General questions:

Do I have to work a shift if I am a seller?
No. Sellers are not required to work a volunteer shift, but doing so will result in higher profits since sellers who volunteer have the potential to make up to 75% and have their consignor registration fee waived.

Do I have to consign in order to volunteer?
No. Anyone can volunteer (moms, grandparents, dads). You are then qualified to shop early without having to consign.

What happens if a seller signs up for a volunteer shift and then does not show up?
Per the contract, volunteers agree to our No-show Policy: In the event a volunteer does not fulfill their obligation or find a replacement, Fairytale Finds Consignment will deduct an additional 20% of the earnings check from their consignor's commission. Also, the volunteer will NOT be allowed to participate as a volunteer or pre-sale events at our next sales event.

What types of jobs do volunteers do?
There are all sorts of jobs available and something for everyone. You can even recruit the men in your life to help with security detail during the event & assist with large/bulky purchases (this would count as one of your shifts). If you are short on time, you can opt to be a snack fairy (those volunteer shifts will go quickly!!!), post signs to designated areas, etc.

Can I really earn up to 75% on my sold items?
Yes, the baseline is 65% for everyone (except Fairy Godmother tagging service consignors). If you volunteer at the sale, you have the potential to earn up to 75% with your registration fee waived. See volunteer tab for full details.

How much work is it to prepare items for sale?
Proper preparation of items does take time, but it will assure the best results in sales and, therefore, money in your pocket! Our barcode system makes entering and printing price tags a breeze! We encourage sellers to begin preparing early, doing a little each day. Many of our top sellers make over $1000 at our sale, so your efforts can really PAY off! (See guidelines for preparing your items under consign tab). You can also take advantage of our exclusive
FAIRY GODMOTHER TAGGING SERVICE.

Wouldn't I make more money if I held my own garage sale or sold my items on eBay?
The benefit of selling at Fairytale Finds is that we will bring in hundreds of shoppers who are specifically looking for baby, children's and maternity items. You don't have to advertise, haggle over price, have strangers at your home, and you are able to remain anonymous. Plus, you will earn a lot more money than your average yard sale and not have to worry with shipping items. 

How do I know what I've sold? Because of our unique scanning system, you can log into your consignor account each night of the sale to see what you've sold!

Why does Fairytale Finds require wire hangers for all clothing?
Wire hangers make the clothes look nicer and take less space on the racks. In other words, shoppers can easily slide clothes back and forth on the racks while browsing without breaking hangers (resulting in clothes on floor and possible damage to other clothes from the sharp edges). The tighter and more difficult the clothes are to shop, the less likely buyers are to purchase your items.

What if my item is damaged or missing?
While we make every attempt to have our volunteers watch the showroom floor for lost tags & theft, we cannot be held responsible for damaged or missing items. Remember to check our "lost & found" display when you pick up your unsold merchandise for these type things.

Will Fairytale Finds ever sell my email, address, or phone number to other companies? No! This information is for our use only in order to notify you of future events and in sending your earned commissions.
