What is the difference between a consignment sale and a garage sale or resale shop? TOP

This sale is NOT a garage sale, yard sale, or thrift store. We carefully inspect every item that arrives at our sale to ensure that everything is clean without stains, meets current styles and is in working order.  All items are organized so that it is easy to shop and find the sizes and types of items you are looking for.  There will be no digging in boxes and no tables of messy clothing.  Clothing is all hung up and organized by size.  Toys are grouped with like items and furniture will be paired with their matching items.  Prices are set by each consignor and are firm.

How should I tag my items? TOP

We've gathered some easy tips to help you thru this process, please click here for more information on tagging.

How do I group multiple items to be sold in a set? TOP

Clothing items can be hung on separate hangers and then tied together, please note on item's tag description how many items are with the set. If you choose to use safety pins, PLEASE to not damage the item you are grouping together, safety pins as well as tagging gun barbs should be placed on the INSIDE clothing size tag or INSIDE SEAM. Please maintain the quality of your items by not placing holes on the outside of the clothing.

Toys can be bagged together, tied together, or taped together, again, as long as you do maintain the items quality and make sure as much of the paired items are visible.

How do I keep shoes together? TOP

Please tie shoes together with a piece of ribbon or zip tie.

How should I present my items? TOP

Small clothing ARE TO BE hung on child-sized plastic hangers, and larger clothing items should use classic plasttic or metal shirt/pant hangers.  You may use hangers your clothes came on from a store, or you may buy some.  Please make sure your items are presented appropriately. Do not fold pants over hangers. Items that are free of wrinkles sell better, consider ironing your higher valued items!

For toys, furniture, etc. please make sure every piece is together and CLEAN.  A little lysol and Magic Eraser go a long way. Please bring your items in compact form (if they fold together) and make sure the tag is visible in their smallest form.
