Consignors cannot sell inventory for other people under their ID#. All consignors will sign a waiver and recall agreement to that fact that they are the sole owners of their inventory and are responsible for all items sold at this event and know the items history.

- Schedule a Work Shift(s): 1 Shift (3 hours) mandatory for each Consignor (or add more to receive discounts) and attend the PreSale before the public. We need everyone's help and greatly appreciate all of our Volunteers in making this such a great sale!

It is recommended at the end of each sale to print or save this report to your computer. At the end of each sale this report will be erased for the next event. Email email@example.com for a Donation Tax Receipt and let Melissa know which charity you made donations.

We do not provide replacement checks, so cash them fast before they get misplaced!
