We suggest you set the price at 25-30% of the retail value. Baby Equipment, Furniture and Large Indoor/Outdoor Toys usually sell for more and are in high demand. We expect to have an abundance of 0-12 month sizes, so they must be priced competitively in order to sell. Maternity and Junior clothing are not shopped as heavily, so price these competitively also.

Place small items in a Ziploc bag and then seal the Ziploc with clear packing tape. If the small pieces belong with a larger item, attach the bag to the larger item using a safety pin or packing tape.

When I sell items in a Ziploc bag, how do I attach the string tag?

For all items in bags (except shoes), please attach the string tag to the outside of the bag. For shoes, the string tag must be attached to a shoe either with a safety pin or by looping it through itself around a lace, buckle or loop.

What if my item is not worth your minimum price guideline of $4.00?

If it meets our "excellent quality" standards, then group it together with one or two more similar items and sell them as a group. Pin the items together on a hanger, or group them in a Ziploc bag and put one price for the entire group. Clothing grouped together must all be the same size.

Should I iron my clothes?

Wrinkled clothes do not sell well! Remember, the better they look, the more likely they are to sell.

Can I enter additional batches?

Yes, you may enter additional batches using the same consignor ID number. You will only be charged the $10 participation fee once per consignor ID number. To start a new batch, log-in and click on the pink button labeled "Start New Batch."

What if there is a small amount of smoke odor in my children's clothing that I am bringing to sell?

We are not able to accept ANY clothing that has odor of any kind. When it is hung on the rack with other clothes, the odor spreads.
