Here's the deal:
-You get your clothes ready for the sale - ironed, priced and hung.
-You take them to the sale and you'll probably be the one to put them on the racks.
-You normally will make around 70% of the selling price for your items.
-Once the sale is over you'll go pick up your items that didn't sale, which will probably be grouped and ready to go.
Now let me paint this picture a little clearer for you. This is not like a garage sale. These are like new clothes and toys, priced about 1/3 of the original price. So if you sale $400 worth of clothes then you'll bring home nearly $300! Believe me, even with the 30% going to the organizer - you'll still make a lot more than if you had a yard sale. I can't remember clearing much more than $200 at any yard sale I've ever had! These consignment sales are a great place to pick up boutique clothes. I always get Baby Boy's smocked outfits from there. (I just CANNOT bring myself to pay $80 for 1 outfit! - There I normally pay between $10-$20.)
