You as the consignor, enter each child related items you wish to consign, set the price, enter the description, chose to discount or discount/donate the item if it does not sell, and print tags.
It is your responsibility to check all your items for recalls. DO NOT CONSIGN RECALLED ITEMS!! They will be rejected from our sales floor. You may check for recalls at http://wemakeitsafer.com/

Item Check-In will take place at the front entrance of the Cave City Convention Center, 502 Mammoth Cave Street in Cave City Ky.
Each consignor will receive a two-person shopping pass to attend the private PreSale on Wednesday evening at 6pm, August 21, 2019. This Presale is open to volunteers and consignors before the public sale opens on Thursday morning at 9am.
DO NOT LOSE YOUR PRESALE ADMITTANCE TICKET! You will not be admitted into the sale without it!!
Consignors who choose to volunteer, shop even earlier on Wednesday. See the Volunteer section for additional information and shopping times.
The Fall Sale will close for the season at 3pm CDT on Saturday, August 24, 2019. Saturday is also 1/2 price day!! Your consigned items will not sell at 1/2 price unless you designate each individual item to be discounted! This is done when you enter your items.
We encourage you to mark your items to discount half price. This helps move your inventory that hasn't sold before the last day of the sale. Many people only shop the 1/2 price day, so this is something to consider taking advantage of. The goal is to sell, sell, sell the items that you consign so you have a larger check!
Our registers will be set to honor 1/2 price tags on Saturday only. Tags which are marked DISCOUNT will be included in the 1/2 price sale on Saturday only.
The decision to donate unsold items is yours as the consignor to make. As you enter the information into My Consignment Manager to create your inventory and tags, you may select the option to donate. If you donate, we will be giving items on your behalf to selected local organizations Saturday night after unsold item pick-up time closes.
Unsold Items: Your UNSOLD ITEMS WILL BE SORTED by our wonderful volunteer staff after the sale is over, so your pick-up will be painless and quick.
Pick up times/instructions will be also be given at check-in and emailed to each consignor.
Unsold Item Pick-Up is 6.30pm – 8.00pm Saturday, August 24, 2019
Your online reports will be updated by 4.30pm CDT on Saturday, August 24, so you will know which of your items are sold/unsold. We will have your items sorted and ready for pick-up on Saturday between the hours of 6.30pm CDT and 8.00pm CDT. It is YOUR RESPONSIBILITY to check the Lost and Found table at pick-up. PLEASE DO NOT ARRIVE EARLY unless prior arrangements have been made! If you did not chose to donate and wish to do so after looking at your account, please contact us asap by TEXT at 270-723-0042 or 270-980-1520.
