TIPS FOR QUICKER TAKE IN:

Before Coming in to Consign:

Check for consignment updates on our website at www.theguildshop.org

Print and complete contract from website.

Include as much detail as possible about the items on the contract.

Tape or sticker your account number on your items.

For clothing, place sticker inside of the garment – not on outside of the fabric.

Note: Garments without stickers will be considered donations.
Do not place strong adhesive on leather items or delicate finishes as the adhesive may peel off the leather and finish.
Do a final inspection of items for condition and season.
Separate jewelry by type (bracelets, earrings, necklaces,  pins, watches, etc.) place in small Ziploc bags labeled with your account number.  Then, consolidate these bags into one large Ziploc bag labeled with the account number and completed contract enclosed.
