Items You Can Sell

-Skis/Snowboards in good condition with proper, usable bindings

-Road/Mountain Bikes

-Paddling Equipment (kayaks, paddles, personal flotation devices, paddle boards, etc)–must be unmotorized

-Camping/Hiking gear (tents, packs, poles, stoves, books, maps, etc)

-Fishing equipment

-Outdoor Technical Apparel and Sporting Goods (such as lacrosse equipment)

How to Prepare Items

-All items must have all pieces in good working condition.

-Use the supplied tags and make sure they are sturdily attached. They can be ripped off by a customer and fall from your item. We cannot pay you for an item that does not have a tag. See the Pricing and Tagging section on how to attach tags.

-Make sure clothing is clean and has been laundered. Clothing should be in excellent condition or it will not sell. If you are selling gloves or hats it would be beneficial to place them in zip lock baggies so they do not get separated, no one will buy just one glove.

-Presentation is everything! If your items are clean and in good working order, they will sell much better than dusty items that are next to them.

Pricing and Tagging

-Minimum price for any item is $2.00.

-All items must be in $1.00 increments.

-Using our tagging template, either hand write or type in necessary information. Printing tags on card stock will hold up much better than regular paper.

-When placing the tag on items, make sure they are securely attached.

-Clothing – use a safety pin and attach your tag to the upper right corner of clothing.

-Boots – tags may be attached with safety pin to liner (make sure it does not hinder trying the boots on) or can be taped to the back of the boot.

-All other items – Use tape (packing tape works best) to secure tag to the most visible part of your item.

Dropping off and Picking Up Your Items

-All items must be dropped off in the lodge at West Mountain on Friday night between 4:00 pm and 7:00 pm – no exceptions. Nothing will be accepted on Saturday.

-A volunteer will help check in your items. If you have already tagged your items, this process will be much quicker for you.

-Pick up of items not sold will be on Sunday April 16th between 9am and 12pm or Monday April 17th between 12-4pm. Any items not picked up will be considered a donation.

When Will I Get Paid?

-Your checks will be mailed to the address you register with, 3-6 weeks after the sale.

Thank you,

West Mountain School Board of Directors: Sara Montgomery, Patrick Cunningham, Paula Slayton and Babette Donlon
