The better they look, the better they sell! Please take time to wash and iron your clothes if necessary. Please check for stains, broken zippers, torn hemlines, etc. We will be double checking at the store and will not receive any item that is not in excellent condition.
WE DO LIMIT NEWBORN CLOTHING ITEMS (SIZES 0-9 MONTHS) TO 30 HANGING ITEMS PER GENDOR PER CONSIGNOR, 20 HANGING CLOTHING ITEMS IN JUNIOR (HIGH SCHOOL) SIZES, MATERNITY CLOTHING ITEMS TO 15 ITEMS PER CONSIGNOR. YOU WILL DEFINITELY WANT TO BRING YOUR BEST ITEMS IN THESE CATEGORIES.

Use children's plastic hangers for sizes 10 and below. Use larger plastic hangers for sizes 12 and above. No metal hangers, please! These can snag and tear your items. Plastic hangers can be purchased at discount stores or feel free to use the free plastic hangers you get at some retail stores. This makes shopping more pleasant for everyone!
We will accept ACCEPTABLE ITEMS - At our Fall/Winter Event, we will receive Fall and Winter Clothing and Shoes (Children's, Junior, and Maternity). Costumes, holiday attire, heavy fleece and sweaters, winter coats, winter boots, tennis shoes, sports attire/equipment are all big sellers at our Fall/Winter Events. PLEASE SAVE ALL SWIMWEAR, OPEN TOE SUMMER SANDALS AND FLIP FLOPS for our next Spring and Summer Event (we will not be accepting them this season!)
Please group items together so that they will equal a value of at least $3.00. They need to be pinned together as well so they don't get separated. Infant sleeping gowns or onesies and children's pajamas are great to group together as a set of 2 or 3. They may be pinned together on one hanger.
All pants must be clipped or pinned to a hanger, not folded over, as they tend to end up on the floor and shoppers want to see the entire pant to purchase.
Safety pin all sets and accessories securely together with pants hung on the back of the shirt. Both pieces need to be viewable without unpinning them. Another good option for outfits is to hang the top and bottom separately and bundle the two hangers together with a rubber band.
We will be accepting like-new shoes! Shoes are difficult to tag, so please follow these guidelines to be sure shoes remain together:
1) Write your consignor number, size, and price on masking tape, placing on bottom of both shoes.
2) Safety pin the price tag to a shoe lace or through the shoe eyelet.
3) Place both shoes (with attached price tag) inside a Ziploc bag.
It is best to package a bedding set together in its original clear plastic bag with zipper. If you no longer have the original bag, you can purchase Extra Large Ziploc plastic bags at discount stores. Seal the bag with clear packing tape and pin the string tag to the bag. It also helps to write your consignor number and price on the Ziploc bag with a Sharpie in the case that the tag comes off during the sale. Shoppers also like to see a picture of the set (if one is available) or a list of all the items included in the set. Tape these items inside the Ziploc bag. PLEASE NOTE, WE ARE NOT LONGER ACCEPTING CRIB BUMPERS.
Hang and pin blankets over hangers so that shoppers can see them. If they are small receiving blankets, group 2 or 3 together in a Ziploc bag and seal with clear plastic tape.

Games should be taped closed. Puzzles, books, videos and small toys should be grouped accordingly and put in ziploc bags. Secure with clear packing tape and pin tag to the ziploc bag. It is also good to write your consignor number and info on the ziploc bag with a Sharpee in case the tag comes off. Puzzles should be wrapped securely in clear Saran wrap to keep the pieces intact. TOYS NOT PACKAGED APPROPRIATELY WILL BE TURNED AWAY.
We will only accept Disney or Build a Bear stuffed animals in like new condition.
Large Little Tikes Toys and Furniture are in high demand! When tagging large toys it is best to also attach a piece of masking tape to the toy with your consignor information. This will enable us to sell your toy even if the tag comes off! We sell 95% of Toys, Furniture and Baby Equipment!
