Condition: Curriculum should be in new to good used condition with no smells/stains. Mild writing is okay but no pages missing.
Pricing: You can price your items yourself by putting the price inside the front cover in pencil or putting a post-it on the cover with the price you want OR I can price it on your behalf. I price 70% of retail for new items, 60% for excellent used, 50% for good used, with some rounding to make the numbers look nicer.
Fees: The consignor split is 70% of the sold price to the person who owns the curriculum and 30% to the store when items sell. No set up fees. You’re able to track what sells online in real time via a login we make when you bring in your items.
Time: Please call or email for a consignment appointment. It usually takes 30-45 minutes to go through your items together, and it takes me so far an average of 3-4 hours to get everything put into the system - so you might not see your items right away no matter how fast I try to make that happen.
This is the document you'll be asked to sign when bringing items in for consignment for the first time.
