Consignment Sale - Oct 5 & 6

Min: C$0 Max: C$5

Enchanted Forest Consignment Sale Oct 5 & 6

We know the drill- you have SO many articles of baby & kids clothing, winter gear & outerwear, toys, baby carriers, and other baby & kiddo products that are outgrown or no longer in use. You’d love to de-clutter your house and earn some money doing it! But the thought of taking photos and listing all these items on Kijiji and on Faceboook Marketplace is overwhelming, especially since people often can’t come to pick up items at a convenient time, or don’t show up at all. Or maybe you’re in the market for some great gently-used items at great prices. Fear not, we have the answer, and it’s EASY and fun!

 

Want to shop at the sale? Here’s what you need to know:

  • Saturday October 5, 10am-5pm - Items as priced
  • Sunday, October 6, 12-4pm- Clearance! All remaining items 40% off!
  • The consignment sale is cash-only. All consignment purchases must be paid for in the community room. Regular Enchanted Forest purchases can be paid for with cash, debit, or credit card as usual.
  • The sale is free to shop at! No need to register or pay a fee to get in.
  • Everyone is welcome! Please keep in mind that the sale may be crowded; if you bring children please mind them closely.
  • Because of space limitations and expected volume of shoppers, we ask that you leave strollers in your car or at home if you come during the rush hours on Saturday (10am-12pm)
  • All items are sold “as-is”, and all sales are final.
  • Have fun! Score some great deals! We hope you love it!

 

Want to sell your items at the sale? Here’s what you need to know:

If you have a large quantity of items (more than a garbage bag or so), please let us know when you fill out your seller registration form.

 

  • Fill out the online form at the bottom of this page to register if you would like to be a seller. We will assign you your unique seller number which allows your sales to be tracked without having identifying information on them. Your information is confidential and is used to track your sales and remit your payment to you after the sale.  You can choose to receive 90% of the sale price of your items as an Enchanted Forest gift certificate that will never expire, or 60% as cold hard cash.
  • Print off the tag template (CLICK HERE). Please use cardstock because regular paper will tear off easily, leaving your item without identification. You may instead print your tag template on regular paper and glue it to boxboard (cereal boxes etc). If you do not have a printer, pop into the store and we can give you printed copies.
  • Fill out your price tags, you may bundle items together as “lots" if you like. Round all prices to the nearest $0.50. Securely affix your tags to your items using string, safety pins, etc (no straight pins, please!). Want your un-sold items back afterwards? No problem, we’ll sort everything out for you. Would you prefer if we donated your unsold items? Sure thing, we can do that instead! Just remember to indicate your pick-up/donation preference and indicate if you would like us to mark-down your items for clearance on the Sunday. If you do not indicate your preference on your tags, we will discount and donate your items.
  • Great-quality, freshly-washed items only, please, and include brand-new batteries if applicable. If you would not buy it, please don’t try to sell it. All sellers will price and sell their items fairly, honestly, and in good karma.  The “Golden Rule” is easy to follow.
  • Drop your items off at Enchanted Forest on Thursday Oct 3 or Friday Oct 4. The store will be open for drop-offs from 9:30-5pm on Thursday and 9:30-7pm on Friday. We will sort and arrange items by category and get everything ready for the sale, which will be held in our Community Room. Please note that we reserve the right to remove any items from the sale that are stained or damaged in any way, those that smell of smoke or perfumes/fragrances or that otherwise do not meet the criteria of the sale at our discretion.
  • The sale will run from 10-5pm on Saturday Oct 5 with items at full price. Designated unsold items will be marked down by 40% on Sunday Oct 6from 12-4pm. If you prefer to opt-out of this extended/discount sale, no problem! Please indicate this on your tags. If you do not indicate your preference for discounting/donated, items will be discounted and/or donated.
  • We (and a few volunteers) will be handling cash and sales for all sellers at the event- sellers will not need to be present at the sale as all purchases will be tracked by seller number. Volunteers will have the exclusive opportunity to shop the sale before it opens on both days (and score the greatest items!), and will extra commission on their sales. Interested in volunteering? Indicate this on your seller registration form and we'll contact you to confirm!
  • After the sale ends, we kindly ask for your patience as we sort all un-sold items and prepare them for pickup and/or donation to local charities. We will need to prepare reports, calculate payments, and issue cash or generate gift certificates for all sellers. We will have seller payments and all items not destined for donation ready for pickup by Wednesday Oct 9, and request that all unsold items be picked up by the end of the day on Saturday Oct 12. Items unclaimed after this date will be donated.
