Q. When can I drop off my items? A. Go to the Consignor Info page to find the days and times of Consignor Check-in. Please allow enough time to check-in, fill out paper work, and have us inspect your items - usually 30 minutes (depending on the number of items you bring in and those who are waiting ahead of you) and to put your items out onto the floor.
Q. Will you take all of my items? A. All items are inspected to ensure the integrity of the Sale and must be tagged the WeePeats way. See the How To page to learn how. Please do not be offended if some of your items are not accepted. Remember, you too are a buyer, so select and price your items according to your standards. Your items must be complete (puzzles - 100 pieces & less, toys, all buttons, etc.), clean, not broken, or damaged in any way. Clothing must be seasonal. They must also be free from pills/fuzzies, animal hair, odors (smoke, mold), tears, stains, and priced by YOU. These guidelines are to ensure a successful sale!
Q. Is there a limit as to how much I can bring? A. Yes. Unlimited non-clothing items except for books (10 individual books are allowed). Although it's "unlimited" the amount you can bring, each consignor number is only allowed to check-in/drop off ONCE. Clothing items are limited to 100 hanging items per consignor (an outfit w/more than 1 piece on a hanger is still just one item). Shoes are limited to 10 pairs per consignor.
Q. As a consignor do I have to be present at the Sale, man a table, sell my own items? A. NO! That's the beauty of WeePeats;we do it for you. We are a registered retail business which means we pay taxes, insurance, rent and staff the sale for you so that YOU EARN MONEY. Just drop off your items at Consignor Check-in, tagged the WeePeats way - with your consignor number, and get ready to receive your check in three weeks!
Q. How much does a consignor earn? A. Consignors can earn as much as 75%! Each consignor earns 60% of their total sales; 70% if they volunteer to work a 4 hour shift, and an extra 5% if they refer two new consignors who wind up consigning at the sale. (Referrals must note the name of their friend in order for their friend to receive credit. Good for one sale only)
Q. What happens at the end of the Sale? A. If you choose to donate your items at the end of the sale, click on "Donate" when you create your tags. Then we will donate your items to a charity of our choosing (without receiving tax credit). If you want your items back, (to hold for the next sale!) then you MUST pick them up during the designated Consignor Pick-up time. * ALL items not retrieved by the end of Consignor Pick-up WILL become the property of WeePeats.
Q. Will I have to find all my own stuff at consignor pick up? A. If you tag your items the WeePeats way, it'll be EASY! We have a system that will make Consignor Pick-Up a breeze.
Q. When will I get paid? A. You will receive a check (mailed to the address you note when you register as a consignor) three weeks after we close the Event, for the amount you earned as a consignor (60, 70 or 75%).

Tagging & Pricing Your Items:
Q. How do I price my items? A. Items should be priced for an amount that YOU would be willing to pay for the them if you were the shopper. Generally, if you price your items at 25 - 30% of retail (depending on the items' brand, quality, etc.) they will sell. Price competitively. It adds up fast! We STRONGLY suggest you let your items go for half price.We'd rather give you a bigger check than a lot of unsold items!
Q. How do I make my tags? A. Go to the How To page to learn how to prepare your items. Then go to the Create tags page to compose your tags.
