To Participate or Not — that is the question!
Consignors must have a minimum of 25 items worth at least $100 in order to sell and may sell a maximum of 400 items.
If you only have a few items, consider whether your potential sales are enough to make the cost of registration, effort, time, and participation worthwhile to you. Seller spots are limited. The $15 registration fee is non-refundable and non-transferrable.
Consignors retain at least 65% of what their items sell for, with opportunities to retain up to 80%.

Step 3: Preparing Your Items
Collect Inventory – for DIY and Valet Consignors
- Collect eligible items
- Inspect & Clean all of your items to make sure they are in working order, and free from stains and flaws.
Price, Hang, & Tag – for DIY and Valet Taggers on behalf of Valet Consignors
- Log in to your consignor account and enter your items into our online inventory and tagging system.
- Pricing: Minimum price is $2.00 and you can only price in whole dollar increments.
- Description Field: Be very detailed and descriptive! Use words like slim, husky, runs small, or runs big and include brand, color, pattern, etc.
- Size Field: Clothing tags must contain a NUMBER size in the tag’s size field.
- Convert letter sizes (e.g., XS, S, M, etc.) to their number equivalents. (Exception: Junior Clothing Sizes uses only XS, S, M, L, XL)
- Enter the smaller number for clothing containing multiple sizes into the tag’s size field. Example: 6/7 is entered as 6, for 10/12, enter 10.
- Hang: all clothing and blankets on hangers! The hook of the hanger should be facing left — like a question mark!
- Print Tags: Print on white cardstock and attach securely to items via safety pins or tape (or, if used properly, optional tagging gun). Loosely attach tags to large items as they will be attached to a Large Ticket Tag so shoppers claim the item and continue shopping. See the Supplies and Tagging Tips information HERE
Step 4: Drop-Off
- Sign Up: Select a drop-off appointment time from your consignor account homepage. You may change your appointment time any time before the Inventory Entry Deadline (9:00pm on Saturday).
- Appointment: Drop-offs are scheduled every 15 minutes—arrive on time.
Unorganized and/or late arrivals affect others and can cause significant delays. So, BEFORE arriving, be sure to organize clothing by size and gender and group all other items by category. If not, you must stay and sort your items before you leave.
- Unload vehicle and place items in designated areas.
- Set up any large items (i.e. pack n play, swing, beds).
- Leave with your empty totes/containers.
- Crew Inspection and Acceptance
- Items will be inspected for eligibility, proper tags, etc.; don’t be offended if not all items are accepted, we have high standards.
- Any unaccepted item(s) will be available for pick up during the unsold item pickup period at the end of the sale, unless they were marked for donation.
Step 5: Shop
Consignors shop before the public! See shopping times at the top of this page. We ask that no children attend Presale events; however, infants under 12 months are allowed.
- One (1) to shop on Wednesday
- Up to five (5) guest passes to shop on Thursday

Step 6: End of Sale
Unsold Item Pick Up . . . . . Sunday 5:00 pm – 6:00 pm
Items will be arranged in piles by consignor number:
- Notify itty bitty boutique if someone else is picking up your items for you.
- Double check every item in your pile to ensure they belong to you.
- Check the “Lost and Found” area for items that lost their tags.
If you do not wish to pick up unsold items at the end of the event, check the DONATE box when creating your price tags. This is a requirement if you are not planning to pick up. If your tags are not marked for donation, you are required to come pick up your unsold items, as the Crew spent their time and energy sorting your items.
All items left in the building after 6:00pm on Sunday evening will be donated along with all other designated items to local charities. NO EXCEPTIONS.
