Do you have an Item Limit for consignors?

There is a specific item limit for INFANT CLOTHING up to size 9 months and JUNIOR clothing. Because of the high quantity we receive of these items we will limit each consignor to 100 hanging INFANT CLOTHING items (newborn- 9month sizes) and 50 hanging JUNIOR CLOTHING. LIMITED INFANT SIZES INCLUDE: newborn, 0-3mo, 0-6mo, 3mo, 3-6mo, 3-9mo, 6mo, 6-9mo, 6-12mo, 9mo, 9-12mo. There is not a limit to the number of TOTAL items that a consignor can enter, however, we encourage you to bring your best items so that you sell a high percentage of your things. A consignor who brings 75 great items will do better than a consignor who brings 100 items that are poor quality and priced too high.

We strongly suggest that you NOT bring your children to the Pre-Sale. Just bring a tape measure and their measurements and enjoy a mom's dayout!

How should I price my items?

We suggest you set the price at 30% of the retail value. Baby Equipment, Furniture and Large Indoor/Outdoor Toys usually sell for more and are in high demand. We have an abundance of 0-6 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. You can use our Pricing Points Guide.
