Steps 5 & 6: Drop Off & Pick Up

Drop Off Information

Monday, April 17 – Thursday, April 20 by appointment

Drop off for your items is Monday through Thursday before the sale. Consignors with more than 300 items MUST drop off Tuesday or Wednesday. Please allow 20 – 60 minutes for your drop off, depending on the number of items you have. Allow more time if you drop off during the evening and/or have more than 300 items. And please be patient. Remember that the hardworking helpers are volunteers, and they are doing their best!

Our drop off is generally pretty fast as we have a (almost) drop-and-run kind of system. So all you need to do is bring your items in and place them on the designated areas for inspection. You don’t have to wait for them to be inspected, or place them on the sales floor after they are inspected. Our fantastic volunteers will do that for you.

Alternate drop off times/dates might be available under special circumstances. Please call if you need a different drop off time and we will try our best to accommodate you.

Pick Up Information

Sunday, April 23, 5:30p-7:30p

You must pick up your unsold items on Sunday, April 23 after the sale!  Please check in at the desk to receive your report before proceeding to your items. Your items will be pre-sorted as far as possible, to make it easier for you. Usually your hanging clothes items will be sorted by the first two digits of your consignor number on the clothing rack, and other items such as toys and books will be sorted by the first two digits of your consignor number on our tables.

Keep your active inventory as accurate as possible. It will be really difficult for you to find all of your items, or know if you have all of your items, if you have inventory in your account that you did not bring.

As you leave, a volunteer will double check the items you are taking against your consignor number.

Any items that are not picked up by 7:30pm will become sole property of From Yours To Mine, LLC and donated to a charity of our choice. Sorry, there are no exceptions as we do not have any facilities to store the items.

We changed our pick-up procedure a few years ago to reduce loss during sort and pick-up. It really isn’t hard to grab your items from a few different places instead of all at once. As a result we have found that our “missing” items reports from consignors have gone down drastically. I am convinced that most missing items aren’t actually stolen, but are sorted into the wrong pile. During sorting by consignor number, a 1441 starts to look an awful lot like a 1414 after a while, and items are added to the wrong consignor. These mistakes happen very easily, the volunteers sorting are only human. I am proud to say that we have reduced complaints from consignors about missing items drastically since we changed our pick-up procedure.
