What is Consignment and how does it all work?
Consignment means that you are giving us the opportunity to sell items for you on your behalf. We price and tag everything, but you get a 40% share of the profit when your items sell. This is a great way to make a little extra cash or use your earnings as store credit towards purchasing items that your kids need in the next size up! We keep everything in the store up 90 days and keep track of all of your sales for you. You can call or stop in for a total at any time!
Why should I consign instead of having a yard sale?
Consigning saves you the time of having a yard sale...and typically pays out the same (if not more)! You don't need to price anything, prepare signs, hang or iron your clothing, or get up early on a Saturday morning (when you could be sleeping)! We do all of that for you! You get the profits without all of the work!
Who does the Pricing when I bring my items in?
April Showers does all of the pricing...but will work with you if you have something that you are looking to get a specific amount for. We do everything we can to make sure you get the best payout for your items!
How do you keep track of everything?
We have a wonderful software program that keeps track of everything! When you bring your items in - each piece is given a consignor number and item number. Each tag has this unique number on it. When the item sells, the number is entered into our system and it automatically credits your account for 40% of the selling price! We do a back-up at the end of every business day so you can be assured that your information will never be lost and your account will be updated daily! Call anytime for an up-to-date total of your sales!!
Why do I need an appointment?
We currently have over 4,000 consignors! With so much merchandise coming in & people adding onto their existing consignments, we want to make sure we are ready for you! Your appointment time will allow me the time to look through your items without worrying about them getting mixed up with other incoming merchandise. I need to set aside a time for you to come in and give myself about an hour or two after you leave in order to price and tag all of your items. Once you are a consignor You can drop off 10 pieces of clothing a week with no appointment. bigger pieces please call to make sure we have room for your items.
What sizes do you take?
We accept size preemie up to size 14. We also take Maternity!
Why did you give back some of my items at my appointment?
This is always a touchy situation. Please do not get offended if we give something back to you at your appointment. It is nothing personal...just using my experience from what I have seen sell in the past. When a consignment is up, I have to pull all of the unsold items to return to the consignor. I use these "pulled items" to help guide me in what I should or shouldn't take in the future. The lighting in my store is very harsh...and shows stains on clothing that most lights in your home will not show. It happens to everyone....including me! Other things can also be missed, like broken zippers, pilling, fading, wash wear, worn knees, worn pant bottoms, recalls, etc. I want to fill every space in the store with items that I know will sell! In order to make the most I can for you, I need to make sure the items I am taking are in the best possible shape!
Can I bring items back to re-consign next season if they don't sell?
If something doesn't sell after 90 days, usually it means it will not sell in my shop. Same holds true for items I give back at your initial appointment. If I turn it down the first time, or it does not sell the first time, please do not bring it back to try to consign again. Please add these returned items to your yard sale inventory or donate them. I do my best to sell whatever I can for you -- but sometimes there are items that simply won't sell.
Do you accept toys and baby items even when you aren't taking clothing?
YES! When I am not currently accepting clothing -- We are STILL ACCEPTING TOYS and BABY ITEMS! Just give me a call and let me know whatcha got! :)
