Clothing

We sell children's clothing Newborn through size 20.

Be selective. Shoppers want current and clean items.

Be in season.  Our Spring Sale is for Spring & Summer clothing only. Our Fall sale is for Fall & Winter clothing only (what your child would wear between October-March).

Be Clean. No stained clothes. Look at your clothing items as if you were going to purchase them. No stained or damaged items will be accepted.  Please freshly clean your clothing items.

Damaged Goods don't sell. Replace missing buttons, sew loose hems and seams, and clip loose threads. Please button all buttons, snap all snaps, zip all zippers before you arrive at drop off. This will ensure that there are no defects in the clothing.

Package & Hang:  Hangers - Please hang clothes so the hanger hook points to the left (like a question mark). Securely attach a tag!

Clothing that falls off the hanger onto the floor does not sell well. Video: How to Hang Clothes

Clothing Sets - Sets tend to sell better (under size 6) so match things up if you can.

Price Appropriately.  See Pricing Guide for suggestions.

  • Hanging Clothing - Put outfits/set together to price for at least $3.00.

Tagging

  • Clothing- Attach tag with a tagging gun or safety pin to the label of shirt or upper right front of pants. Insert the gun in a label or inside seam NOT through part of the clothing (to avoid making a hole or tear in the clothing).
  • Non-Hanging Clothing - Please put these items into clear zip-lock bags (onesies, socks, tights, infant mittens, and accessories). Print and securely tape (clear movers tape) the tag to the bag.

Toys

Batteries are a must. Please test to make sure that toys and equipment are working properly. Battery operated toys must include working batteries (these can be purchased inexpensively at local discount stores).

How to Package (single and multiple pieces):  Keeping tags and multiple items attached is essential for your items to sell. Bag all small parts belonging to toys/equipment in self-seal bags and tape the bag shut with clear packing tape. Fasten the bag securely to the item with ribbon, tape, or zip ties. Items must include ALL working parts. Video: How to tag a toy with multiple items

However, if shoes are in the box, please remove the lid, secure it to the bottom of the box, and secure the shoes to the box (closed boxes do not sell well).

How to Price Shoes:  Shoes must be in good condition and should start at $3.00 for infant/toddler; Add $1 each for larger size, name brand, or heavy/winter.
