NEW CONSIGNORS:  Please limit your items to one bin or IKEA bag of items. This is the best way to eliminate any misunderstandings about the type of merchandise we do and do not accept. 

FAQ’s

  • Compensation: Consignors receive ⅓ of each item’s selling price. For items that sell over $50, consignors receive ½ the selling price. We work hard to get your items sold and give them ample exposure.  We do diligent research to price items at a point that is both fair to the consignor and a great deal for our customers. 
  • Items We Accept: Note that all clothing items must be freshly laundered (floor display ready)  and free of damage, stains, excessive wear. All goods must have all parts and pieces and toys need to be in working order ( Fresh batteries).
  • Items We Cannot Accept: Incomplete sets, cloth diapers, socks, car seats, car seat bases, swings. 

What We Carry 

We carry gently used children’s clothes (up to size 12) , costumes, goods, gear,  toys, and select children’s sports items (think cleats, baseball mitts, shin guards in season).  

Additionally, quality is key. Quantity is not our goal. The quality of our items is extremely important to us. We want our customers to have an assurance that any purchase they make with us will be in both excellent condition as well as safe.
