Please add a legible, easy to see red star on your tag if you do not want your items to be sold for half price on Saturday.
Tags from other sales may be used as long as the information on the tag is the same as what we request on our tags. We are not selling tags before the sale. Tags can be purchased at Dollar Tree, Walmart, and Staples.
Please read the consigner instructions for every sale as things may change from season to season. Failure to read the instructions could affect the sale of your items.
Instructions for our consigners can be found here: Coming soon!
What to expect at drop off
First please make an appointment for dropping off your items. When you arrive to drop off your consignment items, please have clothing sorted by size and gender. Enter the building through the glass double doors at the front of the building. Tables will be set up on which you may place your items. Our volunteers will take care of your consigned items from this point forward. Before you leave, please make sure that you have picked up your pre-sale ticket and have taken note of the pick up time on Saturday. You may also bring your own self addressed stamped envelope. Drop off times will only be in the evening for this sale from 4 to 8 pm.
Tips to make the most money
Yes, we take junior’s sizes (0, 3, 5, 7) as well as young men’s sizes (S,M,L). Young men’s sizes should stay under a men’s large. This is because of limited rack space. We will accept misses sizes (8 – 10) as well. Please do not consign anything larger than a misses size 10.
Generally, it is best to price your items 50 – 75% less than retail. Clothes are usually priced $2 to $3 for everyday styles and brands from Cat and Jack, Faded Glory, Jumping Beans and Carters. You can charge more for brand-name clothing, such as Baby Gap, Guess, and Gymboree. You still want to keep the prices affordable though, so don’t price an item higher than $5, unless it is a coat, special dress or shoes, or a full outfit.
Remember, you are pricing to sell. Don’t think about how much you paid for an item. Consignment shoppers are looking for deals! Also, ask yourself, “Would I buy this for my child?” Cleanliness and condition matter in getting your items sold.
What Will and Won’t Sell
You can sell almost anything at a consignment sale, given that it is the right price and a desirable item. The hardest things to sell are those that are in large supply at a sale. Here are some examples: infant clothing (especially onesies), blankets, bibs/burp pads, feeding dishes, crib sheets, and stuffed animals. If the sale falls before Christmas time, then toys will sell quickly. Bigger “wish list” toys sell very well at a fall sale. Please bring them! In the fall we most always sell out of Halloween costumes as well. They are hot, hot, hot if priced reasonably.
Discount to Make Even More
We will offer a half price sale on Saturday morning. This is your last chance to make money and get rid of stuff. It is a good idea to allow your items to go half price.
Group Items Together
To sell your items at a higher price and at a faster pace, group like items together. For example, not many shoppers will want to buy a onesie for $2. However, shoppers will want to buy a set of five onesies for $5. You can also group similar books together or similar small toys together.
If customers can’t see your items, they don’t buy them. Case in point, pants! If your pants do not hang on the hanger properly they will not be seen amongst the clothes. Please avoid this:
Pants need to be hung as follows to ensure shoppers see them and you sell them!
Pants can also be hung on a hanger made for pants with the clips at the top.
Please do not price one clothing item to sell for $1 or less on a hanger. Items can be combined in an outfit or hang 2 “like items” together (Ex. 2 shirts) to sell for at least $1.50 or more. Here is how to hang an outfit.
Warning! Pins from Dollar Tree are not durable enough for pining pants or skits. They do not hold! Look for pins at Dollar General or Walmart for a much better quality to hold heavier items.
Where can you find hangers? – You may hang your clothes on any type of hanger available as long as the hanger is facing left (like a question mark) and clothes are secured on it. Toddler size hangers will not hold big kid size clothes, they always fall off (you lose sales). Some dry cleaners will give away wire hangers and wire hangers can be purchased at Dollar General as well (not Dollar Tree, although Dollar Tree has plastic hangers). Sometimes bundles of hangers are sold at Goodwill as well.
Finally, maternity clothes will not sell unless they are in style. If the style is not current we will not hang them on the rack. Thanks for understanding.
