Please note the changes to our consignment policy as of January 1, 2012.
Homeschool Potpourri is
a full service consignment store. We help homeschoolers to find the curriculum
they need at prices they can afford.
If youíre like most homeschoolers you have
curriculum that you bought but never used for one reason or another, or you have
things youíre done with because all your children have passed that grade level.
Instead of these things gathering dust on your shelves, you could let us sell
them for you and use the money to purchase the curriculum you need, or get cash.
Most of the books and supplies in the Homeschool
Potpourri are here on
consignment. We appreciate our many consignors across the country, and have
worked to keep our consignment program simple and easy. Hereís how it works:
Bring in your consignment
materials Tuesday thru Thursday between 10:30 AM and 4:30 PM and place them
on our consignment check-in counter. Please do not leave until we tell you
what books we can use, or the
items we donít use will be considered abandoned and will be disposed of. We
will never take COPIED materials which break copyright laws.
Our staff will look through
the books and decide what we will be able to resell. Our criteria is based
on age and condition of the materials, and what is currently in stock.
If you are a new consignor we
will need you to fill out an index card with
your name, address, phone number, and email address, and birthdate. (On
occasion, we send out a birthday discount coupon via email). Our helpful
staff will be happy to get you a blank card. If youíre mailing in your
books, be sure to enclose a card in each box.
you are a returning consignor, you may ask a clerk for your number and find
out what your balance is by telling them your phone number. If you send a
request for your balance by email always
include your phone number.
Your items will be promptly
priced and placed on our shelves, and as they sell, 40% of
the selling price will be automatically posted to your consignment account.
We do NOT track
how many items you brought to us or what the items are, so if you want this
information you will need to keep your own list. We can tell you how many
items have sold in the history of your account.
Our consignors most often use their credit for
the purchase of homeschool materials, so we do not automatically send out
checks. You may call us or email email@example.com at
any time to find out your current balance. You may request a check, and we
will send it out at our next scheduled check run. This is done once every
month or two months depending upon the time of the year. There is a $ .50
charge for each check sent. Also, as of January 1, 2012, if you opt to
receive a check instead, consignors will now receive 25% for
consignment check/payment. If you stop by the store, you may use your 40% credit
to purchase items.
If you are mailing your items in, remember to send
us a list FIRST by email or fax, and we will tell you what we can use.
Remember to enclose a 3 x 5 card with your name,
address, phone number, and email address in EACH box, and keep your shipping
inexpensive (post office media mail is best) because we do not reimburse you
for your shipping costs. If
you want confirmation that we received your books, enclose a self-addressed,
stamped postcard which we can return letting you know we received your shipment.
Note: We reserve the right to donate unsold
items when we deem them as not likely to sell.
