We do most of the work for you! You just prepare your items and bring them to the sale location. We handle all of the marketing and advertising, and you benefit from our existing customer base of eager shoppers. You just pick up your unsold items and your earnings. And, no pesky negotiations! Our shoppers are looking for quality used items and are willing to pay a reasonable amount for them.
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.
Yes. We cannot, however, offer online tracking of those items. Instead, we’ll provide a report at the end of the sale indicating which if your items sold.
We typically pay our sellers within 3-5 days of the close of the sale via PayPal. We also offer paper checks after unclaimed PayPal funds are returned by way of regular mailed to the address on file.
Please visit our What to Sell page for more details.
Sure! Wrinkled clothes don’t sell as well. Please do what is necessary to make your clothes look clean and nice. Remember, the better they look, the more likely they are to sell!
Wire hangers are not required but strongly preferred. Wire hangers can be found at Walmart stores and some Dollar Tree stores. You can also check at your local dry cleaner; if you do business with them, often times they will give you a handful. Occasionally, KidStuff Sale will place a bulk order for our registered sellers. Watch for an email regarding ordering hangers.
We do not accept:
- Juniors clothing (or anything above a children’s size 20)
- Clothing with stains, tears, or holes
- Toys or equipment with missing or defective pieces
- Toys that don’t work (We test all toys at drop-off.)
- Damaged or defective items will be removed from the sale.
- Stuffed animals, except:
- Battery- operating teaching toys
- Character toys, such as talking Elmo
- Holiday-themed toys in new condition
*All exceptions must be inspected and approved.
If you’re unsure about an item, consider whether or not you would give it to your child. No one wants to sort through – much less buy – damaged items for their children. We insist on accepting only high-quality items in excellent condition.
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.
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. They’d also rather not bring home boxes of unsold clothing and accessories. It’s our experience that many of the items remaining after discount day were over-priced. Items that are over-priced and marked No Discount almost always go back home with the seller.
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.
Attach the price tag securely and place both the item and tag inside the Ziploc bag. Make sure the price tag is visible for scanning at checkout.
Designated drop-off days are listed on the seller timeline page.
Designated pick-up days are listed on the seller timeline page. Or, you can choose to donate your items on the last day of the sale. In this case, you wouldn’t need to return to the event venue.
Unsold items that are not claimed at pick-up will be donated to charity.
We accept cash, MasterCard, and Visa. We accept checks only from our sellers.
