Perfect Consignor status is a tangible way to thank our consignors who consistently follow all the JBF guidelines outlined below and bring great items to the sale.
We appreciate those consignors who spend the extra time at home ensuring that their items are stain free and tagged correctly!
If you have less than three stained, damaged, unacceptable, items pulled at drop off inspection and during the entire sale (including shoes), your name will appear on our PERFECT CONSIGNOR listThis enables you to skip inspection during drop off and save time!
REMEMBER: Perfect Consignor status is earned each sale. Spend extra time inspecting items at home so that you earn perfect status for the next sale! Check out our MERCHANDISE PREP INFO to make sure your items will be accepted.
Here are the rest of the guidelines to qualify for our Perfect Consignor status:
You must sign up to consign online at least 2 weeks before each sale.
You must consign no less than 30 items of clothing/shoes to even be considered in this program and if you are a consignor who brings over 300 items, you must not have more than 1% of your items turned away at inspection
You may only bring your items, not a friend's
Your 3 items or less rejected also includes shoes (consignors with over 300 items must not have over 1% of thier items rejected)
You must print off and complete your waiver at home and bring your own self addressed stamped envelope to check in.
You must turn in your Inventory Control Card (we will give this to you when you check in) to our head inspector before you leave drop off
You must bring back your Pick Up Pass (we wil give this to you when you check in) if you are picking up your unsold items.
Notice: Once you are part of the Perfect Consignor Program, you have the privilege of skipping inspection from then on.

Our Perfect Consignors are rule followers and help us run a very smooth sale! Thank you!
Tulsa JBF asks consignors to use SAFETY PINS to secure their price tags; we do not encourage the use of tagging guns.
The main problems with using a tagging gun to secure tags:
-tagging guns can make holes in certain fabrics especially if you do not use the extra fine needles and barbs. Once your tagging gun puts a hole in your clothing, it cannot be sold...it is damaged and a shopper will be very upset when they get home and cut the tag off and find a hole that is now visible
-tagging gun price tags are difficult for inspectors because they have to be very careful on what to watch for when you have a consignor who uses tagging guns…the holes can be overlooked
-we deal with ripped off tags when consignors use barbs longer than 1/2 inch, because they flop around when shoppers are moving the clothing on the racks
-tagging gun tags are difficult for shoppers who have to look for the price in other places than the upper right hand side of the clothing, and some shoppers just skip an item if they cannot easily find the price
-tagging gun price tags make it hard for volunteers who rehang the discarded clothing during the sales event because it they have to look for a tag that is not on the upper right hand side of the front of each piece
-tagging gun price tags make it hard for breakdown volunteers who will be looking for the consignor number in other places than the upper right hand side of the clothing, and they slow down sorting
-tagging guns can be dangerous in the hands of little ones because they are very sharp and the needles cannot be retracted within the gun
Tulsa JBF asks for consignors to use WIRE or DRIP DRY HANGERS for all clothing.
Pluses for WIRE HANGERS:
* they don't break
* they take up less space on our racks
* they are cheaper to buy than plastic
* you can get a safety pin around them when you need to attach two items to a hanger.
