If you are attending one of our preview sales on Wednesday, please review the following reminders to help create a smooth shopping experience:

Wear your wristband

Check the schedule- come at the right time for the preview sale you are eligible for. 

  • 2p - Super+ Volunteers (Green)
  • 3p - Super Volunteers (Blue)
  • 4p - Volunteers (Yellow)
  • 5p - Consignors + Guests (Pink, White)
  • 6p - New Moms (Red)

No guests or kids (without a wristband)

In order to improve the shopping experience at our preview sales, please do not bring spouses, older children, parents, or other guests. No guests are allowed at the Volunteer preview sales. Guests with wristbands will be allowed at the Consignor Preview sale. Children in strollers or slings are allowed, but we suggest not bringing them if possible as the sale can be a bit hectic. If you choose to bring your small children, keep them by your side at all times (kids cannot be roaming around unsupervised). 

Guest passes

For the consignor preview sale (starting at 5p), guest passes will be available for $10 at the door. Guests must have a preview sale wristband (they will have the white bands) in order to enter. 

New purchase process for large items, security tags (big items do not go to holding area)

Example Security Tag

New this sale, you will see items with a large tag that replaces our "sold sticker" process from previous sales. If you see a large item you want, follow the instructions printed on the tag:

  1. Write your name and phone number on the top half of the tag (in pen)
  2. Tear off the bottom half of the tag
  3. Check out, get a receipt
  4. Grab your item from the floor and have your receipt checked at the door on your  way out

Items that have the bottom half of the tag torn will be considered sold, but should be left in place on the floor rather than being moved up front. 

Items that will have the new security tags:

  • Strollers
  • High chairs
  • Pack and Plays
  • Outdoor toys
  • Bikes
  • Exersaucers
  • Furniture
  • Bouncers
  • Swings
  • Car seats

Line up inside the mall

For the volunteer and consignor preview sales, we will be lining up inside the mall at the inside entrance to our store (by Sports Authority). Lines will form early, so please look for the people that have the same color wristband as you to make sure you are in the right line. 

Carts, shopping bags, etc.

We have a limited number of shopping carts, so please don't count on being able to get one at the preview sales. We will provide large shopping bags for your use while at the sale (from Ikea), but you might want to bring a basket or something else to carry your items in while shopping. 

Checkout changes

We will not be tearing tags at check out this time so the process will be more like what you would experience at other retail stores. To keep things moving, keep like items together for fast scanning and bagging. 

Express line

Though we don't expect anyone to find only 10 items or less, if you have a small number of items please look for our express line to move through checkout more quickly. 

Be patient

We have a lot of consignors and a lot of items at this sale, and we will be doing everything we can to keep things moving but it might take you a few minutes to get through check out. Thank you in advance for your patience. 

Get great deals!

We have packed in more than 80,000 items at this sale! Inventory is up over 30% from the Spring event so you are sure to find everything you need to stock up for the next few months. 

Crib Recalls - Only Cribs Manufactured After June 2011 Allowed

Due to changes in the laws regarding crib safety, drop side cribs are no longer allowed to be sold. Going forward, only cribs that were manufactured after June 2011 and do not have a drop side can be consigned at The One Week Boutique. More details at the CPSC Website  .
