All persons who know or suspect that they have still have consigned goods at Four Seasons that did not sell at an auction must pick up their goods from Four Seasons on Saturday April 30, 2016.

Consignors will be required to provide a copy of their consignment agreement and a list of the property which was originally consigned. Consignors will also need to bring a picture id, preferably a driver’s license. If the person retrieving the goods is not the person who consigned the goods, the consignor needs to contact the Receiver and arrange for proper written authority to be provided to the Receiver authorizing the person who will pick up the consigned goods. The Receiver’s email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
If a consignor is unable to pick up his goods on April 30, 2016, the consignor must contact the Receiver at the email address above to make other arrangements. A fee of $50 may be charged. Any goods remaining at Four Seasons after April 30, 2016 are subject to being auctioned with the property of Four Seasons at any time after April 30, 2016.
