Looking to clean out your house? Want to see your items get re-sold or donated to charities rather than filling up landfills?
Sign up as a consignor for our next sale!
Consignors do not need to attend the sale (unless they want to shop!). They are responsible for pricing and tagging all of their items and dropping them off the day before. Volunteers will do all the work at the sale.
You will receive 55% of all profits from your items sold. Anything not sold gets donated to local charities. You can also label select items “do not donate” if you want them back if they do not sell.
Selling your stuff is as easy as 1…. 2… 3!
1. Register to become a consignor online through My Consignment Manager. If you’ve never used the My Consignment Manager system before you can make up your own 6 digit seller number.
2. Use the My Consignment Manager system to price your items by 9:00 AM on Friday, April 5 and print your tags on cardstock paper. Print, read and sign the Consignor Disclosure Form.
3. Drop off your form and tagged items to us between 2:00 PM – 7:00 PM on Friday, April 5 at St. Clement’s Church and let us take care of the rest. Just sit back and wait for your e-transfer or cheque in the mail! You can check your settlement report in My Consignment Manager to see what you sold the day of the sale.
Frequently Asked Questions
How should I tag my items?
Start here. Always login through the link on our website.
Use only ONE unique tag with its own unique item number for each item to be sold. (You can use the power tagging option to generate multiple tags with the same description and price.)
Enter the price, brand, item type, and an optional description.
Print on cardstock if possible (to avoid lost tags). Use a RED pen or marker to circle the price of items you want returned to you if they are not sold. These items must be priced over $20 and marked as do not donate (deselect that option when making your tag).
Securely fasten the tag using safety pins. Covering the safety pin with tape makes the tag more secure. Do not cover the barcode.
For toys and baby equipment use tape on both ends of the tag to secure it to the item.
Place smaller items such as books, shoes and socks in Ziploc bags and then tape the tag onto the bag. Do not put the tag in the bag.
Do not put clothes inside Ziploc bags. Do not use string to tie the clothes together, use safety pins. Do not place tags inside Ziploc bags. Do not interfere with the barcode in any way.
How should I price my items?
Below is the average price for each item category based on items sold in the Spring sale of 2018. This does not include prices of items that did not sell. These are averages only. Many items sold above and below these prices so please use your own judgement in setting your prices.
New this year! We will have dollar bins for any items priced at $1. This will allow buyers looking for cheap items to quickly find them as well as allow us to better display more expensive items. We encourage you to take advantage of this especially for items such as onesies and cheaper t-shirts.
Category & Average Price
Spring Boots $7
Spring Coat $7
High chair $19
Pack and play $25
How do I see which items have sold?
You can check which items are sold by logging into the system and clicking “View settlement report”. The system will be fully updated by 1:00 PM on the day of the sale. Do not check view inventory. That will not be accurate until the sale system is completely shut down a week or so after the sale.
Can I get items back that I don’t want to donate?
All items are automatically defaulted to be donated at the end of the sale. There is a “Donate” box on the tags that will be automatically checked off. If your item is priced at $20 or above and you do not want to donate it please unselect donate and when you print the tag circle the price in RED.
Any “No Donation” items must be picked up from St. Clement’s Church between 1:30 – 2:00 PM on the sale day. Any unclaimed “No Donation” items will be donated and you will be charged a $50 fee for us to arrange delivery of these items to charity.
You can check if these items sold before you come by checking “View Settlement Report” after 1:00 PM on the day of the sale. Do not check view inventory! This is not updated until after the sale.
How do I get paid?
You will receive 55% of the profits minus a $3 administration fee. You can select your payment preference (cheque or etransfer) on your Consignor disclosure form. Payments will be sent within 3 weeks after the sale. Cheques will be sent via Canada Post.
Why do I need to print on cardstock?
Using cardstock drastically reduces the chance that your tags will fall off your items. If an item does not have a tag we will have no way to ensure you receive the proceeds of the sale of that item. If tags fall off and they have a clear description we will try to match them back to the item but it’s best to avoid that risk.
Do I need to Provide a description on each tag?
The main benefit of descriptions is to match a tag back to your item if it falls off. Sellers tend to focus more on the item and price than the description so if you are not concerned about lost tags you can skip the description.
If you’re selling items for the dollar bin we recommend using the power tagging option to create multiple tags with a $1 price and the same generic description or no description at all.
Tagging is taking a long time, how can I speed this up?
Sort all items by clothing, toys, equipment etc. Clothing should then be sorted by gender, then size, then type. This will increase efficiency when entering items because you will only have to re-enter the price and description. The other drop downs will remain the same. Stack all items in the order entered into the system so you know which tags match with which items.
Use abbreviations to save space. Common examples are:
BNWT – brand new with tags
BNIB – brand new in box
EUC – excellent used condition
VGUC – very good used condition
Use the power tagging option to generate tags for multiple items with the same description and price all at once. Or use the express tagging option to create and print tags with no description just a price. This is especially helpful if you’re selling dollar bin items. You can also do this to generate a large number of tags in various denominations and then handwrite descriptions on the blank tags to help in the case of lost tags.
Use the tab button, the first letter of each entry in the drop downs and the enter key to add items quickly.
In the manage inventory screen you can mass edit or edit individual items. If editing after printing the tags you must reprint the tags.
You can print all tags at once or at intervals as you go.
What if I want to sell more than 1000 items?
Please contact us and we will increase your item limit.
Can I print my tags after 9:00 AM on Friday?
Yes. You can still print your tags after 9:00 AM, however, you will not be able to enter any new items.
Can I transfer items from another sale that uses My Consignment Manager?
Yes, you can transfer items from previous GKSS sales if you didn’t drop them off or from other sales who use My Consignment Manager. In order to transfer items go to manage your inventory, select item transfers, select the applicable sales and transfer your items.
Before printing tags check the following:
The previous tags description is not too long for the current sale’s tag. You will be notified of this when you ask to generate tags to print
The previous tag’s discount/donate options do not conflict with the current tag (note that we do NOT have discount option)
Your seller number on the printed tags matches your registered seller number for this sale
What items can I sell?
Items must be in good condition. All items are checked before being placed on the floor. Any items with stains, rips, or excessive wear are donated directly to charity or disposed of. Refer to our “Shop” page for a list of items you can find at the sale.
