__________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Thank you so much for your interest in volunteering at our sale! We couldn’t do it without our wonderful volunteers!

In return for working at least 6 hours over the week of the sale, volunteers are invited to shop before the general public and two hours before the consignors at a private preview sale held on Friday. Volunteers who work at least 10 hours shop even earlier – at 2pm! Ready to volunteer?

Ready to consign and volunteer? If you consign and volunteer at least 16 hours receive 68% of your total sales . Want to be a crazy super star? Consign and volunteer at least 20 hours and get 70% of your total sales.

Helpful Volunteer Information

___________________________________________________________________________________________________________

  • Your hours do not need to be all in one day.  You are welcome to choose a combination of shifts on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday or Saturday to equal at least 6 hours to shop at 3, or 10 hours to shop at 2pm.
  • You do not need to finish your hours before the Friday pre-sale. We need lots of volunteers on Saturday, too!
  • You’re welcome to bring your children with you when you shop.  In the interest of safety, however, we ask that you NOT bring your children with you to volunteer at the sale during set-up, receiving, sorting or breakdown. 
  • We do have a limited number of jobs that can be done while “wearing” a baby (in a sling or wrap, for example) during sale hours on Friday night and Saturday.  If your baby can be happily worn for the duration of your shift, contact our volunteer coordinator at nwtmops@gmail.com so she can assign you to an appropriate job.
  • We also understand that your teenage children may want to help at the sale. We welcome the extra hands! If your child is at least 16 years old, just have him or her register for a shift as would any volunteer.

Please note: Consignors drop off items Thursday from 9 a.m. – 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. – 8 p.m. We will need volunteers all day up until 9 p.m. to help get all the items in the gym and put away neatly.

Sale Closed

Saturday 11:00 a.m. – noon. How you can help: We will close the sale for an hour from 11:00 a.m. to noon. This is to give us a chance to clean up and organize the gym before the 50% off sale starts at noon! Help us tidy up before the afternoon rush.

Still Have Some Energy Left?


Break Down of the Sale

Saturday 6 p.m. until 8 p.m. – or until we’re done!
How you can help:  If you’re a real die-hard, you can come for our break-down shift.  Break down volunteers work their regular six-hour shift AND help with break down beginning sharply at 6 p.m. on Saturday.  We will stay until the gym is cleaned up, probably no later than 9 p.m.
