Please carefully review all information and ask questions (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you need additional clarification. Thank you for being a special part of Mommy-Wise! All new consignors and volunteers need to initially register as "new" because you are new to the software system. If you participated in 2013 or the 2014 Spring Sale, you will use the username and password you established at that time. (email email@example.com if you forgot your username and/or password). If you need more than one "Check-In" time slot, please email Ashley Smith at firstname.lastname@example.org and you will be assigned a second slot.
You will be taken to our MyConsignmentManager.com webpage and will be able to process your registration fee through PayPal. You can also register to volunteer and for the New Arrival Preview Sale through this link.
