HANGERS – in order to protect your clothing items we only accept plastic hangers. Find plastic hangers at Wal-Mart, Target, Dollar Stores. Retail plastic hangers are acceptable too.
STRING TAGS – Avery White Marking Tags Strung (size 1.75 x 1.093 inches) are required on each item to affix our barcode labels to. You can find these at Wal-Mart, office supply stores, Rhea Lana Store (link) or large quantities may be purchased from Amazon.
You’ll also need re-sealable bags (for shoes, small toys, etc…), masking tape, scotch tape, sharpie, and safety pins. For large quantities of quality safety pins we recommend ordering from Cleaners Supply .
If you would like to print your barcodes at home you’ll need adhesive address labels size 1” X 2 5/8” (30 up). We recommend ordering from Amazon Here. Please note: all labels printed at home MUST be printed in color.
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.
Use children's 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/Winter Event we will only be receiving only Fall & Winter Children's, Junior's and Maternity clothing. We WILL NOT be taking flip flops, swim wear, and the like. We WILL accept winter boots, coats, and heavy sweaters. Be sure to group items together so that they will equal a value of at least $4.00. They may be pinned together on a hanger.
All pants must be clipped or pinned to a hanger, not folded over, as they tend to end up on the floor.
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 visible without unpinning them.
Please only bring your like-new shoes! 1) Put your consignor number and price on masking tape on the bottom of the shoes, this will help if they get separated. 2) Safety pin the price tag to a shoe lace or through the shoe eyelet. Put the shoes and price tag inside ziploc bag or ziptie the shoes together.
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. Safety pin tag to ziploc bag.
Bottles, bibs, rattles, socks, bows, etc group together appropriately in ziploc bags. Seal with clear packing tape. Pin tag to ziploc bag. It also helps to write your consignor number and info on the Ziploc with a Sharpie in case the tag comes off during the sale. (We do NOT accept used nipples on bottles or as a lot.)
Must be clean and in working order (batteries included.) Small parts must be bagged and attached to the main part very securely. If parts get separated it will not sell. 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 Sharpie 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 Beanie Baby, Disney or other name brand 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!

You may check the following website for current recalls: www.carseat.org/Recalls/179NP.pdf All seat covers and straps must be thoroughly cleaned. You will be asked to sign a car seat waiver stating your car seat has all the pieces and is in excellent condition and not more than five years old. Car seats will be closely inspected for safety reasons.
The local "consignment" store is really more of a discount store. You take your clothes in to them, they pick and choose your top items and offer you a SMALL fraction of what they will turn around and price it.
With us, we will accept all in season items that are current style and in great condition. We are true consignment. You price your items, and you pick up your items that didn't sell. We do not insult you with an offer to purchase only your top items and then turn you away with most items to return home. I urge you to try us before you decide to go with them.
