We value our consignors and believe the quality of our sale depends greatly upon those who choose to participate in the sale. We strive to make the entire consignment process simple, efficient, and profitable.
So how do you start making MOOLAH?
Step 1 – Register for Moo La La’s CENTRAL COAST Sale
For New Consignors, please REGISTER HERE. Please read through the website PRIOR to registering to know what is required of you.
Returning Consignors, please REGISTER HERE.
Step 2 – Gather The Items To Be Sold
Step 3 – Prepare And Hang Your Items
The time you spend preparing your items is a great investment. The better your items look (and even smell) the faster they will sell. Please take a few minutes to familiarize yourself with these PREPARATION TIPS.
Step 4 – Price And Tag Your Items
Statistically, consignors can anticipate selling 65-70% of their items when they are priced fairly. If your pricing base is too high (or too low), your overall percentage of items sold will reflect this. 25-35% off full retail price is an ideal starting point for pricing.
See our PRICING GUIDE to assist you in pricing your items. You can also use our ITEM PREPARATION/TAGGING GUIDE to assist you through making your tags. It is time to make your tags just log in using the CONSIGNOR LOG IN BUTTON button located at the top of each page.
Please customize each tag you generate by placing a small stamp or sticker that is identical on the left side of every tag. This will assist in the sort process at the end of the sale. Try to make this item unique to help with the accuracy of sorting your merchandise. Items marked for donation do not need this. Make your life easier by doing this PRIOR to cutting the tags!
Refer to our ITEM PREPARATION/TAGGING GUIDE for detailed instructions on using the computer system to generate tags and how to place the price tags on your merchandise. We will not be accepting items that have safety pins in the front of the clothing they must be pinned or tagged through the seams.
DEADLINE TO ENTER YOUR ITEMS ONLINE IS SUNDAY, March 19th at 11:59pm.
Step 5 – Sign Up to Volunteer
By VOLUNTEERING your time, you can earn up to 75% of your sales and have the
opportunity to shop even earlier at our VIP Mommy’s Night Out Event. A great opportunity to make more Moolah and save more Moolah by shopping early!
Step 6 – Drop Off Your Items At Your Scheduled Appointment
Moo La La values your time! Check in will take approximately 15 minutes to complete. To ensure an organized and efficient drop-off appointment
please follow these guidelines:
- Arrive 5 minutes early for your appointment. If you have large items, please assemble them when you arrive prior to your scheduled appointment time.
- Bring all clothing organized by size and gender to expedite the check in process. If your items are not sorted we will ask you to please step aside and organize them while we take the next appointment.
- Volunteers will check items according to our Accepted Items list. If an item is declined please do not be offended, we are happy to let you know why and give you an opportunity to repair if possible or hang it properly.
- Once your items have been checked and quality controlled, you will assist volunteers in placing your items in the correct location on the sales floor. Note: if items are placed in the wrong location, they are less likely to sell. Please take the time to be accurate.
- Be sure to receive your Pre-Sale Event Pass so you can come back to shop!
If you do not make it to your scheduled drop off time, don’t panic, you can still drop off your items. However, please be aware that it may take longer to drop off your items if you come at an unscheduled time.
If you have more than one car-load of items, please bring the largest load to your scheduled appointment and then return with the rest at your convenience. We will fit you in as soon as possible.
Although Moo La La inspects all clothing, shoes, toys, furniture, and accessories at the time of drop-off, we reserve the right to pull any unsafe or unacceptable item off the sales floor. Any pulled item(s) will be returned to the consignor at pick-up if it is not marked for donation.
Now is the time to get the word out about Moo La La! Help increase your sales and the sales of all the consignors by referring new shoppers. The more that know, the more that will shop, the more MOOLAH in your pocket!
Step 7 – Shop Early At The Pre-Sale
As a consignor you earn the privilege to shop before the public. So slip some comfy shoes on because you are gonna shop till you drop!
Want to shop even earlier? Check out the VOLUNTEER incentives.
Step 8- Pick Up Or Donate Unsold Items
Pick up is on a first come-first serve basis. It will take approximately 5-10 minutes. At that time please go through your items to make sure all items are accounted for. That is the ONLY time that you are able to dispute any missing items. All remaining items that are not picked up before 12pm will be donated to our designated charity, as outlined in the consignor agreement.
If our designated pick up time does not work for you, please send a friend or relative to retrieve your remaining inventory on your behalf. Note- ALL persons picking up unsold items must verify the account by name, consignor number, and/or telephone number.
Sorry, NO exceptions will be made.
If you have chosen to DONATE your unsold items, then your job is
done! Just sit back and wait for payday!
Step 9 – Cash Your Check
You can expect your check in the mail 2 weeks after the sale.
(Your Sales x Your %) = Your Profit
