/put together all the puzzle pieces, wash and iron all the cute long-sleeved polos and smocked dresses and get them ready to sell.  Remember that 99% of people will want to buy items that are presented in the nicest way.  Iron wrinkly clothing, package your child's bedding nicely as per the website instructions, etc.

d.  gather up your tagging/prepping materials (see back blog)

e.  prepare all your items--hang clothing/bag toys/etc.

f.  prepare your tags by using our online tagging system.  You get into the online tagging system by logging into your "portal" (where you go once you enter your userID and password).  We are NO LONGER ACCEPTING HANDWRITTEN TAGS.  Suggestions on pricing can be found online.  USE CARDSTOCK and pin the pins vertically :) (not horizontally) and put the pin through one time.  Our Facebook page has photographs to see regarding pinning/packaging of items.

g.  put all your items in your car and bring your SIGNED CONSIGNMENT AGREEMENT FORM (found on our website too) under the "consignor" tab you will see "agreement form"

h.  drop off your goods either on Monday by appointment only (go to your portal to make an appointment time) or on Tuesday by appointment or by walking in at any time during the drop-off period (see current calendar online).

i.  all consignors receive 2 passes for consigning to the Presale Bash on Wednesday :)  Make sure you come shop!  Bring an eco-tote, laundry basket with a string tied through it to pull behind you, etc.  since Charleston Repeats does not have shopping carts.  We accept Discover/MC/VISA and cash.

j.  encourage everyone you know to come shop too!  Think about it:  More shoppers = more $ in your pocket!!

k.  come to the 50% off Presale Bash on Friday evening (check current calendar on the website).

l.   if you choose to donate all your items, you can sit back and enjoy watching your inventory grow as we meticulously enter all the tags from the sale. If you wish to pick up unsold items, come back to the Omar on Sunday, between 1 and 4 pm SHARP!

m.  we will send out checks within two weeks after the sale ends, so deposit your hard earned moolah!  (Many consignors say that they make more than they spend every sale :)

EXTRA TIDBITS:

Volunteers shop earlier than consignors, and FTMoms, but we try to make it fun.  You will definitely be expected to help with the sale and not just talk on your phone, chit-chat, etc. but the time will fly by for there is so much to do!  We have MANY, MANY repeat/veteran volunteers . . . . . they realize that the effort is worth the shopping early pass! To volunteer, sign up in your portal.

Store up supplies like safety pins, cardstock on sale, hangers, etc. throughout the year . . . . save all the materials from the clothing you will buy this Fall to sell your items in the Spring.

For pricing, I always think to myself . . "how much would I spend on this?"  I would rather it sell than bring it home!

Preparing your items takes time . . . . . .DO NOT WAIT TILL THE LAST MINUTE! or you will probably be :(

Seasoned consignors have learned to only bring their best, in-season, clothing and shoes to the sale.  A few new consignors have been frustrated at their first drop-off because we have turned away soiled, torn, out-of-season items they have brought.  ONLY BRING YOUR BEST.

I always tell my new consignors: "the first time is the hardest" and it is true ONLY because you are having to learn the ropes . . . . . but after the first time, you will not have to READ the WEBSITE as meticulously and you will soon be a PROFESSIONAL consignor who LOVES the sale coming around every year :)

As always, after you have read the website and have any questions/comments/confusion still PLEASE ask before you get to the Omar for drop off.  We are here to help and assist you through this!  YOU CAN DO IT!

Taking Control of the Toys Before They Take Control of You

You may be thinking, "I really want to get all of these toys out of my house because the clutter is driving me bonkers!" but then another question soon follows, "how am I possibly going to find all the pieces of that Disney puzzle?" or "where did that other doll shoe go?" or "where is the remote for the motorized car?" I am actually asking myself those questions as I go around the house.  But this season things are easier than they were last season, and than they were the season before that because 1.  my children are getting older and 2.  the more I consign the easier it is and 3.  the more I consign, the less I have to weed through.  I have come to embrace Spring cleaning and of course, Fall Cleaning too!

My children used to dread the words "the sale is coming up!" as I would scoot from room to room picking up clothing, toys, books, and shoes, but as my children age, they actually are telling me "Mom, you can sell this to somebody else, I really don't play with this!" and that is SUPER COOL!!   Here is how I approach the lost toy situation in order to prepare for the sale:

* I grab a trash bag for the trash that I will find in my travels as well as have 3 boxes/laundry basket, plastic containers, etc. stationed in the hallway outside the bedrooms. The baskets are designated: another room in the house, the Sale, or charity (those items that are not pristine enough to resell but are still in working condition).

* I first make up the beds in the house--the bed serves as the springboard for sorting. I then go from room to room, having the following gameplan:

1. I pick a corner and move around the room in a clockwise fashion.

2. As I go, I throw away any trash or broken toys that I find.

3. Every toy I pick up I ask myself the question, "Does my child play with this? How often?" Or now, I ask them, and they tell me!  If the answer is yes, I put it on the bed. If it is missing pieces, I make a mental note of the toy. If the answer is no, I place it in one of the three baskets in the hallway.

3. I continue around each room in this fashion. Eventually, I will take the basket of misplaced toys (not "misfit" toys of Rudolph fame) and reassign them to their proper room. For a while, toys will be in that basket until I am done with the task of re-filing them.

4. I then venture out to other places where toys accumulate--the car, the laundry room the back porch, etc.

5. I then wind up with toys the kids love, in their rooms, and two baskets (usually amounts to lot more than two baskets), more like two piles: Goodwill and the Sale pile.

6. For those toys being sold, I put batteries in them, wipe them off with a Clorox wet-wipe and put all loose pieces in a ziploc bag.

7. As the Sale approaches, I type in my items into the automated tagging system, print off my tags, and affix them to their proper toy.

I then sit back and enjoy the de-cluttered space around me! Ahhhhhh! Spa-like tranquility---at least till right before the Spring Sale! :)

School Bell is About to Ring!

Every May I cannot WAIT for my three kids (10,9, and 6) to be out of school for the summer. I long for those lazy, long days spent at the beach, pool, with family and friends. Then, before I know it, school is about to start up again and soon after July the 4th I am reminded about all the things that will need to happen prior to the first ring of the bell. It is definitely a shock to my system as well as the kid's systems. Here is my list so far anything I've left out? What do you guys have to do to get prepared for the beginning of school?

--new uniforms/clothes

--new school supplies

--new book bags/lunch boxes

--get in the dentist appointments

--update the shot records

--get their hair cut/coiffed again--pool hair leaves my kid's hair looking more like straw

--start putting everyone in bed earlier and waking up earlier (ouch!!)

It'll be here before you know it!!

Howdy, Y'all!! Are you in the midst of sortin' and stuffin and taggin and such? Well, I'm not either as my family and I are still busy with company coming into town, pool dates, and beach romps, but IT IS COMING; furthermore YOU ARE NOT GOING TO WANT TO MISS IT!! We've got lots of new sweets and treats this season (ex. 8 hour volunteers who also consign will recieve $5 back on their checks, and 12 hour volunteers will receive $10 back) as well as some major changes that we went over in a previous email (if you did not receive that email, just write us at charlestonrepeats@hotmail.com and I will get it out to you. One of the BIGGEST changes is that we are NO LONGER ACCEPTING HANDWRITTEN TAGS, so what that means is that the number one thing you gals and guys should do is ENTER ITEMS NOW and then chaotically print them and affix them before drop-off.  Online tag entry ends on Tuesday, September 12th at 7AM. Registration counts are SUPERB!!!  So, if you have yet to register, don't dilly-dally as we will not be able to maintain a "waiting list" this season. Please be sure to check your emails, join us on Facebook, and re-read the website OR if you are a newbie, read it for the first time :) We are excited about seeing all the nearly new duds, and toys, and books, and shoes, and more that you are readying to wow us with!!

You will find lots of changes this season, as usual.  We learn from year to year what works and doesn't work on our end/your end/etc. and always value your sweet comments and suggestions.  With all that said, we want to take this opportunity AHEAD of the registration day to let you know of some of the biggest changes/additions.  Please make sure you read the website too.
If everything goes as planned, registration will open 12AM July 1st and run till Friday, September 7th at 11:00 p.m. (Or sooner if all spots fill up!)
The sale is still at the Omar Convention Center in Mt. Pleasant, SC and will occur the week of September 12th (Presale Bash Night).  See sale schedule atcharlestonrepeats.com for the full schedule!!
1.  The schedule this season is like last season.  We now have drop off on Monday evening, September 10th (BY APPOINTMENT ONLY) in addition to the Tuesday, September 11th drop-off (by appointment or walk-in).
2.  We will END DROP-OFF of items for consignors promptly at 7PM on Tuesday, September 11th NOT 9PM as in years gone by. (See schedule at charlestonrepeats.com)
3.  Consignors now have a MINIMUM dollar amount of $35.  To participate as a consignor you must now bring in at least $35 of goods.  
4.  Volunteers are the absolute backbone of Charleston Repeats.  We absolutely could not do what we do without our super-specacular volunteers!!!!!!  Therefore, VOLUNTEERS get to shop EARLY, AND they also get a DISCOUNTED consignor registration fee!!! (if they register to consign).  Register as always, paying the $15 consignor registration fee and if you volunteer for 8 hours you will be credited back $5 on your consignor check.  12 hour volunteers will be credited back $10 :)  VOLUNTEERS ROCK!!!
5.  "Early Bird" consignor registration has been discontinued.  We want to explain why this has occurred and the reasons are three-fold.  1.  We found that MANY people signed up for a discounted rate and then were no-shows "well, I only lost $5 by not getting my stuff ready." and yet we were telling people who truly wanted to consign that we were full (because on paper it looked like we were!)   2.  Little birdies let us know that people were paying $5 only to procure consignor passes and never consigning a thing (also keeping true consignors from signing up--hence the $35 minimuml).  3.  Prices keep creeping up and up on our end on every ad we purchase to bring in shoppers, to rental fees on tables, to the gas we pay for to transport the racks.
6.  We heard you guys at drop-off and as you were shopping and many of you are still hankering for the maternity wear!!!!  So . . . . . even though we told you all at drop-off in the Spring that we are no longer taking maternity . . . . we are :)  Bring 5 (no longer 10) of your best maternity items to sell!!
7.  NO MORE HANDWRITTEN TAGS!!!!!  All tags must be entered on the online tagging system that we use, so pay attention to when online tagging ends: 7am, Tuesday, September 11th and go ahead and ENTER your items first so that you can spend those last few hours pinning tags, not entering/pinning them.  We know this may be scary for the few of you that still solely handwrite your tags, but it really is a BREEZE to do the online system. Just shoot us an email if you get really antsy.
Be sure to read over the website as always to look at some other tidbits of info we've added.  We have some super-duper fun surprises in store for you guys too! :)  One of them will be announced over Facebook in the next few days--maybe even today---, so "like" us today so you don't miss out !! :)
Sincerely,
Heather, Elizabeth, and Amy
Charleston Repeats

Spring Sale 2012~~What a sale!

Image Here are some of the comments we have received about the Spring 2012 Sale :)

Thank you and we're very much looking forward to your spring sale!!  We had our first baby girl on 23 December - what a Christmas we had!!  We got great items at your fall sale and really appreciate the hard work and coordination it takes to put this on.  We hope to continue to be apart of it as long as we're in Charleston. 
 
I just wanted to thank you for adding the appointments for drop off yesterday.  I had an appt and it went to smoothly and was so quick!  I have 2 small kids and I am usually with at least one in line at drop-off it is quite a headache!  This was so great!  I will sign up early again in the fall if available.
Thank you so much for doing this.
I had a great time yesterday and got some really good stuff!!  You ladies continue to amaze me with how well the sale runs, ec.- GREAT JOB!! 
I just want to say...as a "newbie"...I was majorly impressed just checking in on Monday and Tuesday!! You guys are efficient as all get out and I was impressed at how organized it was. I expected to be there a long time dropping off, but was very much excited that it took less than 15I minutes!  Thanks for all your hard work, ladies!
Once again - great sale!  Thrilled with all of my purchases from yesterday.
Look forward to coming back tomorrow for one more look.
Kudos to all of you for putting on a great event!!
Thank you all for everything that you've done this past week.  We know you 3 must be exhausted, but the sale has been awesome.  Thank you, thank you!!
thanks so much for all your hard work on the sale!
You girls did a fabulous job!!!
 I was once again amazed at the efficiency of the pre-sale process.  This is my 5th sale... I can officially say you all have become a well oiled machine.  I would not continue to go through all this effort  and preparation (it's as much work as a garage sale) if the process and professionalism was anything different than what I experience each sale. 
Way to go!  I hope your efforts were very fruitful.
thanks for another great sale.
Thanks again for another great sale!
Great job with the spring sale!

Pricing Guidelines

So, you've got a 3T pair of Tommy Hilfiger khaki pants and a 3T button down white polo shirt and a light-yellow sweater vest for your little guy to wear to church/wedding/etc. and you are wanting to know how to price it?  Well, your wait is over, below you will find a helpful pricing guide!

BUT FIRST READ THIS!!

Pricing your items is as subjective as what people consider a "good buy" is subjective--everyone feels differently about things.  For example, I personally don't care about my children wearing designer brands.  As long as they look sharp/clean/cute/etc. they can wear any brand.  When I am shopping for them, I don't look at the brand-name, I look at the item and then the price.  Not everyone is like that.  Some people look at brand first, then the item, then the price.  There are some people who only come and shop Charleston Repeats on 50% off day, looking for the deals of the century, while there are other people who work over 12 hours volunteering and drive over two hours to volunteer and shop only for Lily Pulitzer. . . . . . . the world is filled with a range of people whom have differing tastes/expectations/price points/etc. SO . . . . below is a RANGE of pricing for a variety of items.  You will have to decide if you want to

be a risk taker and

a.  sell your item at top dollar and risk not selling it and having to pick it up on Sunday, but maybe make the most for your item

be a middle of the road risk taker

b.  sell it at a mid-range price, lowering your risk of receiving it back on pick up day

be a non-risk taker

c.  sell it at an amazing price, assuming it will sell, and making maybe not a lot for the item, but "something is better than nothing"

IF YOU ARE DONATING YOUR ITEM(S), PLEASE CHOOSE TO DISCOUNT IT ON 50% OFF DAY.  TIS BETTER TO MAKE SOMETHING FOR YOUR ITEM THAN TO DONATE IT WITHOUT MAKING NOTHING!

Below are items with a range of prices that I have seen come through the Omar.  You are able to price each item at WHATEVER price you desire!  Whether or not your item sells depends on PRICE you set/SHOPPERS that see your item and are looking for your item/QUALITY and CONDITION of your item/ SCARCITY of your item (a million khaki shorts on the rack?  prices will need to be more competitive.

The 3T boy's outfit from above        12-24

Peg-Perego high chair, 2 years old   40-74

Lily size 8 sundress (purchased for 85 a year ago)    20-38

Set of 8 Bernstain Bear Books        5-10

Pair of red crocs                            3-7

DON"T WAIT TILL THE LAST MINUTE!!!!

Recycle, Reuse, Repeat! Be a Charleston Repeater!

I keep hearing the same verbage everywhere I go, "times are tough, man," "how's business going," "yeah, we are having to cut back," and more of the same. Times are tough right now. Businesses are closing. People are losing their jobs. We are all having to cut back on the more frivolous expenditures and re-evaluate our budgets and what we want versus what we need. Putting on the brakes can be hard, but I believe that the downturn in the economy has the possibility of creating positive changes. Case in point: recycling. Image

Through the years, I have come to realize that many of my friends know how to recycle plastics and aluminum, but do not know what to do with their children's outgrown items. Hosting garage sales, selling to consignment stores, and giving them to other moms have been the most utilized ways of disposing of their things, but none of those ways have produced sufficient funds for my friends.  My friends also want to buy quality products for their children but often complain about spending too much time in the car frequenting second-hand stores and department store sales.  Most of the time, they spend lots of money on clothing or items that will barely be worn or played with before their children outgrow them. Becoming tired of the cycle, I looked for a consignment sale that would provide me with money for my goods and save money for my new purchases. 

It has been a blessing to me for the past seven years to be a part of a consignment sale that I could sell my children's toys, games, clothes, shoes, furniture, and the like to other mothers that I know will use them and enjoy them. It has also been a blessing to me to make money from my children's items that I have sold.  Since I also buy all of my children's items used I essentially never "buy" goods for my children.   I earn enough selling their used merchandise to buy more. At the last sale, I actually made more than I bought!  It may take a little effort to get all of my children's items together, but when I receive my check two weeks after the sale, it is worth it.  

We all need to remember that recycling is not only for milk jugs, tin cans, and newspapers, that can be recycled into new materials,  but also for children's clothing, shoes, toys, furniture, etc. that can be regifted to a new owner.  Recycling barely worn children's clothing and gently used children's items is not only a gift to other mothers but also to the planet. By reusing these goods you will be helping to save the earth's valuable resources and the expenditure of labor that it takes to produce new products.  By "repeating" your resources with other mothers you will be helping the planet to be a greener place while also helping other parents to save the green in their wallets as well as in your own.   By recycling your children's goods and buying from other Lowcountry parents you will also be contributing to the local economy.  Charleston Repeats provides a great opportunity to help on so many levels!

I am so glad that all of us who have children have the opportunity to share our children's gently worn clothing used items with each other through Charleston Repeats! With Charleston Repeats, you can rest assured that your children's items will be reused, replayed with, reridden, and remembered by other mothers who want them.  Other moms will handpick your items for their own little ones.  Your efforts of pricing and tagging your goodies will be rewarded with cash in your wallet.  When you shop the sale, you will be saving money too on great items for your tot to teen.  Volunteering will awards you with priority shopping, plus you get to meet new friends and feel a sense of ownership in the Sale.  Being a Vendor or Sponsor or Palmetto Pack Provider will introduce your business to the parent community or further solidify your place in the community.  Remember, it takes all of us working together: consignors, shoppers, volunteers, sponsors and vendors to create a better sale for you and for other mothers in the Lowcountry!  Also remember that it takes all of us working together to give back to the community, and the planet.  Recycle your children's items and regift to another mother as well as to mother earth.  Go green.  Get more green.  Save more green with Charleston Repeats!

Wow! You guys come from all over to see us at Charleston Repeats!

Here are just some of the cities that will be represented by sweet consignors, frisky First Time Moms, and vivacious volunteers.  Some of you come from "far off!"  Thanks for driving down, over, or up to see us! We feel honored to have each and every one of you!

A Word for New Consignors

WELCOME all NEW Charleston Repeats' CONSIGNORS!!!

We are soooooooooo glad to have your fresh-faced enthusiasm with us for the Spring sale and we would LOVE if each and every one of you would consign in the Fall, and next Spring, and the next Fall.  Since we want to do everything we can to make this experience as fun and pain free as it can be :)  I am taking this opportunity to tell you the basics (just an overview) of consigning with Charleston Repeats.  

Image

1.  Pretty much everything you need to know is on our website: charlestonrepeats.com.  Every now and then a snappy momma comes up with a question/point/comment/issue that we have never faced before and then we add that to the website for the next sale.  But all the major questions regarding the sale like, "when is drop off?"  "how do I price my items?"  "may I use fuschia hello-kitty paper to put my tags on?" etc. are answered on the website.  We went through MANY, MANY hours writing the website, thinking through issues like, "you need to print your tags on cardstock," (why? because the paper tags fall all over the floor and then we are unable to sell your item for you), so PLEASE READ THE WEBSITE :)

2.  How does this consignment thing work?

a.  you have many items that your child no longer wears/plays with/etc. and you would like to make some $ . . . . . .soooooooo you

b. gather all your goods together and after reading through our list of accepted/non-accepted items you create several piles (bring to Charleston Repeats, throw away, Goodwill, give to your niece, etc.)

c.  for the Charleston Repeat's pile you clean up/fix up/put together all the puzzle pieces, wash and iron all the cute polos and smocked dresses and get them ready to sell.  Remember that people will want to buy the items that are presented in the nicest way.  Iron wrinkly clothing, package your child's bedding nicely as per the website instructions, etc.

d.  gather up your tagging/prepping materials (see previous blog)

e.  prepare all your items--hang clothing/bag toys/etc.

f.  prepare your tags--either use our online tagging system by accessing your "portal" (where you go once you enter your userID and password) or by handwriting them.  Suggestions on pricing can be found online.  USE CARDSTOCK and pin the pins vertically :) (not horizontally) and put the pin through one time.  Our Facebook page has photographs to see regarding pinning/packaging of items.

g.  put all your items in your car and bring your SIGNED CONSIGNMENT AGREEMENT FORM (found on our website too)

h.  drop off your goods either on Monday by appointment only (go to your portal to make an appointment time) or on Tuesday by appointment or by walking in at any time during the drop-off period (see current calendar online).

i.  all consignors receive 2 passes for consigning to the Presale Bash on Wednesday :)  Make sure you come shop!  Bring an eco-tote, laundry basket with a string tied through it to pull behind you, etc.  (Charleston Repeats does not have shopping carts).  We accept Discover/MC/VISA and cash.

j.  encourage everyone you know to come shop too!  More shoppers means more $ in your pocket.

k.  come to the 50% off Presale Bash on Friday evening (check current calendar on the website).

l.   if you choose to donate all your items, you can sit back and enjoy watching your inventory grow as we meticulously enter all the tags from the sale (this feature is only available for those consignors who enter online tags).  If you wish to pick up unsold items, come back on Sunday, between 1 and 4 to pick up your items.

m.  we will send out checks within two weeks after the sale ends, so deposit it!  (Many consignors say that they make more than they spend every sale :)

EXTRA TIDBITS:

Volunteers shop earlier than consignors, and FTMoms, but we try to make it fun.  You will definitely be expected to help with the sale and not just talk on your phone, chit-chat, etc. but the time will fly by for there is so much to do!  We have MANY repeat volunteers . . . . . they realize that the effort is worth the shopping early pass! To volunteer, sign up in your portal.

Store up supplies like safety pins, cardstock on sale, hangers, etc. throughout the year . . . . save all the materials from the clothing you will buy this Spring to sell your items in the Fall.

For pricing, I always think to myself . . "how much would I spend on this?"  I would rather it sell than bring it home!

Preparing your items takes time . . . . . .DO NOT WAIT TILL THE LAST MINUTE!  

Seasoned consignors have learned to only bring their best, in-season, clothing and shoes to the sale.  a few new consignors have been frustrated the first drop-off they come to because we have turned away soiled, torn, out-of-season items they have brought.  ONLY BRING YOUR BEST.

I always tell my new consignors: "the first time is the hardest" and it is true ONLY because you are having to learn the ropes . . . . . but after the first time, you will not have to READ the WEBSITE as meticulously and you will soon be a PROFESSIONAL consignor who LOVES the sale coming around every year :)

As always, after you have read the website and have any questions/comments/confusion still PLEASE ask before you get to the Omar for drop off.  We are here to help and assist you through this!  YOU CAN DO IT!

 

 

 

 

Consignors: Materials Needed to Begin Tagging

lores_supplies03 I am still in the process of culling the clothing my children can no longer fit in as well as all the items that they have grown out of playing with like books, toys, and movies. It truly is not spring for me until I have spring cleaned their stuff and made some extra cash! Twice a year I not only have to go around and gather their stuff (and then hide it so they don't insist that they will surely perish without that toy they have never played with), but I also have to make sure that my consignor basket is stocked with all the necessary tools of a consignor:

Rubber bands--used to rubber band the hangers together for all the same size and gender clothing (ex. all 2T girl's clothes will have a big rubber band around the hangers) Safety pins--1 inch or larger--no tiny gold ones--used to pin pants onto the hangers, to pin the tag on the clothing items, can be used to pin shoes together (through the laces) Masking tape--to tape my consignor number to the inside of all clothing items and shoes and toys in case the tag falls off the item the staff will still know who the item belongs to Clear packing tape--to secure ziplock bags filled with toys and other goodies and to tape hangers together that are being sold as one unit (ex. want to sell two shirts for one price? you may tape the two hangers together) Hangers--I use the cheap metal ones that I collect from the cleaners all year. Big Ziplock Bags--used for larger items and blankets Smaller Ziplock Bags--used for all sorts of stuff--toys, utensils, bibs, etc. Pad of paper--to write down any notes to myself (ex. find the other red shoe, don't forget the swimsuits!) Cardstock for tagging--NO regular or colored paper allowed . . . . the regular copy-paper tags are too flimsy and our scanner is not able to read some of the colored cardstocks

My laptop--I LOVE the online barcode tagging because it is easier for me to type all the information in and I love to know what items have sold.

Once my basket is filled and my items gathered all I have to do then is sit down and tag. It doesn't take a long time to tag as long as I have my basket of supplies ready to go. I keep them there from year to year and just refill it as needed! Super easy!

Oh---I also keep scissors in the basket in order to trim off any loose threads!

What Clothing Do You Accept at the Spring Sale?

What a great question!  And VERY relevant considering the warm weather that we have for a VERY long time in the Lowcountry.  To better assess the type of materials and colors that would be appropriate for the Charleston Repeats' Spring Sale and the clothes you should hang on to  for the Fall sale, think to yourself . . . . . .
