We appreciate and love EVERY Volunteer! No matter how small the task, how few the hours, your time helps us to be who we are – and maintain being the best place to consign and shop!!! We cannot do what we do without you, which is why we strive to offer you the special incentive to shop first. It’s just our little way to say THANK YOU!
Do you want to shop for the BEST bargains FIRST?
*If you are already a registered Consignor and want to Volunteer Log In to your account and select the Volunteer shift you would like to work.
If for any reason you are unable to work your shift we ask that you please call us 24 hours in advance so that we can find a replacement for your shift. If the sale has not started and there is a conflict with your assigned Volunteer shift, don’t worry! You can log in and change your shift before the beginning of the sale by Sunday. We understand emergencies will happen and will treat them on a case by case basis.
Volunteer Job Descriptions:
- We send out an email to those who sign up to put out yard signs
- You’ll get instruction on best locations & areas we must avoid.
- You’ll be responsible for putting out 25 yard signs in the area you signed up for (which hopefully is where you live, since you’ll know the best locations)!
- We send an insane amount of money on yard signs. They simply cost a lot – so each one counts!
- We like to get most of them out 8 weeks prior to the sale, but please reserve 3-5 signs to put out the weekend before the sale!
- We typically put them in busy intersections, highway off ramps, etc…anywhere that cars are stopped and have a chance to read the sign.
- Please only place them on public property – unless you have permission to do otherwise (i.e., a friend’s yard)
- Many of the signs will disappear on their own, but if you see any lingering after the sale, please pick them up and throw them away.
If you volunteered for Westchester, do not put signs in Port Chester.
- This shift is NOT as easy as you may think. It’s really a 2-person team going around in a car.
