How are items priced?
Our pricing formulas include:
To calculate a Wholesale Price
- Hourly wage ($) × Hours to make item + Materials cost = Wholesale Price
(i.e. $10.00 × 15 hours + $150.00 Materials cost = $300 Wholesale Price)
To Calculate Retail Price from Wholesale Price
Kari’s Treasure Trove consignment fee is a 55/45 Split (55% to Consignor/ 45% to Gallery)
- [Base Price × 45/55] + Wholesale Pric
(i.e $57.65 × .82 + $57.65 = $104.92)
To Calculate Price for a Specific Sales Commission
- $$ wanted ÷ .55 = Retail Price
(i.e Consignor wants $250 for item: $250 ÷ .55 = $454.55 Retail Price)
General Resale Pricing for used items
- Excellent Condition: Up to 70% of Current price for new item
- Good Condition: Up to 50% of Current price for new item
- Average Condition: Up to 30% of Current price for new item
What is CAPSS?
- CAPSS is the California Pawnbroker and Secondhand dealer System
In accordance with AB391, which was passed on August 17, 2012, new procedures for California Pawnbrokers (PBs) and Secondhand Dealers (SHDs) when reporting property transactions to their Local Law Enforcement Agencies were established. PBs and SHDs will be required to use a single, statewide, electronic reporting system, which the California Department of Justice has developed and is known as the California Pawn and Secondhand Dealer System (CAPSS)
- What does that mean to consignors?
Upon acceptance of a seller’s item for consignment, the seller must provide a valid form of identification and submit their signature and fingerprint electronically for the CAPSS database as the legal owners of the item(s).
- Is there any exception to CAPSS compliance?
No, ALL items accepted for consignment are required to be submitted to CAPSS, regardless of size, age, or value. Yes, even original items created by artists or others.
More information on the CAPSS system can be found on the California Department of Justice Website.
