You only need 15 items - that can include bows, shoes, belts - to become a consignor. Make some money off of clothes your kids no longer wear and you also get to shop early! Simply follow five simple steps.
Step One: Gather
Go through your kids' closets and pick out those boutique-quality clothes that are in excellent condition. The Monkey Exchange accepts a minimum of 15 items; spring/summer clothes for the spring show and fall/winter for the fall show; girls and boys sizes NB to 16; no three-letter monograms; clothes free of rips, stains, missing buttons, etc.; accessories like bows, tights, bloomers, hats, etc.
Step Two: Tag
Don't wait until the last minute! The sale locks at 8 p.m. the night before it begins. Print tags on cardstock. Regular paper WILL RIP as shoppers go though the racks and we don't want your tags falling off! Price: This is completely up to you, but we recommend 25-30% of retail if used and 50% if new with tags. Use standard sizes, like 3m, 12m, 2t, etc. Describe what you are selling simply, such as boy seersucker shorts. Attach your tag with a safety pin to the front right area of the piece of clothing. For accessories and shoes, please put in a Ziploc bag and place the tag inside the bag.
Step Three: Hang
Please hang your clothing with the open end of the hanger to the left. It should look like a question mark, not an S. We recommend using children's plastic hangers. Appearance sells and wire hangers end up looking messy. For pants or shorts, please use a pants hanger with clips or safety pin them to a hanger. Do not fold them over because they don't sell well this way. Don't use clothes pins - they fall off.
Step Four: Drop Off
You don't need an appointment! Drop off your clothes at the North Hills Club Ballroom between 8 a.m. and 12 p.m. on Wednesday, March6. You will need to bring the following items: Clothes (hung, priced and tagged) and your inventory sheet. Register now and email us with questions!
Step Five: Pick Up and Get Paid
You or a family member must pick up your unsold clothing at our show location on Friday, March 8 from 4:30 - 6:00 p.m. No exceptions! If you clothing isn't picked up at that time it will become the property of The Monkey Exchange. You will receive a paycheck in the mail usually within two weeks of the show. You will receive 60 percent of your total sales minus a $5 fee.
