The Company Store/ White Elephant Sale will be combined into one event. You can sell your new or gently used railroad related items. Items to be sold must be marked "AS IS"if they have missing parts. If your items sell, Division 8 will charge the seller a 10% commission for conducting the sell.
Persons selling items will be required to fill out a three part form for each item. These forms will be used as a cross reference and serve as a receipt to person selling items. Three part forms will include sellers registration number, price of item, and description of item.
If you are selling items for your division we will need the following information on a typed sheet of paper to be used by Division 8 as a cross reference. Division 8 will charge a 10% selling fee.
- The quantity and price of each item you are leaving with us.
- Division number, name of contact person, cell phone number and email address.
- Name and address of person to whom we should send the check following the Convention.
- Each item needs to have price of item, and Division number attached to it. This can be accomplished with a price sticker.
Unsold items must be picked up within one hour after the close of the banquet. Please bring your yellow copy of the 3-part sales form as a claim check. If you want to pick up your item (s) before this time see a Company Store staff person who will check out your item(s).
Unsold items not picked up after the banquet may become the property of Division 8 if not picked up within two (2) weeks after the Convention. If you want unsold items shipped, you will have to pay shipping and handling charges plus a hassle fee for us to return them.
Payment for individual and Division sells will be made in the form of a Division 8 check to be sent out following the Convention, no payment will be made at any other time.
BECAUSE CHECKS WILL BE SENT TO SETTLE UP FOR YOUR ITEMS SOLD, IT IS IMPERATIVE THAT WE HAVE A CORRECT AND LEGIBLE CONVENTION REGISTRATION NUMBER ON THE THREE PART FORM.
There will be a maximum limit of 20 items to be sold per individual. Hours of operation will be posted in the Convention timetable.
Our Company Store will take cash or personal checks for payments. We will not accept credit cards. Sorry for the inconvenience.
