Do you take consignment items in your store?
Yes. We do.

How much do you charge for a consignment listing in your store online?
Thank you for asking! We charge very reasonable rates, and they even got better for the client...with no listing fees, the client pays those normally, they get more money in their pocket. We have a sliding scale for consignment rates which means: that the client gets most of the money, our rates start at 30% then go down and down as the amount increases for the item purchased. If you require further information, we can send you a list of fees we use.

Where do you get your USED items from?
We shop at a variety of stores, clearance sales, etc. Consignment from clients that don't have a computer, time to use one, care to run a business...we do the work of listing it, and receive a small consignment fee from the sale.

Do you have a phone number that we can reach you at, for personal customer service immediately?
We have a PC phone line. The phone number is 1-801-386-8637. For customers local to me, it is a long distance call. It is a PC phone, not a regular land line. PC to PC calls are FREE and can be made through Yahoo! Messenger using our store email. countytreasuredistributors@yahoo.com We answer the phone, when we are in, during the traditional work day and evening until 7pm EST. If no one answers your call, please leave a voice mail, try again later, or send an email.

Where do you get your NEW items from?
Good question! We had a 'brick and mortar' store and had suppliers, we still use them to purchase NEW items for sale online, as they were discounted, they sold well and popular.

Do you charge handling and if so, what is this cost and why do you charge?
Yes. We charge a small handling fee, dependant on the size of the item, dependant on packaging materials that we require, etc. Small: $1.50 or less. Packaging materials: If you purchase something that is very breakable, collectible, rare, etc. neither you nor we want it to arrive broken. We package it so carefully, you will be glad you paid for the extra packing materials. These will be noted CLEARLY in a listing, there are NO HIDDEN COSTS with our store. WE ARE UPFRONT WITH YOU. IF extra packaging is going to be required, we will mention it in the description of the item AND the cost for this. THIS HOWEVER is not optional at the customers choice because a broken item is useless to you. If you need any further assistance with this, just email us.

I have a budget, you are a FRUGAL kind of person, I am desperate to find the best deals for my wedding. CAN YOU HELP?
YES. I have planned weddings, baked cakes, made bridal gowns, head pieces, flowers, decorations, flower girls dresses, shopped with frantic brides....and it was all done...ON A BUDGET. You just email me...we will take if from there! I don't believe that weddings have to be a "debt ridden affair" with the bank account. Starting your wedded life together shouldn't mean that you start off by paying a HUGE amount for a wedding. Great as that one day is... you have a whole life together, spend some of that money on a great honeymoon or ... a toaster...LOL!!

What are shipping costs, how are they calculated, and where do you ship to?
We ship international. We choose the least expensive method and it is up to the customer if they would like it sent faster, etc. for a higher cost (we don't assume anyone wants to pay a lot, but you can if you want to!) Rates are calculated using the table that Canada Post provides for shipping.

I have been looking for a specific homeschooling or education item; can you find this for me?
Sometimes. We have been very blessed with our homeschooling and educational supplies. We have more than we are probably ever going to use. IT IS DEFINATELY worth asking!

I really liked an item that was for sale, it sold and I didn't get to buy it; do you have more?
Well...maybe and maybe not. It all depends on 'what' the item was. If it was a brand new item, there is a possibilty. If it was a used item, it is very unlikely. It is ALWAYS worth emailing us to ask though.

I have been looking for a specific outfit to wear to a .....(you name the function) and I just can't find anything! Can you help?
Maybe. I love to go on the hunt for bargains. My friends call me the Bargain Hunting Queen. I won't pay retail unless I have to. I just don't like to...when I know that the deals are out there, just waiting to be found! I would like to find you an outfit. BUT... I need some particulars and we need to talk about cost. If I purchase something, take pictures, and spend time going to the city... and you just can't stand it, then what? We can talk about it. Email me. It is always worth asking.

Do you do custom art work? (made to order)
Yes. The fees are reasonable. And it depends on what you are looking for.

top^

Do you do custom sewing? (made to order)
Yes. It depends on the item you want made. Am I a great seamstress? Well... not as good as my grandmother.

You homeschool AND run a internet store? How do you do both?
Yes, we homeschool. Yes, we have an internet store. We do both with balance. It is my hope that when the store is working well, my son (he is 9 1/2years old) will help with some aspects of the math, shipping, etc. as part of his education...on the job training.

I want to homeschool...can you help me?
Maybe. Email me your question (s) and let me know your general location (don't need/want an address- just if you are in Canada (province), the USA (the state) or other. Then we can take if from there.

How long have you been homeschooling?
At the end of this school year, it will be 3 full years.
