Clothing
  • We do not accept any clothing that has stains, tears, broken zippers, rips, pilling, fading, etc. 
  • Clothing must be hung on hangers.  We prefer wire hangers as they take up less space.
  • $4 minimum price on clothing.  You can bundle items together to create sets if desired.
  • Only in-season clothing accepted. (Sept-Dec sales: Fall/Winter clothing, Jan-May sales: Spring/Summer clothing)
  • Affix product tags with a tagging gun placed through the seam under the right-side arm pit or the sewn-in tag at the neck.
  • We only accept kids and junior girls clothing.  No women’s or men’s clothing is accepted (except maternity).
  • Check out our videoes below to see how to tag and hang your clothing. https://youtu.be/v3mfOpx2IBw 
Shoes
    • We accept shoes for all seasons.
    • All shoes must be cleaned top and bottom.
    • Do not include shoes with too much wear and tear. Check wear on heels, toes & soles.
    • Attach shoes together and the tag with zip ties, loop ties or curling ribbon.  
    • We accept all infant and kids’ shoe sizes.  We accept boys shoe size up to a men’s size 13.  We also accept women’s shoes (limit 3 per consignor).
    Toys
    • Toys that require batteries must have working batteries.
    • If the toys have loose parts, secure these extra parts in a plastic bag and securely tape them to the main toy.    If parts aren’t secured well enough, they will get lost and separated.
    • Tape your product information tag securely to the toy so that it cannot be torn off easily.
    • We suggest you put toys with multiple parts in clear plastic containers to help them stay together. (save your larger clear plastic pretzel containers or other food containers)
    Books
    • We accept all books for children and adults.
    • The minimum price on books is $1 (It’s the only category allowed under $4).
    • Put book bundles in ziplock-type bags or secure together with curling ribbon or painters tape (no rubber bands).
    • Use scotch or painters tape to affix tags to prevent damage.
    • We do not accept books with writing or torn pages/spines.
    Linens
    • Hang linens such as blankets, sheets, towel and sleeping bags over the hanger bar and secure with safety pins.
    • Attach tag with a tagging gun directly to hanging linens.
    • Put larger sets in large linen bags and close with tape.  
    • A handwritten list of enclosed items is helpful.
    • Tape tag to outside of bag on larger sets.
    Baby Equipment
    • Pack ‘n Plays will be displayed assembled and may not have any holes or rips in netting.
    • Ensure everything is clean – trays, pads, bars, etc. – spit up and gunk get caught everywhere!
    • If items have multiple pieces that might get separated (e.g. bouncy seats and their activity bars, the 7 pieces that come with your pack and play, cribs with 8 pieces), make sure that the product tag is on the main piece.  Hand write additional tags with your consignor #, the description and mark them with 1 of 8, 2 of 8, 3 of 8, etc.
    • Instruction manuals are always helpful – include them when you can.  Download them from the internet if you’ve lost them.
