 What is a consignment sale?

A consignment sale is an event in which families price and sell their children’s outgrown items, and place them on the sales floor with other consignors’ items. MCKCS organizes and advertises this event and each consignor receives a portion of their sales (70%)

 What is a consignor?

A consignor is a mom/dad who decides to sell their outgrown high quality, new and gently-used children’s items at one spring or fall sale. We take care of marketing, advertising, setting up, and running the events. Each consignor prepares and prices their items, drops them off at the sale, picks up (or donates!) their unsold items after the sale and receives a check after the sale. If you chose, you can also volunteer for additional perks.
