Consignor Tip: #3

Deciding how to group your product is much easier than deciding what to sell... so congratulate yourself on getting to this point in the process!!

There are a several different ways to group your product.  Consider the following:
1. By Theme: Baby Girl, Holiday, Birthday, etc.
2. By Type: Cardstock, Pattern Paper, Ribbon, Embellishments, Thickers, Stickers, etc.
3. By Condition: New Product, Used Product, Scraps of paper
4. By Color: All shades of one color grouped together- this works well for cardstock and pattern paper.
4. By Kits: All remaining product and embellishments from a kit or paper line.

Find a good amount of space, like your kitchen table or counters, and begin sorting through your stash and grouping them in piles.  You may decided to group them in a combination of ways... like your cardstock and pattern paper by color an your embellishments by type.  You may even decide to make up your own themed kits by putting together a few pieces of cardstock, pattern paper, and adding a few embellishments that coordinate.  If you have a lot of one product, consider making smaller groups.  For example, if you have a lot of Halloween product, make up 2 or 3 kits.  The idea is to present your product in a way that would appeal to the buyer.

Lastly... as you sort and group your product DO NOT create a 'return to scrap-stash' pile!

With a little over 1 week to the crop & sale, we have seen a increase the amount of registrations we are getting daily.  For this BIG event we rent both the Atrium and Ballrooms, and will be seating croppers in both rooms too.  We already have enough registrations to fill the atrium which means there are limited seats available.  Several registrations referenced creative crew members who still need to register... so if you know of anyone who still needs to register, they should do it soon to secure their spot!  Seats are going fast!!!  REGISTER NOW
