Seller Preparation

  • Inspect ALL ITEMS prior to entering them in the system. Clothing should be free of stains, holes, piling, odors, and shrinkage. All items must be clean, non-damaged, and in working order. You are responsible for providing the item as described once the data entry period is closed. No cross posting.
  • Determine where you will take the photos. Create an area with a clean, simple background and excellent lighting. Avoid shadows.
  • Organize your items by category. This will speed up item entry process (optional). A full category listing with subcategories is available on the Virtual Seller Facebook Page.
  • Brand/Description line. List the Brand first, then all other critical information on the first line. If no brand, start with item description. Add dimensions of items such as artwork, and place ruler in the image.
What is KidStuff Virtual Sale?

KidStuff Virtual Sales are consignment sales that take place online – selling and shopping from the comfort of your home.  Sellers enter items along with a photograph – and KidStuff Sale takes it from there!  Shoppers purchase from our online storefront and pickup purchases curbside.  We offer families the ability to buy quality items at a discounted rate and the chance to earn extra income!

How do I become a virtual sale seller?

Click here to register.  There is a $10 registration fee to access the online item entry system.  Sellers choose a check-in time to drop off SOLD items after the online sale.  Sellers earn 67%-75% by helping with the sale.  PayPal deposits are sent directly to sellers 10-14 days from shopper pickup. Super easy and FUN!

Why can participating in the KidStuff Virtual Sale better than online seller directly?

We do most of the work for you! You just enter your items online and bring only the items that sell to the venue location. We handle all of the marketing and advertising, and collecting payment.  No meet ups, no pesky negotiations, no porch pick ups and no shows.  You benefit from our existing customer base of eager shoppers. Our shoppers are looking for quality used items and are willing to pay a reasonable amount for them.

What does the registration fee cover?
The registration fee helps offset the costs associated with space rental and event marketing. We publicize our sale through direct mail distribution, web campaigns, email blasts, sponsorships, advertising and public relations. Your registration fee goes towards these efforts.

 We insist on accepting only high-quality items in excellent condition.

How do I price my items?
Price your items to sell. If you value the item at $5.00, price it at $3.50 or $4.00 to ensure it sells before half-price day. Our most successful consignors price to sell and always discount on half-price day.

A good rule of thumb is to price at 25 – 35% of retail value, depending on the brand and condition of the item. Baby equipment, furniture, and large indoor and outdoor toys sell very well and are in high demand. On the other hand, we typically have an abundance of 0 – 6 mo. sizes, so these must be priced competitively in order to sell.

What is Discount Day?

The last day of each KidStuff event is a 50% discount day. Some events will also have a 25% discount period before the items switch to 50% discount. We do this to increase the sales of remaining items on the last day of the event, meaning fewer items and more money for you to take home! We do give you the option to not discount your items. Simply select No Discount when you create your tag, and your item will remain full price even on our discount day(s).Use No Discount tags sparingly. We recommend only using No Discount when the item is priced competitively and/or is in high demand (in which case it would be sold at full price earlier in the sale).  Most of our Sellers would rather take less profit than none at all.

How do I secure small pieces to toys or equipment?
Place them in a Ziploc bag and seal the bag with clear packing tape. This is important! Secure the bag to large items with masking tape, string, or ribbon.
