February 2021 Consignment Newsletter

Dear Consignors,

We’re a month into the new year, and we’ve certainly started off strong! Thank you all for your quality consignments and your cooperation with our rules and regulations. Intake has been running more smoothly than ever, which has helped us price your items more quickly and get them on the floor sooner, which is great for everyone! Your efforts are much appreciated -- let’s keep up the good work!

Please be aware that one of our most important rules of consignment is that the consignor must be present to drop off items or pick up a check. If you are unable and absolutely MUST authorize someone else to perform these tasks for you, please bring us a notarized letter stating so, including the full name and contact information of the person designated. We’ll keep this letter on file to refer to moving forward. This rule protects you from someone fraudulently using your name or taking your check without your permission,

As you may be aware, businesses have been reduced back down to 50% capacity due to COVID-19 surges. At The Guild Shop, we never increased capacity above this percentage, so while we remain vigilant with all procedures, it’s still business as usual over here! Help us out by social distancing, whether in line to consign, shopping in close quarters or checking out at the register. Also, please wear a mask covering your nose-- bandanas and face shields without a mask underneath do not count-- and stay home if you don’t feel well.

Vote for The Guild Shop in Living Magazine’s “Best Of 2021” Reader’s Choice Awards! This year, we are up for “Best Consignment Store- Clothing”, “Best Consignment Store- Furniture” and “Best Jewelry Store”. You may vote once per category, so if you agree- vote TGS for all three! Polling opened January 1st and continues through March 15th at livingmagazine.net/bestof2021. 

We thank you all again for your continued support and patronage. Here’s to a happy, healthy and prosperous 2021!
