You Don't Have To Be A Mom To Shop

Amy from Gabriel’s Good Tidings joins us again to encourage any woman, mom or not, to shop Boutique For A Week this sale! Today’s topic is one that will challenge you to think outside the box. I know we all have friends that are not moms, for a variety of reasons. As you’re preparing to shop Boutique For A Week, why not bring a friend along? Here’s a list of ten reasons why you should shop Boutique For A Week sale even if you’re not a mom.

FAQ Friday: Other Ways to Volunteer

Volunteering is worth the time and effort because it means getting to shop the great deals at Boutique For A Week first! If you are unable to work any of our classic Volunteer shifts, consider bartering for your hours. We have a variety of options that range from providing meals during volunteer shifts to passing out flyers before the sale. Read more about bartering here. We do still have shifts open during the sale so sign up if you’re able. And if you have any questions or bartering ideas, feel free to contact us.

We Need YOU to Volunteer

Today on the blog we welcome back Amy from Gabriel’s Good Tidings to explain how you can benefit from volunteering at our sale. When most people think about Boutique For A Week, they begin to make a mental list of items to consign. Or, they begin to think about items they intend to purchase for their little ones. However, Boutique For A Week needs so much more than your items or your money - volunteer your time!

How to Save Money (and Time) on Tagging Supplies

We want you maximize the money you make selling at Boutique For A Week! One way to accomplish that is by minimizing the money you spend on supplies.

FAQ Friday

No. Unfortunately it would be far too complicated and time consuming to do that! There are hundreds of Consignors at each sale and most sell clothes. To remove hangers at check-out and then be able to keep track of whose is whose… well, it’s just not going to happen. Remember, you will get a new hanger with each item of clothing you buy and that can help replenish your supply for next sale. Also, hangers can be found for cheap or even free. Check out our Consignor Tips post from this week for more information!

Are You Consigning This Spring?

Registration is open to Restocking Consignors for our Spring 2020 Sale. If you haven’t registered yet and feel uncertain about consigning at Boutique For A Week, this post is for you! It can be overwhelming to decide the best way to earn money for your gently used children’s items. Should you try Once Upon a Child or another store like it? Host a garage sale or even try a different consignment sale? What makes Boutique For A Week your go-to place to consign instead those other options? Plenty of reasons! Boutique For A Week allows you the luxury of deciding your own price. Stores do not generally allow you to do that. You are either paid (a low price) for your item, or you have to wait until the item sells to collect your earnings. When the store pays you up front, what they offer is take it or leave it. If the store makes you wait until the item sells, it often takes months before you see that money! At Boutique For A Week you decide how much you want to earn for your item. At the end of sale week (barring equipment failure) you receive your earnings. The process is simple; plus you have much more control. Another big reason to choose to consign with us: we love our Consignors and vice versa! Our sale has been repeatedly voted Best Children’s Consignment Sale in Central Florida as a result. It’s our goal to serve you and to see you succeed. We provide this blog and an entire website with the purpose of helping you navigate the consigning process, boost your sales, and more. If you’re uncertain what it looks like to consign, check out some previous blog posts and site pages like “Is It Worth It To Consign?”, “Top Ten Reasons To Consign This Spring”, Consignors 101, and Preparing Your Merchandise to get an idea of what consigning is like and get motivated to earn some extra money. It is our continual goal to serve you and your family in this way.
