FOR SHOPPERS: 

Do you have kids or grandkids? Shop with us for current styles and provide for your growing children at a fraction of the retail cost. There is no fee to come in and shop the sale.

Please note that the dates, times and restrictions for this sale are subject to change as we see what the social distancing guidelines demand as we get closer to the sale date. The health and safety of everyone involved is our highest priority. That is why we are spacing out the sale dates and times more than we have in past sales. We may assign shopping times for smaller groups of shoppers. We have also scheduled two days after consignors have dropped off their items that the sale location will be locked and the entire inventory will sit untouched to help air off surfaces.

Sales Floor – This shift is for you if you’re a “people person”! You may be assisting cashiers by “de-tagging” items at the register, assisting shoppers at our hold bay, straightening racks and rehanging items, assisting shoppers, or assisting with security by checking bags and strollers as folks leave.

Sale Breakdown – This shift is for you if you like to sort and organize and want hangers for our next sale! You will be helping us sort unsold items and packing up donated items.

Please note that volunteer spaces will be filled on a first come, first serve basis.

If you want to volunteer please register here.

Other Information:

Cancellations – We understand that things can happen at the last minute so if you find it necessary to cancel or reschedule your shift we ask that you call to let us know as soon as possible. Volunteers who do not notify us of a cancellation will not be allowed to register as a volunteer for the next season's sale. Please understand that these guidelines have been put in to place to maintain a high-quality sale.

Children – For their own safety, children are not allowed during volunteer shifts. It is a very busy time and it is too difficult to watch out for little ones while we are preparing for the sale.

Drop Off Appointments & Volunteering – We ask that volunteers not schedule a drop off appointment during their shift. Volunteers may do so either before or after their shift(s).
