Consignor Numbers…

Ok party people…. apparently you all took our advice last spring and started cleaning out your closets, and you have a LOT of stuff to consign this fall. AWESOME! You should receive your consignment number and materials for the children’s sale next week. Please take the time to look over all the papers (front and back)…. there are some important things to remember – what we do and don’t accept, the drop off days and times, and most importantly – the information about the PRE-SALE!  Whoot Whoot!

If you do not hear anything from us by August 15, please send an email to consignment@matthewsumc.org.

Have a groovy weekend!

Today is the Deadline for Fall Sale REGISTRATION!

Today is the day… the day we stop taking registrations for consignor numbers. Have you gotten your request in? If not you have a few more hours. All registration forms must be postmarked by today to be considered for the lottery if they are being mailed in. Or if you don’t trust snail mail – you can always drop off your registration form at the Church office with Ms. Charlotte (or any of the very nice ladies in the Church office). The church office closes today at 5pm.

The clock is ticking…. tick, tock, tick, tock!

See you all in a few weeks! Wahooo!

We are half through registration – have you registered yet?

Hey, hey you! You over there…. the one that is so busy with end of summer activities that she can hardly see straight! Don’t forget to register for the Fall 2014 Children/Teen Consignment Sale.  The sale date is September 20th… which means we are about 2 months away from the most fantastical sale EV-ER!

Important reminders: Registration for CHILDREN’S SALE ends JULY 31st – it’s gonna sneak up on your before you know it!  TEEN sale registration ends September 11 – but they are limited to 75 consignors – so get your registration in early!

Now… carry on with your extremely busy end of summer festivities.  See you all in two months!

It’s TIME! It’s TIME! It’s TIME!

It’s time to get your registration in for the Fall 2014 sale. The sale is going to be on Saturday, September 20th. We are currently accepting applications until July 31st. You can print your registration form by simply clicking the CHILDREN’S SALE tab at the top of this page then CONSIGNORS INFORMATION…. once you click that, a little side tabby will pop out that says – SO YOU WANNA NUMBER FOR THE SALE? Click that and Voila! All the information is there.

Now, one last thing…. When you mail in your request, please remember to send TWO self addressed stamped envelopes (one will be used to send your consignor information once your number has been assigned and the other is used to send your big fat check after the sale for selling all your amazing things that your kids have outgrown or don’t use anymore – so definitely don’t forget that second envelope!!) Also, don’t forget to enclose your check made out to Matthews UMC Consignment in the amount of $12.

We look forward to seeing you all in the fall… it’s just around the corner. It will be here before you know it, so get to cleaning out those closets people! hehe

It’s ALMOST time!

DRUM ROLL PLEASE!  

We are so EXCITED to announce that our new space “The Commons” is ready and it is A-MAZ-ING!  We can not wait until our fall sale and share with the community our new space and new layout.  It’s gonna knock your socks off! Our sale date is set – so mark your new planners (you know you already have one to start planning for the upcoming school year!) for September 20th at 8 am!  That is the day we open up our sale to the community and get to share with everyone all the great things that you love about our sale and missed in the spring! We will still have the same high quality merchandise that you all have come to expect and love AND we will be in a new renovated space that is equally as awesome!  Can you sense the excitement that our committee is feeling right now!? We seriously can’t wait for this sale.  It’s gonna be ROCKIN’!

If you want to register for a consignor number, we will begin taking applications on July 1st.  Not a day sooner.  We will take them entire month of July and then we close registration on July 31st.  All applications must be dropped off in the Church office or postmarked by July 31st to be considered.  For more information, please click on the Children’s Sale tab right up there above this post…. you see it?  Now click on Consignor’s Information, and a nifty little box will appear that says “So you wanna number for the sale?”  Click on that and… Voila! there is all your information.  (We try to make it easy peasy!)

Can’t wait for the fall y’all!  Start cleaning out those closets this summer, I know you all have tons of things you wanna sale!

Well as sad as we were to announce that our spring sale would be cancelled due to the construction timeline at the Church, we are very EXCITED to let you know how you can still help our ministry partners.  As many of you know, the consignment sale isn’t just about helping our consignors make some extra cash (although, that is an amazing perk – Right?!), but we use the funds raised at our sale to help our ministry partners right here in Matthews and also across the nation and around the world! Isn’t that awesome!?

Without the sale, we don’t have the money (and left over goodies) to distribute.  This is where you can STILL help us in this endeavor.

PRESENTING….. D-R-U-M Roll Please….. The FIRST ever -

March 29th – 8 a.m. until 12 p.m.

We all have a Garage, Basement, Attic, or Closet that we have been dying to clean out.
NOW is that time!

Go ahead, clean out all those nooks and crannies where you have all your treasures that you aren’t using anymore stored away and DONATE them all to us! We will take anything… clothes, furniture, antiques, tools, cars, appliances (that work), toys… you name it, we will take it! Here is the best part, all you have to do is drop the goodies off at the Eagles Nest anytime between March 17-28th – we will tag everything for you! That’s right – no pricking your fingers with those darn safety pins or running out of printer ink when you are printing your very last sheet of tags the morning before you are supposed to be dropping your stuff off! – All you consignors know what I’m talking about… *wink* *wink*

If you have any large items (ie: couch, lawn furniture, washer/dryer, camper – just threw that in there to see if you were paying attention!), call Mike at 704-516-1863 and he will arrange to have someone pick it up for you if needed.

Ok, Ok… so if you are one of those really organized people who don’t have any treasures hidden and you have already cleaned out all your stuff that you don’t use anymore – well you can still help us too!

Mark your calendars for  March 29th from 8 a.m. – 12 p.m. and come shop with us!  You are guaranteed to find just the thing that you didn’t even know you were looking for…. how about that.  God is GOOD!

All monies received from the sale will go directly to our ministry partners and all unsold merchandise will be donated to Matthews Help Center and With Love From Jesus immediately following the sale.

So get to cleanin’ peeps!  We need your stuff! **Smiles**
