Standardized Dress Consignment Sale

This event provides families with the opportunity to sell and purchase gently used standardized dress items in preparation for the upcoming school year.

  • Ways to Participate in the Sale

    If your students have outgrown their clothing, please consider participating in our consignment sale. We offer two options:

    1. Donate your gently used items.
    2. Sell your items through our sale
      • You will receive 90% of the proceeds from your items.
        (Westminster retains 10% to offset the costs of the sale)
      • We ask that all articles of clothing be on hangers with an itemized list and tagged according to the guidelines.
      • Any items found without tags, hangers, or an itemized list will be considered a donation.
      • Inventory will be kept in a locked room between sale dates.

    We are unable to accept Spirit Wear for resale.

  • How to Prepare Items for Sale
    • Print out the tags and itemization list forms.
    • Use colored paper, if possible, to print your tags; this is helpful in the sorting process.
    • Launder used clothing, and do a spot check for stains. We cannot sell stained items.
    • Fill out the itemization list to be turned in with your items; keep a copy for your records.
    • Your Seller ID# will be the last four digits of your cell phone number followed by your last name initial.

    • Please indicate on each tag if you would like to discount your items the last two days of the sale, by 50% of your original price, by circling Y or N by “Reduction.” If not marked, we will assume no discount is to be offered.
      • Attach completed tags to the garments with SAFETY PINS (no stick pins or tape) on the upper right-hand side above the Westminster logo for shirts and on the right side waistband for bottoms.
      • Hang shirts on wire hangers with the opening facing left.
