  • Any crib manufactured prior to July 2010 cannot be sold or donated.

 

Merchandise Information

  • When selecting your items to sell please keep in mind the higher the quality the better it sells.

  • Items “in-season” tends to sell best. Ex: Spring sale, be sure to bring your light jackets, swim suits, shorts, jumpers, and other spring and summer outdoor toys.

  • Items that are clean sell better!  Wipe down plastic items, wash clothes that have been stored, and dust off items that have been untouched really does help them sell more quickly.

  • There should be no stains or holes in clothing or broken toys, such items will be pulled from the sales floor at our discretion. At the end of the sale it is your responsibility to look through the pulled item bin, anything left behind will go to charities.

  • **Be sure that your toys are in working condition-Include batteries and a note of what is working or not and list any missing pieces**.

  • For safety reasons, baby food and formula will not be accepted for sale.

  • Bundle items together (gender specific or similar topic) to make them more desirable.  Creating an outfit rather than selling each item separately make it more appealing.  Bundling books or bundling similar toys are a great idea.  Use rubber bands, safety pins, blue painters tape or zip-lock bags as appropriate.  Bundle them in such a way as to allow all items to be seen (so that items are not overlooked for fear of stains, tears, etc.).

  • Tags should be affixed to items in a way that does not damage the item, cover size, or other product information when possible. Do not use staples or straight pins or paper clips. (See policies)

Helpful Hints to Tagging:

Tags should ONLY be printed on white paper.  Do NOT use: Sticky labels or Colored paper

Use a safety pin or tagging gun to secure the tag to clothing, in the manufacture tag or seam. 

Do NOT use: Straight pins, Staples or Paper Clips.

 

CLOTHING:

Each item must have a securely attached tag. If you are using a tag gun, please insert the needle in a seam or in the clothing’s tag. If you are using safety pins we recommend you find a place on the clothing not in a prominent spot. Both can create holes in clothing and there is nothing more disappointing than getting home to realize the shirt you liked most has a big hole on the front breast. Therefore, please attach the tag with the safety pin or tagging gun to the manufacture tag or seam of each clothing item. 

Please button, snap, or zip ALL clothes. Try to group small items together.

 
ONESIES AND BIBS: If you would like to sell onesies as a group, just pin them all together at each shoulder and tag on the front onesie. Same with bibs, just use a large safety pin to group them together.

SOCKS: Put in a Ziploc bag but not stuffed to the brim so that all socks can be inspected easily. Or sell as sets pinned together with a safety pin.

SHOES: The cleaner they are, the better they will sell. Tie shoes together with CABLE TIES or packaged in a clear Ziploc type bag . Pin tag to cable tie or laces or taped to the bag..

TOYS/EQUIPMENT:

Clean, clean, clean all toys, equipment, strollers, high chairs, etc. If an item of yours is dirty, it may not sell.

Use tape to secure tag to item. 

Make sure all items with batteries are working. (A good place to find inexpensive batteries is at a Dollar Store.)

Toys that have small parts should be bagged together and attached with tape or ziptie to the larger item.


Board games, puzzles and other boxed items should be sealed with masking tape or blue painters tape (not package tape, which tears the box).  Please ensure ALL pieces are included with any items that you sell.  

Idea for puzzle pieces is to secure in a large Ziploc bag and tape to the back. Please do not tape puzzle pieces down or place barcodes on the face of the puzzle. It will tear off the picture!

BOOKS:

We often get A LOT of books. Unless they are well known sought after books or series we recommend you group books together for 1 set price or price very low.  You can secure with rubber bands or string, or you can put them inside a Ziploc bag and tape shut. PLEASE LIST ALL BOOKS TO BE SOLD TOGETHER ON THE TAG

CDs, DVDs, etc:

Please make sure that the correct item is in the correct case. Please check the back of your DVD's for scratches and cleanliness! Tape shut and add consignor tag to back of case with tape.

 

Price to Sell! Please try not to overprice your items. We realize how much they mean to you, but this is a resale event. Most prices should be at least 1/3 of the retail price.
