If I am consigning, but not volunteering to work a shift, when can I shop early?


Consignors & volunteers shop early during pre-sale: - Consign + one volunteer shift = 5:00pm - Two volunteer shifts = 5:00pm (& get your Consignor fee back) - Consign only = 6:30pm - One volunteer shift = 6:30pm




Can I use a tagging gun for my tags?


Yes. If you are using a tagging gun, the tag should be attached in the under arm seam, on the right-hand side, or the orginial garment tag so there is not a hole in the clothing.




When does the system close and I can no longer input items?


The computer system closes at midnight on Sunday night. You will not be able to make any adjustments to your inventory after that. However, you can still print tags after that time.




How do I price my items to sell?


Ask yourself what you'd pay for that item. Consignment items generally sell for 30% of retail price. Be sure and consider the condition of your item.




If I am consigning, when will I receive my check?


Our goal is to have conisgnor checks ready on Saturday between 5:30pm and 7:00pm. If they're not ready at that time they will be mailed to the address with which you registered within five days. You must show your ID to pick a check and the name must match the name on the check. We cannot give checks to husbands, friends, parents, etc. Checks that are not picked up are mailed within 5 days.




I need to transfer my inventory from another sale. May I do that?


Yes. We are affliated with the following consignment sales: Boutique Repeat Vineville Baptist Second Impressions MOPS of Warner Robins Jack-n-Jill Consignment




How do I need to print my tags?


Tags must be printed on white card stock using normal quality printer settings and black ink. Please do not use your highest quality setting on your printer. This often causes the bar code to bleed or smear and this will result in a delay at the register.




What is the best way to contact MOPs during the fundraiser?


We will have a phone number available during the week of the fundraiser. We will post the number on Sunday evening before drop offs start on Monday morning. You can also contact us on our Facebook page as well, MOPS of Macon/Forsyth Children's Consignment Fundraiser.




Do y'all accept and sell face masks?


Because of the contagious nature and the sensitivity of the corona virus, we will not be accepting face masks (new or used).
