Item Limits

There is a maximum of 400 items allowed per consignor. If you feel like you have more than 400 quality items to sell, and you have consigned with us before, please email us! We will only allow more than 400 items per consignor if they have quality items, that are priced right and they sell! We will review your past sale history to determine if your sell-through rates and inventory details warrant that limit to be raised. Our top priority is having quality items that will sell! If you are not volunteering, you may be asked to pay an additional $15 registration fee for another 400 items. Individual item category limits per consignor (15 shoes, 30 books, 50 items of infant clothing), will still apply because those limits are in place for space saving reasons.

  • Clothing – Infant clothing sized 0-12 months is limited to 50 tagged items for each gender. All other children’s sizes are unlimited from size 12-18 months to big kid 18-20.
  • Shoes – 15 of your best pairs, regardless of size or gender. 15 pairs total per consignor. Season appropriate, no excessive wearing, scuffs, and dirt-free.
  • Books – we ask that you bring your 30 best books (30 tagged items).

That’s it! You may bring as many items from the other categories as you would like! Toys sell especially well, so please take the time to clear out your toy bins and play rooms!

What NOT to Bring

  • Clothing that is out-dated, out of season, stained, torn, faded, has missing buttons, or broken zippers
  • Items that smell like cigarette smoke or smell musty from storage. Note: Consider washing your items in Purex Crystals.
  • Any recalled item; consignors are responsible for ensuring that their items have not been subject to a product recall. Please check the CPSC database to make sure your items do not have recalls.
  • Cribs, due to recent safety concerns, recalls, and changing standards.
  • Infant bathtubs – new federal safety standards prohibit us from selling bathtubs manufactured before October 2nd, 2017.
  • Maternity clothes – due to a lack of interest and very low sales, we will not be accepting maternity clothes at this time.
  • Ring-sling style infant carriers, due to recent safety concerns and recalls.
  • Crib bedding sets. Crib sheets, blankets, mattress covers, are OK! But no bumpers or crib comforter/quilts are accepted.
  • Adult clothing – must have a numbered youth size up to youth 18/20.
  • Bottles, sippy cups, plates, utensils, teething toys, pacifiers or nipples. Anything that food comes in contact with is not accepted. New in original packaging is OK.
  • Stuffed animals, unless they “do” something, and no Build-a-Bear
  • Underwear, unless new in original packaging
  • Potty seats/chairs, unless new in original packaging
  • Diaper pails
  • Battery operated items without working batteries
  • Kids meal toys, or items that were free, including Imagination Library Books
  • Random “grab bags” with miscellaneous items
  • Single-user breast pumps – you must research this; there are very few multi-user breast pumps.
  • VHS tapes or cassettes
  • Adult books, Rated R movies, or adult video games
  • Household items – no home decor, porcelain dolls, fragile items, baskets, pillows, etc.
  • Items with missing parts or broken pieces

Please do not be offended if we return some items to you during your drop-off time. The lighting of the facility often shows spots that were not apparent in your home. We are striving to maintain a high quality of merchandise so that our customers will be happy and will return to shop other sales!

Notes on Seasonal Clothing

We DO NOT have hard and fast rules on acceptable clothing beyond what we have listed above. That means items like vests, skirts, sweaters, etc. are accepted year round, when seasonally appropriate. We ask that for our spring sales, clothing be of spring prints/colors and lighter in weight. In the fall, clothing should be fall prints/colors and heavier weight. It is Oregon after all, and our seasons do blend together; use our guidelines and your best judgment when entering items for sale.

How to Tag Your Items

Clothing

  • Sizes Preemie – 18/20 accepted
  • Check clothing carefully for stains, excessive wear or pilling, broken zippers, and missing buttons. Don’t waste your time preparing items that will be returned to you at drop-off or pulled from the racks later.
  • Price competitively! Our racks are full and overpriced items don’t sell. Consider marking your items to go to discount. Who wants to take home outgrown clothes instead of more money?
  • Minimum price is $1.00 and you can only price in whole dollar increments.
  • All clothing must be on hangers. Clothing should be hung with the hook facing the LEFT – like a question mark.
  • When hanging pants on a regular hanger, pin the pants to the TOP rung of the hanger.
  • Two-piece sets should be secured with safety pins. Pants, skirts, and bottoms can be hung on the backside with two safety pins attaching them to the top part of the hanger.
  • Make sure that all buttons, snaps, and zippers are fastened.
  • Use a safety pin or tagging gun to attach the tag in the seam or in the original tag to avoid damaging the clothing. Use the inside seam at the end of the left sleeve (right side when looking at the item). Do not pin to the front of the garment.
  • Please use the entire description field when entering your items. Be very detailed and descriptive! Use words like slim, husky, runs small, or runs big when applicable.
  • Sleep sacks, swaddle blankets, wearable blankets, etc., these need hung on hangers.

Shoes

Must be clean and show little wear. Limit of 15 pairs regardless of gender. Please do not put shoes in plastic bags or shoeboxes. Punch a hole in the tag and then attach with ribbon or zipties while securing shoes together. MUST BE CLEAN! 

Blankets

Blankets should be on hangers, but do not pin them on. Just fold across the bottom bar of the hanger. Smaller receiving blankets do not need hung; they may be folded or rolled, then secured with string or rubber bands. Sleep sacks and swaddle blankets need hung on hangers.

Toys

Must have working batteries, all pieces must be included, and loose pieces should be in zip-lock bags and attached to the item. Clean toys always sell better! No stuffed animals or recalled items. Do not use scotch tape; only clear packing tape on plastic toys or secure tags with zip ties. Don’t be stingy with tape either! If your toy comes with small pieces, put them in a zip-lock bag and secure them as if you were shopping in a storm! (This is comparable to all the children that are looking at items while shopping.)

Puzzles & Games

Count ALL pieces before tagging. ALL pieces must be included in order to be sold. Please use plastic saran wrap to cover all puzzles not in boxes (wood puzzles, peg puzzles, etc.), then secure with tape. DO NOT put tape directly on puzzles, even blue tape! If you try to sell something with missing pieces, you will be assessed a $5 fee per item.

Large Toys & Outdoor Equipment

These are best-sellers! Must be clean! Wipe them down to get rid of dirt and crumbs. This includes play kitchens, play houses, wagons, bicycles, toy boxes, doll houses, tool benches, etc.

Infant Carriers

Ergos, Wraps, Baby Bjorn, etc. These need to be clean and checked for recalls. Zip-tie to a hanger.

Books

There is a limit of 30 tagged items for books. If selling bundles of books, secure them together with 2 rubber bands or tie with string! Do not try to hide damaged books in the middle of bundles and do not use clear tape on books. (Items found to have flaws, that were hidden in bundles, etc. will be accessed a $5.00 per item fee)

Tagging Supplies

  • Hangers! Any type; wire or plastic.
  • WHITE cardstock; regular printer paper is NOT allowed.
  • Scissors or paper cutter
  • Tagging gun (only if used correctly)
  • Blue painters tape
  • Clear packing tape
  • Zip-lock bags of all sizes
  • Zip ties, string
  • Batteries

Safety Pins

We have high quality safety pins available for our consignors! These safety pins slide like “buddah” through your clothes. Much better than the dollar store pins that bend and break, and these won’t leave holes! They are 1.5 inch pins and are in bags of 100 for $1.00! Amazing deal for high quality safety pins! Pick-up information will be given on the Consignor Only Facebook Group! If you would like them shipped, order and pay here with PayPal!

100 pins for $1.00
+ add $4.00 shipping for 1-3 bags
+ add $5.00 shipping for 4-5 bags

How many bags?

General Tagging Tips

Use very detailed descriptions on your tags. If an item gets separated from its tag, we can look it up in our system, but only if the description on the tag gives us enough information to match it up to the item. A tag that just says “toy” or “pants” will never get matched back up to its item, which means we won’t be able to sell it. Be very descriptive on your tags, ie: “Blue Sweater” should be “Baby Gap Light Blue Sweater with dog”.

Once you have printed your tags, do NOT change ANYTHING in the tagging program or on the actual tags such as price, description, size, discount, etc. The bar code will only give the info that was input into the computer at the time it was printed. If you need to make a change, you must correct it in your online inventory AND print out a new tag and attach to the item.

Make sure your bar codes are not smudged or fuzzy. The scanners will not read them. If using an inkjet printer, set it on the draft or low ink setting. If your bar codes come out fuzzy or too bold, they will not scan. Print on white cardstock only!

Multiple items should be noted in your description, so if something comes loose we can find the missing piece. You can attach a separate 3x5 card with additional item details for items that you’d like to let the shopper know a little bit more about!

If you have a multiple piece large item (ie: stroller, car-seat, base), you will hand-write Item 1 of 3 on the bar coded tag, then hand-write a second tag that says Item 2 of 3 and 3 of 3 to attach to the other 2 items that go with it. Also include your consignor number, item number, and description on the 2nd and 3rd tags.
