Please remember, we will inspect all items at drop off. Any items found to not meet high quality standards for quality and/or safety will be returned to you. We will also inspect items during the sale, and reserve the right to “pull” items, if necessary.

Acceptable Items

* ANY CLOTHING, SHOES*, JACKETS, or COATS for WOMEN

Any clothing at all is acceptable EXCEPT for undergarments or bathing suits (unless BRAND NEW WITH TAGS.) All seasons will be accepted (winter, spring, summer or fall clothing.) PLEASE REMEMBER THAT THIS IS A CONSIGNMENT EVENT; all clothing MUST be in EXCELLENT CONDITION and new within the last five years (no outdated or worn looking clothing, please!) Think stylish and gift-able/wearable.  

Special Note: Maternity clothing WILL be accepted in this category, limited to (20) items per consignor.

*Shoes will be tried on, so the least amount of packaging is suggested. Boxes are fine w/ a large zip lock but if it makes sense, do try to zip tie shoes or boots together. If you are bagging shoes and leaving them “loose,” be sure to label the bottom heel or bottom part of both shoes (masking tape) with item number, consignor number, and price. Also indicate discount/no discount.

 

* ACCESSORIES FOR WOMEN, including FOOTWEAR and BOOTS.

Accessories may include hats, mittens, scarves & earmuffs for women. Handbags, purses, wallets, belts and jewelry for women in EXCELLENT (unused or gently used) condition – as well as luggage – also accepted. Perfume sets will be accepted as long as they are NEW. Women’s shoes and boots must be in excellent condition.

Special Note: Please prepare your purses and jewelry in the same manner — FOR PURSES: attach purse handles to a hanger using a ZIP TIE (leave space enough to cut the zip tie off afterwards!) — FOR JEWELRY: bag jewelry items and then either PIN or ZIP TIE the bag to a hanger. Both jewelry and purses will be hung on racks during the sale.

 

* HEALTH/SPORTING GOODS.

Exercise equipment, yoga equipment, ski equipment, etc. Anything that women can use to maintain good health! Please: no vitamins, diet mixes, or consumables in this category.

 

* BOOKS, DVDs and CDs 

Books should be limited to Pregnancy/Parenting and/or Recreational books (ie: novels, books about crafting or hobbies, etc.) Please do not bring children’s books or educational/reference books (like dictionaries.) These types of books are more appropriate for our children’s consignment event. If you have books that you read and enjoyed, perhaps someone else will as well…! Please be sure all books are in EXCELLENT condition! DVDs will be accepted in a wide range of categories, however only up to “R” rating …no inappropriate or unrated DVDs will be accepted.

Special note: Books should not be bagged. You can use a light scotch tape and paper when you print the tags for books (vs. cardstock.) They will be placed on tables – spine up – during the sale.

 

* CRAFTS and HOBBIES

We are accepting a wide range of items in this category, however please remember that everything should be in EXCELLENT used condition, or new. Ideas in this category would include knitting needles, supplies and accessories (like yarn, notions, etc.), crochet accessories, pottery, scrap booking or craft supplies, etc. 

* HOUSEWARES and ROOM DECOR

NEW THIS SALE! We ARE accepting houseware/s and room decor items. Please keep in mind that this is a women’s consignment event, so high quality and/or giftable “types” of items are preferred. Some ideas in this category would include: glass ware or stemware, new or excellent-condition kitchen items, paintings or framed artwork, throw pillows, rugs, mirrors, etc.

Armoires

Bookshelves

Coffee Tables & End Tables

We will also inspect items during the sale, and reserve the right to “pull” items, if necessary.

 

We have a page that outlines our Tagging and Preparation guidelines for our seasonal children’s consignment sales. You should read this page to familiarize yourself with the tagging procedures, especially. 

In general, most of the same guidelines apply, with a few notable additions:

1) PURSES must be zip tied to a wire hanger. Zip ties (also known as “cable” ties”) are available at any hardware store, Walmart, Home Depot, etc. Place the handles around the top of the hanger and use a large zip tie to secure. Tags can also be zip tied to the hanger so as not to damage the purse.

2) Jewelry items should be BAGGED and zip tied or pinned to a hanger. All jewelry items will be HUNG this sale.

3) Shoe guidelines remain the same as for our children’s sale: DO NOT BAG SHOES. Please zip tie together and affix tag via a hole in the top of the tag — place masking tape on the bottom heel with consignor number, item number, and price. Shoes that are not able to be easily zip tied together can be bagged (one shoe per bag) and the bags can be zip tied.

4) DO NOT pin pants. Please fold them and place them over a hanger (pants hangers from the dry cleaner – the kind with the cardboard on the bottom – are preferred.)

5) DO NOT BAG BOOKS. Use paper for tags and clear, lightweight scotch tape to affix tags. Books will be displayed with the spine up on tables (not in bins) during the sale.

If you have any questions about getting your items ready for sale that are not covered here or on our Tagging and Prep page, please contact us.
