What to expect at Drop Off

  • Each consignor must bring the Consignor’s Agreement and two print-outs of his/her inventory for inspectors to check items against. The second copy will be for you to keep track of any items that are not accepted.  YOU WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO CHECK IN WITHOUT AN INVENTORY OF YOUR ITEMS. Please make sure you have marked off any items that you are not consigning. To print your inventory, login to your account, click on “Event Management” at the top of the page.  and then click on “Inventory Report.” Click print at the top of the page.  You do NOT have to check the boxes.  It will print all the items in your inventory.   Please make sure you staple your report and put your name and consignor number along the right-hand side(edge).

  • Before unloading any of your items: please come inside to the Check-in Desk to confirm participation, turn in the HWGA Consignor’s Agreement and show your printed inventory reports.

  • Unload your merchandise. Bring your clothing and shoes in first before bringing anything else inside.  You will hang your clothing on a rack to be inspected.  While it is being inspected, you will take your non-clothing items around the back alleyway to be inspected and checked for recalls.  Once you drop those items to be inspected, please come back to the front.  At this point you will be asked to put your approved clothing out on the racks in the correct sizes.  This is necessary as we anticipate not having enough volunteers for this task.

  • Once your clothing items are accepted be sure to retrieve any items that did not pass our inspection process. Remember: Any items not picked up will automatically be donated.

  • Remember: Once you get home please be sure to mark off any items that were declined at drop off from your inventory list. You will not be given credit for those items.

  • Congratulations! You’re done! We do the rest!

What to expect from the HWGA Inspectors

HWGA has a standard and it is important that we do our best to be true to that standard.

It is VERY important that consignors first follow all guidelines of tagging, preparation of merchandise and what is and isn’t accepted. Your attention to detail will tremendously reduce any confusion and possible rejection of your items.

  • Clothing Inspection: Clothes will be inspected for cleanliness, condition, and current style of each item. CLOTHING WITH SMELLS OF PETS, MOTHBALLS OR SMOKE WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED. Your tag must be correctly done and you MUST have labeled your items with masking tape or small label for easy identification if the tag is lost.

  • Shoe Inspection: Shoes will be inspected for scuff marks, excessive wear and current style. No tennis shoes unless in brand new condition.

  • Big/Outside Toys, Inside Toys, Strollers, Cribs, Pack-N-Plays, Baby Equipment, Nursery Decor, Infant Accessories:  The HWGA Volunteers conducting the inspections will be looking for current merchandise, condition, cleanliness, and overall appearance.

  • Riding/Battery Operated Toys:  These toys must have the battery included and will be checked to ensure that they work.

Consignor’s Responsibilities
