General Information

Winter: October 1 – January 31

Spring: February 1 - April 30

Summer:   May 1 – July 31

All clothes must be freshly washed. This means washed within the last 36 hours, period. This insures you make the most for your items. It also gives our customers the comfort in knowing all of the items in our store are fresh and clean! All larger items must be clean, free of dust and freshly wiped down with anti-bacterial cleaner.

Setting up an account is quick and easy. It takes about 10 minutes. An appointment must be made in advance to drop off ANY items. Each consignor is welcome to bring in a maximum of 40 items within a 60 day period and all 40 items must be dropped off together at one appointment.This includes clothes, toys, and gear. No exceptions. This ensures that we are able to process your items in a timely fashion. We also ask that you check with us before bringing large items (strollers, excersaucers, bassinets, highchairs etc) to ensure that we have space for them.

Please take a few moments to look through and make sure your items are flaw free. Accepted items need to be freshly washed from a smoke-free home, free of stains, tears, missing snaps or buttons, broken zippers, or visible wear. Place your multi-piece groupings together … they sell better than individual items, which means more money back in your pocket! We’re always looking for baby gear in meticulously clean condition, as if you were giving it to your own child! Please make sure your items include fresh batteries, and all original parts – as well as the instruction manual if you still have it.

 

 

When you drop Please give us 5-10 minutes to sort your items. You can browse or shop in the store. We’ll call you by name when we’re finished and we’ll give you back the items we can’t take.

 

We retain the right to donate any items of clothing to our worthy local charities if it is found to have flaws or stains after you leave the store

 

When your items sell, you will receive 40% of the final sale price. You can purchase from your account anytime, or be paid out. Balances of $50 or less will be paid out in cash at any time, balances of $50 or more will be paid via cheque, but you must notify us 24 hours in advance to pick up a cheque. 

Please ensure that the specified conditions are met (including equipment and toys) as we do not have the facilities in our shop nor the time to clean your items.
