RewardS OF Being A Volunteer!
We owe a lot to our Volunteers. From setup to takedown, we count on them to assist us with every single aspect of a Consign49 Event. They are the backbone of our sales, working side by side with the Consign49 team to make each sale bigger and better for everyone. We appreciate every minute we have with our volunteers, and have put together some great incentives and rewards for those who dedicate their time to us.
Consign49 Consignors and Volunteers receive passes to our presale, hours before everyone else!
because it's fun!
Volunteers get a front row seat to the retail madness that is Consign49. They get to see the amazing merchandise we take in before anyone else, and they also get to shop before the public, by receiving a pass to our private presale!
Our volunteers shifts run in four hour blocks. Consignors receive an extra 5% of their total sales for each 4 hour shift worked, up to a maximum of 15%. To be eligible for the maximum 15% additional earnings, one of the three worked shifts must include the sort on Sunday evening.
Even though consignor benefits max out after three shifts, if you love participating in our event, you can volunteer as much as you would like!
We also hold volunteer only prize giveaways. The more shifts you volunteer for, the more chances you have to win! "

Frequently Asked Questions
Volunteering at a Consign49 event is a super fun way to get in on the action, and be the first to shop! Here are some FAQ’s. Read through, but if your question isn’t answered, please ask us at email@example.com.
Who can volunteer for Consign49 events?
Any Consigner can sign up who has the physical ability to be on their feet for four hours! Our volunteers are the heart of our sales, helping us run them smoothly and seamlessly.
What are the perks for Consign49 Volunteers?
Quite a few! Consign49 volunteers get first hand access to our inventory before the public! Volunteers receive passes to the Opening Night Presale. They also get entered into volunteer only prize drawings and giveaways.
Can I bring my child with me to volunteer?
No, unfortunately we do not allow children to accompany volunteers. Volunteers fully immerse themselves in their work, which makes it nearly impossible to do with children to watch over. In addition, it's a liability we cannot take. Exceptions are nursing babies who can be “worn” on their moms!
What type of Volunteer Jobs and Shifts are available?
Visit our Volunteer Job Descriptions section and sign up today! Not available during those shifts, but have another way of adding value to a Consign49 event? Email us with your volunteer proposal. We're always open to working with everyone in the community to make our event even better!
Can someone else work a shift for me?
Yes! We welcome any volunteers! Husbands, Moms, Sister, etc... Husbands are especially appreciated during set up and take down. Keep in mind however, that only 1 presale pass will be given to each Volunteer.
Is my pass valid for me AND my friends?
Unfortunately no, presale passes are valid for only 1 person. If friends are interested in shopping together, we encourage them to volunteer together.
