Volunteer

Thank you for taking time out of your schedule to volunteer at the Crafters' Exchange Consignment Sale. We would not be able to make this a successful event without the help of our volunteers. As a volunteer, you get a pass to shop during the pre-sale times. You do not need to be a consignor to volunteer. In order for the sale to run smoothly and to keep things fair, it's imperative for volunteers to work the days and times they've committed to. Carefully consider your schedule and ability to fulfill the job's requirements prior to registering as a helper. If you sign up to volunteer and you do not show up for your shift(s), you will forfeit your pre-sale passes. If you have an emergency and are unable to work your shift, please let us know in advance so that we may find a replacement volunteer to work your shift.

Many of our jobs require standing or other physical work, so if you have special needs, please let us know when registering. Keep in mind that some jobs, like setup and Saturday sorting, require extended periods of standing and heavy lifting.

  • First setup day does require the most help/volunteers in order to organize merchandise effectively for our buyers.
  • We also need extra help at the close of the sale on Saturday to help get consignors' items sorted for pickup.
  • Volunteers who can work at a fast pace may want to consider helping at checkout during all days of the sale.

Our Volunteers get rewarded with:

  • Pre-sale pass
  • Half-price pre-sale pass
  • Drinks and snacks
  • Fun times and conversation with other volunteers
