FAQs


Is there an FAQ you think *should* be here or one you want to see?  Email sales@camom.org

How can I become a consignee? 

  • The signup for consignees opens about a month before each sale.  All consignees must be up-to-date on their membership dues.  

What percentage do I make as a seller? 

  • Members who volunteer keep 80%. 
  • Members who do NOT signup to volunteer or who miss their volunteer shift get 70%. 

What is the biggest mistake a new seller makes? 

  • Overpricing your items.  Use the price guide in the tips section.   Charge what you would be willing to pay. It is easy to attach emotion to it and think that is worth more than a stranger would pay. 
  •  Also, think about if you are are going to offer your items for discount during the half-off time, you would make more money if they priced well to sell during the full priced time of the sale.  

How do I print my tags? 

The goal here is to print clear images that scan well. 

  • Use WHITE, 65lb cardstock
  • If you come to the in-person tagging parties, we will give you 10 sheets of this cardstock as a party favor.
  • Use black ink
  • Print in draft or normal mode. Do NOT use hi-res printing. 

Test out your tags with a scanner app on your phone. 

May I bring my own bag for shopping? 

  • No. We have a large volume of blue Ikea bags to hold plenty of items.  

Do my items have to be discounted during the half priced sale? 

  • No.  It is up to the Consignee (the seller) if their items are discounted. You will make this decision when you generate your tags.  Each item that is discounted will have a 'D' in bold.  That item will be 50% off, ONLY during the discounted sale time if it has not already sold.  We also ask that sellers circle the 'D' in a red marker to make easy for shoppers.  

How does the half price sale work?

  • We close the sale floor at 11:30 and have people exit. At this time we switch the computers to discount mode and straighten up the sales floor, reopening at 12 pm. It is up to the Consignee (the seller) if their items are discounted. The large majority of items are discounted and you can tell this by the tags. Items that haven't been sold and have a large 'D' circled in Red will be 50% off from 12 - 1 pm.

Will you require masking at the sale? 

  • No, masks are not required. 

Can I bring my stroller?

  • No. The aisles are too narrow. 

Do I really NEED a tagging gun? 

  • No.  You can survive without it.  You can spend 30s -1 min using safety pins/item OR you can tag it in 1 second with a tagging gun.  

    The Dollar Dash is new, can you explain it? 

    • Yes!  The dollar dash is new event for CAMOM that is ONLY for volunteers and happens immediately after the sale is done on Saturday. The second the sale closes, the registers close and all items marked for donation are officially donated.  Volunteers start combing through the racks looking for items marked for donation and making a large pile.  During the first 10 minutes of this process if you see a donated item you like, buy it for $1! Cash only. The intent to find another good home for the donated goods and earn CAMOM more money.  

    Does the sale only allow seasonal items?

    • Yes, the sale is seasonal. At the fall sale: no beach gear, water shoes, shorts, sundresses, etc. At the spring sale: no winter coats, snow hats, mittens, sleds, etc. Use common sense about what shoppers might be looking to buy in late fall or early spring - more details in that guidelines document above.
