The following frequently is meant to guide you to a successful experience with Children's Clothing Exchange.
I am new to the sale, what do I do?
We have two sales each year – Fall and Spring, so gather your items that you wish to sell at the appropriate seasonal sale.
To become a consignor simply register through our consignment manager system here on the website (click the red registration button to access the system).
Through our online consignment manager system, our consignors will price and create tags for all of their items.
Tags are generated through the consignment manager system and should be printed on basic card stock.
Attach your barcoded tags to your items with a tagging gun or safety pins. (Tagging guns can be purchased for a minimal cost on Amazon). Tags should be attached through the garment tag or under the left arm sleeve. On items where safety pins or tagging fasteners cannot be used, items tags should be secured with clear packaging tape avoiding the barcode on the tag.
Drop off your items during any of our Drop Off times. Because of Covid 19 restrictions, we will not be able to offer onsite tagging or hanging of clothes.
Please bring your items fully prepared. We do have hangers if you need them.
Do I need an appointment or do I just drop off my items?
No, you do not need an appointment. Please come during our Drop Off hours for consignment drop off. Consignors may shop on Drop Off days.
Do we price our own items?
Starting with the 2018 Spring Sale, our consignors have had control of all item pricing including clothing. General pricing guidelines will be provided on our Consignor Information Page.
For pricing the following: Toys, games, baby equipment, bedding, costumes, hats, books or DVDs, we suggest that you ask about half of what you paid or simply try and think of what you would want to pay for the item if you came to our sale to buy it. Remember, the better an item looks, the better it sells, so clean up it and put in fresh batteries! NO ONE WILL BUY AN ITEM THAT DOESN’T WORK.
How much do we earn as a consignor?
Consignors make 50% of the selling price of each item sold. We do not charge any fees to participate in our sale.
When do we receive our checks?
Your checks will be available immediately following the sale and may be collected on pick up day.
Is there a certain number of items that I have to bring in?
There is no minimum number of items to consign but we ask that you limit your clothing items to 150 quality pieces.
You do not need to consign in order to shop at our consignment sale.
Are there any items that you don’t accept?
Yes. We do ask that you review our website for a list of items that we do not accept. We strongly suggest that you not bring in any “Gerber” type onesies or t-shirts. They just DO NOT SELL. If you can buy them 3 for $5 at the store brand new, they just don’t sell at a consignment sale. We suggest that you donate those items to charity.
When can I start buying?
Consignors are welcome to shop at any time during the sale including all Drop Off days.
Beginning with the first Public Sale Day, the sale will be open to the public for shopping. Because of Covid 19 restrictions no children except for those in baby carriers or strollers will be allowed.
