Here are some guidelines to help as you prepare your items for the sale. Click here to see what is acceptable and not acceptable for the sale.
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!
We are receiving only Fall, Winter & Back-to-School, Children's, Junior, and Maternity clothing for this sale.This includes khaki and denim shorts and some short sleeved shirts appropriate for back to school wear. No swimsuits, tanktops, sundresses, seersucker or Easter outfits.
Please group items together so that they will equal a value of at least $3.00. They may be pinned together on a hanger.
All pants must be 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 viewable without unpinning them.
Each item must be in current style and excellent condition.
Please only bring your like-new shoes! Shoes are difficult to tag. First, write your consignor number and price on masking tape to the bottom of each shoe. Then safety pin the price tag to a shoe lace or through the shoe eyelet. Put the shoes and price tag inside ziploc bag.
It is best to package a bedding set together in its original clear plastic bag with zipper. These can also be purchased at discount stores.
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 will not accept used nipples or pacifiers - only new, in the package of these items.

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.

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 percent of Toys, Furniture and Baby Equipment!
Toy recall information -- Due to the high number of toy recalls during the past year, we inspect toys very carefully. We reserve the right to pull any toy we think might have been recalled. To help us, please do not bring any toys that have been subject to a recall. Check this government website for current toy recalls. Also, this helpful checklist has been made available by the Consumer Product Safety Commission.
Your car seat must have been manufactured within the past five years. It must not be subject to recall or have been in an accident. Check here for current recalls.
