June 16, 2012
  • Download the seller instructions and inventory form for more detailed information.

  • If you'd like to sell your items, please drop them off at Coach Uhrle's house by Thursday, June 14th, so I can inventory and tag them prior to the re-sale.  You don't need to bring the items on hangers - all items folded neatly into a plastic bag is fine.  Please complete and include the inventory form and a self-address-stamped-envelope with your items.
  • The suggested asking prices per items are as follows: Shell $30 - $40, Skirt $20 - $30, Nylon bodyliner (2010 style) $5 - $10, Microflex bodyliner (2011 style) $15 - $20, Briefs $5 - $10, Shoes $20 - $35, and Poms $10 - $15
  • At the sale, buyers will write checks payable directly to each seller, and I will mail them to sellers on Monday, June 18th.  I will hold onto any unsold items should anyone need to purchase a uniform piece during the season, unless you instruct me otherwise.
