Online Consignment Store for Educators Debut

Online Consignment Debuts on Teacher Appreciation Day

A first-of-its-kind online consignment will be launching this week for teachers to buy and sell gently used classroom supplies. “Pass The Apple” is pleased to announce on May 3rd, National Teacher Appreciation Day the launch of, a first of its kind online consignment store for teachers. gives teachers the opportunity to find gently used classroom supplies that they can use in their classrooms for significantly less than they would pay in stores.

The online consignment shop seeks to help teachers manage their limited budget supply by finding used supplies for a much cheaper price than in-stores. Products are sold at 50-80 percent less than retail. Additionally, a partnership between Pass The Apple and helps fund projects listed by teachers on Donors Choose, known as The Giving Tree. This organization helps teachers around the country get funding for classroom supplies, new technology, and field trips.

Whenever someone makes a purchase on, they are given the option to round up their purchase to the nearest dollar. Those extra cents are then donated to member-created projects on

I wish that something like this were around when I taught middle school. I spent an enormous amount of money to supply my classroom, my bulletin boards, the classroom walls, and also my students with educational materials. Hell, I even purchased my own copier/printer and a computer, and guess how much that cost in the early 2000’s! This is great! I hope it is a success, because from my memory, teachers are allowed much less than $500 for financed purchases. During my tenure, it was only $250-for an entire school year, and I also taught two subjects-ELA and Social Studies. So, teachers, school based staff, and educators in other settings, there may be hope for your already tight budgets and your wallets may be slightly fatter. This is definitely one to watch!
