Worker Descriptions

Workers are really the ones who make the MBC sale a success! We always have amazing people who work very hard, and we hope to have the same for this sale.

REMEMBER: YOU DO NOT NEED TO BE A CONSIGNOR TO WORK!!!! However, if you are a non-consignor worker, you may only work the days/times BEFORE the consignor/worker pre-sale.

Don’t forget those husbands! We always need some extra muscle…especially during set-up and tear-down!

  • During set-up, arrange clothing and other items on the racks, tables, etc.
