Recycled Rubber Guidelines

Recycled Rubber is an event that is usually held at Art 'n Soul the first full weekend of each month. Customers bring in items they are no longer using, and sell them through the store to receive store credit. You do not have to sell items to come and enjoy the sale. If you do choose to sell your gently used items, you can price them, or we can. If you wish to sell items in Recycled Rubber, these are the Guidelines

Art ’n Soul Used Stamp Sales (Recycled Rubber) Effective Feb.2016

To Our Wonderful Customers:

1. The items we accept are the following—-
* Useable rubber stamps (wood mounted, cling and clear). NO FOAM STAMPS.

(more foam has come in lately; remember that we don’t accept these)
* Loose cling or clear stamps (must be in zip-lock bags or clear packaging)
* Decorative Paper and Card Stock (must be bundled in packages)
* Magazines and books related to stamping; all magazines are priced at $.50
* Ink pads, inkers, embossing powders, glitters, small beads, peel offs, ribbon, stickles, paints and

small tools; all items must be in good, workable condition, and packaged appropriately.
* Dies, punches, embossing folders and stencils

Examples of items we do not accept are bulky embellishments, scrapbook albums,
or non stamp related items. Our space is limited; if you bring large items like storage containers, they must be brought no earlier than the day before the sale, and picked up no later than the day after the sale. When you bring your items to the store, we reserve the right to respectfully decline to try to sell them if they do not meet our criteria. Help us keep our RR sales “stamp related” by taking garage sale type items to the thrift store.

2. Art ’n Soul receives a 15% commission on all items brought to recycled rubber sales.


First, we determine whether your initials are already taken by another customer and create a code for you. You need to mark every item with this code in pencil just in case the sticker label comes off.

You may bring in your items at any time, and please put your name on the bag or box you bring in. Note, if you bring them in later than the Wednesday before the sale for us to price, we may not have adequate time to price them and will put them out the following month.
As of February, 2016, we ask you to put removable labels on each item. Avery 5412 or 5418 are the best size; these can be found at office supply stores. Please do not use washi tape, round garage sale stickers or other sticky labels. If you price the items, you need to put a label on each item with your code, the month of the sale, and the price. If our staff prices your items, you still need to put labels with your code and the month on each item, and we will add the price. Please put your labels on the top surface of the stamp.

Stamps go on sale the first full Saturday and Sunday of each month, with a few exceptions. We will display your items for about 5 months. At that time, we donate them to charities. If you prefer to reclaim your unsold stamps, you may come in during a RR sale to do so.
It takes some time to add your credits after the sale, and transfer the amount to your store credit cards. Usually, your credit is available about a week after the sale.

If you have any questions, please let us know. Thank you for participating and we appreciate your business.
