Q – How often do you have your sales?
A – We have 4 yearly kids sales and twice yearly home sales– the first sales are in early Spring (February), Summer (May), Fall (August), and Winter (November). The Home Decor Sales happen during our Summer and Winter Kids sales.
Q – Where is your sale located?
A – Our location is at an exciting high-traffic area!! 4300 Buford Dr NE Ste 3, Buford, GA 30518
Q – Are children allowed at the sale?
A – Yes! We understand that for many of us, our children are with us 24/7! We ask that you keep control of them once inside the sale for their safety. At the volunteer sale and preseller sale, we will not allow children. Umbrella strollers are recommended as space is limited and slings/front carriers are a great idea for hands-free shopping!
Q – What types of payment do you accept?
A – We accept cash, MasterCard, AMEX & VISA . Credit cards will have a 3% convenience fee.
Q – What is the split?
A – 70/30. The seller receives 70% of their sales!
Q – What are your Savvy Sister shopping tips?
A – 1. Volunteer so you can be one of the first to shop!
2. Bring a laundry basket or bin *think Rubbermaid* for loading all those great deals in!
3. Bring your child’s measurements with you. Our items are non-refundable so you will want to make sure you measure their inseam, feet, arms, etc…to get the best fit possible.
4. Take inventory of each child’s needs so you will have your must-have list ready. Of course all the extra finds are what makes consignment shopping so much fun!
Q – I am not able to consign or volunteer, but I want to shop before the “Public” sale on Thursday. What do you suggest?
A – At the end of our Pre-sale on Wednesday we are offering an early Public sale to begin. For $5.00 PER person you can shop before our Public sale officially starts!
Q – Is there a minimum number of items?
A – 15 items is the minimum number of accepted items.
Q – Are you a store?
A – No, we are a seasonal children’s consignment sale. Each year, we hold two sales – one for Spring/Summer merchandise held in the early Spring and one for Fall/Winter merchandise held shortly after school starts.
Q – How do I price my items?
A – Prices will vary as they are priced by the consignor. We suggest a good rule of thumb is 25% – 33% of retail. Larger sizes tend to sell at the higher end and smaller sizes often sell on the lower end of this range. Outfits sell better than separates. Better presentation also commands a higher price. While we don’t require clothing items to be pressed, they generally sell better if they are. All gear must be clean, in good working order and have all parts present.
Q – How do I get the sale items to you?
A – We offer convenient day and evening drop-off appointments on three different days at the sale location.
Q – Do I have to pay the seller fee in advance?
A – No. The seller fee is $10 and is collected out of your sales. This amount will be deducted from your check. You can get this fee waived or reduced by volunteering! Only $5 with 3 volunteered hours or WAIVED if 6+ hours of volunteering!
Q – When do I pick up my unsold items?
A – Pick up for the Summer Sale is Sunday May 5th from 4:00PM – 5:00PM.
Any items left after these times will become the property of 3 Savvy Sisters and will be donated to a charity of our choice.
Q – When can I expect my check?
A – Your check will be mailed to you within 10 business days of the sale in your Self Addressed Stamped Envelope.
Q – What if at pick-up I have missing items that were not sold?
A – 3 Savvy Sisters will make every effort to insure the security of the sale facility after the merchandise has been placed. Consignor AGREES to hold no claim against 3SS for any damage (including an Act of God or otherwise), loss, or theft of merchandise during sale.
Q – How long are your volunteer shifts? Could I split a shift?
A – We provide convenient 3-hour shifts. We will have presale times for 6 and 3 hour volunteers. Unfortunately, we are unable to split shifts. If you don’t think you can volunteer due to childcare issues, try to swap with a friend and then shop the presale together for a girl’s night out! Husbands are also welcome to work volunteer shifts too! Any missed shifts will have a penalty of $25 taken out of your check.
Q – Can I bring my children with me to my volunteer shift? Do you provide childcare?
A – No, it would be unsafe to bring children while you work your shift and at this time we are unable to provide childcare.
