The Sandwich High School Prom and Special Occasion Dress Consignment Sale is this week.

Residents can bring their gently used dresses to the Timber Creek Inn & Suites Convention Center on Route 34 in Sandwich. For a $5 fee (per dress) their dress will be included in the sale and the owner will receive 70 percent of the sale price.

Dresses will be accepted from 5 to 8 p.m. today. Accessories such as shoes, purses and jewelry also are welcome with no additional fee with a dress consignment. Items should have been worn to an event within the past four years and the group has the right to refuse any item not in acceptable condition. Participants should be prepared to share the dress’s history.

The sale hours are 3 to 9 p.m. Thursday and Friday; 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday; and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday.

Pick-up times for unsold dresses will be 4 to 8 p.m. Monday and Tuesday.
