General Guidelines for a Consigner
Drop offs: During seasonal consignment times, you can drop off your in-season items anytime during regular store hours. We consign baby gear year-round, regardless of season.

How does consignment work? Print and sign our consigner agreement and bring it to the store along with the items you would like to consign. 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 will be set aside for you to pick up, or if you prefer we can donate them to a local charity. It typically takes us two weeks from the time you bring in your items until they are tagged and placed in the store, during peak season it may take a little longer.
When your item sells, you are credited with 30% of the final sale price of the item. For larger gear such as strollers you will be credited with 50% of the final sale price. Store credit will be immediately assigned to your account. If you choose to use the store credit from your sold items, we'll give you an extra 10% off your purchase. If you prefer to be paid by check, checks will be mailed upon request when your consigner account has a minimum of $20, with a limit of one check per month. If your item does not sell by the end of the season we will donate it to charity, unsold items will not be returned to you.
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. We will not accept items in plastic bags or garbage bags. Please keep in mind we are a smaller store and always have to consider our current inventory and available space when accepting items.
If you are unsure or you want to save yourself a trip please feel free to call ahead or email us 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 the store and it is at our discretion to discount the items as we see fit. We typically sell our items at 55%-60% off of retail pricing.
Disclaimer: The store assumes no responsibility for any loss due to fire, theft, or damage.
