One of the keys to making One Week Boutique a continued success is the tremendous amount of help we receive from our helpers. It takes a minimum of two-hundred active participants throughout the week to help set-up, staff and run this event. As a token of our appreciation to all of those who assist, volunteer helpers at One Week Boutique earn a pre-sale pass that lets them shop early and have early access to the best deals.

You do not have to be a consignor to help at One Week Boutique, just be ready to pitch in and have a great time. Moms, pregnant moms, grandmothers, dads, and anyone who wants to shop early for great deals can volunteer to help. We have sit down jobs, too.

We do offer some shifts that may have shorter hours but qualify as a higher volunteer level, and we can always use lots of dads to help during set up and breakdown nights.

volunteer helper responsibilities

Some of the things you may do include keeping the areas of the sales floor organized and neat, replacing tags that have fallen off, greeting customers as they arrive, bagging purchased items at check out, or assisting customers in finding correct sizes or specific items. 

On drop-off days you may be placing merchandise on racks as it arrives, on sorting day you will be helping us put unsold items under the correct consignor number for pick up. All the jobs are easy, and we always say "if you can count to 50, you've got it made!” We appreciate your help as this is a huge sale, and it takes numerous people to make it run smoothly from start to finish.

Bartering


Bartering



bartering

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. Snacks and water for volunteers, sale supplies 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 consignors. Plus, for Bartering we’ll bump your commission up to 70% on all of your consigned items. Please note that each pre-sale pass is good for 1 person only, but we'd love to have your friends or family volunteer and earn a pass too!

Please review our Bartering list inside the Volunteer Registration 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!

PLEASE NOTE:

You must be a consignor to be eligible for bartering.
