Shoppers are looking for the verybest bargains! We encourage you to price your items to sell! You will sell more and have fewer items to pick-up after the sale!
We strongly recommend that you mark your items to be discounted. Items marked "Discount: Yes" will be sold at 25% off at the end of the sale week and at 50% on the last day(s) of the sale. However, do not set your original price higher assuming it will be sold at the discount. Our full-price days are our biggest sale days and your item may get overlooked if the price is too high.
Consider marking your items for donation! All items marked "Donate: Yes" become property of The Clothesline at the close of the sale. Local charities, including Pass It On, Little Sisters of the Poor, Mercy Mall, Goodwill, Children's Museum of Richmond, churches, and other community organizations benefit from your generosity.
Consignors who donate all of their unsold items will receive half of their consignor fee back through a gift certificate good for this sale! Items must all be tagged "Donate: Yes." The consignor must notify The Clothesline prior to the start of the sale. This incentive is not valid for consignors who decide to donate items after the start of the sale.
Again this sale, we will hold a Team Member Appreciation Sale for Team Members only. Team Members will be able to purchase up to 10 items marked "Donate: Yes" for 75% off. The Team Member Appreciation Sale is Sunday during pick-up.
You may print your tags in batches as you go, or all at once. The system saves your information automatically. Tags print 8 to a page.
Login to your seller's account and go to Print Tags. Then go to Generate Items List. You will then see your inventory list. Check the items for the tags you want to print. There will then be a link to download the file that has your tags. It's simple!
You must print you tags on cardstock paper (60-67# weight). Do NOT use regular paper.
Please use the "Normal" or "Draft" print setting. The "best" quality print causes barcodes to bleed, making it difficult to scan them. Barcodes should look crisp and clear.
To attach the tag, punch a hole in the top of the tag and use a cable tie, string, or ribbon to attach it through the garment's sewn-in label, a button-hole, or belt loop. Or you may use a safety pin to attach the tag to the right side of the item (as it faces you on the hanger). Please attach the tag to the upper right side or to the garment. Do NOT attach to the bottom hem.
You may pick up your unsold items during the designated time or have them donated. Once the pick-up time ends, all items remaining will be donated regardless of whether they are marked for donation or not. Our charities come to gather the remaining items and we have to vacate the facility.
Team Members are a huge part of a successful sale! Please consider helping during the Women's Sale. We love to reward our Team Members to show our appreciation!
If you are a registered consignor, you may register as a Team Member through your seller's page. Just log on and click on the link. You will see the list of available shifts.
