We have a total item limit of 150 items per consignor ID for our events in West Chicagoland. As always, 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 lesser quality and marked too high.
Option 1 - Let us print them for you free of charge. You'll pick them up and label your items at the store on one of the Drop Off Days. This is the most popular. You must bring in your printed inventory sheet(s) with your items or you can print them on site for $1. Option 2 - Let us print them for you free of charge. You'll pick them up early during our first few drop off days and label your items at home. Then bring your already labeled items on Drop Off Days. Be sure to bring your inventory sheet(s) with you or we can print them here for you for $1. IF you present all your items IN ORDER along with your inventory sheet, they will be guaranteed after we verify all your items are in the store. Option 3 - Print your barcode labels at home using a COLOR PRINTER. Follow the directions CAREFULLY that appear after you enter your items. Label your items at home. Bring your labeled items on Drop Off Days. Be sure to bring your inventory sheet(s) with you or we can print them here for you for $1. IF you present all your items IN ORDER along with your inventory sheet(s), they will be guaranteed after we verify all your items are in the store.
We are allowing volunteers and consignors to bring either their spouse or parent with them to help them shop, not a sister or best friend. You may give your guest pass to your sister or friend & meet them at the Guest Sale later in the evening. Our volunteers and consignors have worked hard to earn this special shopping privilege and we want to honor them. We will be checking!
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 night out!
We suggest you set the price at 25%-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.
Yes, but you will need to enter your items online in separate batches - one for each sale. Be VERY sure you enter your items for the correct sale.
Use children's plastic hangers for sizes 8 and below. Use larger plastic hangers for sizes 10 and above. No wire hangers, please! We've NEVER seen an item of clothing that would stay on a wire hanger!
Place them in a ziploc bag and then seal the ziploc with clear packing tape. Then tape the bag to the main toy, or use zip ties. Label each bag or piece with your consignor code and the price.This is important!
First, be sure to affix the barcode label to the string tag; do not stick it directly onto the item or the bag. Then attach the string tag to the item and tag inside the bag. Make sure the tag is visible.
We suggest you bring a laundry basket, large tote or shopping bag. All large bags will need to be checked at the door. Additionally, we have a small number of shopping carts!
If it meets our "excellence quality" standards, then group it together with one or two more like items. Pin them together on a hanger, or group them in a ziploc bag and put one price for the entire group.
Wrinkled clothes do not sell! Please do what is necessary to make your clothes look clean and nice. Remember, the better they look, the more likely they are to sell!
Due to recall regulations by the Consumer Product Safety Commission, we will not be accepting ANY drop side cribs.
We accept children's furniture items such as cribs (no drop side cribs please), changing tables, children's beds, dressers and more. Most of the furniture displayed in the Furniture Nook is sold in the first two days of the sale! You may also consign household furniture if preapproved by Christine at email@example.com.
We have lots of sponsorship opportunities at affordable prices for those of you who want to reach your target market - moms with families. Contact Christine at firstname.lastname@example.org for complete information.
