The EARLY SHOPPING of course!
Plus, volunteering is FUN! Get your girlfriends together and volunteer as a group!
Consignors who volunteer can earn up to 80% of their sales.
Shop early. Have fun. Earn more.
The volunteer schedule opens on Sunday July 9th at 7pm and the sign-ups get a little competitive! You will likely want to register as either a consignor or a volunteer before that time so that nothing will slow you down when you are vying for your favorite shift! You can go ahead and do that here now!
***Please note that in order to earn the max percentage of 80%, consignors are required to work either a sort/breakdownshift on the final day or a flyer delivery shift before the sale. If you are unable to work a flyer or sort/breakdown shift, you must volunteer 15 hours to earn 80%. You will still shop at the 12 hour volunteer time.Please also note that there is only ONE off-site shift (flyers, signs, meals) allowed per consignor/volunteer.

There are many new volunteer shifts to choose from including dozens of "flyer" and "sign" shifts, several "bring a meal" shifts and quite a few "special" shifts where 2 hours will get you credit for one full shift or one 5 hour shift will get you credit for two!
These shifts are designed to give everyone an opportunity to volunteer and earn an early shopping time. As such, no volunteer or consignor may sign up for more than one of these special or off-site shifts.
Meal Delivery: Deliver lunch or dinner for 6 volunteers (you will be contacted about what to bring.)
Flyer Delivery: Deliver 500 flyers to a "route" of day-cares and child friendly places.
Signs: Place (and retrieve) 10-15 yard signs in designated places around the Ballantyne area.
Drop Off & Set-up: Assist consignors during check in, Prepare and organize items for the sale, Inspect items for quality, Transport items from the truck to the sale floor, Arrange racks, tables and merchandise.
Sale Assistance: Direct shoppers, Organize and restock the sales floor, Assist with check out.
Take Down, Sort & Pick up: Sort unsold items, Assist consignors at pick up, Organize and pack sale supplies, Break down racking, Load the truck.
Please note: If you sign up for a shift and participate in early shopping and then do not show up for your scheduled shift and we cannot reschedule you for another available shift, your sales % will be reduced to 50% (or 25% if you are a concierge tagger). YES, we know this sounds harsh but signing up and NOT showing up is far worse than not signing up at all and is not fair to our other committed volunteers.
