Super Volunteers (8 hour volunteers) who work at least ONE of their shifts on Sunday/Monday during the main sort shifts (Sunday, March 22nd 6-10pm, 7-11pm; Monday, March 23rd 9am-1pm, 10am-2pm) will get to shop FIRST at the Super Volunteer Sale on Wednesday, March 18th at 6pm and the 1/2 price sale early on Saturday, March 21st at 6pm AND get their consignor fee waived!
***NEW in 2019***
In addition to the benefits listed above, super volunteers who work more than 2 shifts can now earn a larger percentage of their sales!!! Starting with the third shift, each shift will increase your consignor earnings until you reach 80% of your sales!!! Here’s the breakdown:
3rd shift – 69% 4th shift – 72% 5th shift – 75% 6th shift – 80%
** Only shifts worked by the consignor or spouse will count towards the volunteer benefits. Children over the age of 15 are welcome to come work with you, but their shifts do not count towards the volunteer rewards. I’ll gladly sign for volunteer hours for them though if they need community service. 🙂 **

Thank you for volunteering! You are an integral part of the sale. Once you have committed to a volunteer shift, we are depending on you to show up for your scheduled time. We realize that emergencies and conflicts happen, but if you do not show to work your scheduled shift or cancel and are unable to reschedule you may be assessed a $25 fee to cover a replacement person for your time.
Please arrive 15 minutes before your shift to receive special instructions. One person per presale pass will be admitted. We ask that you do not bring children with you during your volunteer time, this is for their safety.
