Please see the section "Step Four: Tag Items" which is under "Item Prep" for detailed instructions.
Due to the ineffectiveness of wire hangers we have made the decision to switch over to using only plastic hangers (with notches) at our events. We have listened to your suggestions and think that this change will greatly improve the shopping experience. Plastic hangers will hopefully remedy the problem of clothing falling off of hangers. The hangers must have notches so that they hold clothing on the hanger correctly and white is preferred, but NOT required.
Plastic hangers can be found at places like Walmart, Target, dollar stores, local dry cleaners etc. You can also request to keep hangers from purchases you make at some stores. Due to the fact that we are requiring consignors to use plastic hangers we will also be saving hangers so that we can give hangers back to consignors at the end of the event.
Pricing your items is ultimately your decision, but we do recommend that you price items 25-40% of what you paid for it. We also have a pricing guide that we hope will act as a useful tool to price your items.
Drop off will take approximately 20 minutes, please make sure that you arrive at least 5 minutes early to your drop off appointment. Sort your clothes by size, and make sure EVERY item has a tag attached and clothing is placed correctly on the hanger (See Item Prep page for more details) before you come drop off your items. Our volunteers will check all of your items to make sure they are prepared correctly and that they match up with Scarlet Threads Boutique's standards. If not prepared properly, you will be asked to step to the side and prepare your items in the correct manner. Please do not be offended if an item of yours is not accepted, we will be happy to explain why and give you an opportunity to remedy the problem if possible. After your items are all checked in, you will help our volunteers to place your items in the correct locations on our sales floor. Don't forget to get your pre-sale pass so that you can come and shop early
You can send a relative or friend to pick up your items in your place. Please note that in order for anyone to pick up unsold items they must have the name and consignor number to verify the account, NO exceptions will be made.
Any items that are marked to donate and any items that are NOT picked up before 6pm will be donated to our chosen charity as outlined in our consignor agreement, no exceptions will be made.
While it may seem like a lot of work at first, once you get started you will be surprised at how easy it actually is, and when you receive your check in the mail you will be so glad you put in the work!
Yes, you can still shop early by either volunteering 1 or more shifts or by registering for the "VIP Girls Night Out" event. *Please Note: VIP Girls Night Out passes are allowed entry AFTER consignor and volunteer pre-sale pass hours. Spacing is limited so please be sure to register early.
We will accept Visa, Mastercard and cash. No checks please.
While we love kids our event is geared to be more adult friendly than kid friendly. Take advantage of getting away for a little and have some "you" time. Due to the busy atmosphere of drop off's and pick up's kids are discouraged. Kids will be allowed at your discretion, but it will probably be easier to shop without them.
We will have 5 single person dressing room for trying on jeans and 1 big group dressing area where you will be able to try on other articles of clothing. Please wear undergarments that will make trying on clothes more comfortable, such as tanks, boy shorts, and leggings.
