Summary of Item Limits and Seasonally Appropriate
Due to spacing and rack issues, there is an overall limit of 600 items per consignor each sale. In addition, individual “category” limits also apply:
- STRICT LIMIT OF 25 ITEMS (IN EACH GENDER) IN INFANT CLOTHING 0-12 MONTHS. (No limits on 12 months & up. Onesies do not count toward item limit; however, bag them, don’t hang them! Infant coats do not count toward the limit.)

- LIMIT OF 500 BOOKS PER CONSIGNOR. To maximize your items in this category, consider BAGGING BOOKS BY THEME or AUTHOR: 2-3 books per bag work well, and will only count as one “item.” (So in theory you could sell 1500 books if you placed three to a bag.) Be sure to provide a complete description on the tag for all books (ie: Two Magic Tree House #11 & #12, etc.)
