About Volunteering at the Closet Envy Events

Our Volunteers are who make our Consignment Events SUCCESSFUL!  It takes an army to pull off a 3-day event like this!  So much work goes into it, and we really could not do it without our volunteers!  We like to THANK our Volunteers by giving them a pass to come shop our Pre-Sale before we open to the public.  The more shifts you volunteer for, the earlier you get to come shop, and the MORE fabulous things you get to buy at the best deals!!

WHY YOU SHOULD VOLUNTEER AT OUR EVENT

    • If you are a Consignor, you get back an additional 5% on your sales. A Consignor who does not volunteer, receives 70% on their sales.  A Consignor who DOES Volunteer, receives 75% on their sales PLUS a pass to come shop at the Pre-Sale.
    • Anyone who volunteers for at least ONE 3-hour shift gets a pass to shop at the Pre-Sale before we open to the public.
    • If you work THREE or more shifts, you get to come shop the Pre-Sale when the doors open at 5pm on Thursday, October 8th.
    • If you work TWO shifts, you get to come shop starting at 6pm.
    • If you work ONE shift, you get to come shop starting at 7pm.
    • Volunteering is FUN!!!!  You get to meet so many fun women!  It’s a great opportunity to make new friends, hang out with existing ones if you’re volunteering together, and be a part of this amazing event everyone will be talking about!

    • If you are unable to make a shift, please let us know ASAP, as we will need to find someone to cover your shift.  Unless you have someone to cover your shift, that’s even better.  PLEASE PLEASE before you cancel a volunteer shift completely, try to find someone to cover it, or get someone to switch shifts with you!
    • Please do not ask us to hold or purchase items before the presale. We must be fair and consistent to all our volunteers.
    • Please take your shift seriously!  Our sale is only as good as our volunteers!

What if I sign up for a shift and I’m not able to make it?

PLEASE we beg of you to give us as much notice as possible!  Your shift will have to be filled by someone else.  If you’re able to switch shifts with someone, or find someone else to work your shift we would greatly appreciate it.  However, we know things do come up last minute that are unavoidable, but we just ask to let us know ASAP!  If you NO SHOW a volunteer shift, and don’t fulfill your obligation, future participation in our sales will be suspended…that means Consigning, Volunteering, and shopping our Pre-Sales.  If you are a Consignor and NO SHOW a volunteer shift, a fee of $25.00 will be deducted from your check and you will not be able to participate in the future.  We know this sounds unreasonable to some people, but we take our Sale very seriously.  If we don’t have serious volunteers, the event will not be successful for everyone.
