Seasonal Consignment Guidelines
Drop & Run Consignment by appointment is the way we sell your stuff! For your convenience, you can bring any season anytime. When we receive your items; some are determined to be unsaleable and go to immediately to a charity of our choice. For the rest, we price your items in your consignment account then some go to the sales floor (according to our best time schedule below) and the rest are placed in storage until the proper selling season.
- The best time to bring Spring is January Thru March
- The best time to bring Summer is March Thru June
- The best time to bring Fall is July Thru September
- The best time to bring Winter is September Thru December
A good guideline for “Holiday” merchandise is 90 days before the holiday. Example, the best time to bring Christmas decor and clothing is the end of September…90 days before Christmas.
Christmas decor in Fairbury: we no longer accept/sell Christmas trees with detachable branches or table top Christmas trees. Ornaments must have been over $12 each new and still current. September-October is the best time to bring Christmas decor–if you bring it to us in Nov/Dec it is too late for full price sales.
Items with no season, we price it all year long: Jeans, hoodies, and non-seasonal home decor (Fairbury Only).
