Another Win-Win Yarn Consignment Agreement with Riley in North Carolina

skeinsAs you may know, a lot of the yarn we sell is on consignment. There are many MANY reasons why a person or company decides to consign with us – but it’s always so rewarding when both parties (us, the Yarn Girls… and them, the consignor) have a positive experience with the process and the result from the sales.

Recently, we received a shipment from a lady who contacted us via a Google Ad we were running that stated we liquidate yarn. Riley, from North Carolina, sent us a beautiful selection of fibers (most of which you may have seen featured in our current auction on ProxiBid – click here to view before Sunday August 30th, 2015 at 2:00pm EDT). We sent Riley her earnings statement for a partial month and she was pleasantly surprised at how much we were able to liquidate her shipment for.

Here was her most-recent email reply (full names and email addresses omitted for anonymity):

Hello! First of all I got the spreadsheet and I am floored by the
numbers– I had no clue my mother’s yarn was worth so much! That’s a
year of tuition. Also, we came across another little stash of yarn in
the house and I think it would be worth sending up to you– lots of
Lorna’s Lace and Wollmeise, which I know are very fancy brands. There’s
some Cherry Tree Hill in there too.

musk-oxRiley: We LOVE hearing feedback like this (just wait until you see how much the cone of Musk Ox is selling for). Thank you for working with us.

It’s great when things work out this way. :)
