Bags & Baby Carriers

Diaper bags, infant carriers, backpacks, and purses are great consignment items. Please inspect all carefully to make sure items have not been recalled, stained, damaged or are missing pieces.  

Package Tip:  Please zip-tie items to an adult-size hanger.

Tagging Tip:  Hole-punch JBF tag and attach it to item with ribbon or string. If item contains multiple pieces, be sure all pieces are included and list number of items on JBF tag description.

 

Bedding, Blankets & Textiles

Bedding sizes accepted through twin only. Please be selective when selling bedding, blankets, receiving blankets, burp cloths, and towels. New and barely used items sell best. Check carefully for stains; shoppers get very disappointed if they find a stain in a bundled blanket once they get home.

NOTE:  We do NOT accept crib bumpers of any sort.

Package:  Put bedding/crib/bedroom sets together in original packaging or in giant clear plastic bags. It helps to take a picture of your bedding before packaging it!  This helps the shopper know what they are buying.  Secure the bag so that items do not get separated.  Bundle blankets, cloths, and towels with ribbon or string like a package (be sure multiple pieces cannot be separated).

Price:  Price to sell! Shoppers are less likely to purchase these items used, so prices have to be low.

Tag:  If bedding is in a plastic bag, attach tag securely with packaging tape to the inside of the bag and tape the bag shut.  If you took a picture of your bedding out of the package, make sure to tape it to the package so people know what it looks like outside of the bag.

Maternity Clothing

There is a limit of 10 maternity items per consignor. We accept the following brands:

• Old Navy/Gap
• H&M Maternity
• Motherhood Maternity
• Mimi
• Ann Taylor Loft/Ann Taylor
• A Pea in the Pod
• Nordstrom Maternity
• Pink Blush
• Boutique brands

Infant/Toddler - Clothing

Due to limited space, we are only accepting clothing, shoes & accessories that are fit for the sale:

Spring Sale - Spring/Summer Clothing

Fall Sale - Fall/Winter Clothing

Please see above for the current "What to Bring" list

Clothing is sized for infants/toddlers :Preemie,  0-3 months, 3 months, 6 months, 9 months, 12 months, 18 months, 24 months, 2T, etc.  - 

Be picky. Look at your clothing items as if you were going to purchase them. No stained or damage items will be accepted. Please freshly clean your clothing items. Replace missing buttons, sew loose hems and seams, and clip loose threads. Please button all buttons, snap all snaps, zip all zippers before you arrive at drop off. This will ensure that there are no defects in the clothing. The newer the item looks (and the better it smells), the better it will sell.

Package & Hang:  Hangers - Please hang clothes so the hanger hook points to the left (like a question mark).

 Hang size 0-6 clothing on child-size hangers and sizes 7-20 and maternity clothing on adult-size hangers.

Clothing that falls off the hanger onto the floor does not sell well. 

Clothing Sets - Sets tend to sell better (under size 6) so match things up if you can. All garments should be hung with the hanger hook pointing left (hanger should resemble a question mark when looking at the front of item). Safety pin or use a tagging gun to attach clothing sets securely with bottom garment hung on the backside of the shirt, so both pieces can be viewed without separating them. 

Pants/Shorts- Pant-clip hangers are great but if you use a standard hanger, simply use your tagging gun to attach pants to the top part of the hanger so the garment will not slide. Onesies, socks, tights, hats and infant mittens need to be in a clear zip-lock bag (you may group multiple items in one bag). Please be sure to label your tag well so that customers know if the items are short-sleeve onesies or long-sleeve onesies.

Price:  Hanging Clothing - Put outfits/set together to price for at least $3.00; Start at $3 for basic, generic brand

Tag:  Clothing on Hangers - Attach tag with a tagging gun or safety pin to the label of shirt or upper right front of pants. Insert the gun in a label or inside seam NOT through part of the clothing (to avoid making a hole or tear in the clothing). Also, pull on the tag to make sure it is properly secured and will not come off easily. Please make sure consignor tags are pulled out of the clothing so they are easily visible to the customers. 

Non-Hanging Clothing - Please use tagging gun or safety pins to attach tags to onesies, socks, tights, infant mittens, and accessories. Be sure to also attach multiple pieces together. Then put these items into clear zip-lock bags. Please do not tape bags closed - shoppers want to feel and inspect items before purchasing. (link to tagging video)
