General Guidelines for a Consigner
What to consign: We accept children’s clothing, outerwear, party dresses, and shoes as well as baby gear, all in great condition and current styles--think, would I buy that for my kids in a children's boutique? Our girls and boys clothing range from size 3 months through 12/14. Boutique and designer brands only. We purchase clothing items and consign baby gear such as Bundle Me's, baby carriers, and high-end strollers that are clean and in good condition.

When to consign: We consign baby gear year-round, regardless of season. We purchase Fall/Winter clothing items August - November and Spring/Summer items March - June. During seasonal consignment times fill out the consignment request form to schedule your pickup/meet up.
How does it work? After you submit a consignment request form, we will email you with a date and time for your pick up.
Clothing: We pick up the items from you, determine which items we are interested in purchasing, and email you an offer for the items. If you accept the offer we will send you a check for the amount and either donate or return the unwanted items based on what you chose. If you do not accept the offer we will either donate or return all of your items. For new consigners, we require a minimum of 10 items to open a new account with us.
It can take up to two weeks from the time we pick up your item until we send you an offer.
Gear: Print and sign our consigner agreement and leave it for us with the items you wish to consign and we will pick it up. Each item we accept for consignment will be given a bar code associated with your account and an e-mail will be sent to you with the list of each item and its initial selling price. Any items we do not accept we will return to you, or if you prefer we can donate them to a local charity. When your item sells, you are credited with 30% of the final sale price of the item. For larger gear that is priced $100 or more you will be credited with 50% of the final sale price. You can call anytime to check on the status of your items. Checks will be mailed upon your request with a limit of one check per month. If your item does not sell by the end of the season we may donate it to charity, unsold items will not be returned to you unless they are valued at over $100.
Preparing your items for consignment: Check your clothing for stains, pulls, and tears. We only accept items in like-new condition without visible wear and tear. For the sake of our customers, we are selective about the condition of the items as well as the brands. Bring items only for the current season, and only boutique or designer brands. Make sure all items are freshly laundered (we prefer a non-scented detergent), folded or on hangers, and placed nicely in a shopping bag or plastic bin. We will not accept items in plastic bags or garbage bags.
If you are unsure please feel free to email a photo of your item and we will let you know if it is something we are currently accepting.
Pricing: All prices are set by us and it is at our discretion to discount the items as we see fit. We typically sell items at 55%-60% off of retail pricing.
Disclaimer: We assume no responsibility for any loss due to fire, theft, or damage.
