Volunteer FAQ

Do I have to volunteer in order to consign?
No. You will still earn your consignor preview sale privileges but earn the minimum of 60% on your sold items. Volunteering a minimum of 3 hours bumps your percentage to 65%. Volunteering for 6 hours bumps your percentage to 70%. Volunteering for 9 hours bumps your percentage to 75%.

What will I receive in exchange for volunteering my time?
Volunteers who work 3-hours will earn 65%. Volunteers who work 6-hours will earn 70%. Volunteers who work 9-hours will earn 75%. Volunteers who work 12-hours will be the VERY FIRST to shop.

May I volunteer time before the sale?
Yes. We are always looking for help publicizing the consignment sale, setting up racks, and unloading equipment. It is so helpful to us if you can set up the week before the sale.  If you would like to do something prior to the sale, let us know and we will give you credit for it. There are a limited number of opportunities available.

May I bring my children with me during my shift?
No if your child is under 12 years of age. It will be too difficult for you to work and watch the little ones at the same time. If you have an extenuating circumstance, please let us know. Volunteers who are nursing small infants may bring their baby (because of obvious safety concerns, select a shift that we are closed to the public). However, if your child is 12 years or older then we can certainly use their help.  If your child can work independently given a task from Kool Kids, we welcome their help too.  You will be given volunteer credit for your child’s help.  You must contact us in advance prior to bringing your child and we will add them into our work shifts.

What days/times are available to volunteer?
Volunteer shifts begin the Saturday before the sale and continue through the final Sunday of the sale. You may check out all the volunteer shifts on the Volunteer Schedule.

Do I have to be a consignor to volunteer?
No. You do not have to be a consignor to volunteer at the sale. We welcome the help and will reward you with a preview shopping pass.  You must select a work shift prior to shopping the sale.  If you can not then we will hold your purchased items until your work shifts are complete.

What if I want to change my shift?
You are allowed to change or cancel your shift up to 7 days before the sale begins. To change or delete your shift, Click here

What will happen if I do not complete my scheduled shift OR cancel my shift 7 days or less before the sale begins?
If you volunteer, we are counting on you to follow through. In the event a volunteer does not fulfill their obligation, or find a comparable replacement, the volunteer will not be allowed to participate as a volunteer again or participate in any future preview sale. Please understand that these guidelines have been put in to place to maintain a high quality sale.
