Drop-in Service 

Drop-in service is here again! Our service has experienced some changes during the break, so please read our changed instructions carefully.

Despite the changes, the principle remains familiar and safe:

Price your products at home and "drop" them to our flea market during our opening hours. We'll take care of the rest.

The service cost: 50 % sales commission 

You don't have to make a table reservation - Our staff will do it for you. You can come to our flea market and tell us that you want to start the Drop-in selling period. You can also send us a booking request for the selling period by email, text message or call. 

Do this:

  1. Price your products on your Kirppari-Kalle -account or the mobile app.
  2. Ask the staff to book for you Drop-in -selling period.
  3. Pick up your price sheets from our store or ask the staff to mail them for you (postage 4,20€). Along with the price sheets, you will receive instructions regarding the selling period and some safety pins and tags.
  4. Bring your priced products to the flea market cashier. 

Mailing of price sheets

When the price sheets drop to your mailbox, please attach them to your products. In the envelope you'll get more instructions, some safety pins and an empty extra price sheet just in case.

Frequently asked questions

You must use only the price tags from Kirppari-Kalle -system. You cannot make your own tags, because every single product has to have the barcode of Keskustan Kirppis.

  1. Sign in Kirppari-Kalle -account or the mobile app and go to "Product pricing"
  2. Click "Create a new product sheet"
  3. On the new row, click "Edit prices". Write the product descriptions and prices on the 30 lines. Remember to click "Save" every now and then.
  4. When you have filled one sheet, you can create a new one and keep on going. Max 5 sheets is allowed in one Drop-in selling period..
  5. When you are done pricing your products, send us a text message, and we'll mail you the product sheets. OR: You can also pick up the sheets form our store - no text needed.

Tips on pricing:

Pay attention, that every price tag states the product name and price. We do not sell products, that are missing this information. We recommend to describe the products as detailed as possible. (In Kirppari-Kalle you can fit 30 characters, but you can elaborate by handwriting.)

  • Dark blue curtains 200cm
  • Red sneakers size 39
  • Marimekko shirt bl/wh M

This method prevents crimes, like switching cheap-priced tags to an expensive product. Sizes and measurements helps the customers to buy your items and make you better profit!

Attach the price tags carefully, especially to clothes and fabrics, because the sticker doesn't hold on fabrics. We do not sell products without a price tag, instead they are taken to Lost & Found Room. Use safety pins, cardboard+threads, or stapler. Please do not use sewing pins,since they are painful and inconvenient for staff, in fitting rooms and dog paws (we are an animal-friendly flea market).

You can bring your priced products to us no earlier than 2 days before the selling period starts, or on the first day of your selling period at the latest.

The sales tables used in Drop-in service are large tables with a clothes rack. These tables can hold an average of two large Ikea bags, depending on the products you sell.

If all the products you bring do not fit on the table at the start of the selling period, you have two options to choose from:

  • You can pick up your extra products from us within 3 days from the start of your selling period. 
  • You can leave your extra products to us, in which case we will charge a storage fee according to the price list. For the first 3 days, we store your products free of charge. The price of the storage fee includes the table filling service during the selling period.

If you decide to leave your extra products to us for storage, please limit the amount of products to one large Ikea bag.

You can choose what happens to unsold products. We will ask you, do you want to...

  1. (FREE) Donate the rest of the items to the flea market, and let the staff empty the table. 
  2. (FREE) Come empty the table yourself.
  3. (10,00 €) Ask the staff to empty the table and pack them for you to pick up within 3 days.

 The staff will ask you this before your selling period starts.

The staff's job:

  • Mail you the price tags (unless you want to pick them up from the store)
  • Setting up the table
  • Tidying up the table during the selling period
  • Putting the -50% sale tag on the whole table for the last 2 selling days
  • Emptying the table
  • Responsible recycling for the donated items
  • Transferring the sales profits to your bank account

Your job:

  • Fill and attach the price tags on your items
  • Dropping your products at our flea market

Keskustan Kirppis transfers the sales profits only to a Finnish bank account. Make sure you add your bank account number on your Kirppari-Kalle -account before your selling period ends. The profits are transferred to you in 5 banking days after your selling period ends. Keskustan Kirppis does not do cash handouts. 

You can track your sales by signin in to your Kirppari-Kalle account or the mobile app. Please note that the "Current balance" shows the whole sales profit, from which the 50% sales commission and possible other charges you chose, will be reduced.

The service doesn't include a cleaning fee, but we will tidy your table at least every other day. 

Yes you can. You can bring your stuff and set them up straight to your table: 

  • Price the products at home and bring them to your sales table, if you still have price tags left. 
  • Alternatively you can fill the price tags online on your Kirppari-Kalle account. Then bring your stuff to us and ask for the filled-out price sheets, attach them to your products and set them to your table.

You can continue your Drop-in selling period, if your table is free after your reservation ends. Extension week is charged according to the price list. 

The selling period cannot be extended by individual days, but the extension is automatically another 8-day selling period.
