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 checking your items at the store and will not receive any item that is not in excellent condition.
Use small PLASTIC hangers for sizes 10 and below. Use larger PLASTIC hangers for sizes 12 and above. You may also use wire coated hangers as long as they are 'size appropriate.' No metal hangers, please! Plastic and wire-coated hangers can be purchased at discount stores. This makes shopping more pleasant for everyone!

For our fall/event we will accept cold weather items, Christmas and Halloween themed outfits, Halloween costumes, long sleeves and jeans/pants. We will accept long school shorts. No flip flops. No sleeveless summer items or swimsuits.
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.
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 at the waist. Both pieces need to be viewable without unpinning them.
We will be accepting like-new shoes, sandals and flip flops! Please save all winter boots until our Back-to-School/Fall & Winter Event. Shoes are tricky to tag, so please follow these guidelines to insure shoes remain together: 1) Write your consignor number 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 ziptop bag. ALL SHOES MUST BE BROUGHT INSIDE A ZIPTOP BAG!
Hang and pin blankets over hangers so that the item is fully visible to shoppers. If you have small receiving blankets, group 2 or 3 together in a ziptop bag. Secure the bag closed with clear packing tape and tape or pin the string part of the tag to the outside of the ziptop bag leaving the tag itself free. Please do not stick the barcode label to the item or ziptop bag...only adhere it to a white string tag. It is also recommended to write your Consignor ID and price on the ziptop bag with a Sharpee in the case the tag comes off.
Toy recall information- Due to the high number of toy recalls during the past year, we will be inspecting toys very carefully. We reserve the right to pull any toy that we think might have been recalled. To help us, please do not bring any toys that have been subject to a recall. You may check the following website for current toy recalls: www.cpsc.gov/cpscpub/prerel/category/toy.html Also for a helpful resource made available by the Consumer Product Safety Commission Click here. Large Little Tikes Toys, Furniture, and Baby Equipment are in high demand! We typically sell 95% of them at our events. Use strong clear packing tape to secure the string part of the tag only to the large item leaving the tag itself free. Please do not stick the barcode label to the item or ziptop bag...only adhere the label to a white string tag. In addtion, please write your Consignor ID and price of the item on a piece of masking tape and attach to your large toys and children's furniture. This will enable us to sell your item even if the tag comes off!
If you have or could take a picture of the bedding on the bed or crib, it helps to sell the bedding and helps us post it on Facebook. 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 dollar 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 list of all the items included in the set. Tape this, along with the picture, inside the Ziploc bag.
