Frequently Asked Questions:
What exactly is a consignment sale?
A consignment sale has over 150 families that sell their new and gently used items. These consignors prepare, tag, and price their items. MBC runs the sale and returns any un-sold items to the consignors. The sale opens with a Pre-Sale on the Wednesday of the week and requires a ticket for entry. Thursday-Saturday of the same week is open to the public with no ticket required for entry. On Saturday, the last day of the sale, many items are marked half price.
Who should attend?

Where is the MBC Sale located? Is there a storefront/permanent location?
Although MBC does not own a store, we rent the Maize Recreation Commission’s multi-purpose room three weeks a year.
How often are sales?
MBC has three children’s sales a year: March/April, last week of July, and second week of November. MBC reserves the right to move the week of the sale slightly as needed for location rental availability. Make sure you sign up to follow the MBC Facebook page to stay up to date!
How much does a consignor earn?
Consignors at MBC earn 65% of the price they put on the item. The remaining 35% is used to cover the cost of the rental, pay workers, sale supplies, advertising, etc. Sales reports are available at the end of each sale day so consignors can monitor their daily sales totals.
Does it cost anything to be a consignor?
Yes. There is a $15 non-refundable consignor registration fee.
How do I get barcodes for my tags?
MBC uses an online program called My Sale Manager (MSM). Consignors can enter their items into MSM, print tags with barcodes, and watch sale results during the sale.
My friend and I want to consign…can we put our items under one number?
No. Only one family per consignor number. Please do not abuse this special opportunity by consigning other’s items under your number.
