We are allowing consignors to bring any guest with them (your child DOES count as your 1 guest). You also have the option to purchase an earlier shopping ticket. However, your consignor pass is FREE. Our consignors have worked hard to earn this special shopping privilege and we are happy to offer this perk.
We love children (we are moms, too), but Pre-Sale is such a busy shopping night leaving little space to maneuver strollers with babies. We recommend that you do not bring your children to the Pre-Sale. We recommend you bring a tape measure and their measurements and enjoy a mom's or parent night out. Children are welcome to attend on one of the Public shopping days. Note: If you do bring your child, they count as your one guest.
We suggest you set the price at 25-30 percent 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 items competitively, also.

Place them in a Ziploc bag and then seal the Ziploc with clear packing tape. This is important! IN permanent marker, include on the ziploc: consignor number, price, and item description. (If that bag becomes separated, we want to be able to match it back to the appropriate item & consignor!)
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 with your name on it. Large bags will need to be checked at the door.
If it meets our "excellent 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.
