Thank you for your interest in becoming a consignor with us. When we began our sale in 2006 we had just over 100 consignors. Sixteen sales later, we now have an average of 350+ consignors who participate in our sale each season. To date we have raised over $550,000 for child-related ministries locally and abroad and for our church kindergarten.
Former consignors and volunteers have first priority at our sale when registration opens. Remaining spots are then opened up online to the public on a first-come, first-served basis. When these spots are filled, a waiting list is created. We do our best to fill these spots quickly as they become available.
We value our consignors and believe the quality of our sale depends greatly upon those who choose to participate with us. Realizing that there are numerous sales throughout Middle Tennessee, we treat our consignors like we want to be treated, and we do our best to insure that we provide the best consignment experience possible. We strive to make the entire consignment process simple, efficient, and profitable.

New this sale
- New book limit per consignor = 50 of your best books. We simply have been receiving too many books and we don't have the space to display them properly. By limiting the number of books per consignor we hope to have fewer books left over at the end of the sale to sort.
- Please be aware that the minimum number of items allowed per consignor is 50 accepted items. We are trying to encourage those who consign in order to shop early to volunteer instead so that we may reserve our consignor spots for those who have a genuine desire to consign their items. If you are consigning, make sure you bring enough items to drop-off to cover any that might be rejected for stains, holes, etc.
- No grab bags of miscellaneous items will be accepted. We don’t have a good space for them and they don't sell well.

At the Otter Creek Sale, you may print your own tags with barcodes using our tag template, or you may hand-write your tags on index cards. We have chosen not to use the pre-formatted online systems that many other sales use so that our consignors maintain control of the tagging option that works best for them.
Once you have been confirmed as a consignor, you may visit here to find specific information and detailed instructions on how to tag and prepare your items for our sale.

Child/Infant Policy at Early Shopping
This is our busiest, most congested time, and it makes things much easier and less chaotic to have this policy in place.
We thank you in advance for your cooperation with this policy, and we appreciate the efforts you make to find child care for your children during the early shopping time.

Your consignor number will typically be the first letter of your last name followed by the last four digits of your home phone number. We require all consignor numbers to begin with a letter. This makes our sorting process easier and faster.
If you are a returning consignor we ask that use and keep your previous number unless it is absolutely necessary.
Example: Mary Smith, phone 292-1234 Consignor Number = S1234
Your number will automatically be in the upper left-hand corner of your tags if you are using the tag file generator or a previous template file.
If you have a pre-existing number from another sale that you wish to use, you may submit a request when you register online or contact us via email.
All consignor number changes must be approved before you print your tags.
