Ready To Place Your Order?

Great! First step is to fill out your Consolidation Order Form (#2). To place your order online, log in to your online account. Once you are logged in you will see your reduced prices. If you see full pricing you likely don’t have an online account and can create one. You may also fill out your Consolidation Order Form and email it in with your credit card information. Lastly, you may read your form off via phone with a credit card payment. If you do choose to mail it in with a money order, please send it with tracking. Closer to a major holiday (Christmas, Mother’s Day) you must use expedited shipping to mail in your order if you want items back before a specific date.


When Will I Get My Order?

Your order will take up to 2 weeks to arrive, provided there are no additional delays with the mail carriers or weather delays. Again we stress ordering as early as possible. Once your order arrives you can then make arrangements to distribute to your customers.

Additional Tips In Placing Your Order

As long as your order has a minimum subtotal of $200 – YES! Congratulations, you did it, your order qualifies!! Let’s break that down… You need to sell at least $340 worth of merchandise at the retail price. You then KEEP $140 as your 40% profit, and we only charge you the $200 (60% rate) plus shipping. That’s for the first order of the season. For all re-orders your order minimum is just $100, allowing for additional add-on customers. We have two seasons: Fall/Winter and Spring/Summer.

If your cart ends up showing you retail prices – don’t worry – that just means you haven’t reached the $200 order minimum requirement. Once you add enough items to your cart the prices will then change to the 40% off rate.

If you are placing a re-order that is under $200, you must place that offline. All online orders need to be at least $200 otherwise you will see retail pricing.
