TIPS FOR CONSIGNORS FOR QUICKER TAKE IN

 

  • Tape or sticker your account number on the inside of the garment and not on the outside fabric.
  • Do not place strong adhesive on leather and delicate finishes as the adhesive may peel off the leather and finish.
  • Do a final inspection of items for condition and seasonality.
  • Print and complete contract from website (www.theguildshop.org).
  • Include as much detail as possible about the items on the contract.
  • Separate jewelry by type (bracelets, earrings, necklaces, pins) and place in small Ziploc bags labeled with your account number and consolidate all small bags into one large labeled Ziploc bag.
  • Helpful hint: place your account number in your cell phone under The Guild Shop so you will readily have it.

 

 

Jewelry items are accepted on Friday, April 6, 2018 and Saturday, April 21, 2018.    Consignors may bring up to 10 pieces of jewelry each jewelry take in day.

 

UPDATE:  The Guild Shop will be accepting pearls, cuff links, sterling, gold, and summer colored jewelry.  Due to current inventory, pierced earrings will not be accepted in April.

 

 

As a reminder, please do not place stickers on jewelry.  You must use and label plastic bags, such as Ziploc, that can be sealed.  The Guild Shop no longer provides bags for jewelry.

 

Due to federal law, The Guild Shop cannot accept pieces of ivory or tortoise.

 

Clothing items are accepted on the first three Wednesdays and first two Saturdays of April.  We will accept instyle spring and summer clothing.  Clothes must be on hangers and not wrinkled.   We will not accept winter clothing (furs, coats, sweaters, jackets, or vests).  Consignors may bring up to 5 clothing items per consignment day.  Shoes, purses, belts and hats are accepted as part of the 5 clothing items. The purse, the hat, and the belt need a separate contract each. The purse must be clean on the inside.  Please see below for more details.
