Becoming a Consignor
Step 1: Start by getting your consignor number:
Before you begin tagging items, you will need to register as a consignor with Toodle Bugs Consignment. Complete our simple online registration and get your number today! Everyone must pre-register to obtain a consignor number. ALL RETURNING CONSIGNORS – need to sign-up for the current event. If you have a previous consignor number with any sale using My Consignment Manager, please email us your old consignor # and we will get that updated for you so you can continue to use your original consignor number. ALL NEW CONSIGNORS – you need to select “Create user Account” before trying to log in for the current event. When selecting a number, please choose a 6 digit code with two letters and 4 numbers. Consignor numbers typically are the first letter of your first and last name along with 4 digits, typically that last 4 of your phone number. For example: AB1234. This helps us to sort your items more quickly and efficiently.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Your consignor number is considered a lifetime number. Please continue to use the same number for each event you participate.
Step 2: Begin by hanging, entering, and pricing your items:
Once you have registered, begin gathering your items and preparing them to be tagged.
Please refer to our What to Consign? And Tagging Instructions pages for detailed instructions.
Step 3: Print your tags
This is the key part of our system. Every item must be entered into MyConsignmentManager and have a tag printed with a barcode attached. Printed tags should be 8 to a page landscape format on 60-67 lb cardstock.
If you do not have access to a printer or find you are having challenges, you can generate the tags and then save the PDF to a thumb drive. Any local office supply location can print them for you. REMEMBER to use 60-67 pound white cardstock. A $15 fee will be deducted from your consignor check if you do not use cardstock.
Step 4: Bring your items to DROP-OFF
All drop off is by appointment only. We do this to make sure we can get you in and out quickly, that rolling carts are available and you are not standing in long lines waiting to drop off. Your drop off time depends on how many volunteers we have working, so please anticipate 20-30 minutes for this process. Before unloading your items, come to the check in desk first to sign your agreement and receive your pre-sale pass. Please do not leave until you have made sure all of your items have been checked in by a volunteer and accepted. We will ask for your first 12 pairs of shoes and then your first 25 women’s attire. You are required to set out your items on the gym floor if we are short handed. Feel free to walk the sales floor to familiarize yourself while we check-in your items.. There are labels for EVERYTHING. Please check back with us asking what items are ready to be set out. Please do not be offended if any of your items are rejected, you may consider to go ahead and donate them to our Dollar Dash that’s a fundraiser for Gladeville Elementary. To select an appointment, log into your MyConsignmentManager consignor account and you will see all available appointment times listed under the “Check-in” tab. Please bring a tote (no lid) labeled with your consignor ID number if you plan on picking up your left overs. If you do not supply a tote with your consignor number, a tote will be provided for you and a $15 fee will be deducted from your consignor check.

Step 6: Finish by picking up or donating your unsold items.
It is your choice to pick-up or donate your unsold items. Please follow tagging instructions carefully by marketing your items for discounting and/or donating. It is highly recommending that you discount your items. You can choose all or a select few.
All non-donated will be sorted and ready for pick-up. Please feel free as you pick up your leftovers to walk any of your items over to our Dollar Da$h event.
We will try our best to have your check ready during pick-up times. That is if there are no computer crashes, printer problems, or any unforeseen problems that can occur. If you know you are donating all items and prefer your check mailed, please leave a self addressed stamped envelope at drop off.
All items left and not picked up during the allotted hours will be donated to local charities.
