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. Usually a consignment sale is open to the public for three days in which the last day typically has items 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.
How much does a consignor earn?
Consignors at MBC earn 65% retaining. (The lower percentage is to help cover the cost to pay workers, following legislative changes that state we can not utilize volunteers and donations.)
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.
I have more questions…who should I contact?
PLEASE contact me (Joanna, sale owner) with any questions! I am here to help. The best way to reach me is via email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
