The Children’s Museum’s consignment sale uses web-based technology to streamline the process of consigning items, scheduling volunteers and automating sales. “People interested in consigning log in all of their sale items electronically,” Children’s Museum Consignment Sale Manager Joy Mueller explained. “Once all the items are entered, the web program generates and prints bar-coded tags that get attached to each item. Clothing is all organized by size to make shopping easier, and the tags clearly state the brand and price of each item. We use hand-held bar-code scanners for easy check-out, then consignors can log in and see which of their items sold and how much money they have earned.”

At the conclusion of the sale, consignors may pick up their unsold items or sign-off to have the Children’s Museum donate their items to local charities
