How do I get paid for my sold items?
As soon as one of your items is purchased, your account is automatically credited for your percentage of the sold item, and the money is available to you as soon as the return-period for that item has passed (between 1 and 2 business days after purchase depending on the location.)
You may pick up your available balance at any Finders Keepers location during business hours. If your balance is less than $50, you can receive a cash payout. If your balance is $50 or more, we can write you a check.
You can also opt in to receive checks in the mail during the first week of every month if you have a balance of $50 or more. A $1.25 mailing fee is deducted to cover the cost of the process.
What does "Ingrace" mean?
After the consignment period has ended, your items fall under the “ingrace” category and are subject to donation.
If you do not want your items donated, you have the option of picking them up from the Finders Keepers store where they are located.
It is your responsibility to find your items on the sales floor at each location, and take them to a register.
An associate will remove your items from our database.
What do "Stay and Wait" and "Drop and Run" mean?
After you’ve become a consignor with any Finders Keepers location, you have two drop off options.
Stay and Wait:
You must stay in the store while an associate sorts through your items. You can bring a maximum of 25 items. Your unaccepted items are given back to you.
(The clothing locations require clothing to be on hangers for this option. Your hangers are returned to you.)
Jewelry is not included in the 25 item limit.
Drop and Run:
You don’t have to wait in the store.
Your items are processed at a later date.
You can bring a maximum of 75 items for the clothing locations (You do not have to bring clothing on hangers).
You can bring a maximum of 50 items for the furniture location.

 

Unaccepted items with a “Drop and Run” are donated.
