Presale is coming soon

Consignors will shop Friday at 5pm and their guests will shop at 7pm. Here are a few things to keep in mind as you are getting ready to shop and while you are shopping.

  • Make sure you sign up to line up (you can do this Friday morning starting at 10am, there is a link on your consignor pass. It will not work before 10am).
  • Bring a large tote, collapsible cart, etc to put all of your items in/on as you shop. There are some carts but not enough for everyone.
  • Wear comfortable shoes/clothes.
  • Your pass is only good for you (one person per pass) tell your friend to call/text you when they get in at 7pm with their guest pass. Shoppers who are using the Guest Pass to shop at 7pm DO NOT have to sign up to line up.
  • Leave your children with someone who you trust so you can enjoy an evening of shopping and not have to worry about rushing home. 
  • There are no children under 10 allowed in the sale unless they are worn on your body. 
  • Make a list of what you are looking for. If you want big ticket items, such as furniture, go there first, they sell quickly. 
  • Eat an early dinner or at least a big snack before you come if you are planning on shopping for a while. 
  • Make sure you follow @encoresconsign on Instagram. There will be an interactive scavenger hunt during the presale with prizes!
  • Boy Scouts from troop 13 will be helping by carrying heavy items, helping load cars and standing in line for shoppers. They are raising funds for summer camp. Please bring cash to tip OR NEW THIS SALE they can add a tip or donation to their credit card or debit sale total! :)
  • Have fun!
If you have other Presale tips you would like to share please leave a comment.

We have a location!

We are very excited to be the former Krogers store on Highway 96 in Franklin!  It will be a great location with lots of shoppers! 

One note: we will be splitting up the children’s and adult/home goods sale in two separate weeks—like we did in the Old Days, for those of you who have been with us a long time!

You will get to shop both sales before the presale according to how many shifts you work; see website for more info.  You can drop off your adult/home goods after your sort shift on March 7, so you won’t have to make an extra trip for that.  We’ve had a lot workers say they are looking forward to the separate shopping times so they can focus on one type of shopping at a time!!

Important Dates: Working Dates: Feb. 15 – March 15
Shopping Dates: Children’s: Thurs. Feb. 26, Fri. Feb. 27
                            Adult/Home: Tues. March 10   

Mandatory Sorting Day: March 7(no sorting for adult—woo hoo!!)                     

Half Price Shopping: Children’s: Thurs. March 5   4:00pm  
                                    Adult/Home: Fri. March 13   4:00pm
