KidStuff FAQ’s

Shopping FAQ’s

How often do you have sales?
We usually have three sales in the Fall and three sales in the Spring, held at different venues in Louisville, Oldham County, and Southern Indiana. Check our website and Facebook page periodically to stay up to date on event information and updates.
Do I have to pay admission to enter the sale?
There is no fee to shop our sale. When it’s open to the public, anyone is welcome to shop the sale.
What will I find at the sale?
Each season offers different items and brands depending on what our consignors choose to sell. We always have clothing, shoes, and accessories for children (sizes preemie thru 12), as well as maternity clothing and accessories. We also have toys for all ages, bedding, nursery furniture, strollers, swings, bouncy seats, car seats, infant items, outdoor toys, books, puzzles, games, DVDs, and much more.
How can I shop early for best selection?

All sellers shop before the public. This is one of the many perks of selling with us. If you are a seller who is able to join our team, you shop even earlier.

I’m expecting, can I shop early?
If you are an expecting mom or new mom or grandmother (with a baby 12 mo. or younger), you can sign up for our New Parent Presale. There are a limited number of spots per event, so be sure to sign up early! Sign up for each sale location if you’d like to attend multiple events.
Can I bring a stroller?
Yes, you may bring a single-wide stroller. The size of the venue will determine the width of the shopping aisles.
Will you have shopping carts?
No. You may also bring a laundry basket, wagon, or bag to carry all of your items. We also offer huge IKEA shopping bags for your use. Once full, you can place them in our HOLD area for hands-free shopping. Unclaimed items are returned to the floor after two hours.
Can I try items on?
No. We do not offer dressing rooms at our locations for security reasons.
What is your return policy?
All sales are final. We offer an Inspection/Check Item Table, prior to entering the register area, where items can be opened and fully inspected for satisfactory condition. If you are uncertain, we suggest you do not purchase the item.
Can I bring my kids?
Sure! We ask that you keep them within arm’s reach at all times to protect their safety, as well as the safety of our Sellers’ items.

Selling FAQ’s

What is KidStuff Sale?
KidStuff Sales are consignment events designed specifically with families in mind. We provide quality clothes, toys, furniture, equipment, and accessories at discounted rates. We have everything you need for your kids! We offer families the ability to buy quality items at a discounted rate and the chance to earn extra income!
When is the next sale?
Visit our website for information regarding our upcoming sale location and dates.
How do I become a seller?
Click here to learn more about consigning. We provide detailed, step-by-step directions to help you navigate the tagging software, item preparation and pricing, and drop-off. It’s easy!
Why is participating in the KidStuff Sale better than having a garage sale?
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.
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.
Do you accept MySaleManager tags or barcode tags that are used at other sales?
No, we cannot, however, we do offer a power tagging option for easy re tagging of items from other consignment sales.
When do I get paid?

We typically pay our sellers within approx. 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.

What items are accepted?
Please visit our What to Sell page for more details.
Should I iron my clothes?
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!
Where can I find wire hangers?

Wire hangers are required for our fall/winter event. 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.

Are there items that you don’t accept?
We do not accept:

  • Bedding
  • Juniors clothing (or anything above a children’s size 14)*; exceptions must be approved in advance by texting 502-262-1248
  • Clothing with stains, tears, or holes
  • Toys or equipment with missing or defective pieces
  • Toys without batteries or toys that don’t work (We test all toys at drop-off.)
  • Damaged or defective items will be removed from the sale.
  • Items that were free to you that many people receive, such as hospital gift bags or samples.
  • Room decor
  • 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.

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. 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.

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.
When I price items in a Ziploc bag, how do I attach the price tag?
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.
When do I Check-In my items?
Designated Check-In days are listed on the seller timeline page.
When do I pick up my items that don’t sell?
Designated pick-up days/hours 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.
What happens to my items if I don’t pick them up?
Unsold items that are not claimed at pick-up will be donated to charity.
What types of payments are acceptable to purchase items?
We accept cash, MasterCard, and Visa. We accept checks only from our sellers.
