Clothing

The better they look, the better they sell! Please take time to wash and iron your clothes if necessary. Please check for stains, broken zippers, torn hemlines, etc. We will be double checking at the store and will not receive any item that is not in excellent condition. Use children's plastic hangers for sizes 10 and below. Use larger plastic hangers for sizes 12 and above. You may also use wire coated hangers as long as they are size appropriate. NO METAL HANGERS, PLEASE! Plastic and wire-coated hangers can be purchased at discount stores. This makes shopping more pleasant for everyone!

Blankets

Hang and pin blankets over hangers so that shoppers can see them. If they are small receiving blankets, group 2 or 3 together on a hanger and pin them together. Safety pin the tag to the blankets.

Loose Items

Items sell better when they are on a hanger rather than in a bag. Items such as bibs, burp cloths, cloth diapers and onesies should be placed on a hanger and secured with a safety pin. Also use a safety pin to attach the string tag to the item.

Bottles, rattles, socks, bows, etc group together appropriately in ziploc bags. Attach the string tag to the inside of the bag using a small piece of tape on the top part of the string tag.

Please do not tape your bags closed until after they have gone through consignor check in. It also helps to write your consignor number and info on the plastic bag with a permanent marker in case the tag comes off during the sale.

We will not accept used nipples or pacifiers - only new, in the package of these items.

Must be clean and in working order (batteries included.) Small parts must be bagged and attached to the main part very securely. If parts get separated, the item will not sell. Games should be taped closed. Books and DVD's do not need to be put in ziplock bags. If are you grouping them you can use plastic wrap, tape or place them in a ziplock bag. Attach the string tag to the inside of the bag using a small piece of tape at the top of the string tag. It is also good to write your consignor number and info on the ziploc bag with a Sharpie in case the tag comes off. DVD's and video games should not be taped shut until after they have been through consignor check in. Puzzles should be wrapped securely in clear Saran wrap to keep the pieces intact. All toys and games MUST include ALL pieces. TOYS NOT PACKAGED APPROPRIATELY WILL BE TURNED AWAY.

Large Little Tikes Toys and Furniture are in high demand! When tagging large toys it is best to also attach a piece of masking tape to the toy with your consignor information. This will enable us to sell your toy even if the tag comes off! We sell 95% of Toys, Furniture and Baby Equipment!
