Divine Consign

Back to school...finally! Did I say that? Don't get me wrong, we had a great summer...church camp, mission trip to Honduras and the great American road trip of the west. But it's time to get some structure back into our lives and school's just the thing to do it. I am already missing my kids today and can't wait to hear about their day.

By looking at the tagging numbers, you can tell us moms have a little more free time. Many consignors have been busy tagging today, and as we thought, the numbers are rising fast. We also have about 20 new consignors signing up every day! Ladies (and gentlemen), I hope you start working on your tags very soon. We're going to hate it if people who are registered don't get to sell, because they waited too long to tag.

There is a delicate balance between too many items and not enough in our 3 locations. A year ago, we accepted too many items in Plano and we were sorry later. We won't let that happen again so when we reach our cut off numbers, we will lock the sale and no one, even if they have been registered for weeks, will be able to enter more items. So PLEASE get to tagging! We want this to be the best sale ever for Divine Consign!

Happy tagging,

Woo Hoo!! I was the 100th customer at Chick-fil-a today!!! I always wondered if they really did that and apparently they do. They rang the cowbell and everything. Very fun!

Which segues nicely into my topic today. We are partnering with local Chick-fil-a's to add more excitement to our sales. The Chick-fil-a cow will be passing out hugs and coupons on our first morning open to the public at all 3 sales. Who doesn't love Chick-fil-a? It's a staple in the Scott diet! Please support the following Chick-fil-a's that have been so great to partner with Divine Consign. If you are in their restaurant, tell them that you love Divine Consign. And be sure and hug the cow when you come to the sale! (But keep the burger away from the cow!)

(Consignors - The following Chick-fil-a's will be promoting our sales at their restaurants. If you are in the area, please run by and thank their managers. They are reaching customers who may shop your items for the first time. (more customers=more sales!)

I spent part of my morning hanging up clothes in Ellie's room today and putting away things that always seem to pile up on her chaise lounge. It's one of those places where I will find anything and everything. The lounge is the perfect size for an 8 year old and I found it at the sale, of course! I remember spotting it and having that "I've got to have it" feeling because the fabric is the exact fabric that I bought to make a valance for her room 8 years ago! I had visions of seeing her curled up in it, reading her books and while she has done that before, more often than not, it's a great place to stash something for the time being. She's already told me that we aren't getting rid of it, ever, so maybe we've created a family heirloom!

If you have a great story about a special find at Divine Consign, we would love to hear about it.

Oh my goodness...today is crazy! Stephanie's been on the phone constantly, signing up volunteers and I'm working on the 90 emails in our inbox (as soon as I answer one another two pop up!) in between phone calls. This is GOOD crazy, though.

We're so excited that registration has finally started. We work so hard before registration begins, it's great when everyone else can finally join us.

Guess I'd better quit blogging and get back to work!

Wow! I can't believe today is finally here. It has been 135 days since we moved out of the Arlington Convention Center and said goodbye to a wonderful Spring season.

Our "off season" has been so great. Tim and I escaped to Santa Fe for a couple of days and Tina and David took their kids on the great American road trip up the West Coast. I have enjoyed sleeping until 9am most mornings (don't curse me!) and Tina spent a week at Youth camp. It has been a wonderful, lazy summer and as nice as that has been, I am ready to start our fall/winter season.

Besides spending time with our families, Tina and I have spent much time planning for this season. We've put so much thought into making this the best season ever. We hope you agree! We will continue to use this blog space to update you on our plans for the season. This blog will give us the chance to share with you, on a more personal level, some of our thoughts and stories that occur during a season. And we hope you'll respond.

So, here we go....Hello Fall/Winter!!
