UNSOLD ITEMS & PICKUP

BSF will begin updating an "unsold items" list around noon on Sunday. This list will be posted on this website page and updated regularly. Check it to see if your items sold. (We update this as quickly as we can enter sold items into the database, but it is possible that late-selling items may still appear on the list.)

You must pick up your unsold items between 2 p.m. and 5 p.m. on Sunday at the Fairgrounds. Any items left unclaimed by 5pm on Sunday, November 7, 2021 are permanently retained by Bridger Ski Foundation.

DONATE YOUR UNSOLD ITEMS TO BYEP:
New this year! You can choose to allocate any of your unsold items to Big Sky Youth Empowerment (BYEP) and provide vulnerable teenagers with the gear they need for BYEP's programs. BYEP is proud to provide all the necessary gear that participants need for their adventures--at no cost. You contribution can help remove barriers to local youth experiencing outdoor adventures. To give your unsold items to BYEP, you can notify us at check-in, or you can place items in the BYEP bin during pickup on Sunday, 2-5 p.m.

SOLD ITEMS


If an item sells, a 20% consignment fee goes to Bridger Ski Foundation. You will be mailed a check for the rest. (It typically takes a few weeks to finish processing all payments; it's a big job!)

 

PRO TIPS FOR sELLERS:


*Clean up your items. They will sell better.

*Note the size, color, and brand.

*Know what price to list your items at. (We suggest adding 3% to your price to cover the cost of credit card fees.)

*Take your time filling out your paperwork at drop-off.

*Take advantage of the option to lower the item's price on the second day of the sale.

*Give yourself plenty of time to get through check-in. (And thank our amazing volunteers who make this happen.)
