Everyone Benefits at Children’s Market!
Earn extra income by selling your children’s gently used items. With your help, we are able to offer top quality items such as name brand clothing, baby equipment, books, DVDs, toys, and much more for a fraction of the retail price. You’ll earn more money than you would with traditional consignment stores or yard sales.
Consignment shopping lets you stay within your budget. Many moms sell their children’s outgrown clothes and use the amount they earned to buy what they need for the upcoming season. It truly is a great relationship for the entire community.
We work with the community to assist with financial needs for families in our area and supports local non-profit organizations through monetary donations and donated items from our consignors. In turn, those charities continue the cycle of helping more families in need.
Community Assistance: If you know of someone who has a need for gently used children’s clothing, toys or other baby and children’s items and cannot provide them for his/her family, please fill out this form. All requests are kept strictly confidential. (http://tinyurl.com/market-community) The family will be contacted the first week of April regarding their application to confirm information and get instructions on what to do. If you have questions or need more information, please contact Elizabeth Renfroe at (256) 239-6033 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline for applications is March 10, 2014.
Donations for Organizations: If you are involved in a community organization that could benefit from donated children’s clothing, baby items, toys, shoes or books, please have them complete a request for donations.
Consign with us:
Our traditional consignor spots are now full, but we would love to have you as a restocking consignor. Restocking consignors enjoy the same benefits and privileges as traditional consignors, including shopping early and earning 75% of your sales. If your items are priced well, you can expect to sell as much as traditional consignors. As a restocking consignor, your items will be added to the sales floor no later than Wednesday evening. This helps us make sure that we will have adequate space to display them well. Restocking is a great option for those who were unable to reserve their spot before we reached our max number of traditional consignors. In previous sales, the majority of our restocking consignors were as successful in their sales as our regular consignors and we anticipate the same to be true this sale. Only 50 restocking consignors will be accepted for the spring sale. Please don’t wait until the last minute to register.
To sign up as a restocking consignor with us, please follow one of these links. Please verify your current mailing address, telephone number and email address on your consignor information. Restocking consignors who volunteer for at least six hours at the sale will be moved to the list of traditional consignors.
Consignors receive 75% of their sales Jacksonville FUMC’s Children’s Ministry will receive the other 25%. A consignor fee of $8.50 will be deducted from each consignor’s proceeds check after the sale. You do not have to pay this fee upfront to consign with us.
Register as a first-time consignor. Fill out the form in the link. You will receive an email confirming your seller number and password.
Returning consignors can register for the current sale and sign up to volunteer through your consignor homepage. Use your previously assigned consignor number and the password you selected when you registered.
If you do not remember your log-in, you will have an option to have it emailed to you. If you are no longer using that email, send an email to email@example.com from your correct email account. We will change your email and send you your consignor information and password.
Busy Moms Tagging Service: Would you like to consignor but are overwhelmed or just don’t have time to get everything? We have volunteers who will be happy to tag for you. You’ll provide your freshly laundered items and clean toys/baby gear and they’ll do the rest. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for details.

You will receive your gold star at drop-off and do not have to stay to have your items inspected. If we have any problems, we will hold your items and return them to you when you come to shop. Just show your gold star to a volunteer, who will retrieve any items for you. Gold stars are distributed at drop-off and retrieved at pick-up. Gold Star Consignors receive one skip the check-out line pass to use time during the week of the sale.

Consignors who meet all seven categories will have their names entered an additional time. Consignors who have less than 20% of their items rejected for quality issues will receive an additional two entries, for a possible four entries.

Team Member Levels and Benefits:
The people working in these positions will help us maintain the highest quality and consistency for our sale. We are simplifying our volunteer levels to give more people an opportunity to participate and benefit from volunteering. They are:
1 shift (3 hours): Shop at 2:30 on Tuesday, April 8.
2 shifts (6 hours): Shop at 2:30, receive an additional 5% of your sales.
3 shifts, including Sort (10 hours total): Shop at NOON on Tuesday, receive an additional 5% of your sales, shop 50% off sale and Dollar Dash first. Sorting from 11 am until 3 pm on April 12th is mandatory. NO exceptions!
Only the people who work sorting on Saturday AND two other shifts during the week will receive the benefits of the third option. If you sign up for a 3rd shift that is not sorting, you will not be eligible for earlier shopping on Tuesday, Friday and Saturday.
As always, if you sign up to sort and do not honor that commitment, you cannot volunteer with us at any future sales. We depend on those volunteers to get everything done in a reasonable amount of time. Thank you for your understanding.
