Bag Sale News & Business Updates
Fill-a-bag Event
UPCOMING BAG SALE: Usually in January we would be announcing details for our February Storewide & Bag Sale. However, at this time I do not feel I can have the bag sale while following safe COVID-19 protocols. I do not trust the weather in February to allow us an outside bag sale as I did in August, and the basement is just not safe for too many people to shop together. We will have a sale in March, and I will announce in February what that will look like depending on current restrictions and how the rate of infection is looking at that time. Thank you for understanding as we all try to navigate this ever-changing health crisis.
NEW PAYMENT POLICY: I have updated our consignment agreement with a few small adjustments from integrating the COVID addendum changes into the agreement.

The primary change is our new PAYMENT POLICY. We will no longer automatically mail your check at the end of the 100-day consignment. Your account balance will remain on your account until used in-store (with a 25% bonus) or you request a payout. To request a payout of your available balance you may either:
  • come to the store and pick it up for no charge, or
  • request a check to be mailed to you at any time for a $1.00 fee. Request via email or phone and the check will be mailed the following business day.

The new policy goes into effect on all new consignments beginning January 8, 2021. I will continue to mail checks at the end of the consignment period for accounts with active consignments as of January 7th.
Current Open Hours
OPEN HOURS: Our open hours remain the same based on Governor Inslee's Healthy Washington — Roadmap to Recovery phased recovery plan announced January 5th and going into effect January 11th. We are currently open for shopping Tuesday - Saturday, 11:00 am - 6:00 pm. Retail stores such as ours can remain open at 25% of maximum occupancy, which we never have a problem meeting with our large store. We continue to require facemasks (free ones available) and follow other safety protocols detailed in our COVID-19 Response post. Many people continue to say they did not know that we're open, so please spread the word that we have safe shopping options!!

Our consignment drop-off & appointment guidelines remain the same as well and can be reviewed at www.twobigblondes.com/consign.
January Consignment
We are now taking consignment again following the same drop-off policies:
  • 20 items or less: you can drop-off without an appointment on Saturdays 11:00 am - 5:00 pm.
  • More than 20 items: fill out the Consignment Appointment Request form and we will be in touch by email to make an appointment.

In January we're beginning a shift away from winter clothing but it's not quite Spring yet either. In addition, we will take year-round clothing pieces. Please review our January Consignment post for more information.

After no consignment for a month and our store, we are ready to restock on all categories! We are especially looking for rings (all sizes, but size 10 & up is a plus), purses, & shoes!
