My Mommy Mart volunteers shop our sale first and get first dibs at great, gently-used children's clothing, baby equipment, and toys.
Volunteer shifts are now open!
My Mommy Mart depends on consignors and volunteers to make our events possible. Our volunteers work hard and get to shop the sale even before the consignors. Each volunteer shift is 4 hours long. Since this is a super short sale, we are having our volunteers and consignors shop together.
Volunteer Shopping - Friday, November 11th 5pm-7pm
Who can volunteer?
For our Merry Mommy Mart, volunteers must be consigning in the sale or a lead volunteer from previous consignment events. The name of the game for this sale is efficiency. We will have a total of 6 hours to get everything set up & placed in the building. That is why I'm being very specific about volunteers.
What do volunteers do?
The job duties will vary based on the number of volunteers and what stage of the sale we are in on the day you volunteer. Please plan to work for at least 4 hours– shifts can be on the same day or on different day. Please arrive at least 15 minutes before your shift starts so we can get you signed in and give you your instructions.
Friday morning - Set Up (set up racks, tables, shelves) & take in Drop Offs (Organizing, inspecting, and taking in inventory)
Friday evening, Saturday, and Sunday - Presale & Public Sale (Put items back in correct place, help with large items, continually organize, work as a bagger at check-out)
Sunday after the sale - sort items for donation and items back into consignor numbers, break down tables and racks
Please check your schedule before signing up for a shift. We have several shifts available – consider trading babysitting with a friend. You watch her kids during her volunteer shift and she can watch during your volunteer shift. Then you can go shopping together!
* Please do not bring children to your scheduled shift. (The exception to this is a baby in a front carrier during the drop-off or pick up shift)
* Be prepared to work.
* Please limit cell phone use during your shift. You can have your cell phone in your pocket, but please do not carry on conversations via text or talking during your shift.
* Wear comfortable clothing & shoes. You will be walking on a concrete floor for most of your shift. Please do not wear tank tops or short shorts or anything that isn't appropriate for a mommy.
* We will have snacks provided, but please do not spend more than 15 minutes on break during your shift. For real, this time will just be snacks instead of me cooking anything.
If you need to reschedule before the drop-off for the sale has started, you can remove yourself online and reschedule for another shift. If you need to cancel or reschedule your shift after the sale has started, you must email us at email@example.com. If you cancel within 24 hours of your shift, you will not be allowed to register as a volunteer or a consignor for the next sale.
Please, please do not sign up for a shift unless you are sure you can make it! The success of this sale depends on our volunteers!
