Shopping FAQs

What is a consignment sale?

When a person or company sells your items on your behalf in exchange for a commission, it is called a consignment sale. You are consigning with Trading Hands for a 3-day sale, verses a longer period in a store.

How can I shop before the public?

Every consignor is given the opportunity to shop before the public by attending the Consignor Pre-Sale. In addition, every consignor has the option to sign up to help during the sale week, as a Team Member. By becoming a Team Member, you will be one of the very first to shop at the Team Member Pre-Sales.  Starting Spring 2013, we are offering different Team Member PreSale start times as well as some other exciting perks! Refer to our Team Member page for more information.

How do I attend the Pre-Sale?

If you have registered as a consignor, you will be issued a Consignor Pre-Sale Pass for yourself, and you will be issued a Guest Pass to the Consignor Pre-Sale, that you may give to anyone.  These will allow you to shop at the Consignor’s Pre- Sale that precedes the public sale. These passes will be issued to you during drop-off. You MUST bring the pass in order to attend the sale. Only one person may attend per pass. Children or babies in strollers would be considered a Guest and require a Guest Pass.

Can I bring my child to the Pre-Sale?

Children are allowed during the Team Member PreSale.  Each Team Member will receive (1) Child Pass, plus a Guest Pass to the Consignor PreSale. A child or child in a stroller would require the Child Pass.  Babies in a sling/carrier would not require a Child Pass. Children can attend the Consignor Pre-Sale and the New Mom & Military PreSale with a Guest Pass.  Babies in strollers and children require a Guest Pass.  Babies in a sling or a carrier do not require a Guest Pass.

Children are welcome during ALL public sale hours.
