Start Haus's 4th Annual Consignment Sale

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Start Haus will be hosting our fourth annual Ski Swap and Consignment sale over the Labor Day weekend. This sale will give you a chance to unload...err sell that skis, clothing and gear that has been taking up space in the garage. Have your kids outgrown that race suit? Bring it to sell. Are your powder-boards lacking a little rocker? We know plenty of traditionalists who like full camber. Need another pair of skis to add to flesh-out your quiver? I am sure someone will be trimming down their own inventory.
 
When is the swap/consignment sale?
Labor Day Weekend. Fri-Mon
 
Where is the swap/consignment sale?
At the Start Haus in Truckee. 10990 Donner Pass Road. 530-582-5781
 
When can I drop off items?
From NOW till the sale.
 
What can I expect to sell (and buy)?
Skis, bindings, ski clothing (outer layers and race suits).
 
Will there be someone to help me?
While this is a self-serve sale, Start Haus staff will be there to assist, give direction and answer product questions.
 
Are you accepting old straight skis?
No, but feel free to bring them by and we will dispose of them properly.
 
What can't I sell?
Start Haus reserves the right to refuse any clothing/gear, but please do not bring any boots, helmets, base layer, hats, gloves, glasses, goggles or one-piece snow suits from 1974.
 
What's my stuff worth?
Start Haus's knowledgeable staff will help you price your items. Just like Antique Roadshow, except with more snow.
 
Can I buy new stuff?
Start Haus will have all leftover gear marked to "sell" along with the latest 2014 offerings.
 
What happens if my stuff doesn't sell?
Anything that doesn't sell will be stored at the Start Haus until October 15th. Any remaining gear will be donated or disposed of after that date. 
 
Post here or PM me with any questions.

Nice, labor day is the real deal for the start of the season! :-) Hope you guys have lots of fun! Even though I might not be looking for anything I always find sometime to go check the swap events! It's always fun!

My 191 ON3P Caylors with 4FRNT Deadbolt 15 bindings should arrive at Starthaus sometime this weekend for the sale. Being dropped off by some friends...

About 500 pairs of skis have arrived so far. There are some of the most well reviewed skis already checked in, skis like Blizzard Bonafides (173 & 180's), a full product line of Kastle including BMX98's, BMX108's. MX88's, LX82's and FX94's and big skis galore. Our local reps have dropped off slews of Fischers, Dynastars and Atomics. We have a great selection of race skis for both kids and adults. We expect to end up with close to 1,000 skis when the doors open on Friday. 

 

We will also have an expanded selection of Nordica blems at the sale with ski/binding packages starting at $149.00!!!

Will any skis be available online, perhaps once the consignment sale is over to the general public?  I'm looking for a setup for my wife.

Sorry, no. It will be an on premise sale for the used gear. If you are looking for something in particular, we might be able to do something over the phone.

I saw the video yesterday on the youtube channel. It reminds me of beach stuff, where people would stop by the curb to buy stuff... I hope you guys didn't cause any accident with people stopping by and asking about skis from the car!

How did the sale go? Any leftover BMX 108 in mid-180s?

Sales was incredible...an amazing 77% sell through of consignment gear. Both pair of leftover 108's weren't claimed and went to the dump. ;)
