Volunteers needed!

We can’t run our sale without our amazing volunteers! Sign up to help out with a 4-hour shift and get first crack at shopping the sale! If you’re also consigning, you’ll earn a higher percentage, too!

Volunteer benefits

Volunteers get the exclusive right to shop first! (Up to half of the items at seasonal consignment sales sell during these pre-sales, so this is a big deal.) Plus, if you volunteer one shift, your consignment percentage (the amount you make on your items) goes up to 70%. Volunteering two shifts? You’ll earn 75% and your consignment fee will drop to $5!
