One Week Boutique uses a form of bartering/trade to help cut our costs which in turn allows us to keep your consignor fee low and earning percentage high. There are numerous items that we need to form the foundation of our event. Tables, racks, water for volunteers, and more are all necessary for making the One Week Boutique a great place to find deals and make some money. If you are a consignor and wish to supply items that are needed, you'll get upgraded to a 4-Hour Volunteer status allowing you to get into the pre-sale a half-hour earlier than standard consignors. Plus, we’ll bump your commission up to 70% on your consigned items. Please note that only one pre-sale pass will be issued per barterer/consignor.
Please review our list within the registration portal (under the volunteer section) and see if you can provide anything we may need, and get yourself a boost in earnings and an earlier shot at finding the best deals.
You must be a consignor to be eligible for bartering.
be a star consignor
Avoid the inspection lines when dropping off your items for consignment by earning Star Consignor status after your first sale.
To be a Star Consignor, you need to bring at least $50 of merchandise to the current sale and at the previous OWB sale you must have brought at least 50 items of clothing and sold at least 85% or your total inventory. Please note that at least 50 of your items must have been clothing that met all of the submission criteria, such as tags, hangers, etc.
If you met these requirements at the last One Week Boutique sale then your name should be on the Star Consignor list. If so, you can avoid the inspection lines with One Week Boutique’s early drop-off session (check the drop-off schedule for times). If you cannot make the scheduled drop-off time, you may drop off items throughout regular hours on the Friday before the sale, but there will be more of a check-in line at the computer and more people throughout the entire venue (including parking).
Please understand that this is a large sale (over 40,000 items) and we do our best throughout the sale to insure your items are safe. We do not sell items without a tag and have paid security on staff throughout the sale as well as volunteers stationed at each entrance and exit. We have had a very low theft issue but there is always that chance that an item could be stolen or it could be misplaced throughout the sale. As stated in your consignor agreement, One Week Boutique is not responsible for lost or stolen items. We will always do our best to help you locate a missing item but please understand, like in normal retail stores, there is always some risk that an item could end up missing at the end of the sale.
