The Campus Store is located in the Tyler Brown Student Center in the Athletic Complex on Woodward's Main Campus and is your source for Woodward Academy spirit wear, gifts, school supplies, and uniform and textbook ordering information. The Campus Store also has a Snack Bar open to Upper School students and a Copy Services Center.
The Woodward Consignment Shop was established in 1986 by a forward-thinking group of parents as a way to raise funds for the Academy while also offering a valuable service to parents and students alike. We are staffed by parent volunteers who accept consignments of used books and uniforms, and later sell them for half of retail prices. The repurposing of these items supports the Academy’s mission of sustainability.
Thanks to the dedication of both volunteers and customers, the Consignment Shop has raised over one million dollars since its inception! Money generated by the Shop is given back to our students by supporting their social and educational activities, and funds generated are contributed to the Academy as well.
We look forward to seeing you and helping in whatever way we can as you prepare for the school year.

Used uniforms: We sell used uniforms at 50 percent of the retail price at Sue Mills, the official WA uniform store.
Used books: We sell used books at 50 percent of the retail price at MBS Direct, the official WA bookstore. To purchase books for your Middle and Upper School students, please bring the following items with you to the Consignment Shop:
- A copy of your student’s class schedule with course numbers. (This will be emailed to you in early July.)
- A printout of your MBS Direct shopping cart list of all needed books. (On MBS Direct, follow the prompts to choose each course on the student’s schedule. The needed books will be added to your shopping cart, along with a photo of the book cover. Print the entire shopping cart.)
Bringing these items with you will make locating books at the Shop much quicker!We do not sell new books or electronic books. These must be purchased from MBS Direct.
Consignment Shop Accounts: Open a Consignment Shop account, and let us sell your gently used uniforms and textbooks. The proceeds you earn can be used as store credit for your own purchases, and/or you can request a check be mailed to your address.
Contracts: When consigning, you will be asked to help us fill out your contract by listing items, sizes, and prices. We also will review the condition of each item. We only accept uniforms in very good condition. Your contract will remain active for one year. If the item does not sell after one year, it will then be donated to charity.
Consigning: When consigning, the selling parent will receive 60 percent of the selling price. The remaining 40 percent is given to the Parent Community.
Donations: You may donate items in good condition to the Consignment Shop, and all proceeds will go to the Parent Community. We can provide a blank, signed contract to be used as a tax receipt for your donations.
Quality of consigned items: When consigning, we will review the condition of the items. Items not suitable for consigning may be donated to charity. If at any time during the contract year we find imperfections with your consignment, we then reserve the right to donate the item to charity.
Books: Textbooks are sometimes discontinued. Although we cannot consign them in the Shop, you may donate them to be sold to a third party. All proceeds are given to the Parent Community.
Payment: Since the Consignment Shop has more than 1,000 active accounts, checks are not mailed automatically. You must call, email, or stop by the Shop to request a check. Please make a note to contact us before your contract expires, one year from the date you consigned items. After a contract expires, any money left in the account will be donated to the Parent Community.
Note: During our busy times, we will not be able to print a check while you are in the Shop but can take your information and mail the check to you. Always confirm the spelling of your name and your address for the mailing process.
Would you buy it? Take a close look at each piece of clothing and ask yourself if you would buy the item.
Is it clean and in good condition? Ensure all items are clean and in good condition (no tears, stains, broken zippers, paint, or pet hair). We have learned that the newer the item looks, the faster it will sell.
Be organized! Please organize your items by style, size, and color to speed up the consignment process.
- Example: All short-sleeve, size child small, blue polo shirts in one grouping. All size 10 skorts in another group.
Unsuitable items: Items not suitable for resale can be left for donation to charity. Most of our donations go overseas via The Uniform Project. We can donate non-logo items to local charities.
The Uniform Project was born when Consignment Shop volunteer, Beth Kempe, realized that many unsellable uniform items that were being thrown away still had plenty of wear. Many countries do not allow children to attend school without a proper uniform. Beth hated the idea of throwing away uniforms that could be helping someone, so in 2010 she began collecting and sorting uniforms from Woodward to donate to area church mission groups who were headed overseas. The Uniform Project has now grown to include many more private schools in the greater Atlanta area.
Countries with schools and orphanages The Uniform Project has helped include Guatemala, Jamaica, Kenya, Nigeria, India, Nicaragua, Honduras, Dominican Republic, Liberia, Tunisia, El Salvador, Haiti, Cameroon, Tanzania, Mexico, Ghana, and Zambia.
Beth was a longtime volunteer of the Consignment Shop and has two children who graduated from Woodward. Visit theuniformproject.org to learn more.
The Consignment Shop would not be available to Woodward families if we did not have volunteers. If you would like to be part of this wonderful volunteer group, please call or email us at the Shop for details. Most volunteers work one four-hour shift per month—e.g., the first Monday or fourth Wednesday—thus working with the same folks every month. Sign up with a friend for a scheduled monthly visit while you volunteer to help the Academy.
Volunteering not only helps the Shop, but it’s also a great place to meet other parents. A lot of valuable information about the Academy is shared here to help you navigate your Woodward journey.
If you would like to volunteer, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 404.765.4077.
