Kids Closet Consignment Sale
Thank you so much for signing up to volunteer for the Kids Closet Consignment Sale! We couldn't do this sale without you! The sale benefits our preschool and on behalf of all of our students and staff, we thank you for your contributions.
The Fall season sale will run September 26th to September 28th, 2019, with set-up beginning Tuesday, September 24th and tear down on Saturday, September 28th and Monday, September 30th. We will need volunteers throughout the week to assist with various duties (see below).
Please visit http://www.kidsclosetwinterschapel.org/increasing-your-seller-percentage.html to see how you can increase Seller Percentage through volunteering. In order to increase your seller percentage, you MUST work either an evening or a weekend shift as one of your shifts.
What will you be asked to do? A lot goes into a volunteer-run sale. A few of the things you might be asked to do are:
- Sorting & tagging items
- Setting up and taking down of the sale
- Cashier and checkout assistance
- Setting up/Cleaning up donated meals for the volunteers
- Assisting buyers during the sale
- Returning misplaced items to their respective locations
- Theft prevention
*Volunteers who have physical conditions that may impede their work are welcome to sign-up for those shifts that do not require heavy lifting or standing. Friends or family may work a shift for you, but you must indicate this in the comment section of the shift in which they are working for you. We also ask that you notify our volunteer coordinator of any physical restrictions by Friday, September 13th. Set-up and take down shifts will require lifting and carrying.
*While we love to have bi-lingual volunteers, it is imperative that they can speak and understand English.
*If you sign up for a shift designated as a Double Shift, it will only apply to early shopping privileges. It DOES NOT affect seller percentages earned during the sale.
*If you sign up for consecutive shifts on the same day (i.e. a 9:00-1:00 shift plus a 12:00 to 3:30 shift), you must be able to work both shifts in their entirety in order to get credit for two shifts.
Childcare will be offered ONLY on shifts where it is explicitly stated that childcare will be offered. When you sign up for these shifts, please indicate the number of children and their ages. Childcare is provided for Winters Chapel families only and all children will need a reservation prior to arrival.
Volunteers earn the opportunity to pre-shop the sale. The earlier you get to shop our sale, the more selection & better deals you will find. The more shifts you volunteer to work, the earlier you can shop.

We cannot allow children onto the sales floor during Volunteer Shop or during the first day of the sale due to the sheer volume of people.
