How to Consign

We accept previously-owned designer children's clothes by season. We begin accepting spring/summer items on January 1 and fall/winter items on July 1.

Sort items by season before bringing them to us. January through June, we accept spring and summer items, including swimsuits in like-new condition. July through December, we accept fall and winter items, including holiday outfits and winter gear (hats, coats, mittens, snow boots). We will not accept and sell off-season clothes.

We accept items by walk-in donation or by appointment. You may drop off your items during our regular business hours. Please DO NOT leave any items outside the shop when we are closed.

Inspect your items carefully before you bring them to us. We accept kids' clothes and shoes up to size 12 in excellent condition. We also accept diaper bags in excellent condition.

Bring your items neatly folded in no more than two bags, boxes, or laundry baskets. We do not accept anything on hangers or in trash bags.

We price each item by hand based on style, brand, and condition. You can choose to receive 20% of the item’s price in cash or 50% in store credit after it sells. We reserve the right to reduce the price of an item at any time if it is damaged or out of season. Anything that hasn’t sold in 60 days will be donated to a community organization.

Donating leftovers  

We donate items we do not or cannot sell to local community organizations, including Cornerstone Community Outreach, Heartland Alliance, World Relief, the Epilepsy Foundation, and the Red Cross (depending on need & current events).  At the end of the year, you may request a list of donated items for tax purposes.

Quick tips for successful consignment (a checklist): 

  • You may bring a maximum 2 bags or 2 boxes at a time
  • All items must be in like-new or gently used condition
  • Each piece must be freshly washed and dried (we will know if it’s not!)
  • All items should be clean (no stains, pilling, fading, or holes) and current (no less than 2 years old)
  • Keep sets together
  • Shoes should be clean and free of dirt and debris
  • We do not accept any vintage or handmade items
