We know what you're thinking, why on earth should I volunteer?!
1. If you want to save money, you should volunteer. Volunteers shop the day before the public and get first pick of the merchandise. i.e. There may be several identical strollers. One for $100, one for $90 and one for $25. By volunteering, you get your pick of the one that you want and have the opportunity to save significantly by having more choice.
2. If you have boys ages 3 and up, you almost have to volunteer because boys are so hard on their clothes that the selection is always small.
3. If you're a consignor you receive a higher percentage of your sales.
4. It's fun! No really, it's is! It's a great way to get out of the house and meet other local parents and make some new friends.
First pick of the merchandise, fun and more money...why not volunteer?!
