Inspection Perfection

If you have 3 or fewer items rejected, you will be added to the IP list.  This means you bypass clothing inspection during drop off at the next sale.   As long as you do not have ANY items pulled from the sale floor for defects at subsequent sales, you will retain that status!  This saves you lots of time at Drop Off, so CHECK THOSE ITEMS WELL AND ONLY BRING YOUR BEST!
